Sorry we couldn't break your servers, Yann. Embarassed


We tried!! We really did...with over 200 games happening at the same time!!! But even though Johnny's forces were kept moving, his line didn't break. Laughing

Good times with Solo games. Now on to the Normal Mode games this weekend! Cool

But the 2nd part of round 1 is still up for us on the East Coast -- less than 2 hours until we try again. Smile

LOL, we still have a second chance in a few hours. Usually traffic is much higher at that time!

SESSION 1 REPORT

Good news : the servers did not break down Very Happy
Bad news : the servers did not break down Twisted Evil

There is a new session in 1 hour 1/2. Soldiers, you can do even better! We are waiting for you for a massive onslaught! Have no mercy!

If you participated to the first session and cannot make it for this second solo one, see you on Saturday. Don't forget to come on Saturday, otherwise you won't have your nice medal and the GIs that come with it:

Yann

In any case a BIG THANK YOU from the bottom of our heart to everyone who participated to the first session. It was intense!

Great idea. Do we report glitches here or during the game in the chat room?

SESSION 2 REPORT

Well, it still did not break! Shocked

We did not reach the same traffic level as the first session, but we were not very far. This is surprising as we chose this second time slot precisely because it is usually the busiest hour. I guess many could not wait and chose the first session Smile

Thanks to everyone for your participation!

Next sessions: Saturday, same times. It will be Multiplayer games! Make sure you all come. We need to break this thing! Twisted Evil

Thanks a lot - it was fun!

Re:If you can help us break our servers... Thu, 07 April 2011 01:08
I tried to play two games but both crashed. I got a blue screen (out to the bios screen) on the first game and johnny stopped playing after the second turn during the card phase.
I also didn't get a prompt to resume either game.
Do I still get credit for playing?

Yes. As long as there was at least one solo game created or finished during the time period, it will work, even if the game aborted.
About the hard crash, it would be interesting to look at your logs! See details here:

I would also battle you if you are free during the hour.

I will be present and battling despite it being 0500 - 0600 local time. I might even be awake by the end of the hour.

Important! For those who missed the first session, we relaxed a bit the rules.

If you were not able to participate in our first session, all hope is not lost! You can still help us try to break our servers (and win the Chaaaarge! achievement and reward that comes with it). Simply play at least one Solo game during the same session before playing your Standard multiplayer games, and voilà.

We hope to see all of you on Saturday!

Played the first session, but will be in a plane all day today.

Sorry I can't this session.

Keep up the good work.

Thank you DoW for the award and the GI. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

They were worth getting out of bed at 5 am twice. Shocked Shocked Shocked

I hope we provided you with some useful data. From my perspective the battle may have run a little more slowly, but that may just have been my brain at this early hour of the day.

Dear players:

The first multiplayer session worked great! Lots of people came (even more than last Wednesday), this was good!

We did not break.

Your last chance in a few hours (21:00 UTC). I dare you to break us! Twisted Evil

A big THANK YOU to everyone who participated!

So what happens if we aren't able to break the server? Is that a good sign because you're prepared for large numbers of players, or is it a bad sign because you can't prepare for when it eventually does break? Rolling Eyes

Played a solo and multiplayer game in the second Sat session (2pm pacific). Everything went well. Except it didn't say I got the Chaaarge medal or the goodies. Is that because the multiplayer game ended at 3:04 pacific? Crying or Very Sad

Jingo, it's not 2PM Pacific yet. I'm writing this message at 4:40PM Eastern, which is 1:40PM Pacific. Any chance you played after 2:00 Eastern?

Log back on in a little while -- you still have time! CHAAARGE!

TEST REPORT

Hello everyone, just a short report right after the test. We broke all-high traffic records today, CONGRATULATIONS ! Very Happy

The servers survived - and actually without too much efforts. So it means that not only we can sustain that amount of traffic, but that we can most likely go much higher. This is really good news!

Again, we'd like to thank you the many of you who participated to this test. Some woke up in the middle of the night to come and play. We really appreciated it.

It was great to meet so many people online. Following the chat dialog was a bit crazy at times, but it was fun!

See you soon on the battlefield!
