If you live in Europe and Blade & Soul seems a little faster to you today, you’re probably way too observant. Also, you’re probably not wrong, as NCSoft did a little tinkering under the hood this morning.

Blade & Soul’s EU servers migrated to AWS cloud-based virtual servers this morning, a move that NCSoft hopes will improve service and reliability. In addition to the migration, other, unnamed changes were made to “reduce maintenance times moving forward.”

To read the extensive and voluminous patch notes on this momentous news, hit up the Blade & Soul forums.

  1. Last time I saw someone change to servers that were somehow related to cloud based Technology the servers went down the drain and all in all made matters worse than they already were. I am rather cautious with cloud Servers.
