    Worst customer service ever (AT&T Broadband)

    quote:Originally posted by Advil: Time for another rant. /rant on My cable connection (AT&T) has been down for 13 days now. The problem has had nothing to do with their acquisition of @home, my service worked fine for almost a week after the conversion. The problems started when I decided to switch to a cable modem that I purchased. This is supposed to save you $10 a month. The procedure is clearly listed on their web page as something you can do and should be "no problem." Well, the first person who put the paperwork through screwed something up. My service ended up disconnected. So we started calling tech support. For the first several days we were speaking with Level 1 support, and the hold times were well over an hour each time. Then we started getting routed to the level 2 support. This is insane, because to get to them you have to talk to level 1 first and give then your service number. So you spend around 1 hour on hold to talk to level 1, and then up to 3 hours on hold waiting to get through to level 2. We have made calls to level 2 several times, and our total time on hold must be well over 15 hours by now. It getts better. It wasn't until the last 4 days (of 13 so far) that our problem was actually sent to be worked on, according to the last tech I talked to. They were supposed to have a person call me back twice so far during all this, and have not. This all built up to the last call I made to them last night. The guy told me: 1) We don't know when we will get you turned back on. 2) I can't tell you who knows that. 3) I can't give you the phone number for anyone in sas (the network division) 4) You will get an automated phone call when its resolved, not a human one. 5) There is no one past me in tech support, even for unique problems. 6) I have no boss that you may speak to. 7) There is no complaint department for you to call. I'm not really angry yet, what's the point? There's no one for me to yell at, but if I get asked if they need their monopoly of the cable system broken, I'll vote hell yes. If I treat one of my customers even half this badly, I'd be lucky if all they did was go somewhere else. /rant off good old dial-up modem works just fine for my uses...lol

    Best planets/moons to mine

    quote:Originally posted by Outlaw: Mining? Bah, I get more creds scooping up juicy cargo pods after taking out carriers and cruisers that get in my way than waiting for the drones to fill up. I hope the debris fields come back in a later patch though. All in all, u get more from combat but that's just me. Oh BTW, choosing a Raider career helps too 'cuz almost all NPC's want a piece of u. Reap your rewards well chummers! I know what you mean, but right now I have to stick to mining planets and stuff because I have not quite mastered the art of destroying other ships yet...either they kill me first, or they hyperjump out, or my friends kill em first. But, it never hurts to have the drones collecting things while your off galabanting around the galaxy .... Nick [ 12-13-2001: Message edited by: voyager ]

    The Tapes..........

    I say we find him, take him alive and ship him to New York, chain him up and make him help clean up the World Trade center with his bare hands. And anybody who wants to spit on him let them. I tell you what, I live in Michigan, and if they did this I would be on the first flight to New York to spit on his face.

    I saw a vision!

    oh no, red shirts (newbies) goin down? I dont think so, I been train hard and I think I am gonna do pertty goo--*Sees fleet comming into range* "Helm set course for earth maximum speeds!!!!!!!!!!!!!" multiplayer; exposing what the universe will really be like in a 1000 years or so...

    I saw a vision!

    (forgive spelling mistakes in advance if any) Lady's and Gentlemen; I have had a vision. A vision in which I nearly jumped out of my seat in excitement. I was readng a few post about traders ect.. being attacked nd what not, and one person said "In MP why not hire somebody to protect you?" and then after that there was a whole bunch of offers ect...and talk about police keeping the space lanes free ect..... Well what my point is, and which Im sure most of you already know this.. Multiplay is going to be awesome!!! I mean think about it, hyperspaceing in to the earth system with 70-80 ships going about there business, or wanting to mine from Mars, you jump in and there is a whole war going on, your at the front lines..police ships jumping in from all sectors, super cruiser after super crusier comeing in as you take your trade ship dogging on comming fire, lasers whisping towars you...it all reminds me of Star Trek and Babylon 5 ect....... My bottom point is THIS IS GONNA BE SWEET... like I said most of you guys already know that..but it just hit me and I had to write this down...

    Tutorial

    Dude, I understand it will be ready when its ready, I was mearly stateing that if EB is correct it will be out the 4th. I understand with all the people going on about it takes them so long. my motto is "The longer they take, the bigger, better it is" and they could take a whole nother year and add all there features in. I would mind that, but hey the game would be more! cheers, Nick

    Tutorial

    Thank you both for offering to pre-order for me;however (if) EB is right on the release date for BCM (Sept.4th) which I hope they are!(anybody know for sure, I live in the U.S) so thats really only 12 days away until then Ill try not to play the demos more than 90 times a day *biggrin* Erm, the game will be comming with a good manual right? Battle Cruiser 3000 came with a dinky pamplet. Ohh well Thanks again Nick

    Tutorial

    ohh great! I have a feeling Im gonna have to read before I play then...most games I rip out and install ASAP lol...Belive me I would have pre ordered the game ages ago, but Im not old enough to have a credit card. and me mums not to fond of useing hers online. one other quick question, in the final version will there be an option to be a trader? or is that just online? I cant wait to pop up during a big fight offering spare parts. I have to have a good ship though...dont want the other ships thinking Im takeing sides. Ahh well g2g! *Pulls out printed copy of readme for the demo and starts to read* BTW, thank you guys who replyed!

    Tutorial

    Hi everybody, I would just like to say Im the newist "newbie" to the fourm and to the game. But however.. I am not a "newbie" in the pc gameing world. I am a rather good FPS and RTS. I read about BCM on the net. and the whole Idea of it made me go out to the mall to EB and ask for it. not relizeing it wasnt out yet so today I downloaded the first demo. and even the LC version looked VERY VERY VERY GREAT!!!!! I loved it!!!!!!! but, like I said Im a newbie and all I could do was fly around with a very big grin on my face. Anyway...let me get to the whole point of my topic.... In the final version released in stores, will there be like a tutorial mission? or a very good guide book? because this is gonna take me some time to learn. But (if the guys who made the game read this) u made a very kick butt game!
