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!
