Clicked on the "Read More" link.

...

Reading the exact thing, verbatim, is not "more".

Please provide "more" information.

Probably some bug fixes. There's also the junior officer weekend event.

I understand the idea that putting up new content for the weekend is a hook... but this also risks server stability just before every weekend when your service is more utilized than ever. Having been operationally responsible for many large customer facing services, I've never heard of anyone scheduling maintenance just *before* their busiest days/hours as the normal mode of operation.

Didn't we just do this yesterday?

I suppose we won't see release notes until after the downtime? Again.

I suggest renaming it "Groundhog Day Online".

Actually since they have identified the memory leak problem as the main culprit that causes crashes it seems prudent to reset the system right before the weekend rush starts to reduce the chances of said memory leak eating up enough resources to cause a crash during the busiest time.

To my knowledge they have not found the cause of the memory leak and are instead scheduling maintainence to clear the buildup before it causes the unexpected, but expected crash.
