Wooo, that crazy E3 time is now almost over and it's with great pleasure that I'm finally able to catch up on my sleep. I know some of you guys like these numbers so you'll find a few stats about this long week inside this news. I've also got my camcorder back, so if you want to see a better resolution version of any of Shann's videos, let me know in the comments of this news.
Needless to say that this 10 days period between May 12 and 22 has seen all the previous records of this site beaten. The main server itself has quite nicely handled the load, but there first download mirror was saturated during the first few days. The problem was resolved by adding 2 new servers to the download pool.
A few numbers for this 10 days period :
- Pages : 2453963 (official xiti.com)
- Visits : 371751 (official xiti.com)
- Unique visitors : 208668 (official xiti.com)
- Max simultaneous visitors : 723
- Max cumulated bandwith an all download servers and bittorrent : 120 mbits
- Number of news : 130
- Number of videos : 179
- Videos size : 4.3 GB
- Number of galleries : 144
- Number of images : 1248
- Downloads : More than 400000
I'm very happy with these numbers of course :)
Hopefully I'll be able to get more interesting exclusive content in the future. We are contacting a few developers and hope we'll be able to do a few videos with them. I'm also working on a new version of xboxyde.com, and also a new site I'll announce in a few weeks.
and then letting you use those weapons against users who don't have them has always seemed wrong to me (1 Hour ago)
@MikeManiac61: I don't mind the unlock rate too much (although there are a few exceptions in BF1) since they frontload the best weapons a lot of the time. But locking good weapons behind DLC (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: Having the same sentiments. It's reminding me of Battlefront 2 and their system where you have to grind so much for an unlock. (1 Hour ago)
Speaking of lootboxes.. OW League is on (London Spitfire vs. LA Valiant) [url] (3 Hours ago)
Their pay-DLC model produces more content than free-DLC models ever will.. and quality content. I just hate how they pay-gate weapons. That's pay to win. (3 Hours ago)
I wonder if the next Battlefield game will have premium/expansions. I have a feeling it won't. Mixed feelings on that generally. (3 Hours ago)
battlefield apocalypse is coming, give it 2 me. (3 Hours ago)
