Player Capacity
« on: January 29, 2017, 08:43:21 am »
What's the planned maximum player capacity for this game going to be? I'm wondering if it will be a universal player limit or something that the hosts could change. PS- My friend(s) and I would be very disappointed if the player capacity was to be any less than 100.

That being said, we will be able to give you a more exact (i.e. any number at all) player count after we have done our first large scale server stress test, which should be relatively soon. We will keep you updated in the Developer Blogs about it.

We are not ready to state player numbers yet. The engine is Unity version 5.

Yes, as a long time player of both Mount and musket and Napoleonic Wars I am hoping that servers should be able to hold at least 150 people and running good. But yes, any less then a 100 would be a big disappointment to be completely honest.

Any update on this yet?

I'm, er, too lazy to check the devlogs.
Ask me about any 59th/Napoleonic Roleplay/Jailbreak related stuffs.

Just PM me if steam friends are full.

Closed Beta will involve stressing the servers and testing how much they will hold. That's why thus far it is undetermined.

I suspect it will be the same as other games. The game will be able to hold a maximum of X players in a server, and server hosts will offer servers with any number of slots up to this limit to those that wish to purchase them.

Considering how vast this game is going to be, with both Naval and Land combat taking place on the same map, I further suspect that a high player capacity will come into effect.
