Improved Server Responsiveness in 6.0 (with Video)

5 posts in this topic

This is in regards to increased server responsiveness, which will be in full effect with the 6.0.2 patch that drops on Tuesday, October 14th.

 

There are three different things that will determine how the game tracks your activity: server latency, player latency, and server responsiveness. I mention the first two things here, but my main focus is server responsiveness. 

 

Responsiveness refers to the periodic "updates" the server does to track your character's activity and position. Since responsiveness of the servers will increase, there will be more of these updates, meaning the server will be more responsive to you.

 

I made this video, which discusses server responsiveness in Patch 6.0.2. There are some good examples at the end.

Hope this is helpful, as I put a lot of time into it! I'm making a ton of other Beta content but this is taking full effect real soon and I thought I'd post it here.

One thing I noticed since the patch, was the reduced lag. I used to almost always lag out or nearly crash when doing ordos with 40 people before the patch, while playing on an alienware X51 desktop computer. When I ran ordos this past tuesday, I had little to no lag, and the game seemed to be better at syncing my spells to the server whenever I used them, where it used to have a 1 second delay whenever I cast a spell on my Disc priest or druid.

I didn't notice that I was looting faster, though. I started playing on a private server and obviously it wasn't very good, and everything looked so awesome when I finally bought the game and got a subscription. But the one thing that surprised me was how slow looting was. On the private server, it was like instant, and I've always hoped that one day, this would get fixed. I guess I can keep waiting tongue.png
