The beleaguered, battle-worn servers used by developer Arrowhead Game Studios withstood their fiercest assault yet, with some 800,000 rabid Helldivers 2 players all clamoring to get their Democratic fix at the same time . This glorious victory for Super Earth, in which “the servers handled all Helldivers 2 players this weekend without issue,” marks a major shift in the ongoing intergalactic war effort.
CEO Johan Pilestedt announced yesterday, Sunday February 25, a stunning reversal of the situation, a day of celebration that will long remain in our collective memories. Pilestedt announced that Arrowhead would soon I expect the servers to reach capacityrecently raised to a limit of 800,000 concurrent users (CCU) for the occasion (in addition to adding the automatic AFK kick), warning “there may be slight queues to enter at peak” , and reflecting on the madness of the situation.
Just 12 hours later, Arrowhead’s CEO declared sudden and complete victory, proclaiming that the game’s freshly hardened servers had held for the first time. Now, Pilestedt mused, it would finally be time to “focus on improvements and return to our original plan.”
Since launch, Helldivers 2 servers have been completely strained, mainly due to the day-and-date launch decision on PC and PS5. While PlayStation’s numbers are harder to determine, on Steam during the game’s opening weekend some 120,000 people took up arms for Super Earth simultaneously, showing how far the game has come in just a few weeks only. Hopefully Pilestedt’s proclamation is not premature, but for now it seems we can all happily do our part to spread managed democracy across the galaxy, even to its farthest stars.
