In the recent days some of the players of Alchemy Toys have noticed that the DApp UI has sometimes had trouble to update the information. While we went thorough careful planning of the infrastructure and its scalability before launching the game back in May, nothing beats real-time real-life pressure of millions of requests. We have collected countless learnings and data.
This week the amount of players and their engagement in Alchemy Toys has literally sky-rocketed. We estimate that at several occasions GAT Network has been responsible for up to 2%+ of all transactions data on the Binance Smart Chain.
This does, of course, put gigantic pressure on all the systems. This pressure uncovers hidden inefficiencies and allows us to optimize the systems. We have already advanced a lot in the recent days and hours, but we are not done yet. Our job is to ensure flawless gaming and support growth far beyond the current levels.
These learnings came at a cost. Unfortunately some players have experienced up to 1-2 hours of sync problems – something we deeply regret. 🙁
