Whereas Helldivers 2 has been fairly profitable on PS5 and PC since its latest launch, the journey has not been significantly clean.
Gamers have been affected by widespread login points on high of usually not receiving rewards when finishing missions.
That is because of the capability of the servers not being adequate to deal with the excessive site visitors that hit the sport on account of its sudden recognition.
Arrowhead Sport Studios CEO Johan Pilestedt took to his private X (previously Twitter) account to clarify the scenario and apologize for the disruptions+.
Pilestedt mentions that three hotfixes have already been deployed to enhance the scenario, however the servers’ connection charge per minute is proscribed. Whereas this has been elevated from 10,000 to twenty,000, it is nonetheless not sufficient to handle login calls for.
On high of that, the sport is peaking at 360,000 concurrent customers, which is the restrict the servers can deal with. This has additionally been elevated from 250,000.
Because of this gamers will nonetheless get “Failed to connect with server” errors, however the modifications made to the speed and peak limits ought to assist in at the least requiring fewer tries to log in efficiently.
The difficulty of rewards has additionally been mitigated however not solved totally, and it will require extra server upkeep. Pilestedt mentions that rebooting the sport might assist.
With the apology, he mentions that the staff is working laborious to make it proper. They may now get some sleep and proceed making an attempt within the morning.
Thanks to your endurance in the course of the server upkeep. With it we deployed three “rapid-fixes”aimed toward bettering the scenario with rewards usually not being handed out correctly, login-issues, andserver capability.
To talk in technical phrases, our companies in addition to our accomplice companies have a charge limiter that deniesconnections past a quantity per minute to stop the complete system from failing. We managed toincrease the speed restrict from 10,000/min to twenty,000/min and the whole capability of concurrent gamers wasincreased from 250,000 complete to 360,000 complete. This was nevertheless nonetheless not sufficient because the participant countjumped to 360k after 5 and half minutes.
As such, the problem with login stays. If for any motive you get the “Failed to connect with server”challenge itmeans that the utmost variety of login requests for that exact minute is exceeded and/or thatthe servers are full and would require somebody to log off earlier than permitting new gamers in. As mentionedabove, the elevated capability ought to require much less retries to get in.
As for the reward challenge, the repair was mitigated however not resolved. And with out extra servermaintenance this may nonetheless not work as meant. In case you get the problem you’ll be able to strive rebooting the sport toincrease the possibilities of it being reset. That is because of the excessive site visitors on the servers resulting in rewards notbeing tracked accurately by our servers.
I do know the development challenge is irritating, particularly for newer divers that need to unlock candy gear.For now, please as soon as once more settle for our honest apologies for the problems you are going through and relaxation assured,we’re doing our utmost to make it proper. So as to take action, proper now it’s essential that our staff will get somesleep and we will likely be again at this once more in a couple of hours.
