17K Space Rats and Going Strong...
EVE Online reached another peak concurrency record over the Thanksgiving weekend. While 17,000 online at once doesn't seem like much in light of WoWs millions, it's significant to see a smaller, older, truly unique game growing by leaps and bounds in its own way.
At 19:45 on Sunday evening (2005.10.23) EVE players broke their own Peak Concurrent Player (PCU) record with 17.032 playing at the same time.
This is only days after a highly successful installation of TMS RAMSAN 400 Solid State Disk Array virtually eliminating all Database related LAG in EVE Online.
Congratulations to all involved in making history once again.
