Darrowshire - Progressive Vanilla Experience Made Right

Copied from their discord announcement

Hello, Gamers.

I know everyone has been patiently waiting for further informations regarding our project called Darrowshire.com
After days and nights of discussing certain subjects of the progressive realm we finally have decided what we think is the best possible experience regarding a high quality vanilla private server.
Before we go into detail, i want to thank everyone for joining our discord. We all are very excited where this road takes us all - the journey may now begin.

Lets get straight into the facts:

- Who is behind this project?

Darrowshire is developed and maintained by a group of people that have been part of "Arena-Tournament". Few of you will remember this Server. It was a pure 3.3.5a Wotlk Arena server, that now is known as warmane.com.
We have been part of it in the early days of Arena-Tournament before we split due to the fact the others wanted to go a different path. They wanted to sell items for Real Money, we didn't. Simple.

- Lets talk about money, how is the project financed?

Due to the fact, that we are grown men paying taxes we are able to cover the costs of the server, website and advertisment without help. The costs are split even.

- Uhm... okay but what if one is not able to pay up?

Even IF there would be situation where a staff member isn't able to pay his share for the ongoing quarter we have a "safe-pot" where everyone pays a certain amount of extra €€ so it is guaranteed that the service can be sustained.

- Will they ever join this discord?

The other staff members will join this public discord after the name-reservation took place.

- Will there be a stresstest?

Yes, definitely. The stresstest will have 3 phases:

Phase 1:
Let everyone join. See how the dedicated server and the servercore performs.
Many restarts, and performance adjustments. Find a sweet spot.

Phase 2:
Test again with the "sweet spot" settings. If its good, fine. If not, adjust again. Restart.

Phase 3:
Last testing with players online and bombarding the database with stresstest querys.

If the performance is satisfying we will call it a day and go into the next phase: Name reservation.

1 Week before launch date the server will be opened for you all to register with your desired character name. You will not be able to join the world yet.

"Stresstest when"

Keep lurking into the discord from time to time. If the time is right we will announce the official date and time for the stresstest.
