Second Test Server Added

Second Test Server Added -

The CCP dev team has posted a new blog about a second test server being added for EVE Online players. In addition to the Singularity server, players can now help test new features, patches, etc. on "Duality". Devs indicate that the new server will allow different dev teams to test different features on each of the two servers. It fits, according to CCP Hypnotic, the new release paradigm.

The product of an internal QA naming contest, Duality, already being nicknamed "Ducie," will be our brand new public facing Event Server. This is in contrast to Singularity, which is a Public Server. The difference is that where Singularity is up and running and open to players almost 24/7, Duality will only be opened for special CCP run events. You're already familiar with these events because we've been running them on Singularity up until now. Things like the weekly mass tests, or guided play tests will, in the future, happen on Duality with much better coordination and preparation than what was capable on Singularity in the past. These events are vitally important to the quality of EVE Online. Placing new code on Singularity and just letting you guys and gals play around with it is good and valuable testing for sure. But a focused test with a decisive plan, on the spot expert guidance and targeted feedback goals is worth a nerd's weight in gold pressed latinum.
