UPDATE at 23.00 CEST on Tuesday the 24th of June: The servers survived this session and we wish to thank all who showed up!
One of the coming days all who successfully logged in between 20.00 – 23.00 CEST will receive a voucher with a 3-day veteran membership by email – we’ll use the email address you signed up with. The winners of the SteelSeries 9H Headsets will be announced on this blog one of the coming days and we’ll notify the winners by email.
A while ago our friends at the Yogscast created and published some hilarious videos, which caused our servers to roll over and die due to a massive influx of new players. In the meantime we have optimized the code and added more hardware, but we really need your help to test how much the servers now can handle.
So in collaboration with the SteelSeries community we invite you to come and do your best to crash our servers on:
Tuesday the 24th of June 2014 at 20.00 CEST / 14.00 EDT.
If you successfully log in during the stress test, we will subsequently reward you with a 3-day Veteran Membership, plus you will participate in a draw for 3 x SteelSeries 9H high-end gaming headsets.
The stress test ends at 23.00 CEST / 17.00 EDT or if we’re not able to get the servers up again after a crash. The servers will be closed down for a few hours Tuesday and re-opened when the stress test starts. If you want to know when the event takes place in your timezone, take a look at the World Clock here.
Winners of the draw will be published on our blog later this week and will be contacted directly by email. Vouchers with the 3-day Veteran Membership will also be sent to the email you registered your Heroes & Generals account with. If you need to change your email-address, please click here.
