If anyone here is use to any type of Database work should know this.

 

Simple Answer: If R* is going to hand out a payment to everyone in the met criteria that would involve updating a tradmendous amount of rows across several tables in several databases. If they were to write an update statement into SQL that would effect a few million people (being conservative on the number), this would cause major row locks on records. Locking too many rows at once in a system with many transactions can cause an application to hang.Thus they will need to spread it out over groups.

What's this I detect????  Someone that approaches this topic with logic?  Are you also one that defends the growing pains that the online gameplay has experienced because you have knowledge of how systems and networks operate when under heavy stress?

 

Hat's off to you sir!  I appreciate someone with a post like this much more so than someone talking out of their @ss that has know understanding of coding/networks/database

 

Good post.

Agreed, I fully expected the usual title claiming official news and then total speculation or outright bullsh*t, refreshing to see an educated post for once.
