Ugh. Power flash and now riding the 1017 train. I am VERY much looking forward to the "increase" in server capacity.
I'm pretty sure they couldnt get around the 5000 player hard cap. Their increase in server capacity would pretty much be opening more servers...
You're likely correct, but I don't believe they are at that cap. The pronouncement of login restrictions makes no sense if they are truly bumping up against the 5000 limit. Then they aren't truly limiting login, just out of space. I think the more likely culprit is the stability of the platforms being used. Clearly either they didn't expect this many simultaneous users per world or that the hardware would react as it did when hit with that kind of load.
Either way, looking forward to not waking up in the morning just to log in and afk. Edited, Aug 31st 2013 6:26pm by Umboz
