Hello,

I just saw that the NA servers are now listed as all Very High instead of Full. This is awesome, but I’ve got a question. How long will the pop limits be open? Can we generally expect the servers to stay at Very High throughout the Christmas event?

Thanks!

Here’s some information on server capacity, straight from our team lead, Stephen:

  1. People actually do change servers, so some Full servers become Very High just from people moving around.
  2. We continuously monitor the World populations and make adjustments, but there is no scheduled update period. It depends on demand for particular worlds and how much people move around and (don’t forget) how many new players join specific worlds.
  3. We frequently adjust the World population caps just before events, but that’s not guaranteed.

So there may be adjustments made as or even before Wintersday gets into full swing — it will happen if needed. But those adjustments are a normal thing and from what I’ve seen, the team is watching the World every day, so the near-daily adjustment could be so subtle you don’t notice them as frequently as they happen.

Somehow I think the Wintersday event will be so exciting that the capacities will be raised, and count on the team to do that if it’s needed.
