Picked up the Pre-order, finally completed the D/L, and I am currently working my way through the early missions in the Open Beta...

Anyone else playing?

Oh, and if you are and want to add me to your friend list, I am listed as QorDaq in game...

Plan on minimal SF faction play, just long enough to get into the Klingon faction (There are level requirements)...

Let me tell you what happened to me with the STO beta last week. Thursday I was finally able to find a server to download the 7 GB beta at a decent speed. Only took about 4 hours. Then after I install it, I log on and have to download another 5 GB of patches. Since I did not have time to download it that night, I download the patches friday. I thought yay I finally get to play. In the middle of making my first character, the server goes down for emegency maintence. An hour later its back up and I am able to finally to make my character and start through the tutorial. Right after the space combat part, I get kicked again. Then every time I try to log back on to play this past weekend I get "server busy, please try again later."

So as much as I love Star Trek, I am going to have to pass on this one. Paying 50 bucks for a game, and another 15 bucks a month for a game I MIGHT get a chance to play does not sound like a good investment to me.

But on the other hand, it means I have more cash for Dwarven Forge. :cool:

Hmmm, does anyone have a FREE Beta key? I'm always concerned about paying for BETA games since there not very stable (as you can see by KenM's msg) but I would play it if it were free during the BETA period. Hell, I'd even report all the bugs I find for free!!! :D

If you do have a BETA key available send one my way...thanks!

It is *beta* right now, so it would not be fair to judge them yet. As far as betas go, this one is doing pretty good, they just need more resources, which is a lot easier to fix than other issues they could be having. The game itself seems fairly stable.

Yes it is Open Beta so there are still a few rough patches, but it is VERY playable. I will definately continue to play (and pay). This all said, there are still many little ways that the Developers (Cryptic Studios) can improve this game, but they are community minded folks from what I can tell, and I anticipate ongoing improvements long after release.

Hope to see some of the DF crew over there at some point...

If anyone picks up the full version, let me know if they fixed the connection issues. I just went to the STO site. It says servers are down for maintence. Don't they know its a bad idea to have the servers down on fricking launch day? *sigh* They know peopel will want to play when they get the game, so why did'nt they plan for it? Blizzard did not have the servers down when the first WoW expansion launched.

Launch day is 10am PST, so it's still an hour away. As for WoW, I play that too, and know that when a patch comes out, don't plan on anything that day due to lag, reboots and other issues.
