The 1st variant since Delta that looks quite concerning. Awaiting functional assessment data for the impact of extensive spike (and other) mutations. Does not follow the theorized “Delta plus” expected path of a new VoC/variant of interest

I’m reading about the latest New World patches with bugs worse than what they’re supposed to fix and wow. I want to read the eventual case study on Amazon’s management disasters in their games division, because this is amazing and horrifying to watch.

Never any regrets putting Rust into production. The language and its ecosystem are accessible. The results have been high-quality. We haven't had any super-demanding workloads, mind you. (Most of us don't.)

The Embarcadero Freeway really was surreally horrific

The UX is an unfinished mess with hilarious machine translation everywhere, but the meat of the game is solid. If you like this sort of thing, you'll like MoE.

If you aren't sure it's your jam, here's ESO's livestream from character creation on:

There's also a major social component with guilds + alliances and some large, difficult PvE goals, as well as straight-up full-loot PVP on (optional) pvp servers. The overall goal is empire-building and territory conquest.
