The new 5.3 Olympia update features an entirely new network engine, which should greatly improve game fluidity, specially in large fights and to prevent lag spikes. I believe this has been a very needed update for long and shall work as a stepping stone for the next updates in order to make Helbreath fun and smooth. It's specially useful to know whether we should keep this engine or revert back to the old engine to avoid spending unnecessary time with the new engine if it doesn't work out. However, I do believe this new engine is superior in nearly every way, so the likelihood of reverting back to the old engine is unlikely.
Note however that since there was a very large amount of code modified and rewritten, there may be bugs and even crashes, but I believe this should be well worth it in the long run. We will address these bugs and crashes as soon as (in-)humanly possible.
Feedback is important, so I urge all players to fill out the network poll located here and also in-game by typing "/netpoll".

Any additional feedback or comments on this matter can be posted here.


Known bugs (shall be fixed very soon):
sometimes you can't go on a teleport (to change map)
guild names not showing up properly when mousing over player
guild tps not working
guild administration not working
Trading not working
[FIXED] sending mail is crashing server
/checkrep, /pf not working
~ chat occasionally not working for some people
sometimes dropping items isn't working...?
shows level up dialog, but no stats to put (reported by Aereon and MacBeth)
Mail receive notification doesn't show the correct sender name

"Activated Merien shield now disables recalling (includes recall scrolls) and guild teleport"

Not logging out? That was the major issue. Or well, that's what most Merien Shield abusers went with, and it shouldn't be possible either.

Good to see the network update finally here.
