Quick update

Happy Holidays everyone. I hope your days are filled with egg nog and cheer! Our days are filled with technomancy at all hours of the day and night. Here are some quick updates.


Overkill


Brand new Overkill systems for Joker have just arrived in our data center and we are now working on getting them deployed as soon as possible.


Engine Upgrade


The engine update is proceeding along at a brisk pace, with no significant delays being introduced. Thus, it is still on track to be completed early next year.


Server/Game Performance


After some exhausting research we have identified one possible cause of the latency. The issue, as you know, has been a particularly vexing and elusive problem to nail down, and not something we could just throw time/resources at. Because of the nature and how it might help things, we've gone ahead and recklessly tossed it onto both OTW and Colby. If you play on Colby, consider hopping in, performing a /latencytest or two if you run into any trouble, and sending it our way. We're hopeful, but we've been hopeful in the past, so the only thing remaining where our heart used to be is a smoldering lump of coal unwilling to let itself be hurt again. Update: The fix does not seem to have resolved the issue to any significant degree :(


Other Stuff

We've some events in store for the holiday period so make sure you stay up to date on the Forums, Facebook, and on Twitter.

PS - APB Retribution will be launching soon, so make sure you toss them a Facebook like!

  5. @Adam K Joker seems to be the "Origin" of the lag. During lag testing they saw that whenever Joker started lagging it affected the other servers aswell.

  6. Early next year huh, that's sooner than I expected. This seems like an honest blog post though, so I'll take your word for it.

    Keep it up guys, the engine update's gonna be crazy!
