This past week, Elyon transitioned into their full release from their initial headstart that began on the 17th. As is common with most MMORPG launches, Elyon has not gone unscathed when it comes to server problems and bugs. In a post on their official news site, Elyon has addressed the long queues and server lag that players in the EU are experiencing.
Now that Elyon has gone the free to play route, anyone who is interested in hopping into the game now, can. In the EU, the influx of players has caused tremendous lag and long queue times, which has now been addressed by the development team. According to the statement, lag and server queues are being looked into, as they try to determine the best way to improve the situation. So far, they have disabled World Quests and RvR on all servers until the 27th at the very least.
The statement follows a short tweet released late the previous day, where BlueHole Studios simply stated they would suspend World Quests as the team works “around the clock” to improve performance.
We have decided to temporarily disable World Quests on all servers. This should improve performance on all servers. We're working around the clock to monitor and eventually fix the issues. Thank you for your patience and support! ??— Elyon (@Elyon_thegame) October 23, 2021
In order to curb the queue times that EU players are also experiencing, Elyon will release a 3rd server, called Perseus. They will also shut down new character creation on the Andromeda and Sagittarius servers temporarily, in an effort to ensure players that already have characters on those servers, won’t have to deal with any influx of new players attempting to hop into the game.
So far, Elyon has seen a peak of nearly 15 thousand concurrent players in Steam, as detailed on steamdb. With a mixed steam review score nearing around 50% positive, with many negative reviews panning the games performance, BlueHole will have their work cut out for them to make beneficial changes and find their core audience.
