Penny Arcade Interviews Blizzard on WoW
8:25 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In an interesting twist, web comic site Penny Arcade has interviewed Blizzard about the much-publicized outages affecting some World of Warcraft servers. The frank discussion revolves around unexpected high demand for the game, and how the company has been trying to cope given the increased load.

They also discuss how this will affect launches in other parts of the world:

Will the European launch utilize the same realms, or will these players be hosted on all new equipment? If they are hosted on new servers, what have you done to ensure that the launch will be free of the problems mentioned above?

They will be on their own set of hardware, as with our Korean release. Our teams are learning from the experience of our North American launch and are applying that knowledge to the servers in Europe. We hope to provide them with a smooth launch.

If you're a World of Warcraft fan, or someone considering signing on, you should definitely head over to Penny Arcade now to read the rest of the very informative interview.
