Dear community, we have been working very hard since our last announcement to get things running, and it’s time for an update! Thank you very much for the patience you have all shown thus far. We know it is not easy to wait for something as exciting as the return of your long lost characters. So let’s take a look at what’s been happening, and what you can expect in the upcoming few days.
We will be holding a stress test on Sunday, November 20th, starting at 6pm GMT+1. The purpose of this stress test will be to push our hardware and code to the limits. We ask that all players who want to ensure a smooth launch take part. It is an extremely critical part of launching any server, and high attendance is crucial in it’s success. If we are able to locate and repair any problems now, we won’t have to deal with it at launch. The server will be running the Nostalrius code. During the test, we will be pushing the server to its limits and give you something entertaining to do at the same time. We will be spawning monsters of varying degree for the masses of level 1’s to battle in order to push calculations to the limit.
