Deke Young tracking the USA-5 server launch

Post by DekeYoungAtlanta »

I will be online tomorrow to track the USA-5 server launch. I expect to be disappointed with another ERA rules server. I will also be interested to see how many counties are open on launch day.

USA-4 launched with less than half the counties available, including in Nevada where only 1 of 3 counties were open, which meant that there were not enough counties open for the state capitol seat.

I have only heard a few people talking about this launch. There is the usual group of players who are suffering under the delusion that individual players have a better chance of controlling a king seat on a 'new server." I will be there to track player counts and see how long it takes players to race to page and claim a house. EU-5 and GC-4 both quickly ran out of accessible house slots leaving many factions without a house banner once the second wave of players reached the rank of Page.

The USA-5 server launched at 3:00 PM GMT THU 28 NOV 2018 with the ERA rules set. I spawned a village in North Georgia.

About half of the counties were currently available.

An hour after server launch there are 800 players on the leaderboard.

18 players in North Georgia.

3 players at Villein
4 players at Serf

Resource stashes spawned on the 2nd hour and if you are lucky enough to have one nearby you get 20 honor if you get there first.

This is the slowest server launch I have ever recorded.

6 and a half hours after server launch. There are 2,088 players on the server.

1 Gentleman
2 Aldermen
3 Yeomen
6 Thane
13 Commoners

There is only 1 open county per state. That means that anyone in a state with 3+ counties is screwed. You will not be able to vote for a provincial office. This is the same failure as the USA-4 launch.

GC4 was launched with the "early set" ERA rules with the ridiculous high flag costs for parish buildings. I will ask around to see if USA5 was launched with the same flaws.

10 hours after server launch and we have our first Page, first faction and first house. Why is it that people almost always choose House 10 first?

2,452 players on the server

1 Page
1 Gentleman
2 Aldermen
4 Yeomen
8 Thane
