I'm very happy to announce that last weekend we released significant performance improvements to our server. For past couple weeks our server has been experiencing lag spikes when game ticks were basically put on hold, server even crashed when it could not resume the game service.
Resolving this issue put us through quite a journey and lots of changes have been done to in attempt to fix the issue. Since the release of final fixes we seem to not get any performance abnormality complains from the community and we're very happy that this process is over! No more restarts few times a day, they were only part of the process.
I hope community will be more trusting and relaxed to go back and enjoy staking and pk'ing without surprise lag. Also I'm very sorry for any players who were accused of DDoS by anyone wearing a tin foil hat. If anyone has lost some gear while playing, I hope you can use the opportunity of buffed drops to regear and enjoy the game
