Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Nex Machina » About server problems

Hi everyone!

There has been an increased amount of reports during the past few days about various server problems including the availability of online arena, leaderboards and player customization. We’ve investigated the issue and it would seem that the cause of the problem are the recent patches to the Meltdown vulnerability.

After the patch our backend server has experienced 4-5 times bigger load than it did before. This has caused the unexpected issues that you are currently experiencing in Nex Machina. You can see the impact of the patch in the picture below.

We are trying to mitigate the effects to the best of our ability. You can expect issues during the next two weeks as due to the nature of the problems we’ll pretty much have to test the fixes in live environment. Meanwhile we ask for your patience and please continue reporting any issues that you may experience. Thank you for understanding.
