Connection is appalling.
I have a Virgin Media 30mbps internet connection and have ZERO problems on all my games except this one. I can play DCUO for hours with no trouble, Champions Online, no problem... yet Star Trek Online ALWAYS within about 5 minutes of playing spouts a "Server Not Responding" message and kicks me back to login.

I am getting sick of this as I cannot seem to maintain connection long enough to complete the first mission. I have tried setting the proxy to EU and US in the launcher options... nothing is working.

Please help?

Please?

Did you email STO support? Maybe they're having an outage. I've played the game in the past & haven't had any issues. Been away for a bit & going to fire it up shortly though.

I tried to but their online form is terrible. Can't select the game to talk about and it keeps refreshing.

Next time you get disconnected, do a continous ping test to patchserver.crypticstudios.com

If the ping -t is fine, than the gameserver has a problem with your connection. I'd suggest changing your IP (residential Virgin? Usually a quite router reset/etc, does the trick).

I've had this issues my self in the beginning for 2012, when I started sto. I still havent heard back on my attempts to make contact with cryptic to resolve this issue.
As luck would have it, I had a torrent client running in the background once I tried to play, and I could stay online for hours.
Not that I recoment using torrents, but doing so may help your connection issues

It's utterly absurd that you need to have a torrent running to keep the STO connection stable but it does work...

Confirmed, yet weird, fix.
