Whereas Helldivers 2 has been fairly profitable on PS5 and PC since its current launch, the experience has not been significantly easy.
Gamers have been affected by widespread login points on prime of typically not receiving rewards when finishing missions.
That is as a result of capability of the servers not being enough to deal with the excessive site visitors that hit the sport on account of its sudden recognition.
Arrowhead Sport Studios CEO Johan Pilestedt took to his personal X (previously Twitter) account to clarify the state of affairs and apologize for the disruptions+.
Pilestedt mentions that three hotfixes have already been deployed to enhance the state of affairs, however the servers’ connection price per minute is restricted. Whereas this has been elevated from 10,000 to twenty,000, it is nonetheless not sufficient to deal with login calls for.
On prime of that, the sport is peaking at 360,000 concurrent customers, which is the restrict the servers can deal with. This has additionally been elevated from 250,000.
Which means gamers will nonetheless get “Failed to hook up with server” errors, however the adjustments made to the speed and peak limits ought to assist in at the very least requiring fewer tries to log in efficiently.
The difficulty of rewards has additionally been mitigated however not solved absolutely, and it will require further server upkeep. Pilestedt mentions that rebooting the sport might assist.
With the apology, he mentions that the staff is working onerous to make it proper. They may now get some sleep and proceed attempting within the morning.
Thanks to your persistence throughout the server upkeep. With it we deployed three “rapid-fixes”
geared toward enhancing the state of affairs with rewards typically not being handed out correctly, login-issues, and
To talk in technical phrases, our providers in addition to our associate providers have a price limiter that denies
connections past a quantity per minute to stop all the system from failing. We managed to
improve the speed restrict from 10,000/min to twenty,000/min and the full capability of concurrent gamers was
elevated from 250,000 whole to 360,000 whole. This was nonetheless nonetheless not sufficient because the participant depend
jumped to 360k after 5 and half minutes.
As such, the problem with login stays. If for any cause you get the “Failed to hook up with server”subject it
implies that the utmost variety of login requests for that specific minute is exceeded and/or that
the servers are full and would require somebody to sign off earlier than permitting new gamers in. As talked about
above, the elevated capability ought to require much less retries to get in.
As for the reward subject, the repair was mitigated however not resolved. And with out further server
upkeep this can nonetheless not work as meant. If you happen to get the problem you possibly can attempt rebooting the sport to
improve the possibilities of it being reset. That is as a result of excessive site visitors on the servers resulting in rewards not
being tracked accurately by our servers.
I do know the development subject is irritating, particularly for newer divers that wish to unlock candy gear.
For now, please as soon as once more settle for our honest apologies for the problems you are going through and relaxation assured,
we’re doing our utmost to make it proper. So as to take action, proper now it’s essential that our staff will get some
sleep and we shall be again at this once more in a number of hours.
