Went to create a second character to play on a different server. Every single NA server is disallowed form creating a character. Am I missing something?

It's been like that for the past few days due to server congestion. SE has been releasing continuous updates (14 last I checked) on which servers are blocked from new character creation. Once a server is no longer maxing out their 5000 concurrent login limit, they will take it off the list and open it up to new characters. This probably won't happen until next week at the earliest when they add new servers.

Actually you can create a character in the late night/early morning when people haven't started their login for AFKing yet. Since that's when the server population is presumably no longer at 5000 since that's about the only time I can actually log into the game. So if you get on early you can make a character but it's kind of pointless if you can't actually play said character.

I think they said they're working on adding additional servers.

It works, just not how it's intended to.

Example: If you try to create a character on Ultros and there isn't room, it will create that character on whatever server has open space for it and you get placed there instead.

I was up at 3 am (pacific) andI made two characters on Ultros. I tried to make a third this morning at 8 am and all worlds were locked out except for Goblin.

I think it has to do with what kind of traffic the server is getting at the time. I know that during peak time for any particular region is probably going to be an No Go until server capacity is adjusted... how ever that gets done. I'm not that tech savvy. ^_^;

Word on the street is a few more NA worlds will be spun up early next week. Prepping the servers probably takes a while since there're clustered components like the zone processing and instance servers. Plus installing, configuring, and testing the world servers themselves, etc.

These problems smack of either (a) major architectural design flaws or (b) incompetent staff.



I strongly disagree. While it's relatively simple to do with well-known and well-supported platforms like a LAMP stack, doing so with custom software is non-trivial on a good day.
