I am not sure what some people are thinking but this is personally pissing me off.
I am not playing with "crap hardware"
I do not have some "crap connection"
This is however "crap" when i do absolutely nothing and get the minidump or maybe i get lucky and get through a game.
This being said, we have had a ton of time throughout beta for these guys to figure this out before it is a live game and here we are, with this problem, still occuring. This would be different if this game was built from the ground up but this IS an expansion on an existing platform. To really get the ball rolling, some of the faults and glitches we saw in the beginning were some that they have had to fix with diplomacy and other versions. i.e. the ships ending up 4 million miles above a planet, never to return happened i believe in diplomacy.
One issue is that someone let that slip in, again.
All the ranting aside, i appreciate the effort to give us a kewl game to a series i personally love. But i paid for a game and i would prefer not to sink 4 hours in before it takes a total crap. Time; I do not have all day to reset and hope for the best again.
