Following today's scheduled maintenance, the STO servers were hit with some unexpected downtime. Unfortunately for the game and it's players, this has been happening a bit often lately.
First, let's cover the first downtime. "No patch notes for tonight, no new patch. This is all performance and stability maintenance." said GM Destra on the official forums. Not even an hour after it came back up, though, the servers went critical and took a dump...
However, it only took a few minutes to get the servers back up despite all the rampant crying and complaining on the forums. God forbid they had to re-reboot the servers. The poor dev team gets ripped to shreds every time this happens. Of course, ALL MMOS HAVE STABILITY PROBLEMS WHEN THEY FIRST START!
Also what about the fact that WoW's downtimes are 3 times as long usually because of this very same issue? A patch that causes a crash or some sort of bug.
Anyhow, the servers are up, the game is running great, so give the devs a break, uh? And have a HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
UPDATE: Servers dropped again...perhaps it's a sign we should all be with our valentines instead of the computer...
