I am stuck at 95% of the patch. And a snail moves faster for this last five. At this rate I doubt I will get in today.

EDITED: Well I got in and created my Romulan. Then I made the mistake of changing characters. I wanted to unlock Remans. But now can't get to the login screen.

Mine patched ok. But now I'm getting "Login failed for unknown reasons."

I'm guessing that pretty much means the servers are full.

Nah, if the servers are full, it will put you into a queue. Must be something else.

Gah! So close! I got in, starting making a Romulan character, and then got disconnected from the Login server!

Yeah, not surprised by the server issues, they are groaning from the stress. I finally got booted after playing for a fer hours... hoping I can get back in.

edit: Oh yeah, login failure issues... it's gonna be a while.

yep, another bangup job from Cryptic. If it was the first time or two, I'd fully understand, but this happens EVERY time, and they can't seem to anticipate it. Managed to patch, but can't retrieve my characters once I start log-in, so guess i'm not playing today...

A queue you'd expect if it was a heavy load. Cryptic seems to prefer the buggy, frustrating crash instead, as that's been their go-to. If they can't up the capacity, why not use the queue system to MANAGE that load and only allow the number they can handle? Instead, rush and crash. Yay...

Some alerts about issues from the forums:

Jolan tru Captain!

Welcome to Legacy of Romulus!

*!*!*We are investigating an issue where some players are seeing a "login failed for unknown reason" error at the log-in screen.*!*!*

We are investigating a bug where some Gold Members may not have received their additional character slot -- details here (Will be fixed ASAP!).

UPDATE! We are also investigating reports of slow patching and are working on a resolution. For a better patch experience, please restart your launcher. It will pick up where it left off and should be faster to complete.

If you have purchased a Legacy or Starter Pack, please see this thread for instructions on how to claim your items in-game.

If you have additional questions about the Legacy or Starter pack, please read this FAQ.

Thanks, and we'll see you in-game!

- The Star Trek Online Team

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

I cant fathom why, oh why, they didn't take all that $$$$$$ from the legacy packs and lifetime membership sales and UPGRADE the servers to be able to handle the load... where oh where just does all that money go, DEV night at the strip club?!?!?
