April has been quite the month. We knew we were growing fast, and April 6th (forever known as Dark Friday at Digital Extremes) was the day we knew Upgrades needed to be made.

Please take a look at the following image to see how our concurrent users have been affected this month:

Exhibit A: April 6th, our concurrents dropped off fast – real fast. This is the Darkest Day in Warframe Server history.  See more about this day here: https://forums.warfr...l-6th-12am-est/

 

Exhibit B: April 10/11 was when our website and game went down at the same time, two days in a row. We had an issue with our stats server this day – some player’s stats were not properly recorded.

 

Exhibit C: April 12, when we deployed a new server it kicked everyone.

 

So where are we now?

 

- 5 out of 5 new pieces of hardware (a.k.a super-hamsters) were installed on April 17th and April 18th.

- We anticipate stable Warframe servers moving forward (YAYJ).

 

Any problems over the past few weeks (from connection issues to progress not saving) can likely be attributed to these downtimes.

Let’s keep movin’ forward and put these new servers to the test!

 

Hope to see you all in game!

Great! Less (or no more) disconnects... now if only I could join my friends' session without starting an empty mission and having them join on the same, empty mission, then move on to what we actually want to do.

Is it wrong I almost wish the servers were hamster powered? Anyhow like others said awesome work, any chance maybe we could get a sneak peak at the specs of this new hardware?

I was hoping for some numbers but I guess I can use my imagination. I forgive Digital Extremes for the troubles in the past (not all your fault) as its Open Beta but better planning should of be done for these types of situations. However I won't be so forgiving when the game get released. I just thought I put that point out there.

You jest but in all seriousness I can totally feel the difference. Watch how long the login spinner runs -- feels much faster to me.

Wow! That day when servers went off and on and off and on I

though a lot of players would quit Warframe :( I read complains

in the region chat. But good thing you could update your

hardware :)
