As astonishing as it sounds for a ten year old game, its unacceptable with current day server cluster technollogy we know from other games...... Blizzard do need to upgrade their server engine so it can add extra resources to servers with a heavy load...

Why

Why should they spend 100's of thousands of dollars for a bunch of hardware to accomodate a temporary load issue. They KNOW that there are going to be a significant percentage of people who are going to play heavily the first week or two and then cut back big time and that load will go away. If they buy a bunch of hardware they end up with a bunch of wasted capital in 2 or 3 weeks.

they dont need to spend any money on new hardware.... they just need to make their clusters work in a way that they borrow resources from underplayed servers when things get to busy....  and since i am pretty sure everything runs under ESXi, it just means moving virtual machines in the cluster..  It can be done with some good programming and maybe a few spare servers to catch the truely heavy loads..

Wrong... so much wrong. Your misunderstanding of the buzz word clusters aside, this isn't loading a facebook page. You can't just "shift more resources" from other servers. Adding more virtual machines to the "cluster"? Why would this help, are they opening more servers?

Don't get me wrong I agree that Blizz should look into getting more people into their servers. Makes them feel more active and alive. 

But technically.... so so wrong. Sorry I do this for a living and it bugs me when people pick up buzz words like cloud and clusters and think that adding more power means sliding a bar from low bandwidth to high bandwidth. 

Just read up on esxi technollogy, that allows you to copy a virtuall machine from one hardware server to another realtime withouth any loss of service.....  And a WoW server cluster consists of several virtual machines each with their own function.. You can have 2 clusters running on a single server... Or you can have a cluster running on 3 servers... Either way, you can realtime shift virtuall servers from one hardware server to another...   

 

You are not adding virtuall machines to the cluster, but more hardware servers, or just part of that (resources)  and yes, i agree, i put it down a little awkward...  Point is the technollogy allows for huge flexibillity and Blizzard should make use of it

 

There is just one problem, each server has a function, it can be a login server, a loot server, a character server or a zone/instance server etc. You can easily add another instance server for example, so more people can start dungeons. BUT, it is not so easy to split a zone server (the barrens server for example) because then servers start doing "half functions" like half a zone which can make things very complicated if it wasn't designed like that 15 years ago.

So yeah, a lot of thing are easy scalable but this might require almost a complete redesign of the engine if it was never intended for splitting up zones, hence that is why all zones are about the same size and Essedarius is right.

TLDR; adding hardware only works if you can run stuff parallel

What's the point of playing a sandbox PVP game if you can never win?


 

As it was said numerous times before: AA is not a sandbox, it is a poorly designed themepark.

Seems like some people still do not get this :/


Guild caps are no issue there, it is just a name tag. 1000 people in 1 guild or split in 5 makes no difference.

Also, the game can be won, Oran'thu clearly won ArcheAge :D

 Yes.... AA is NOT a Sandbox MMO. I wish more people would understand this. I wish Trion and XL Games would stop promoting it as the "Ultimate Sandbox" because it has little to no elements that makes it a true Sandbox experience and what elements they put into the game is limited as to how the player wishes to progress in a Sandbox element.

As far as the guild issue..... you either buck up and bear it, join them, or move on. XL Games has not changed this design since their launch in KR and RU so I highly doubt you will see it change for the NA/EU servers.

Yeah, cause a "real" sandbox doesn't have zerg guilds..... pffft

You are connecting things that have nothing do with each other

It's not gonna work, big guilds will just split themselves in smaller once, call it guild1, guild2, guild3 etc and make an alliance.

result is the same, they communicate through teamspeak, splitting up makes no difference for them.

WoW's  as bad in vanilla, Neverwinter the same,Lineage 2 was pretty bad, EQ 1 threw you out into the world with no clues what to do, SWG had a tutorial then go hf,etc,etc,etc. Not saying it is the right way but nor should a vestal virgin come to you upon login to guide you and offer pleasures to make you cream your pants.

Nobody asked for that. I just want to have fun while playing a game. I don't want to play a game to have fun at a later time. Makes no sense.

It makes sense for the people who actually need a tutorial

Everytime I see this game, I wanna play it but then I remember that it doesn't have a hardcore mode, boring....


Once you tried hardcore in ARPG, you can't go back, it's not the same anymore, no challenge, just clicking, it's like playing poker for chips instead of real money, it is not the same.

I keep seeing people saying EA.

 

What MMO's has EA themselves ever created? 

 

It has nothing to do with actual legit reasons,  it's all about the "cool thing to do" right now is hate on the big bad evil companies...well EA is one of those companies according to them so the sheep follow the other sheep cause it's "cool".

 

Bullfrog, Westwood, Origin, Maxis, Bioware, DICE, all gone, I'm probably forgetting a few.... Calling everyone sheep makes you what? cool?

Hmm Dice still involved with BF4 so not gone..getting info from a sheep are you?

Bioware still involved with ME, DA, Swtoe so not gone...getting your info from a sheep are you?

So lying on a post makes you what?  Cool?

 

 

 

Lol, I knew you were gonna say that, whatever dude, like DICE and Bioware are doing great, BF4 is one big bug fest and when was the last time Bioware made a good game like they used too? It is hard to destroy a studio in a few months, give it 2 more years. Anyway, ignorance is bliss, keep blissing, more power to you :)

 

/edit

Ow, you also missed one, Maxis is still around, remember simcity online? LOL

I hope you don't miss the sarcasm this time like you missed the irony last time

/edit2

I forgot the most important part, I'm already cool, no need to lie :D

 

Ignorant is bliss? A few months? No need to lie? Well this is the second lie I caught you in so stay cool I guess.

 

A few months?  They acquired Dice in 2006!!  They acquired BW in 2007!!  A few months hmm.  

So who is being ignorant and lying here??  Sure isn't me.  

Yep, just keep ignoring the other studio's that are also gone....

Has the quality of games from Dice and BW gone up or gone down since they are acquired?

thought so.

Keeping a brand name, doesn't mean the studio is still there, ow btw Mythic anyone?

Keep nitpicking my post and ignore my main point, that is how you do it.

He seems to think that because he sees dice and bioware that it means that the same company that made the games prior to EA are the same ones who made them after.  

Wonder why all the guys that created bioware left soon after EA acquired them.  

BF after EA has been horrible, how is it that the games get worse instead of better after EA gets the studio?  

Or maybe this guy didn't hear about the EA exec that pitched the idea of selling ammo in BF?   Not even as a what if, but a serious belief that that was the future of monetizing games.  

Yah, not liking EA is just about being cool and has nothing to do with them being a genuinely shitty company.  

 

BTW, my simcity game still doesn't frigging work properly, let alone do what it was advertised to when I purchased it, what, nearly 2 years ago?  

 

Geez I wish I was part of a genuine shitty company that pulled in over $1 Billion in revenue last year...that's billion with a B! A few here are a little butthurt towards EA but it's obvious a lot still like and play their games.  

Coke makes billions, doesn't mean they haven't literally taken all of the clean drinking water in several towns in Africa, used it all to make coke products and leaving none for the people to drink, and then shut down the factory that was the only source of income for most of those people, who now have to buy coke products as its the only thing that's safe to drink.  

 

Or maybe the billion dollar water companies that go into South American countries, buy all the water rights, and then prevent people from drinking that water unless they pay for it, been though they can't afford it.  Or maybe the water company that was responsible for a revolt in one country after they paid the government to outlaw the collection of rain water.  

Oh, did you know those same companies are doing that very same thing here in the US?  Indeed, they recently passed a law that makes it illegal to collect rain water in some parts of MD.  

Or how about Pepsi who wanted to buy the rights to the water in one of the Great Lakes, that was already publicly owned, so they could use it to make Pepsi products.  So much so that they started stealing the water and the community in the area had to go through a legal battle to get Pepsi out of the area.  Pepsi is another company that will use all the water in an area to the point that they are willing to drain entire lakes.  

Wtf does being a shitty company have to do with profits?  Generally speaking the shittiest companies in the world are the most profitable.  They get that way by being shitty companies, run by shitty people, who don't give a shit about the people they sell their products to.  

 

But hey, coke makes a lot of profit so who cares that they supported paramilitaries in foreign countries because they killed union officials, which helped to keep cokes operating costs down.  You don't have to believe me, the court records are public.  

Most people live in a bubble where they don't care what a company does as long as its not negatively impacting them.  Eventually your bubble will run out of air.  

 

PS I could also tell you about G. W. Bush exempting natural gas drilling from the EPA clean water act because Halliburton was the only company that produced all the stuff needed for fracking, the same stuff that caused the drinking water in many areas to become toxic after it was contaminated with chemicals and methane.  I guess I shouldn't care they're about to do the same shit to my water because they're billion dollar companies, one of which my former Vice President used to be the CEO of.  

 

Holy MSNBC Batman!!! You good after that little rant?  Btw I never mention profits I said revenue there is a difference.  From my knowledge EA is not taking clean water away from your little beloved African countries.  I mentioned revenue to point out a lot of people don't feel it's a horrible company and still support their games.  

 

Now you want to politics go back to msnbc this is not that site for your propaganda.  

Dude, I agree that his wall of text might be a little bit off-topic but you are really good in missing the point.

His point is that a billion dollar revenue/profit/whatever company not automatically means that it is a good company.  Maybe a cigarette company would have been a better example.

Anyway, stop missing/dodging the point, makes for a better conversation.

OP you are wrong bro.

I have been reading several posts about being hacked.  I also read several posts on the second day about reaching level 50.

 

You probly didnt noticed these stupid posts because you are in game playing and not lurking these dumb forums like me because I am stuck at work.

Someone getting hacked is most of the time their own fault, nothing the company can do about it.

These people go to dubious sites (gold sellers, add-ons, fan pages etc) where they get infected by a keylogger and BAM!, you got another "hacked" account, nothing the company can do about it.

People like to blame everyone except themselves with some ludicrous argument like, it can't be my fault because I have a virus scanner installed, ignore those people.

I read the  official forums also and their were several posts about the game logging players into other players accounts.  As far as I know it's been fixed but it was because of bugs in the game that allowed this.

Yeah, I think the zenimax systems did that because of a bug, it had nothing to do with hacking, people just got randomly into someone else's bank.

I like the game too. Slower than the other 3 big MOBAs, but  it's a great game. I just find weird that you talk bad about itemization, and talk well about talents: It's almost the same thing, in a different pack. You had builds (with items) in dota, lol and hon, now you have builds (from talents) here. Kinda weird to hype something here, and talk ill about something so close in other games. A bias, maybe?

The difference is that you now only need to know the talents of your hero instead of all items in the game.

Well then those explanations are BAD, because the same 20 questions arise every 10 seconds in chat.

If you play WOW, everything is self explanatory, because it is either simple (not easy, if you can see the difference), and self explanatory. ESO is cryptic, often making things different for the sake of, and needs *better* explanations. I regard myself a relatively dedicated gamer, experienced in dozens of MMOs, and if I didn't find it in a natural way that means, the explanation stuff was done bad.

Just look at the chat ingame. It shows quite vividly something is amiss in the state of Denmark.. err Tamriel.

 

In part I blame the HORRIBLE console UI. That nefarious "wheel" thing is bad enough. The locked mouse as well. So many cumbersome things. Some many times just making it different "because".

 

Ask yourself, honestly: do you think the average gamer, MMO or otherwise, is a very patient person? With a long attention span? Many MMO gamers try things out once or twice, and then leave it. That may be sad, but it remains true. I used to write user manuals as a job, and the rule of thumb was: write it is clear, that even an idiot would understand it. That is how good explanations work. They come to you. You don't have to seek them. Let the GAME be demanding, not the rulebook!

Those "20 question in chat" as you call them makes me really wonder why people don't really pay attention to what they are playing.

Though I partially agree on your last part but I also feel I will be beter off when that unpatient player leave this genre.

 

1 Million people play a game

20 people ask the same question

It surely must be the game, not the people...

Tip: start with quests you both haven't done yet.

Problem solved.

Don't try doing quests when you are at different stages, why do you think this would work? It doesn't make any sense.

You want impact on the world and at the same time, you wanna see it when another player starts the quest you just did.

There is no correct way....

It's because people only know wow.

Everything that is different from wow, they don't understand, think it is bugged/broken or it is a fail.

People didn't understand wow at first either but they learned.

If only people accepted, that they have to learn when something is new, things would be a lot simpler.

Isn't it more realistic when some mobs move and others don't?

Why do you want every mob to move back and forth?

I guess guards need to stand still, a wolf or a boar is different.

Yea and thats fine, but if you look at the video I posted, its actual mobs in an area where its not guards, you will see that some are just standing there facing each other or facing away from each other and about 200 meters or so you will see one mob standing rinse and repeat.

Meh, your video is 2,5 hours long, can't be bothered, sorry.

I haven't seen any real roaming mobs in any game except for Ryzom.

Instance boss camping has been in since last summer (when I joined beta).  They haven't changed anything to discourage it...

Did they change any other things to the instancing/phasing system  based on player input....   Or  where there just not enough people testing to see the negatives of the system...    Solo stories having their immersion ruined... And groups just not working, either they end up in the wrong instance, or they all need to perform the actions required by the tests singlehandedly..

 

my biggest worry is that there where not enough testers around to detect the negatives of the system on overcrowded servers?

 

are thre any changes towards the system on the internal test servers?  Or are they planned?  Is it even discussed among the developers

Ofc it has been discussed, you can't program a mmo with only retards, you think you are the only one who thinks about stuff like this?

Also, I had 0 problems with phasing when I started quests with friends.

You might get into trouble if you are way ahead in the quest but that is like in every other mmo, you can't complete stage 2 if you haven't completed stage 1, otherwise you can just about skip every quest until last stage...

There was allways a group of people camping the bosses in the lower level open world instances...

 

I joined one of these groups and found out why..

I got green and blue drops every minute or so

I got a pile of gear, which cam in handy while crafting

It was the only way to keep your crafting skill on par with your level

Just demolishing the gear you found for the materials..

 

 

I think its another of those things that shows there needs to be done a lot of work to their instancing and phasing parts of the solo leveling content

Just because you don't know any other way, doesn't mean there isn't another way.

I had plenty crafting materials without camping...
