Like it or not, many many many players are not happy with the new queue system for fleet actions.

Queues for private instances of fleet actions ... great.

Queues for public instances of fleet actions ... NOT working.

... especially Starbase 24.

I want to know what was wrong with Starbase 24 the way it was for the open instances?

What was wrong with it cycling through on the clock as it did and having people simply drop by them.

It has nothing to do with doing them solo. ... It has to do with the fact that we *had* (past tense) a great deal of fun in Starbase 24.

There were always people there, and we had fun doing out thing there.

It was a place to unwind ... A place to test weapons ... A place to at times socialize. .... It was a place to have fun.

Now since the launch of Season 4 ... I have only managed to get into in one time ... just once of sitting in queues and waiting.

And Starbase 24 is *not* the only fleet action affected.

These new queues are game changing .... in a *bad* way.

My signature asks the question .... "Did you mean to kill fleet actions?"

As a journalist in real life, I have to ask the questions that I know myself and others want to know ...

"If not, why are their no official comments or responses to the concerns expressed by a great many players?"

... and ...

"Isn't it true that these concerns were raised on Tribble several days before Season 4 was scheduled to launch?"

"Are there any plans to address the problem? ... If so, what are those plans?"

Valid questions respectfully asked ... not to stir up trouble, but because we want to know.

I love popping into SB 24 to do some butt kicking and have fun. For me it is a real challenge to keep an escort alive in that maelstrom. Now I don't have the option and I find the game less fulfilling. I hope they return the open instances ASAP.

I know DStahl said they would be watching over the coming weeks, but I think its very apparent from the mass of threads and comments, its a game killer. Can we get an update?

I guess another question would be to ask if Starbase 24 could be separated from the rest ... different rules for it or some such.

Removal of gameplay is a bad thing, sadly it seems like no one cares, it isn't about playing alone, it is about not having to sit and wait to play in a manner we have been playing since the game was in beta. There is nothing wrong with private instances, but bring back the open public one that no one had to wait to enter. It was never a solo instance, it was a no waiting drop in and play for EVERYONE.

Well being here since Beta I noticed once the queues came in for SB 24 and some of the others Halting the Gorn advance etc. that the queues do not work. People do their private thing and some of us are not invited. So to me this system should be removed and let us have our fun back. Not everything needs a queue system, I have tried SB24 and halting the gorn advance and gave up there is less help and the wait times are stupid. Bring these back to their original states please................................

i prefer the new system, specially that it split up the level ranges into diffrent areas, so we don't have a mix of levels in them.

also to answer on my precius post in another thread.

by bigger groups i mean the fact that you can enter more then 5 people into a fleet action, but you can only be 5 in a group.

and as a healer or any support character for that mather it helps to have everyone inside that particular fleet action on your ui insted of having to click on another group member, character by character and hope you can trigger a heal in time.

aka, if you already are more then 10 or so in a fleet action you may as well get them on the same group ui as well, insted of the limited 5.

this has nothing to do with the fact that it's hard to get into the areas now.
even tho it's still possible tho.

cheers.

I'd really love to hear the answers to these questions.

As stated in the other thread, SB24 was my favorite place with the limited play time I have and now I am looking for options but there are none...

These did not have to be mutually exclusive. Open instance and PvE queues should've complemented themselves.

Shoehorning fleet actions toward PvE queue access was a monumental mistake. I think this is one instance where Dev design and the insistence to stick to it does not match the goal of making it fun.

Maybe different instances for each rank, but a queue was never needed.
