"perfect update" what ?? the fact that normal servers have any connection whatsoever to the TLP's that they're merging because they're so unpopular now is problem #1. Each server can be (and should be) independent in its database structure. Things that cross servers like transfers or even sending tells back and forth simply go through a handshaking system and they pass or fail according to criteria. We (as in live server population) should not be having any additional downtime as a result of problems with merging TLP's together. If that it so, something is very very wrong with the main programming and structure of EQ itself smh. Please don't call that update perfect ever again. Sure its nice to see feedback but how about getting it all right in the first place at the higher level. Test is clearly independent of all the other servers so they CAN do it. In fact its absurd for each server to not have the ability to be up or down at any given moment without any reliance on a different server. Keep TLP's completely separate off on their own little island where they belong.
