A bug that involved Romulan Liberated Borg captains and their skills once they chose an ally
If they had just told us that there is a problem keeping them from having all servers up. and that this way, at least some people could play... I would have found this quite acceptable. Perhaps they will update us soon.
Wait a minute...there are more than one game server? And they're offline?
Guess thay'll turn them on at launch, eh?
Pre-Order, get the "special treatment." :p
If I'm right, those are physical machines.
See, a "server" in an MMO can be a collection of many physical machines. The physical hardware is what takes the player's input, processes it, then outputs it to the rest of the game universe and you. Each server in WoW, for example, could be one or many physical machines. In STO, they are using a single shared server so if you had 4 physical machines, they would all be passing data between each other. You can add on to this shard almost without limitless without having to add more virtual servers.
However, without knowing how that information is gathered, we can't say if it's accurate. And even if it is, I'd wager that those other 3 servers are having problems.
