It's no half-godly secret that Stardock and Gas Powered Games' Demigod has been having connectivity issues - it's immense success is partly to blame.
Stardock boss Brad Wardell feels "confident" that next week will reach a critical phase, it's been their "number-one priority" to fix. Even the art team was drafted in to help on NAT speeds.
"...I feel confident that this next week is going to be the turning point for those people who have had connectivity difficulties PLUS the whole range of stat stuff, pantheon stuff, etc. will all come into line as well because," blogged Wardell (aka Frogboy) on Impulse, "as I've said elsewhere, because the connectivity thing was our #1 priority, everyone, including the people who would resolve favor items and favor points and accurate win/loss stuff have been pulled onto this."
"Heck, this past week, I had the ART team from Elemental working on doing benchmarks for speeding up NAT," he added.
For those in the dark, Demigod is a competitive online real-time strategy game with role playing elements for your avatar. Players don't control troops directly but instead direct their Demigod to launch assaults, and can then decide whether to invest in themselves or the army.
Full blown marketing campaigns for the game are on hold for now until Stardock finish off the server troubles. Anyone who has bought at retail or digital copy of Demigod before May 10th will also get a coupon from Stardock to buy another copy at 50% off for a limited time.
