Server Caps - PVP Old Server

by Alexpulos » Mon Nov 14, 2016 2:02 pm

Hello,

Could anyone answer me a question about server caps on the upcoming release. They are talking about server caps at around 5k. I haven't seen anyone bring to light that the old server we all played on was well over that. Does this mean they are going to be queing it now? Not sure if anyone could provide a link. I tried to make an account to get on the forum's over there but i kept getting an error. Thanks!

I don't think any cap is official yet but I'd hope for 7k, which is already 2x the retail standard. After this point, the game begins to suffer regardless of the hardware because the game world simply can't fit the players. Nost ran with 4x the original size stuffed into a single server, so it was a disaster. They refused to ever cap it because they wanted to brag and jerk it to however high they could get the population numbers, nevermind the fact that the server and its players suffered for it. More is not better past a certain point. Even if you can run a stable server, the game world just isn't big enough to house the players. We should have had 2 servers with this population divided, rather than 1 overstuffed server. All you need is cross realm BGs.

When Elysium comes, maybe they can do this properly, set a cap, then just open up transfers to a new realm for players who already own a 60 on it.

I'm sure they will adjust whatever the initial cap is if it becomes a problem

The cap has not been decided yet. Much depends on how the two stress tests go.
