BWE3 server list changes

Zeus.CMZeus.CM Member, Newbie CommonPosts: 1,788

New blog post about BWE3 server changes and WvW matchmaking.

The number of servers has been reduced and server player cap increased.

At launch WvW matches will last for 24 hours, to get some data that will help avoid having two-week-long extreme mismatches, after that WvW goes back to two-weeks format.

Edit: EU servers are reduced from 48 to 24. US server from 48 to 18.

    They really must have improved their servers. there are 42 servers. And during BWE2 there were like 50 high/full at least. I guewss 2 new races helped a lot.

    Edit. they removed Petrified forest omg..

    Ty for the new updated list, my server Sorrow's Furnace is still there yay.

    Nice of Arenanet to also dedicate the server Sanctum of Rall to a deceased member of Gaiscioch gaming community, his name was Roger "Oldroar" Rall.

    I saw this coming. It's not dying, hasn't launched yet. It's because server player cap has been doubled.

    Yeah server merges BEFORE release. A new and improved definition of fail.

    LOL

    Honestly that crossed my mind. And I promptly rushed here to see the reaction. 

     

    ADDED: The reason why they reduce the amount of server has more to do with preparing for launch. They want to see if their system can work as they claim it can in a real scenario.

    It was a joke yes, a little jab at all the doom calling around here.

    wow oh wow!
    ANET was able to increase server capacity BEFORE launch! more players per server!

    and the best part:
    Our server tech is now able to raise or lower population caps with some very simple changes that don’t require us to take the game down. This lets us adjust world populations based on how the servers react and you won’t even have to leave the game!

    there were a lot of queues for WvW even with 90+ servers I hope they increased caps for WvW. Besides that with 2 more starting zones there can already be almost 2 times more players on a server than before.

    Piken Square seems to be the new "unofficial" RP server(EU). At least for BWE3.

    Well our guild's old server got axed, and we have to scramble to figure out which server to be on.  Problem is, I seem to be the only one awake right now...

    Indeed. It was awfully kind of them to do so.

    "OMG Server merge already. It's dead before launch"

    "You don't know what you're talking about"

    "Just look"

    "They said they increased capacity"

    "By how much?"

    "i don't know. Alot"

    "How much coud the servers handle before?"

    "Alot. I saw tons of people in the starting area"

    "LOL. Like all mmos. Fail game is fail"

    "STFU. They'll sell millions stills"

    "No, they won't"

    "Yes, they will"

    Mad respect for Arena Net for this.

    Interesting. I am not sure I am going to be looking forward to the massive zerg fest come this weekend. We will see how it goes though ;)

  • VolkonVolkon Member UncommonPosts: 3,748

    There must be some nice optimization in place as well to handle all the people on screen. This should be interesting, in a good way.

  • AvanahAvanah Member RarePosts: 1,596

    They are forcing more people on minimal servers to test how they handle the people with their optimizations and changes.

    They still have the other servers in standby in case they are needed. It will give them an idea of the load per server and adjust it after BWE3 before release once they crunch the numbers.
