just be happy the moderators are letting you vent, when SOE dropped the nge on its player base the forum banhammer was in action within minutes, whole threads deleted no posting on trial accounts it was classic
FYI game devs / GMs, we're not in beta any more. You are Live, headstart or not. Time to treat us like customers and at least give us a heads up prior to the downtimes you know about.
Hell i just got home and the servers are down for a supposed 2 hours. When i looked at what time they posted that at and what time it is now thats almost 3.5 hours ago now, if it was going to take extra time then why hasnt the message been changed accordingly. I mean I bought a lifetime membership but because of all the $$ i would be saving in the long run, but OMFG everytime I goto play STO its offline for "unexpected" or "emergency" maintenance. Dont get me wrong I love the game and everything but i would be loving the game a whole lot more if i actually got to play it as I am sure everybody else would. Perhaps buying newer better equipment and servers would be a better route for you to go or atleast have a backup system in place for us to be on while you work on the main one.
I just might have to go find another game to pass my time with everytime i am forced to sit here and wait for star trek offline to come back up, for another couple of hours before it goes back down.
I don't like all the maintenance but it is to be expected. Besides, the last time they took the servers down they implemented a patch that made all the loading and login issues much more barable. Patience my children.
a little more than a week ago there was a post saying they put a rush order on new servers.......you should have atleast three different servers before launch....not just one. Why havent you brought another server online yet
