Berimond Issues 08.10.16

Hi Everyone,


There are various reasons that the berimond event had to be ended early globally:

  • The event had actually caused two servers to close temporarily (the polish and german servers), meaning players couldn’t login at all.

  • Events can only be ended globally, so the event couldn’t have just been ended for the servers affected by the inability to login.


I’d like to apologise for the inconvenience caused by the event ending early, and if anyone has any more questions, I’ll have a go at answering them if you post them below. There will also be a more detailed explanation coming later.



Additional Information:

Why did we have to end Berimond early?


With the last update we reworked the quest system which was designed to harmonize much better with all of the ingame events. Everything went fine and worked as intended but there was a special case where this optimization couldnt keep up with the Berimond mechanics. In this event you have quests about destroying another faction's tower. Once this was done, each player of a faction should have had this quest completed even if they didn't do it. At this point the server experienced a massively increased data load. The server tried to achieve this for thousands of players at the same time. The problem was only related to the questbook but it caused heavy problems to the server, which itself worked fine. The massive data load forced it to its knees, because a short-term solution couldnt be found at that point and to avoid further frustration and losses it was decided to go for a premature end of Berimond, for the sake of server perfomance. Since this is a global event it is not possible to just end the event on the affected servers. This is why it had to be done globally on all servers unfortunately.

What happens now?

The rankings have been saved for this event and this will be used to come up with an appropriate compensation package for all affected berimond players. The effort to take part in the Battle of Berimond will also be considered. On monday we will have more information for you about this.
 
I hope this extra information will help you to understand the situation a bit better!

More will come on monday :D

Angus

    Okay, listen, we should get our stories straight, alright? If anyone asks -- and no one's gonna ask, don't worry -- but if anyone asks, tell them as far as you know, the last time you checked, everyone looked pretty much alive. Alright? Not dead.

    Nobody is going to space, mate!
    Marie Curie invented the theory of radioactivity, the treatment of radioactivity, and dying of radioactivity. In Victorian England, a commoner was not allowed to look directly at the Queen, due to a belief at the time that the poor had the ability to steal thoughts. Science now believes that less than 4% of poor people are able to do this.

    "Starting now, if I'm honest, to wonder if you're doing all this screen-breaking on purpose. Beginning to actually take it personally. You know what I mean? Like, it's like an insult to me.""Ohh...! There goes another one. There goes another one. They're not inexpensive. I'd just like to point that out. Um, it seems... unfair, y'know, smashing screens. You could give them to people. Instead of smashing them, unscrew them and, and give them to like a homeless person, I don't know what a homeless person would do, but uh, you get my point. It just seems... and you can't unscrew them either, they're bolted in, but... auh, just stop it!!"
    "No, seriously. Do come back. Come back, please."
    "Okay, I've decided not to kill you. IF you come back."
    "Aw. Just thinking back to the old days when we were friends. Good old friends. Not enemies. And I'd say something like 'come back', and you'd be like 'no problem!' And you'd come back. What happened to those days?"
    "Can't help but notice you're not coming back. Which is disappointing."
    "Oo! I've got an idea!"
    "YES YES! IN YOUR FACE! I GOT YO-ah, nope."
    "Fine. Let the games begin."

    People are going to need a lot more info and GGE are going to need to sort another comp pacckage. I have been building and about to start hitting when it went so a complete waste.

    FI after a faulty alliance tourney was a stupid choice as well.

    Thanks

    So spending the first day as I do building my camp and armies up so that I can start work on the second and subsequent days has been something of a waste of time!  That's a kick in the teeth if ever there was one.

    Come on GGS, you have to accept sooner or later the bugs are coming out thicker and faster than anything else. It's not exactly good for the game is it?  About time the main focus was directed to bug fixes before bringing out new features that will only bring with them yet more bugs.

    Angus I do hope they listen to you more than they do to the rest of us because this is getting beyond a joke.
