Let's Discuss RoA
Well at the moment their website is down.

Their patching servers are down.

Their adverts on places like www.tentonhammer.com are linking to this:



and launch is due "sometime after" 15 mins from now.

AV 2009 2.0 so far.

BUT I am downloading the game to see the fun, either way - let's hope they recover quickly from this blip!

They played the Hare in this race asking for early issues as well as advertise quite a bit, which is a recipe for disaster. They should have stuck with vets for launch, hammered out the issues and then advertised for newbs, but now they have just spent money to make any problems worse.

It might be a bumpy ride as it has  always been like that. But Im pretty sure once initial issues are fixed it will be tons of fun :D

I also think a less widely advertised launch would have benefited them. What good is an overhyped launch when they can't retain the players?

Yep, best time to do a site maintenance is at the exact time you claimed you would launch!

What?

This is a good thing - Ubergames should watch ROA Launch day closely as to NOT have a 8 + hour or couple of day delay with launch. :)

Website getting hit so hard guys it's nuts. We're going to ramp it up. We've never hit like over 5% but she's dying! Will be offline for a few minutes during the upgrade!

In their discord channel.
Given its been an hour and its still offline, id say they are having some issue's downloading more ram.

If the site cant handle the traffic, just imagine whats going to happen to the game server, my predictions of a shit show launch were well founded.

To be fair...
AV had their shop part of the website crash for like a week straight within a minute of it opening up...
Untill a good chunck of people had F5'd their way into a purchase and it wast getting spammed by quite as many people all at once.

They might have also upgraded their website, but its av...so maybe they just waited it out and expected people to want it bad enough to put up with their shit. We did, so they were right in some parts...

The forums are down because they are upgrading them, they announced in discord.

Im pretty sure AV intentionally limited daily sales that first week to prevent overloading the game server too much as they fine tuned stability. I know this because I personally waited for full release not wanting to play the f5 game for the 1000 clients a day which sold out in a minute or two every time.
