For the most part this game has ran fine, but ever since the 10 hour maintenance last week this game has been crazy sluggish. Lag is everywhere for me, cities, behest, even crafting by my self in the middle of no where! Before that maintenance the game flowed nice, huge man behest gangs ran smooth like water, now it just hurts my brain... Just kicking this out there to see if others were having the same problem. Thanks kats!

NPCs haven't been loading correctly for myself either, and market wards for me has become nearly unusable since retainers aren't loading at all except for the rare occasion, and even then they are names on the ground for me :/

It's possible they put the game onto cheaper servers?

The game is basically being run for free atm, you get what you pay for.

So while SE is making no money, they are going to spend more money to buy cheaper servers when they are trying to save the game.

**** some people need some common sense.

Also SE has long term plans for this game so dont even start with the "they will rent the servers" crap, because they will own thier own servers for it.

You realise they already have many servers of varying quality around right? This is not the only online game they run/have run. It's not hard to transfer the entire game onto cheaper, lower quality servers until the game goes p2p. It's free you expect top class really expensive servers to be used in that situation?

If you own one high end server and one low end server. Meaning they are paid for and sitting in your workplace. How does one server operate cheaper than the other? Draws 3 less Kw/h a week in electricity? Seems rather insignificant. Not to mention you'd have to dedicate a team to switching over the data and making sure it goes smoothly for a month prior with preliminary testing. Not to mention they are improving the game, meaning they want more people to play/return. So then if they did "downgrade" server they'd just have to reassign the same team again, test out for a month again. Have more downtime. Really now?

This isn't entirely true. If the servers are what I'm thinking they are, they're just executables that call a separate database server that most likely runs different databases on its own. In that case you'd simply install the server on a different machine, copy over the config, and point it at the correct database. On a powerful enough machine this can even be set up in an array of virtual machines with several game servers running on the same hardware, all pointed to their respective databases ( or even possibly the same database).

**** it might be running on an old Pentium II Compaq as far as we know.

Why would they take all the time to clone the servers to cheaper servers when they want people to be getting more players and buying the game?

Really, common sense there.
