CCP Veritas has been investigating CPU usage for Tranquility and has some great info to share. Read all about CPU utilization here.

Yay for tech-****. I don't understand most of it but like to pretend I do! Wink

Second graph returns a 404 error btw. Is the green line the number of Drakes killed, and the blue spikes CPU usage?

Thanks a lot for the dev blog! Smile

Blue is the raw data, green is a trendline.

probably all those drake pilots come from the fact that they'd been trained on them earlier?! Caldari are the most populated race in eve..

Some years ago, most of those drakes would have been rifters, newbies and alts alike. Running around mad to tackle and swarm.

Maybe it is time to ask Game Design whether this perception voiced in the QEN of pilot effectiveness being two years needs reconsideration, and reflection.

In an age of bubbles and few second probing, the reigning perception is of uselessness until you can fly a drake. And that's not just a case for math, but also one of Game Design.


It's a Marketing topic as well.

I'm a little confused on how the number of drakes kill in null-sec is represented as a percentage. Percentage of what? All ships killed? Percentage of drakes in existence?

Would be interesting to see an absolute number of drakes and of all ships...

Atlas can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it's a percentage of nullsec ships killed.

You may wish to skim the charts in the recent QEN.

Yes, percentage of total number of ships killed in nullsec PvP.

Am i the only one to notice that CCP's biggest accomplishment with reducing server load was banning macros?
It's nonsense that you are making a horde of devs working on a few percent of load reduction when you could accomplish so much with that.

Kill a drake, save a kitten. Nice graphs.

Question I have is did the rise in drake deaths come from the wtfbbq alpha damage of projectiles allowing fleets the ability to kill drakes more easily or simply a dramatic increase in the number of drakes flown? The graph is only showing how many drakes died, too many variables.

Does that spike happen to coincide with Fanfest? I know that sounds odd, but FF started on October 1st in 2009.

This CPU spike was "TRANQUILITY HOTFIX v.6.14.101786_1". This code was deployed 29 September 2009 but reverted 30 September 2009 for further analysis. It was a problem with a memory allocation change in the Stackless Python interpreter.

Yes, you are, and the arrow on the graph pointing to "Unholy Rage" is purely coincidental.

I remember the unholy rage blog also pointed out the server load drop, and surprise at how large it was. It was assumed to be because macros run continuously, where players, even when they stay logged in, take breaks.

There has been many threads recently talking about the rise of a new set of macro users, trial accounts running courier missions for RMT, macro ratters in null sec just to make isk for alliances, etc. If and when unholy rage II hits, the server load may well drop well below all previous historic levels.

CCP; There is a unholy rage II, right? Many of us true players would like it to be a weekly, if not daily event.

I would say a monthy/bi-annual event tbh, since it's known that just reporting suspicious people isn't really enough to warrant a ban, even if said people has a name like happiboy0008.
