Incursion Launch Success

Jun 1, 2018 6:40:10 PM
Today we launched the Incursion Challenge League alongside Content Update 3.3.0. We initially ran into an issue with our login queue where only some users could log in, but we had it fixed and the realm operational within 20 minutes of launch. For fairness to the vast majority of users who would have been 20 minutes behind in the crucial period of the ladder rush, we restarted the Incursion Leagues. Since that point, everything has run smoothly and we set a new day-one player concurrency record (at 140,870 simultaneous users). We hope you enjoy playing Incursion as much as we enjoyed creating it. See you in Wraeclast! Read More.
