Evony, the newest hit in the MMORTS gaming world, has over 500,000 players. Unfortunately with all these players, Evony has had a lot of lagging problems, where various servers are down and in-accessible. Players are forced to stare at the ticking clock, and many have gotten angry (and rightly so). I’d like to say that this is very common in early stage MMOs so members really should back off a bit. Yes, you have a right to complain a bit and ask for better service. The developers have heard the pleas and are trying their best.
As of May 28th, 2009, the developers latest solution to preventing lag, is by creating more servers to even out the load. In addition, Evony has made an auto-reconnect when a player is “kicked” or loses connection with the server he/she is on.
Another great upcoming feature is an official Evony Server Status page. The programmers are working hard to release this so that people can view the availability of servers at their leisure.
