It's just one shard for everyone.
Although in the State of the Beta Address they mentioned they'd run a test shard for trialling future changes.

That's the head start - any account with a "Pre-order" key attached to it can play it before hand.

Two days left and I'm still on the fence about the lifetime... so many reasons not to do it (Cryptic's treatment of Champions Online and the cost), but man... I really want to do it to not have the pressure of a subscription.

Shouldn't the servers be running by now?

I can't login apparently.

I'm getting "Unable to authenticate." Probably issues with high load. More than a few people took the day off to play.

Yeah, I get the same exact message. If you notice, they shut down their forums and you are not able to log in on their website either. All brilliant moves as no will be able to know what the heck is going on.

Re: Star Trek: Online

Same here.
Was to be expected, of course. There aren't many servers that could handle this mass of simultaneous requests.

The boards are down, because they're "resetting" them as well. Just like they did after closed beta.

Thanks!

Lifetime...I dunno. If I'd done lifetime with City of Heroes (had it been offered) it would have paid for itself years ago.

I've been able to login but am not seeing the option to create a Borg character for my lifetime subscriber bonus. Anyone else able to and maybe I'm just missing it?

Go in with a human character then when you get in game go to the cryptic store. there will ba a tab for special offers. You can then activate the Borg option there.

I knew it, I didnt think so soon......apparently a player has taken it upon himself to report ALL Character and ship names he feels are NOT CANON.

I saw this in a pvp zone chat tonight. This person, who i am NOT going to name, reported a bunch of us for "non canon and nonsensical" toon and ship names.

I want a Dev or GM response on what the guidelines are for naming because if some probably overweight hot pocket eater has appointed himself "naming sheriff" then I want this nipped in the bud NOW
