Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Hmm, it's KINDA working, but not quite there yet.

Also, not loving the queue at the moment. Even with the LTS "priority login" thing going, I'm 1000th in line...

I'm at 1337, with LTS. Damn.

Edit: Quickly dropped to 1278, but still waiting.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Ha, I finally got to the end of the line, and it gave me an error: Got Duplicate Login Success", whatever the hell that means. Back of the line, now 1400th in line.

God, I hate this game sometimes...

They appear to have the server capacity to do fine for the regular crowds. When they release any sort of content, we're so starved for it that more people log in, and they can't seem to plan for, or accomodate, that amount. Not saying they have to have enough capacity to serve EVERYONE at once, but they should at least be able to handle a decent amount, or their high water mark for previous logins. Just eating our money and not upgrading capacity to accompdate the people that are paying...?

759 now. Should be on in another ten minutes.

(Famous last words).

Does someone need to set up the starbase on the KDF side, too? I'm at the lowest end of the fleet totem pole, so I can't do it.

Got disconnected while in the queue.

EDIT: Yes, the KDF base needs setup as well.

EDIT 2: And now I can't even connect to the login server.

Just got disconnected while in the queue, too. Crap.

EDIT: Doesn't look like I can even log on right now.

Impressive how Cryptic handles itself. Seems like every big event, they take something that should be a GOOD, POSITIVE thing, and manage to use it to piss people off instead. Server capacity, crashes, FEs so obviously bugged that they shouldn't have come out, half of the season releases so far, etc.

Is it that hard to do a little quality control before releasing? No one's FORCING them to release on this schedule, or after only one quick (holiday) weekend of testing. Take a couple extra days and get it halfway stable first. Then people might enjoy it instead of being pissed off by it...

They need a bigger server farm...

OK, I think I'm gonna give up for the evening. What're the chances of it being more stable tomorrow?

*spies tumbleweed*

Yeah, thought so.

Can't seem to get on. I'll try later this afternoon, but probably won't get on until tomorrow.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

GIve it a bit. Despite the banner that tells us that 'Normal Game Play is not affected', it's currently a combination of not connecting to the login server, or getting in, waiting in queue, and THEN getting dumped out.

Not sure why they wouldn't just leave it down until it's actually WORKING, instead of letting people get frustrated by trying something that SAYS it should work, but doesn't. Then again, that's the kinda brilliant PR I'm talking about...
