The latest PlanetSide 2 producer's letter is out in the wild, this time in a celebratory mood with the recent launch of the New Soldier update and due to the original PlanetSide's sixteenth anniversary. As part of the celebration, players will have the opportunity for some throwback items including armor and weapons as well as be able to enjoy double and quadruple experience events
Devs will be hosting an anniversary stream on Thursday, May 23rd from 2:00 pm Pacific / 5:00 pm Eastern in the PlanetSide 2 Twitch channel.
Celebration aside, devs will be working hard on server optimization over the coming weeks.
We determined there are improvements that need to be made to the hardware and configuration of specific PlanetSide 2 servers. We began that effort recently by adding new hardware to the Cobalt and Miller data center. There are still some improvements that need to be made to the configuration of those servers, but we plan on chipping away at server performance issues on a case-by-case basis in the coming months. Connery has been dealing with a completely different problem that requires the replacement of specific hardware.
