Member-Only PTR Lag-Fix Server Opens Monday!
This week we pushed Yorumi to his coding limits... until he broke through a binary brickwall and punched Programming in its semi-colon! We began introducing lag fixes onto ALL servers with tonight's release, but there is much more left to do. So...
First: We disabled the tradeskills for the weekend. You will not be able to train Alchemy or Fishing on any server until we re-enable them. This allows us to see if tradeskills - which required some significant modifications to the game's engine - caused any of the lag increase. Second...
Members: We need your help! On Monday we will open a Lag-Fix PTR server so that we can push Yorumi's test-fixes to the limit. The server will be full of PTR perils - going up and down randomly, things breaking, things working... who knows?! YOU will, if you can come help us test!
Those who help with the lag-fix testing will receive: an all-new PTR badge (the first one is not returning, this badge will be brand-new) and shiny item-goodies! (What item would YOU like to see as a reward?)
Have a great night, everyone!
