Camelot Unchained attacks its own test server with an army of bots
While it’s always important to get players on to test servers for that human element, what if you need a huge army of characters on demand that never give up? That’s when you take Camelot Unchained’s approach by unleashing an army of bots on its test server to stress it out as much as possible.
“Right now, we have bots firing off 20,000 skills per hour, and logging in and out 16 times per minute, to help us not only track down issues like this, but also to stress test the ability system,” the team said in this week’s newsletter.
And when there’s a Camelot Unchained newsletter, there’s always a list of Camelot Unchained tasks that the team has tackled over the past week. Some of the items of note include work on archery mechanics, figuring out where your character respawns when it dies, and the first pass of the “banes and boons” system.
