Sorry lifers, if Headstart is any indication, you'll lose money on the deal, because the game will shut before you get your money's worth, due to severe instability and poor software quality control.
It wouldn't be the first time that happened. And Atari seems so money-centered, they likely will shut it down too soon rather than not make enough money.
Come on Cryptic, despite the bustin on you, I want this game to work. Its got a lot of rough spots in the mechanics, the instanced adventures get a bit monotonous, but its Trek, and that means somethign to us Trek fans!
God help you on 2/2 when a lot of first time MMO'ers get here and the system collapses again.
That is what Im afraid of, what will happen this Tuesday when everyone else gets on. This is like the 4th or 5th time it crashed today, I dont know whats going on and the Devs not saying anything. I rather have the whole thing brought down for a day so it can be fixed, than having it crash every 2 hours or so.
Yeah I don't even know if I should even bother trying to login on Tuesday or Wednesday. I know there is gonna be a ton of downtime. Its even possible that the entire opening day is gonna be one big downtime, that has happened with other MMO's but their names escape me as of right now.
2/2 will not be any worse than this weekend was. This game does not have millions of players like a WoW, I imagine the majority preordered the game and have been playing on their weekend off during this headstart. If anything I expect 2/2 to be smoother since it'll be a weekday and the more "mature" crowd STO attracts will be busy with both work and school.
