Hm, Alice probably has that prism thing inside her head controlling her as well. And it seems like Administrator is the one that appeared from way back in the season.

Wow, these threads are dead huh?

Rather odd to show a antagonist's backstory before properly introducing the person or thing itself. We only had very short out-of-context glimpse of the Admin before we supposed to care about her.

Just want to make a note that SAO is taking a week off this week for New Years, and will be back the week after that with Episode 13.

The way I see it, the problem is that they didn't play god enough. Some more omniscience/omnipresence (aka means to observe and debug Underworld) and a willingness to just reset the world would have meant not getting a world so screwed up.

Abusing the fast forward option causing them to miss the aberrations and neglecting to lock the fucking menu. This isn't a case of not playing god enough. It's sloppiness. Several aspects of the rpg like system like leveling up could've been done away with to prevent the existence of administrator. The whole premise of Wargames is that the US government forgot to tie up a loose end in its nuclear control system. Same basic principle here.

I put that in the same category as their general inability to observe the world.

That's not even a RPG thing. In a normal RPG, no matter how high leveled you are, you don't become an admin. It's just a weirdo bug that exists because the author needed it for his story.

(I agree it all comes down to sloppiness, though. Everyone's too lazy to just debug the damn thing.)

It's not that they couldn't. RATH controls the time ratio. They just neglected to even bother to check how the fluctlights were doing.

Them not locking up the menu had nothing to do with the rpg point I mentioned. That was just stupid. It wasn't a bug. It was a loose end they forgot to tie. A very human error and very realistic but stupid all the same. I added more to my post.

That's been a thing for a year and a half at this point. It's Nero in a swimsuit with Kancolle cannons.

I'm wondering if Rath and co. really are interested in the solution that they are claiming to want given their entire approach to this data project to begin with, as I'd have treated an in-system admin takeover like a viral infection and have it quarantined in a virtual machine for study then elimination, because that's basically what this would be.
