World Queueing and Instances - 21-Jun-2011

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

The next Runescape system update will be in approximately 30 minutes to one hour.

 

This update will add two changes into game. The first is a new world queuing system, where you will now be placed into a queue when trying to log into a full world, which will automatically log you in once there is enough free space on the world.

 

The second update will add some preliminary functionality to a new instance world system. If you take a trip to the TzHaar Fight Pit, you will now be able to select to play either Local or Global matches. A local match will function in the exact same way as before. A global match will automatically log you into a special instance world, along with anyone from any server who selects the same, to allow for easier access to larger games.

 

Well be keeping an eye on the effects of this over the coming week. Invite your friends along for a round or two of gladiatorial violence in the Fight Pit and youll be helping us tremendously.

 

There will be no game update this week.

I find it a bit strange that they don't put this update on the main page. Maybe to not lagg the instances?

But they are great updates, should be a main update instead of the royal update...

Aww, I actually hoped it would be the Aura's...

Well, guess I'll have to wait another week.

 

Does sound interesting. This way stuff like the Fight Pits can actually become do-able.

interesting.

 

i look forward to seeing how much this will lag my computer when fighting 3000 people at once XD

 

the queuing thing though is meh, i can get on any world i want but i do know how anyoing it can be.

 

edit: i get the impression that this global thing only effects the tzhaar thingie. is this true?

It can still be auras. They don't usually release stuff this early during the day. There's still a slight chance of auras in 4-6 hours.

Let's hope the instances will be implemented for every team-based minigame (Castlewars and the like), when the tests come out positive.

Was hoping for a very long time that they'd do a waiting list for full worlds.

 

The instance thing sounds interesting. Might help to cut down the lag from themed worlds if they start doing it for all events like castle wars, soul wars ect.

Me behave? Seriously? As a child I saw Tarzan almost naked, Cinderella arrived home from a party after midnight, Pinocchio told lies, Aladin was a thief, Batman drove over 200 miles an hour, Snow White lived in a house with seven men, Popeye smoked a pipe and had tattoos, Pac man ran around to digital music while eating pills that enhanced his performance, and Shaggy and Scooby were mystery solving hippies who always had the munchies. The fault is not mine! if you had this childhood and loved it put this in your signature!

I don't see why they would limit this to only the fight pits. This would be great to give life to MA, PC, Trouble Brewing, and Conquest.

Because they are testing it, most likely to see the interests and to find the biggest bugs.

Seems pretty good. They also added Lobby In and Out to the displayfps menu. However, making another way to get into an instanced area only allow for a plethora of new bug abuse chances.

CFT in this context is "Controlled Forced Teleport"; basically its a near impossible to fix bug that [wagon] glitches use to smuggle/break stuff.

The classic fight caves CFT results in you winning the fight cave all the time as no-one can find you in the arena to kill you as you CFTed out and thus walk around randomly gaining tokkul and have the red skull.

Small, but pretty good updates. I'm looking forward to see if the same option will be implemented for other multiplayer minigames. :P
