Albion Online is so popular it had to add emergency teleporters to its main hub

Now I am hidden in the woods until they find me

People are playing Albion Online, which is a good thing for the game. However, it’s less good when Caerleon has more than a thousand people trying to get in it, since that’s the point at which no one can get into the city. Since all of the zones around the city are full PvP and all of the Outland portal zones are also full PvP, it’s not exactly a safe situation for players when the city is suddenly unavailable. But the issue is being addressed with teleporters.

Teleport stones have been added to several locations, allowing players to teleport to the Caerleon bank and back out to both the Outland zones or the adjacent regions with ease. Should issues arrive, teleporters can be easily changed without server restarts. The developers also note that this is a temporary solution, with a more permanent one planned for the next patch; until that solution is put into place, you can enjoy access to some emergency teleportation.

Buyer beware on this one!

The CEO of the company posted on the forums that there were just too many players and they don’t have any idea how to fix it. Common opinion is that they are just going to wait until enough players give up and leave for the game to be playable.

Right now they are restarting the server every couple of hours as their solution for overpopulation.

we’ve run into server hiccups a few times but i’d hardly call the game unplayable. and we’re based out of the city that the launcher literally warns everyone to avoid. lol

The CEOs response to the community was perfectly reasonable and to be clear he did not say that they don’t have any idea how to fix it.

He listed off the 3 main technical issues Albion is experiencing and then said exactly what they are doing about it. He was clear though that hardware was not the issue, the game was not built to scale like this without some concessions.

Here is the full read for anyone interested:

They said they hope to have a fix posted within two weeks. Don’t spread misinformation.

I have only watched a few videos on this game. From what I have seen, the crafting seems intriguing. The graphics/art style also seem pretty intriguing. I still have a soft spot in my heart for the visual style of WoW. [waves hand, MJ did not see that last sentence ROFL]

If there had been some sort of factions I think I would have given it a try but I imagine this is pretty much a gankfest ? Am I wrong in that assumption ?

there’s plenty of safe zones and zones where ganking is heavily penalized.

I don’t know what it is, I really don’t like this game at all, but I keep logging in and I’m having fun. I guess it is growing on me? I haven’t had this much fun in an MMO since Nilla WoW. I’m not a fan of the art style though, which I think is kind of putting me off to the game.

Same here. I like some grind but this is ridiculous. Still, I go on grinding. As long as this inertia keeps me going and I have fun it’s ok for me. There’s some distraction (PvE) from grind but it’s way not enough to keep interest up for more than a month. We’ll see how it goes after the first month of subscriptions.

My son explained that in many aspects of play, it’s basically medieval eve.
There’s nullsec and lowsec and highsec.
There’s dull, repetitive PvE that gives you the ability to do something if you don’t feel like being at risk that day, but after a pretty short while it’s mind-numbingly boring.
Otherwise, the main gameply is finding someone to vulch whilst avoiding being vulched in turn.

…which frankly turned me off. I might have been faintly interested, and I never minded playing in PvP servers, it’s just that I don’t think bugger-thy-neighbor should be the PRIMARY goal of gameplay, particularly in an equipment-based game where gear quality has a significant impact on the result of a fight.
