Single Server MMORPG: Introduction
This post is the first of the Single Server MMORPG server series.
Single Server MMORPG server uses one logically server instead of using multiple separate sharded servers.
It has interesting challenges for software engineers. And unfortunately, there is too little public material compared to other distributed systems.
Most of the content will have engineering tools and decision-making. As for the game design, I will only mention the minimum necessary.
I hope this helps the game industry and developers.
