I get the impression you're reading too much into this compared to what I was thinking. I just mean that most people involved, current guests and regular cast members, don't have this as their main job - their primary income is not rollplay. They have schedules to maintain for that main job, and sure, someone like Dodger might have more flexibility than Wheat or Morgan with their non-streamer jobs - but she still has fixed commitments (eg if NJ get cancelled one Saturday, you can't reschedule to a Tuesday because of Cooptional/mangapod) because her other content is important for her too.
Stack that up over 5 people (+JP when he doesn't play) and even if everyone can do 6 days in a given week, it's entirely possible that the original time slot was the only place that worked, so an illness scuppers the whole week.
@boostgeek Sure, there are literally things he could have done, but obviously it was assumed that Aurey's PC could handle it - I assume she isn't streaming from a potato so I doubt that was the worst assumption in the world. Hell, he could have shipped his PC with him and there is still no guarantee he doesn't blue screen anyway. I like the idea of replacement patreon stuff tbf.
