Servers

Postby Frogmuscle » Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:32 pm

Hello Devs.
First off thanks for all your hard work. This looks awesome!!
I'm not sure if this question has been asked, If so my apologies. This maybe to early to ask. But have you decided on how many servers you're planning on having in N.A.?
Thank you

welcome Frog glad you found us.

We will have a Shard system. One server with more shards as people log in and they fill up currently we are looking at 100 people per shard. mind you this is not set in stone and things may change as we get more data and get closer to launch.

my layman's explanation. back in the day Atlas Park would fill up and you would have Atlas Park 2. that's a good example of a shard system. basically a shard system allows the server to fill then a second server will split off as more people log in. so you can have multiple shards on the same server.

Shard Systems are a proven, working solution to server crowding. 👍🏽🖥🛎x💯

The official server type is Megaserver. There are a lot of games that use this, Including Star Trek Online. STO was the first, AFAIK, English MMORPG game that used this server structure. So, thank you Cryptic Studios for that. This has the distinct advantage of ensuring that you and your friends don't end up on the wrong server! Also, the player pool is at its maximum, meaning that it should be no problem getting a raid or invasion event team together, The only disadvantage is naming, since all players in the game are using the same pool of names. This is why I am such a proponent for global names, as this solves this problem.

Thanks so much folks for the reply.
The closer to game launch the more I reflect on COH. Go figure.

On the topic of servers, will these be based only in NA for the current plans or will there be EU instances at launch too?
