In a series of posts we’ll do “Firebase From Scratch”, an introduction to Firebase and its concepts and ideas. Hopefully, reading this series will give you a firm grasp of what Firebase is and what it can do.

Now let's talk a bit more about handling actions in a server game. Why is the actions binary data as opposed to objects? Who do you do scheduling? Can you send actions internally between games, tournaments, services etc? Read on for some answers. The Table Instance When an action comes in to either of the "handle data action" or "handle object action", you are given two objects, the action itself and a table. It is important to re-iterate at this point that your server Game is a collection of objects that collaborate: the game instance and it's processors, the activator and all currently existing tables.

You should never keep references to table instances in your game or activator.

The above rule is because Firebase is build to transparently scale across multiple servers: Firebase needs to be able to "move tables" between different servers and will do so to make sure there's no data loss even if servers are crashing.
