The Stream Team: A Shards Online stress test

    
12

How is Shards Online coming along? Or maybe you just want to see MassivelyOP’s MJ bring down a server! MJ is taking part in a server stress test, and since the idea is to crowd in and test the limits, she’s prepared for a possibly bumpy ride. Join us live at 1:00 p.m. to poke in to peek at the latest progress with her (and see if she can, indeed, help break a server!).

What: Shards Online
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 1:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday, September 26th, 2015

The show is over now, but we’ve embedded it here just for you. Don’t forget to check out past streams and playlists posted to our videos collection!

Damonvile dorn2 MJ Guthrie The links are always one more click away.  Whenever you see a game name that is a link like where is says “What: Shards Online” it will have the link to the gamesite and sometimes the studiosite at the top of the page followed by all the MOP articles that have it tagged.

dorn2 deganderson Zulika_Mi_Nam Thanks, definitely one to keep a close eye on. So tired of theme parks with their jumping through hoops dungeons.

dorn2 MJ Guthrie Yeah it’s one of the most irritating things this site does. I don’t need tags and links to help me find the post I’m already reading but one to the official site of the game they’re covering would actually be useful.

Nah it’s far from a straight up clone.  This is the first attempt at a serious modding friendly MMO too.  It has some other neat features like the ability to run your own server with different rules.  Connect servers and son on.

Think of it like trying to merge UO with the NWN modding scene.  With full size servers of course.

There’s no link to the game even.

Zulika_Mi_Nam Cool so is this a straight up ultima clone? I’d love to hear what they are doing in a couple of sentences. Is it anything like SWG? (Hoping hoping)

I bought into Shards Kickstarter and continue to be impressed with the dev team and the progress they have made in such a short time.  Game is looking and playing fantastic.  I can’t wait to see all of the user created worlds within Shards.

Whenever I think backing something I start doing research.
Here is the team behind the project.  This may help you if you are on the fence.

The test is pretty fun… Only problem for me was latency to US servers, but at least current community servers are EU based :)
