“The 1.3.1 Update for the Starhawk Public BETA was deployed during the server maintenance today, March 12th at 2pm Central time and included the following modification:
- Temporarily reduced MAX player limit from 32 to 30.
Temporary MAX Player Change:
We have been tracking some server instability related to the newly released 32-player support and increased number of new players playing the 1.3 BETA Update. As a result, we’ve released the 1.3.1 update today that*TEMPORARILY* pulls the max player cap down to 30.
As we were investigating the server instability we discovered some unsavory conditions that occured right around the 32 player mark — and, oddly enough, the 33 player mark — which is *NOT* expected.
The team here at LightBox Interactive is working diligently to make sure your Starhawk BETA experience is as good as possible and we’ll keep you all posted on our findings in the coming days. As always, please let us know if you are still seeing issues — specifically if you guys are noticing a stability improvement on the 30-player servers!”
