Hit me harder

    Hi there,

    The long-awaited web-based Starbound character generator is ready! All systems are go. But we're huge jerks, so we also thought this might be a great opportunity to stress-test the servers to ensure that they can handle the sort of traffic we're likely to see at release.

    ...so we need you to refresh this page. A lot. Like, a million times. No, I'm not even kidding. Tell your friends to come refresh it too!

    When the thread reaches one million views, we'll release the hostages the character generator.

    EDIT: You guys did such a wonderful job breaking the forums, that we've already found out everything we wanted to. So we're going to release the chargen early.

    Okay, go get everyone you know. We need to save the hostages character generator from Omni's evil clutches.

    Luckily, I have two monitors and play all my games in windowed mode, so I can F5 this page all day.
