Some questions and answers:
The kernel is new and now there are no bugs on it?
Answer: Alas, this is not so, the server is pirated and the presence of bugs to one degree or another will still be present.
So we are not able to fix absolutely all the bugs with our small team of developers.
BUT we are trying to fix bugs as much as possible, paying special attention to critical flaws, so that players have the most comfortable time in the game.
The kernel is new now and now there will be no server crashes?
Answer: It is no longer new; in a year of work, a huge number of server crashes and errors have been fixed. But falls are still possible.
What kind of online will it be at the start?
Answer: Unfortunately, we do not have the gift of foresight, and therefore we do not know! And we won’t lie with the numbers.
Why did the launch of the last Pandaria realm fail, will this one fail too?
Answer: During the last launch of the Pandaria realm, we made mistakes in administering the Pandaria content testing system, which resulted in unreliable data on its operation and a premature start.
To correct this error, the head of the testing department was changed, the methods for checking content were also changed, and the staff of the testing department was also increased.
Over the past year, we have done a lot of work to improve the performance of Pandaria content.
