One the changes we've made is in relation to shutting down instance maps that you have just left and fixing some logic on the load balancer.
This along with more hardware should put us in better shape for tomorrow.
Since no one knows how many people will try to login for the episode, it is impossible to say if we are out of the wood.
I will say that we have made preparations, we have staff working the launch time window and we'll all be monitoring closely.
I appreciate the work that has gone in the last couple weeks to make these improvements in terms of both hardware and software fixes. But while improvements are good I want to know that it's enough, so I must ask is there a high confidence that with the changes now implemented that it would be able to at least handle the same load that last week had on Saturday?
