NCsoft MMO Aion’s been experiencing some clogging issues since it went live yesterday, with many seeing waits of several hours before being able to get a-levelling.
The publisher isn’t worried.
“This isn’t a scenario that’s likely to be repeated regularly since it’s really just about that initial rush of players trying to gain access to the game,” a rep told EG.
“These next few days we will be calculating data and weighing the ideal time to open more servers. I think that the community will understand how important a healthily populated server in a game with PvPvE is, and that we do not want to go down the low-pop server path.”
The game releases in Europe on Friday.
