I was awake around 49 hours trying to keep things running smoothly before my body gave in and I began to lose feeling to my hands, at which point I forced myself to sleep. There seems to be someone out there who is adamant about making OWC run as bad as possible, and has found a way at making bancho suffer very servere memory consumption and spiking (looks to be a low-level .NET bug which I am nigh unable to fix). I am recovering my energy via sleep while attempting to keep bancho running and getting woken up every 30 minutes as a result.

I hope to setup a private server just for OWC use, but I doubt that will be possible before the rest of this weekend's matches.

no @osustatus updates = because i was mostly asleep.
matches rescheduled due to no streaming = because there were no backup streamers (?!!?) and i was asleep.
matches rescheduled due to unstable bancho = hopefully you can agree that this was out of our control.

Also do keep in mind that apart from bancho being maliciously attacked (and the website at times), we also hit a new user peak 20% higher than ever before, which put extra load on some parts of the system.

I could go on about what I should have done in preparation to make this run smoother, but that doesn't sound productive.

Please remain calm and request rematches if you were not offered them correctly. The tournament can always run over-time is necessary.

I think we all appreciate your dedication to making the experience as smooth as possible - I certainly do. It would be preferable if there was another way to make the servers run as smoothly as possible without killing the lead developer of the game though...

Maybe during the weekdays when there are no matches it would be possible to debug and find at least the root cause of the problem? Maybe if it's an internal .NET problem some of us could try replicating the problem ourselves given some vague information (obviously not reveal any game code or anything) and then pitch in if we come across a solution? Or is that too much?

Regardless, I wish you good luck on your debugging adventures!

Thanks peppy for the efforts you are putting in. I just hope who ever out there that is making Bancho a mess, rots in hell!..

Or it could be the multi spec client itself causing Bancho to rip into shreds.

I think so, too.

is it really multi spec? I think last year, they just had 8 different accounts to do spectating.
Pizzicato
well, it ran smoothly last year

I feel like you deserved that match entirely.

You still won in my heart.
