    Wondering if someone would like to take the time to draw a correlation between no. of people in a city that can actually log in with the city's score.

    I think lag is making everything reaaalllly difficult to do anything with. Especially with a smaller team.

    The lag ruined it for me. Maybe it is me being ignorant, but how is there lag in a text based game with current technology?

    Well, imagine there are 150+ people all spamming various commands basically at the same time.

    Probably not exactly a small amount of data to parse, hence the bit of lag.

    Dear @Sarapis, please for the love of jesus upgrade your servers. Every event that is intended for massive participation from the Achaean community ends in a shit show because of lag. Cut into the huge profits ya'll making and do us all a service and upgrade your infrastructure. The lag was absolutely terribe. Making the CTF unplayable in melee.

    also maintaining good servers is expensive for the income of a text game. migrating is also work. When there are only two or three paid admin and one paid coder, limits are everywhere. Maintaining bandwidth is also expensive. I imagine doubly so for a game based in America. The wonderful world of internet is complex and funky.

    Achaea is single-threaded, so every command is handled in turn. The fact that people start spamming commands during lag just makes it worse.

    Those seem like pretty shotty excuses to me, but I don't know what their P&L looks like. Just baffles me that there would be lag at all during something like that if they had semi-decent servers.

    It was more fun than I thought it would be, even with lag. And we did well! :)

    I don't know what Achaea does with their profits. I do know Zulah claims to have dropped 7K plus this month along with my 7K dropped over the last 3 months = 14,000 dollars just from two players in Achaea. They should be able to afford to pay everyone, upgrade and maintain their infrastructure. Especially when we have a lot of retired folk migrating to Achaea from other MUDS. Now from a business standpoint I'd understand if the pros didn't outweight the cons. Just come out and say that during big events you might as well log off so I don't waste my time.

    You can go ahead and log off during big events.
    More winning for me.

    My site will remain up, but will not be maintained. The repository will continue to have scripts added to it if I decide to play another game. Maybe I'll see you around in Starmourn!

    we cannot base our logic over this. that might be the 14000 dollars they got total. i guess you would need to get the data from them before you could drop a proper argument. Working on payment systems has made me appreciate the amount of work you have to do to get a program to run smoothly with multiple users sending requests. I dont mean it is solely expensive from a currency point of view. The resources you need does not always correlate with the money you have either. i wonder how many senior network engineers would want to work for achaea for example for the wages that iron realms can offer.

    edit: and i wonder how many programmers want to work on fixing legacy code re: what makarios said.
