Server improvements and further account releasing

Last week some famous Kaya users accompanied me in an all-niter i pulled last  Wednesday. 

I had returned from a gathering and found someone online that i could make a technical consultation about, and when i heard the answer i started working immediately. At 1 am. I went straight on until 7am working and polishing a solution that was unavoidable for the server.

Because it was quite grand a change i chose not to do it for 1.3. But today  i did it. It took me less than 5 minutes and all the work i did last week made lots of sense.

The server is now faster and more responsive than ever. It working super fast and this should clear out all the sporadic lag we had in the past week, where we released 400 accoutns in a matter of 3 days.

Provided the new solution is stable today and tomorrow, we will be releasing more accounts this week. Kaya is healthier and getting better really fast thanks to all the feedback and excitement players have enjoyed .

Beta Craze, 1.2 Beta and scalability.

Its been a while since the last post and a lot happened since.

The Beta launch was a success! 200 accounts were registered within 6 hours. Lots of people could check Kaya, play and watch games.
Beta Launch was crazy. The server has now people active all day long. And it kept me very busy the past two weeks.
The main reason why we opened a limited number of accounts is to see how the whole system behaved as it increased users, in a very reliable way. The feedback we got, both on this subject and on the overall server features and tweaks was amazing and helped us improve things a lot.

Beta 1.1 came with major improvements both client and server side.

As we still polish and improve our ability to scale (that is, to serve more users at the same time) we will be opening more and more accounts until being absolutely open. And Beta 1.1 and 1.2 are focused on that.

Those that didnt get an account on beta will have an opportunity very soon!

Friday, August 3, 2012 1.0.0 Beta Launched!

We JUST released the 200 accounts, they are up for grabs.

We worked VERY intensely the past two weeks to deliver the best experience we could.
We have a long road ahead, but we also traveled a lot! Kaya is looking beautiful, and we have several novelties that make both the chatting and the playing experience unique and new.

I hope everyone can enjoy it. We will be on the server providing live technical support and with the rest of the founders, help out so new users can set up quickly.
