For anyone giving @AxieInfinity a hard time, here's my take as a software engineer on what's going on and why you should be supporting them right now ❤️

***This is purely my opinion and not based on any official statement from the Axie Infinity team***

The issues are down to two root causes - one is sporadic DDoS attacks, but the main one is the unprecedented increase in DAU.

The unprecedented nature of the growth is important to focus on, because it could not possibly have been planned for or anticipated.

They are beyond the point where they can simply add compute power. They need to fundamentally redesign certain things which were never built for this scale.

(3 of 7)
They know what to do as its on their roadmap for 2022 but they did not anticipate having to do that work now.

That means they don't have the people hired to do it yet, as a tech start-up runs lean, and so this presents an enormous challenge.

(4 of 7)
Given the lack of planning to do the work now, the lack of people hired to do it and the unknown levels of growth ahead - it's simply not possible to say when it will be fixed.

This is the single most common argument I have had in my day to day job for my...whole career. Most people have no idea how hard tech is and how many moving parts there are, so they don't understand.

If the Axie team were fools, they would have made up a date to appease people in the short term, and then let everyone down when they don't hit it. But they are being 100% honest and transparent when they say they don't know and they are trying their best.
