Might be a good idea to clone core mobs and bang new spawns in open spaces... maybe abias (left of town and right of town)


Atleast having this number of people interested may give fin/isylv the incentive to add a new map with existing mobs in, to spread out this high number (if it is this high at peak times)... Then from there on if the UC stays at a high they can then think of expanding the game thurther with another map or something along those lines... Having TOO many people can be good because as i said it gives them something to work on expanding the game more...
Awaiting a decent long term official server...

Soma is designed for 500 users, not 200 users. The age old problem of only hunting 1 monster in 1 location only exists on low usercount servers.

The problems of having too many people at one mob spawn will only last up until raps, give or take...as you will have players leveling at different rates after that point, progressing to newer mobs at different times, DW's will be interesting though...

There's 3000 accounts but that doesn't mean there will be a 3000 usercount, I expect around 600-800 will be online for release. By the time I'm done marketing, yea there may be 3000-4000 usercount but we still have 7-8 days to worry about that. If you check out the old esoma stats they used to have 700 online at average, beta they hit 1.2k and that was WITHOUT dsoma. Now we have dsoma, a 1000 usercount will be fine.

The esoma server used to run on a shitty old dedicated server that had 512mb, technology changes and from my understanding this server has 24gb which is more than enough for SQL to deal with. If things do go south, I don't mind fronting some money so we can have a secondary VPN to host another gateway on.
