Was thinking about the biblical thing as well. Especially an old Hollywood movie, with this grand flood that was said to cost them a few extras. Not sure if it was "The Ten Commandments", or something even older. But the imagery tantalizes.
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?
They honestly had high confidence last week; but with something this complex, they won't know with 100% certainty until the episode goes live on the 19th and they see what happens when all the players hit it. DStahl's already posted a number of times this week that they think they have the issues that caused problems the last two weeks resolved (there was a small patch to tribble Thursday night - which had no patch notes, and wwhen asked in the TTS channel live on the Tribble serve Salami_Inferno said that it was last minute stability fixes for the weekend ythat would go Live on Friday's (this morning's) patch; and that were he not so 'hammered' at work making sure these got out in time; he would have done another Tribble patch notes post for that patch.
We'll know for sure one way or the other tomorrow. (And I hope for the best and thank the STO team accross the board for all the work they did in preperation for this weekend, and I hope everything goes well.
Gah. I am really itching to know what the reward is. More surprisingly, i want to find out what happens with the story though. It has gotten more involving as it goes on, and that cheeky screenshot of Episode 5's cityscape has me, quite frankly, wet.
