Open Beta Test #3: the first 12 hours

Finally, the OBT3 has begun.

It arouse a massive interest for the game, resulting with numerous players downloading the client last night and trying to log in. This caused noticeable lags and ruined the game for some players who had less luck than the others - dying in random encounters was just one of the issues.

We are currently working on resolving them. The hardware seems to be quite overloaded, causing the abnormal lag peaks. This is due to the fact that some of our features are very complex, yet they have never been tested massively. This is the perfect opportunity to test them together, so that we may investigate any possible problems that could choke our hardware right now.

Thanks for understanding this delicate matter.

Keep testing, the game needs to be brought to the point where everyone can enjoy it.
