Game Modifications - April 24, 2012

Tomorrow, we will be adding a game patch to all DOFUS servers to address some lag problems that have been present on high population servers since the last update. This patch was tested over the weeked on three servers (Ulette, Many, and Crocoburio) before being deployed on all servers.

This test period was successful, these three servers were protected from the high lag issue over the weekend, compared to other game servers that were not using the same patch.

We want to thank you all for your patience during this period of lag, and we will talk more tomorrow, as we have been internally discussing compensation for the servers that have been affected by this problem.

First Ankama intervention

As promised, I've returned to talk about compensation for lag that has entered the game after version 2.6.

This lag effected only high-to-full population servers, and caused lag spikes of over 1000 ms during peak playing time. This means that our lower-population servers, like Shika, Solar, and Zatoishwan, did not experience this source of lag.

As of today, we have patched the game with a fix that should prevent this source of lag on all servers.

In compensation to the servers in our community who have been effected by this problem for the last three weeks (namely Rushu and Rosal), we are offering them three weekends of double experience and double drops*! The weekends will be scheduled as followed:

[blockquote]May 4, beginning at 4 PM (GMT) until May 7, 7 AM (GMT)
May 11, beginning at 4 PM (GMT) until May 14, 7 AM (GMT)
May 18, beginning at 4 PM (GMT) until May 21, 7 AM (GMT)
[/blockquote]
In addition, all accounts in our community that were subscribed between 7 AM (GMT) April 3, 2012 and 5 AM (GMT) April 24, 2012 will be credited with the following compensation on April 24, 2012:

[blockquote]2 Tofukaze Tofus
3 Tempus Bloomus flowers**
[/blockquote]
Once again, we thank you so much for your patience and understanding over the past few weeks, and we ask you to pardon us for the inconvenience.

[size=10]*The Experience bonus does not apply to fights that take place in the Arenas or to professions. It does apply to the Kolossium and to quests.
**Tempus Bloomus flowers can be redeemed at with the NPC Doro L. Blak at the Xelor Class Temple (3,1) for either a candy that gives +100 wisdom for 30 fights OR a candy that gives +100 prospecting for 30 fights OR 20 Eniripsa Powders OR a free pet resurrection.[/size]

The database queries required to create the list of players who are eligible for the compensation above are taking longer to create than anticipated. This means that it is taking longer than anticipated to assign the compensation rewards. It's possible that they will not be rewarded today.

We'll let you know as soon as the compensation rewards have been distributed.

Compensation distribution for Tofukaze Tofus and Tempus Bloomus flowers began this morning (April 26). Because of the large number of accounts involved, the distribution will take a long time, and should be completed this afternoon, around 17:00-18:00h (in-game time). Don't be surprised if different players don't receive their compensation all at the same time.

Thanks for playing, and thanks for your patience!
