Have you tried to link to the Hood or the personal instance of the city? It may give you the same update but not take as long.
There has been 100 max population in the public city all day!
Nothing is happening yet. We got a KI mail from DRC that the Graet Zero calibration is completed and there will be a party tomorrow night at the Great Zero for the activation of it.
Other than that, we may get a little IC stuff going on in the cavern tonight, but I don't think we will get into Ercana till later on in the week.
I will keep you updated if something happens.
