If there are only 225 servers per platform that’s only 9000 public spots available. Just doesn’t seem to add up to me.
I think they said they have more on backup.
I also think they are counting on a large number of “open” private servers. I think more of the private servers are going password protected after launch to control the communities though.
Privately-run servers might add another 6,000. Even still, I get what you’re onto. The servers might fill up pretty easily. They’ll likely need to overflow into their backup.
I understand what many have said. My buddies and I equal 4-5 people, we want to PvP, but would rather just join a public server. What sucks, the small amount of slots and everyone will get off work at different times. Can’t really join all at once.
There are probably a lot of spot instances that can be spun up on demand if the server load reaches a particular level without any intervention.
Anyone who has played the game before will probably choose a private server. They are more reliable and have active admins to crack down on cheating and help with bugs.
keep in mind servers are down right now and 4800 people are in game on steam. Which means there are a fair number of private servers and single players.
