If you read the forums / play on mobile you may know Super Mechs had been featured on both Google Play store and iOS App Store. We expected out traffic to rise to a certain level and added some servers to handle the load, but what we DIDN’T expect is THIS amount of traffic. Our servers where completely overwhelmed and every day we had to add more servers to handle the influx of new users.
Because of the increased traffic, Super Mechs even started to appear on several Top Charts in many countries which led to even more players discovering and downloading the game.
This resulted in our servers having lags and sometimes crashes and the technical team pretty much dropped everything since last Thursday except handling this (we’re a small team here so you can imagine the stress).
The good news is that we deployed updates yesterday (Android and Web) and today (iOS) that we believe fixed most of the issues, and we optimized the way the servers balance the traffic. The bottom line is that we expect that starting today the experience will be way better for all players.
Have we fixed everything? No. Will we have to do some more servers restart? Probably. But you should now expect a much smoother performance on all platforms.
