I never really got why Origin was added.. I know it's been used in the past as the first production shard to receive publishes, but is this the only reason it was ever created in the first place? Using a production shard as a publish testing server is kind of a bad idea for obvious reasons, and adding a shard to a game that is likely losing more players than it is gaining will not do much but spread players out even more. Can someone shed some light!? Gracias.
