The Mordhau team is celebrating the game's first week of release with the big news that it has sold over 500,000 copies of the game and that peak concurrency during its first seven days reached 60,000 players. Even in celebration, however, the team acknowledges the difficulty with the game's launch and lists out a number of areas that have proven frustrating for players. The letter wraps up with a look at what is being worked on for both the immediate and longer term.
Unfortunately the launch wasn't as smooth as we had hoped. Server performance was abysmal and reward drops such as Gold and XP, as well as unlocks were not functioning properly. We are still in the process of seting up new servers in regions that need them and as a result the Matchmaking can still be spotty. There's also some other Matchmaking related bugs that prevent parties from joining the same game, or BR lobbies to populate very slowly, but we're on top of that. All things considered, the majority of launch issues have been resolved. As for compensation of the lost Gold and XP. We have not forgotten about it and will be shipping it via the next patch.
