The tick is taking longer and longer. I need to find ways to speed it up. Some starting points:
- Move archived data (past rounds) into a different db and/or server.
- Optimize the tick script itself.
- Optimize the game’s data structures that are most impacted by the tick.
- Pay for a better-performing server.
- Split the Tick on a single server so that galaxies don’t all have to update at the same time.
