Megaserver is a terrible idea for early sieges


13 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

The first sieges of the Korean megaserver were laggy and everyone disconnected multiple times unless you were lucky. This occurred with only the established sieging guilds participating and flooding the channel specific siege regions. These guilds were what was left after 6 months of the game being released and guilds that could not do sieges did not even try that day.

If the western release of this game starts out with a mega server sieges are gonna be lagfests and probably crash the servers. Everyone will be wanting to try sieges and they will all have to go to only 3 channels for it. It would be much better if NA daum follows KR if they want a megaserver, start out with separate servers and let the rush of people get filtered through. After the population is stable then you can merge everyone and not have to worry about dozens to hundreds of guilds all trying to siege on only 3 channels.

For those new, an example of what i mean is this:

At the beginning of KR BDO there were 7-8 servers all with 4 channels. sieges were done on channel 1 of each server for the entire map. Later channel 4 was removed and it was only 3 channels per server.

After the mega server all servers were merged but kept their naming conventions. So Calpheon server with 3 channels turned into Calpheon-1, Calpheon-2, Calpheon-3 channels under the mega server. Now instead of each channel 1 from all of those merged servers being a siege channel. Only the channel 1 server named after a region has sieges. So if you want to siege for the calpheon castle? Under the megaserver you must go to Calpheon 1 and siege there.

Now you can see how half a year into Korea a megaserver for sieges works out okay, there are the 5 regions of Belanos, Serendia, Calpheon, Media, and Valencia to siege on and you have established guilds that are sieging and not a rush of every single guild playing the game. If Daum starts with a megaserver there will only be three regions to siege in and everyone is going to swamp those 3 channels.

This is bad for the game and not only will the mega server kill open world PvP competition, it will kill the grand opening of sieges and create a huge backlash.

Please rethink the Mega-server Daum. Even if you are under contract to have one, at least see if you can delay it for a few months to get a stable population.

Having a server crashing siege is like a backslash to Auroria launch AA and it would turn off a lot of people. Also before mega server there were more gvgs and more pvp as well comparison to after mega servers.

I'd prefer not to have one, but I am assuming there are contracts in place for what they can and cannot change. I know there were things in place for JP and RU. So if a mega-server is under contract it will happen no matter what.

Delaying however, may be possible.

After alot of discussion on the topic this essentially sums it all up. We all know how the megaserver impacted KR...lets not make the same mistake here.

I feel silly making a post about this cause it looks like I just found my answer here.

I hope DAUM will ignore such threads.

One megaserver, no other option.

I think they know what they do it's a problem PEARL ABYSS already know. I would say if they CAN do it without a "lagfest" (maybe they found a way) they can put in a megaserver from day 1.

Hopefully, they learned from their past experience and know what to do to launch properly. Of course, nobody likes lagfests, but if they can actually pull it off nicely, I think a mega-server is better since it avoids community splitting.

I'm not gonna say wether a megaserver or multiple ones would be better,i'm just gonna say,and i think i speak for everyone who have played Sieges in the KR OBT,make things right.
Rubber-banding to death in Sieges wasn't the nicest thing to do back on KR.
