Skyforge producer says current server instability is ‘not acceptable’

This isn't a promo shot, it is literally this empty.

If you were hoping that Skyforge had left its earlier server issues behind and a glorious new future awaited it free of queues, disconnections, or lag, we have some bad news for you. Another rash of server problems have hit the game, and producer Aaron Biedma wrote a brief letter to the community last night stating that the current state of the servers for the game is simply unacceptable.

Fixing the problem will require setting up additional server hardware and upgrading both the game’s client and the server software to provide greater stability. Of course, the process of upgrading all of this will result in more instability and maintenance, so it’s one of those “big picture” things. Still, if the net result is that Skyforge can move on to a better and less server-crippled state, that’s a net positive.

And if you don’t think so, maybe you’ll be soothed by the promise of “special in-game gift[s] to thank players for their ongoing patience and understanding as the team weathers these growing pains.”

Mitzruti Wratts So it hasn’t progressed at all from any other MMO launch in history?  Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

Godson691 Yeah, devs and CMs really speak out about the game’s issues on reddit. Quite a surprise actually.

Well no shit it’s unacceptable, that’s goes without saying.

Would any producer in their right mind say “server instability is acceptable”?

Server issues seem really random too. Me and my bf started playing yesterday and I had issue after issue. My bf (in the same room, same internet) had no issues at all.

DPandaren Yeah, me neither.  I did start having queues a couple nights ago, which surprised me.  Also, the open world zones are really full, but I had no lag or disconnects.

Wratts  Could resurge for launch though.  Especially if it goes onto something like Steam.

Glad I’m holding off on activating the CE for 60 days of time ’til I’m able to give it more regular play.

Apparently devs didn’t expect brazillion of players on NA servers.
