Probably will not be an issue. Strongholds should, if implemented correctly, be only two or three times as much load on the server as player starships - they will be instanced like starships but are more customizable, so there will be more data to retrieve to set the instance up. We haven't seen people going to their starships being much of a problem. Like with starships, there is not much interaction between Strongholds.

Groupfinder, on the other hand, is sort of the opposite of an instance - everyone queued for GF is has to be checked and potentially paired with everyone else in GF to form a group, and larger groups take a lot more checking and pairing. At one level, 16m GF it is like trying to find 16 kids in a class who all get along - it is a lot harder to do that than find 4 who do. And that's just part of the problem.
