I Wish

So, in an attempt to actually pull this blog back in a SF related direction (well Fantasy anyway), when I got home after work today, I noticed I received a beta test ID for Wish. Yes, its a fantasy setting, but I’ll give it a shot as a tester. Besides, I never received my Planetside ID so screw them. Anyway, they say that for beta, they’ll be able to handle 5000 simultaneous users on a cluster, with a goal of 10k at release. Check out the Wish Server Cluster. Its a rack of blades from the “premiere provider of high-density blade servers. . . in the industry”, Racksaver. Hmm, I wonder how they stack up, so to speak, against, say, HP?

Anyway, its a sweet looking cluster though. I wonder how they manage it? I will be posting my thoughts, except for what’s expressly forbidden by the NDA. Gameplay experiences are not, so that’s what you’ll get!

Has nothing interesting to say so in the interest of time, will get on with not saying it.

  1. I dont know – its a nice cluster and all that, but I am probably just gonna wait for WOW – the current crop of MMORPGs are just not doing it for me…

  2. No no no. Its not a MMORPG. Its a UMMORPG. Sheesh.
