Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Campaign releases: Multi-worlding

TL;DR: Make multiple worlds for new campaigns, so more people can join in and with less lag.

Hi, as you may know, when a new campaign is out, its worlds become full rather quickly for some time, effectively making people unable to join until someone finishes (also there seems to be lag problems for some people when there are a lot of players in a world).

My idea is upon release, the are multiple copies of each world of the new campaign, which will all behave the same except for the fact they are separate worlds, allowing for up to 50*(number of worlds) people simulteanously in a campaign world.
Having 100 players split into 4 worlds (for example) is way more useful than 50 players in a single world, with 50 other trying to get in.

The only twist would maybe be the fact you have to rejoin the same world you left for the campaign save feature.

Later, once the campaign is not that much played anymore, the extra copies of the worlds could be removed, but I don't think it would be necessary.

Feel free to share your opinion about this and suggestions to improve this idea //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/smile

Re: Campaign releases: Multi-worlding

Maybe this would not be the best way, but still something needs to be done about the campaigns. Seriously, the first level in the new campaign had almost 50 people in it when I had seen it in the menu, my laptop would explode if I even considered joining.

I know there is also the "make it as if you have the [old] potion of solitude" idea, the differences between the 2 ideas are that with the solitude thing there is only one world (the best solution to lag-less playing, works as if it was 1 world per player), while with the multiple worlds you get to still communicate with people (you can chat and ask for help for a part, or whatever), it's just having separate worlds, really.

I totally agree, hopefully it only happens on a release, or the campaigns would be unplayable.

While I don't have this problem with my current laptop, I understand, and there are more people than you expect in this case.

Re: Campaign releases: Multi-worlding

There are many games that use something like this.
But for now I doubt it's worth the efforts: the worlds will be that popular for a day and then the amount of players in these worlds will go down.

Re: Campaign releases: Multi-worlding

Just wait it out, the campaigns aren't going anywhere, in about a day or so the lag will be gone. Apparently when ee moves to Unity lag won't be a problem anymore so there is not much point in trying to fix a temporary problem.


This is hella gay

Re: Campaign releases: Multi-worlding

Chill, I'll make a client that doesn't   listen to case "m" events.
(Aka wayyy less lag for every1)
EDIT: My computer must've lagged while i was typing it. Sentence fixed.

Oh, the irony.

On-topic: I guess it could also work, in this case it would be better if it was included as an option in the "vanilla" client

Re: Campaign releases: Multi-worlding

Is EE going to move to Unity? I don't think my Chromebook supports Unity, an my Windows computer is just way too slow.

It's moving to HTML5, so it's highly unlikely.
