Zezenia Online is evaluating new infrastucture for our game servers. A public Test Server is now open to all players, and we hope to receive your feedback on its performance. Please take some time to play on the test server and answer these questions:
- Did you experience any lags, skips or freezes while playing?
- What is your latency (indicated by the client)? Where are you playing from, and what sort of internet connection are you using?
- Did you notice any other issues with test server?
The test client is available for download here. The server is based on a snapshot from a few days ago, so don't panic if some of your character progress is missing!
This Test Server features automatically optimized routing much like the "Game Proxy" feature, meaning that it is not available in the test client.
Based on your feedback we will decide whether the new infrastructure is a good fit for our diverse group of players in North & South America, Europe and beyond.
In addition to the new location, the Test Server has received various optimizations to remove possible instances of server-side skips & freezes. Game network data is now compressed to reduce data use (by over 50% in internal tests) & congestion. These improvements will be shipping soon.
You will also notice a new latency indicator in the game client. Should the latency be too high for smooth gameplay a warning will be shown.
Please give the new Test Server a try and let us know of your experience in this thread!
