Now on to other news. We’ve had a really productive week: firstly, we are happy to announce that we have transferred all the game worlds including the Newbie Islands to the *nix based server OS. As we mentioned before, this OS should improve server-side calculations and overall network performance. We have already received a bunch of brilliant feedback from you, and we’re continuing to monitor how the game performs on the new operation system.
Which brings us to the next highlight of the week. In order to test how servers would take a massive battle on the new OS, our team has decided to have another stress test this week.
We would like to thank all those who showed up and participated in the event. And we would also like to apologize for some organizational flaws, we have taken all the feedback into consideration, so hopefully we will not disappoint you next time. We are happy to tell you that the test turned out to be really successful. Our development team was monitoring it all closely, and we have gathered all the vital information that will be a great help in applying upcoming optimizations, so thank you all once again for taking part in this.
During the first event when 130 people showed up and the ping was 500+, and it was therefore, really laggy overall. During the second event (the one that happened after we moved Avalon to nix OS) we’ve had even more participants than the planned 230 of you who showed up! The ping was 150, which indicated that the server was handling it okay. However, we are aware you’ve been experiencing lag which turned out to be network lag - and now we are looking into it so that we can implement optimizations that would address this, and allow 200 player PvP to be played smoothly.
And last but not least - this week we’ve also released a weekly patch in which we’ve finally located and fixed the problem that has been causing some of our players to get stuck and slide infinitely on the top floors of the Keep, and also some other small fixes and tweaks. You can check the full patch notes here.
Have a great weekend!
