Firstly, our TC: Nova and Liberator performance will improve due to much faster hardware. This may not be noticeable at first, however in the long run it will make a difference. Rubber-banding should be decreased substantially. This will also make sure Liberator can stay up for much longer periods of time and will also give us a chance to accommodate a lot more players (This however might require upgrading the line to 1Gbps dedicated).
Secondly, many people have contacted us regarding the frequent periods of lag and even cut outs of our Forum and other SWGEmu websites. We hope that with this upgrade and the reduction of Liberator and TC: Nova downtimes, these forum and website issues will be reduced to a minimum.
This is scheduled to happen on Monday, February 14, 2011. We plan to start the transfer around 9AM Eastern.
TC:Nova and Liberator will experience a short period of downtime (24 hours max). The downtime will allow us to move TC: Nova and Liberator to the new machine and have it tested and ready.
