WildStar: Focus on Stress Testing

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 23,008MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

The latest WildStar Wednesday has been posted with a terrific look at what a beta stress test weekend looks like and embodies for those who take part. Comparing stress testing to race car driving and...clown cars...the team gives readers an inside look at all that happens before the test begins.

One of the main responsibilities I have – I am getting to the point, hang with me a little bit longer – is making sure that you guys have the best experience possible playing the game when we open the doors. This means many things; from making sure that I don’t allow risky changes to be promoted, to making sure our QA team has caught as many bugs as possible, to waking up engineers in the middle of the night to get debug information as to why our worlds are lagging, to making sure we have the right amount of hardware to support the number of players we have in our game.

    I doubt a stress test would make your weekend.  More likely ruin it, considering a first time public stress test for most games results in it being unplayable for a large portion of the test.

    You see, every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with their surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You spread to an area, and you multiply, and you multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet.-Mr.Smith
