ArcheAge - XLGames tells the purposes of CBT5

volcha87volcha87 LondonPosts: 31Member

As many guessed this CBT5 is all about stress testing of servers and client.

First thing that they are testing is optimisation of servers and client as well as start and middle content. On the first day (not the first day when Korean players from internet cafes were allowed to the test but second day when everyone were allowed) firt server crashed with 50,000 players online. Server was successfully up in short time.

XLGames wasn't embarrassed and told us that after server crash they spend 5-6 hours to fix the server. On the second day everything went much faster.

Also was made optimisation of 64-bit client and all players now can see improvement in fps and work is not finished yet. They wont forget 32-bit client as well...

Full article is here.

Information that this test is to improve work of the servers and client before release of the game was proved in interview with J. Song. Also he answered some questions about content (maybe later there will be translation of this Interview).

    I think they meant when the first server crashed a whole of 50.000 player where online in total spread over all 3 server.

    Which is still impressive and surpassing almost all MMORPGs with ease, but lets just avoid planting overoptimistcal missinformation/myths. It would also be in line with their own previous statements about each servers capacity ranging from 10-20k.

    the first day all 50,000 where on one server, only later did they add the other servers. They packed as many in as they could until things broke.

    50 000 people on one server is actually pretty impressive

    I hope that is true. Would be amazing and a major feat of its own.

    Even the most advanced games are currently still stuck between 7.5k -10k right now.  Most "MMORPG player" here in the West are even used to lower 3.5k-4-5k upper limits with WoW. (Leave alone server which dont reach the cap)

     

    50k would be like you have your whole realm pool on one single server, permanently, no neccessity for cross-server this and that. 50k is like a half a real city of people playing on your server. This is ***** amazing.
