Reception

Patch Star Citizen Alpha 3.17.1 was published to the LIVE branch the day before the event was starting, on May 19. The event then started on the 20th with a few problems, such as not being able to login, getting long login queues before being able to play, character reset queues, ships duplicating or in-game social services being down. CIG developers were quick to respond, fixing the worst issues, but a "degraded performance" warning was still active on the status page.[8] Throughout the week, there were still occasional issues, most notably social services often being down. This kept players from seeing or using their friends list, unable to make parties, and the in-game global chat channel would also be unavailable.
