Whereas Helldivers 2 has been fairly profitable on PS5 and PC since its latest launch, the trip has not been notably easy.
Gamers have been affected by widespread login points on high of usually not receiving rewards when finishing missions.
That is as a result of capability of the servers not being adequate to sort out the excessive visitors that hit the sport as a consequence of its sudden recognition.
Arrowhead Recreation Studios CEO Johan Pilestedt took to his personal X (previously Twitter) account to elucidate the scenario and apologize for the disruptions+.
Pilestedt mentions that three hotfixes have already been deployed to enhance the scenario, however the servers’ connection price per minute is restricted. Whereas this has been elevated from 10,000 to twenty,000, it is nonetheless not sufficient to deal with 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.
Which means gamers will nonetheless get “Failed to connect with server” errors, however the modifications made to the speed and peak limits ought to assist in no less than requiring fewer tries to log in efficiently.
The problem of rewards has additionally been mitigated however not solved absolutely, and it will require extra server upkeep. Pilestedt mentions that rebooting the sport might assist.
With the apology, he mentions that the workforce is working arduous to make it proper. They are going to now get some sleep and proceed attempting within the morning.
Thanks on your persistence throughout the server upkeep. With it we deployed three “rapid-fixes”
geared toward enhancing the scenario with rewards usually not being handed out correctly, login-issues, and
To talk in technical phrases, our companies in addition to our accomplice companies have a price limiter that denies
connections past a quantity per minute to forestall the whole system from failing. We managed to
enhance the speed restrict from 10,000/min to twenty,000/min and the overall capability of concurrent gamers was
elevated from 250,000 whole to 360,000 whole. This was nevertheless nonetheless not sufficient because the participant depend
jumped to 360k after 5 and half minutes.
As such, the problem with login stays. If for any purpose you get the “Failed to connect with server”concern it
implies that the utmost variety of login requests for that individual minute is exceeded and/or that
the servers are full and would require somebody to log off earlier than permitting new gamers in. As talked about
above, the elevated capability ought to require much less retries to get in.
As for the reward concern, the repair was mitigated however not resolved. And with out extra server
upkeep this can nonetheless not work as meant. Should you get the problem you may attempt rebooting the sport to
enhance the probabilities of it being reset. That is as a result of excessive visitors on the servers resulting in rewards not
being tracked accurately by our servers.
I do know the development concern is irritating, particularly for newer divers that wish to unlock candy gear.
For now, please as soon as once more settle for our honest apologies for the problems you are dealing with and relaxation assured,
we’re doing our utmost to make it proper. So as to take action, proper now it’s essential that our workforce will get some
sleep and we can be again at this once more in a couple of hours.
