Just so you're aware, there was an update last night. It's about 4GB in size, so might be worth doing before Friday evening. (Although I'd imagine there might be more updates before the beta weekend anyway...)

Also worth pointing out last time the servers were started AT LEAST 45 minutes before official start time.   I know this because I started up quarter past for funzies...then said woot.

I'll be firing up at 7 BST.

no big deal, just 85,000 new files...

note that because of this, even people on leet connections will still take a fair whack of time to download them, as it's spending more time setting up the new file that it is actually downloading it

i'm liking what they have changed and it's an interesting change in the skills system.

technically the skills change is a nerf - it means you can't save up for a nice high-powered skill at the beginning of the game - but it makes sense, and the skills list WAS far too random before

if they've implemented the overflow changes the way that blog implies, we should be able to get _MORE_ than 5 people in the same overflow by judicious use of swapping between parties.
