This actually isn't a post of WAHH THIS GAME SUCKS.. It is straight to the point. In a way, we were offered the option to pay to get a head start. And like was mentioned, due to downtime this hasn't happened. I just don't think they can legally list on websites "get a headstart" as a feature and not really offer it.
Also, I like the game, I am thinking about subbing, but still holding out to see what happens.
I made it to Lt. Comm in one day... I will probably make it to Commander before the game launches, regardless of server issues.
Any lvl above level 1 is a headstart when compared to the people who will play after Feb 2nd.
That being said, I fail to see your point. Cryptic never guaranteed you a perfect headstart. They just guaranteed you access to the servers before launch. Despite there being maintenance and such, you still have access before the official launch.

Every game launch has issues, I personally just expected more foresight from Cryptic. This isn't their first game release, they should of expected issues such as pbase caps. I mean it's Star Trek, did they really expect basic servers to be able to handle the fanbase?
