What is going on with STO?

#1 Posted by RiotBananas (3600 posts) -

Seriously can somebody update me? Because Cryptic are living up to their name.
 
I've been attempting to play since release, it's been 5 days and I must have 4 hours of play time, purely because I either can't get onto the server or because it's been so damn laggy it's been unplayable.
 
That's 5 days off my Free time which I am guessing Cryptic won't be willing to refund. In my opinion this game wasn't fit to be released in the state it is in. All I've had are bad experiences and now they've had the cheek to "Silence" me for voicing my opinions to them ingame, so that's 24 hours without Chat. What's the point in playing an MMO if you can't talk to the other players.
 
So why are so many people protecting Cryptic for not giving us any information about what's going on other than "We're bringing to server down for a patch" and the odd useless Release Note with no detail what-so-ever.
 
Losing my patience.

You must have been very unlucky, cause this has been one of the smoother releases I've played in terms of an mmo.

Unlucky indeed.  I played quite a bit over the weekend and everything was fine aside from some menu lag here and there.

Yeah I managed to play pretty much all weekend with only a half hour downtime getting in the way.
 
The only pain for me was the sunday night queue, and they are wainting on new hardware to fix that anyway.

I have to admit I had some lag during the beta. I haven't played the final release yet so I can't say anything just yet. However, I have heard that they did have server overloads at the start of the game.

 31.6 hours played after release  
Only once have I had a server problem and that's when they were doing updates on it.

I spent several hours on it & didn't have any issues. I did on Sunday morning but it only lasted about 15 minutes or so.

I've had no issues so far. Never had to queue up to get in; nuthin'. So far so good.
My only gripe is regarding the ground missions. The level design is terrible; they play more like obstacle courses than actual locations.

Set your proxy to "None". You should be alright after that.
