It has been a little while since our last update regarding our network infrastructure improvements, and I’m here to give you guys a status update.
For the past few weeks, we have been busy working with our current partners on improving the situation for the people suffering from disconnects and unstable connections. As this includes trying to fix problems that are outside our own area of influence, it is a slow and frustrating process for us, as well as for those still affected. As a band-aid fix, we have partnered with ExitLag
to allow free use of their Software with Albion Online until August 15, providing a workaround for the disconnect issues.
This is of course only a temporary solution, and a permanent solution is still very much needed. As such, we have done a lot of work in the background to carry out a major overhaul of how the network infrastructure works with our servers.
We are nearly ready to move our servers to this new infrastructure, which is a critical part of our ongoing efforts to eliminate network problems players are suffering from. As the guild season kick-off is this Saturday, however, we have opted to wait until next week to deploy these changes. As this change will require an extended maintenance, an announcement of the exact day of that will follow.
