We are a little over a week away from the next round of testing. Yes, it’s going to be Apocalypse again, for stress testing. (listens to the groans in the room)
I know this isn’t what we want to be testing but it really does help make the final AoC product much better. Think of some of those other MMOs you’ve played that crawled like a turtle when tons of players finally got into them and filled up the same area. We shouldn’t ever have that problem with the depth of work that they’re putting into making their infrastructure handle tons of players in a close area. knock on wood
Hopefully very soon we will get to finally start some testing of the MMO pieces themselves, but meanwhile, please join in on the Apocalypse test if you can. The more we overload it, the less likely we’ll have lag issues later on in the real thing!
