The good news about the Pagan Online stress testing that was meant to occur over the past weekend is that it did exactly what stress testing is designed to do. It gave the designers a very clear picture of the stress the servers would be placed under and immediately made it clear that there would be a need for better servers. Of course, that success is a result of the servers being annihilated by the demand to the point that the entire stress test was cancelled.
Designers assure fans that the team will be back with future weekend events and such, it just means that this particular event cooked the servers and required a mulligan. For those of you who have forgotten all about Pagan Online, it’s a new online action RPG (also known as “OARPG” for folks who like letters, or pronounced “oar-pig” for the same people who call it a “fak”) due for release this year from Wargaming.net. Perhaps the designers also expected less buzz, given the smoldering state of the servers.
