    Yay! Electron changes! Here's hoping it shapes up. Though, there have been some complaints that I'm concerned about.

    Still. Yay!

    Aw, the glider pad thing makes me sad.

    So invasion happened with 1 person on shard. By the time sh fell there were 3.

    Invasions should clearly not happen right after a patch.

    3.7 GB worth of updated files? What the heck is in there aside from some number balancing stuff mentioned in the patch notes.

    Haha, I just experienced the same thing with the shard I was on. They got two generators down, but we managed to pull through and keep the last one alive with the handful of us that were there.

    thanks for the particle beam fix, but what about the healing component for the dragonfly's emergency response?

    also, thanks for catching all the bugs we found on PTS!

    it started spawning stage 4 resources over the weekend (got some purple biopoly, and a few blues spawned)
