CivWiki Monday Newsletter for June 6, 2022

Good Monday Morning from New England. Hopefully everyone is having a great launch, whichever server you’re playing. And if you’re not playing CivMC, hope you’re having fun playing nevertheless.

Something new this week: since now there’s so much news, only the ones noted with a plus sign (+) are noted to be the current events present on the front page of the Wiki. All other current events are just noted here for their notoreity or otherwise.

Prelaunch Hype

“Houston, We’re a Go for Launch”(+)

  • The launch saw nearly 450 players attempting to join, making it one of the largest Civ server launches on record. That number stayed for the weekend, with peak hours reaching above 300 on the server.
  • The first day saw one of the smoothest Civ server launches with the server running near-perfectly despite the player load, causing scarce interruption over launch weekend.
  • Continuous technical support was made throughout the weekend to increase the number of players on the server and fix a few errant bugs in production.

The Meme Queue

One large complaint on launch was the server’s queue; the high demand during the launch weekend and peak hours saw long queues reaching over 100, the admins have confirmed they are working on upgrading the server and introducing sharding to increase the overall server population.(+)

As a result of many people standing around in queue, many people made memes while waiting:

Today’s featured image is Shardore Tower, the Order’s headquarters.

The Order of St. Marcus was a builder’s organization active throughout CivClassic that sought to create high-quality builds across the server. The Order was started in February 2018 by Gobblin and Maester Logic_Man in Mount Augusta in honor of fellow retired Maester Marcus_Flaminius. Through the Journey of the Placed Block,, the organization encouraged players to improve the looks of towns and cities across CivClassic, at a time when many buildings lacked flair. With build competitions and a point system, they called on other builders to create beautiful buildings on the server, from lowly houses to large government buildings, rail stations, libraries and more. Eleven nations on the server, most notably Gabon, Varkonia, and the Commonwealth contained numerous builds which contributed to the Order’s mission.
