Hmmm. I heard about new servers then noticed how fast my login was last night.
Perhaps it was just coincidence for me to have such a fast login experience when few people were logging in and I let rumors coincide with that?
Hmmm.. I swore someone told me they added new servers. I'm going to have to ask around again.
EDIT: Nope, I was right...
So, we tore apart our logs and began doing a lot of extra optimization work even while we stumbled upon some truly bizarre crashes that can only appear with this sort of load. The result? The shard has been steadily improving over the first few days of Open Beta. Given the hardware we're adding and a couple more fixes we have in the pipe, shard performance and stability should continue to improve over the coming week.
