WAR Tests Change to Ensure RvR Stability

Posted Wed, Apr 29, 2009 by Savanja

Want a chance to help improve server stability during RvR gameplay in Warhammer Online? Here is your golden opportunity! Mythic Entertainment is working hard to better the experience for players in game and part of this is the latest server update on the Dark Crag open RvR server.

In our efforts to improve server stability and performance in Open Realm vs. Realm combat, the players of Dark Crag will have the opportunity to participate in a live test of a new system called "Winds of Change."

The goal of this system is to ensure the best Open Realm vs. Realm experience for as many people as possible and to prevent server crashes. Overall, this system will only take effect in the most extreme server load situations, and will only happen as a last measure before the zone would actually crash.

In order to accomplish this goal "The Winds of Change" will now teleport a small number of players in Realm vs. Realm lakes to the closest "safe point" when crowds are large enough to threaten the stability of the server. This will generally be the nearest Warcamp, however, it may also be a Chapter Hub within the zone depending on where performance is being impacted the most.
