    With you on that.

    These rant threads come up every time the servers a down, that's why forum mods no longer leave maintenance threads open for discussion so this stuff doesn't get mixed up in there as it used to.

    There's little point to head-banging, if there's one thing I can say for certain, it's always best to do something else and let the tech team get stuff up and running again as they always do.
    You equally have to allow people to criticize your work or you lose your integrity, and that influences people quite a bit. I don't think this is that terrible I'm not ranting, just gave a bit of advice for what's going on :)

    It's healthy to vent. ;)

    Thanks for the update, Smirk, the progress report IS appreciated, in spite of all the rage being spouted on these forums. After all, the player base's favorite pastime IS bashing STO.

    Well, that really sucks.

    Thanks for keeping us in the loop. Hope that's a "Scotty" estimate you were given. XD

    2 Hours to go, I reiterate what I stated, think about giving out a small gift to all existing players, something that does not induce game play advantages, merely cosmetic or something that people can use to get whatever they want (To a degree, not saying give out 12000 Zen lol) Just an idea, you guys would know what best to give out as an apology :) Actions are louder then words :)

    I just don't know about this game anymore, and I wonder if it's worth the ever-mounting frustration. A magically-rearranging power tray, Boffs who desert their posts, Doffs who disappear from active rosters, glitchy missions, and sometime in the past month I'm pretty sure that about 10 million EC disappeared from one of my char's bank accounts. The list is seemingly endless.
    In one week I have gone from considering the purchase of yet another T6 ship, to wondering if this game is even worth the monthly sub fee.
    I suppose though, that as KDF and KDF-aligned Rom player, I should, by now, be used to being treated like a second-class citizen. =(

    Spikey
    =(

    Now it's another 2 hours before server is back up, so total downtime today is approaching 10 hours...

    Time to another game to invest time etc in,

    If you've come to the forums to complain about the AFK system, it's known to be bugged at the moment.

    Well bed time for some. Ah well I should have set up longer DOFF missions. Think of the lost metrics and all those traces I can't grind.

    erm Smirk I think it might be an idea for you to go and edit this thread:

    you must be kidding?

    patch days get longer and longer meanwhile
    why dont you simply shut down the server for the entire day each thursday?

    well, no... i have a better solution -> test the damn TRIBBLE before you release it!

    Yup rather annoying indeed bud, a lot of games do their updates etc. during EU prime time, because most of the companies that host/run these games are Asia/America based :/

    After going Gold 84 days ago, this is the 2nd time I have cancelled my subscription in a fit of frustration. I love the game when it works and especially the community, but I refuse to financially support a game that is broken and a company that charges such outlandish prices for in-game items.
    Pro-tip: The free-to-play game model is most profitable with MICRO-transactions, not MACRO-transactions.
    The cost of most ships is more than DLC for other games! Maybe you should make a new mini-game to play when the servers are down, to count how many times you see the words "buyer's remorse" in the forums in an alotted time. I would love to see this game prosper beyond 2015, but at the rate things are going it looks like that may be a pipe dream.

    Yes ;)

    It is also healthy to understand it's only a pastime and doesn't do jack to expedite getting the servers up any faster, which is physically beyond any of our powers to accomplish.

    At least we're keeping healthy. :D
