The good news is that we went over 72 hours through our launch without a single crash AND if you can tell from the Server Status it looks like plenty of people found out about our launch. Overall we are very excited with the general status of things and do hope a lot of the new players giving us a try choose to stick around and enjoy our little community here.
Now that the 'major' updates were largely done through beta we are going to be taking this opportunity to flesh out and tweak systems further. Probably the largest change will be trying to give more identity to both the food groups, AND the recipes. Right now they are largely the same and the incentive to make different food groups just doesn't feel appropriate as well as the 'niche' people get in where they simply find one recipe and stick to it. For our first balance change we have decided to nerf the early game "Roasted" recipes. Going a step further we then lowered the recipe costs on almost ALL recipes so they are less frustrating to compile together as well as attempted to give each food group one food that gives a VERY generous amount of biles but wipes that food group out for the session, as well as one food group that is quite spammable but less effective per use. We also increased the power of the early game snack foods.

Also, we identified an issue that has been causing some abnormal lag on the servers. Providence may need to come down again in the next hour for further diagnosis and may have abnormal lag after this restart while we run some diagnostics on it. Popham should be largely unaffected.
