We want to first off let all you know know how much we appreciate the love and support you have showed us over the years! This era has been insane proof of our mutual love and support.
This latest NA Season was a big breakthrough for our team, showing the massive potential growth for Archlight as a whole. Breaking over 2x our previous NA Season record from this Spring, we were on track to break 1000 concurrent that day as well but due to server overload, had to immediately put in a 550 player queue. From there, we had huge queue's for 2 weeks, while of course queue's are not ideal, it shows how much hype and excitement the new season brought and the changes we made. We learnt alot from this on the development angle that the community is wanting to see, and we will be focusing on similar concepts for future Seasons and Expansions.
However, with that our primary goal is supporting more players on our servers. Archlights growth was massive, and we want to ensure next time we can fully handle that growth and then some!
As the community and support grows from the playerbase, our team is able to grow! Phoenix & Hajter are both joining the Archlight Team full-time! Hajter will be a full-time community manager available to assist in player concerns & help facilitate feedback to our development team!
Phoenix has officially left his full-time job, in which he would use his little free time to help Archlight religiously to join the Archlight Team full-time! Phoenix will be focusing on priority scheduling for the developers (making sure critical bugs are addressed immediately), growth of the Archlight Community & content development. Phoenix has more experience about Archlight as a whole than anyone in the team, him joining the project full-time will be a massive asset to the future of Archlight. With this, he will also be officially retiring his in-game character to avoid any potential bias.
Rufus will be moving to a full-time programmer position focusing on Bug-Fixes and Content Development. Having another full-time programmer on Archlight will not only ensure faster bug fixes, but also a much better stream of content development, balances, meta changes and far more! As you have already seen this season with some critical fixes and issues addressed and reloaded within hours to minutes! This will only further improve.
We are super excited about the new growth to our Team and what this means for the future of Archlight and we could not have done it without all of you and your support. Thank you from our entire team.
