    Servers just went boom again (20;43 gmt)

    hope they improve the server load capability/stability for when it leaves open beta.. although the distinction between 'open beta' and official launch are a bit 'blurred' these days. image

      Ever since open beta they have had problems with the servers or authenticator erroring out. On weekends it holds for about 1-2 hours then crash boom!

    That's the beauty of F2P games, lol

     

    You launch (Cash Shop 100% open for business) but call it "open beta". So your game can crash as often as it likes, nobody can complain that "we're PAYING for this crap" because the game is F2P image

    And besides, it's still in beta...

    Hahaha... yeah, the servers def need an overhaul or something.    The game is most likely doing far better than they expected.   

     

    I know I'm having a blast.   

     

    Esp. considering this is beta.   and it's free.  AND it's soft launch, so no wipes.  No complaints here.   As a matter of fact, I'm thinking of spending more in the cash shop if for no other reason than to expedite the upgraded server capacity ;-)

     

    This game is fun.  deal with it.

    Just because you call a duck a goose doesn't make it so. This is not beta.... they are taking peoples money in cash shop and everything is active... this is soft launch... Now the way the game is playing makes it feel like closed beta.

    Cookies FTW! 

    The official forums are down too. When something at PWI crashes, it would seem EVERYTHING crashes. 

    PWI really need to invest in some new server architecture. They have been using the same architecture on all of their games for years, and its just out of date. Every time they launch a new game, the same problems. Then eventually they go away because people leave and they dont bother fixing/upgrading it.

    PWI most probably find the current setup to be cost-effective. Developing and testing new software and infrastructure can be a costly business. If they're making heaps of money with the current state of affairs, why spend money changing it ?

    You really have no idea how PWE works, do you?

    Do you? i think only those who work at PWE knows how it really works.

    I might not know how PWE works as much as a PWE employee, but at least I know enough about how PWE works to not go making the most rediculous, unrealistic claims about them.  I mean, seriously, that claim is about as realistic as claiming that a logging company spills toxic waste into a river (ala Captain Planet villains) for the sake of spilling toxic waste into a river.

    Little whisper in your emotional ear - the OP was joking.

    What claim, exactly?  That they sell pretty mounts in their cash shops..?

    Server went BOOM for me during an instance where I was fighting and about to kill the main boss.  Seems like I will have to restart it.  Hopefully they will get this resolved.

    Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?

    You can't expect a company like cryptic to have stable servers like other companies who make triple a mmos.

    Got the standard emergency maintenance message on twitter - downtime eta 1hr.

    That's their usual starting post. The time generally  gets extended as they find out which one of their commodore 64's has gone up in smoke.

    No, he pretty much nailed it.  Evidently, you don't knowhow PWE works.  Now don't get your PWE nickers all bunched, we are just having a laugh.

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.
