Winter Alpha update #2 - The Apocalypse?
Here's another report from the front lines of our Winter Alpha!
The servers were pushed to their limits on Sunday when hundreds of players collected in the great fort at Mordreds Guard and slapped each other in the faces a bit (with lasers). Much fun was had, before it all just got a bit too much for the server.
There were lots of players in the castle... and more at the entrance to the region...(screenshot from Bogul of Vendetta2)
Thanks for helping us stress test the servers, everyone!
But seriously, it was a great moment for us to see that many people in a fight at once, as it really shows how far the game's population has come, and makes us even more determined to make sure that awesome encounters like this will be possible in the future!
And after the servers were restarted, the settlers of Albion got straight back down to it! Let's see the movers and shakers of Albion for this week:
[Ace]Insane - Mordred's Guard (they got the one everyone crashed, good job guys!)
[VM2] Vendetta 2 - Arthur's Shield
[VM2] Hammer & Sickle - Merlin's Watch
As of the time of writing, the rankings for fame and kill value stand thus:
So veteran alliance VM2 is still blazing ahead in the fame stakes, though rivals Ace are catching up, with Banished in 3rd place.
Banished allies Insane get a look in this time, with player Insane in 3rd place. Check out Jaden, who streams on Twitch too!
