"Feral Heart" game administrators open and close registration at random to control server loads and optimize their performance without inconveniencing current players. This policy began as early as 2012.
Since a very small staff operates the game, the administrators only increase the game's online population as the necessary hardware becomes available. Random registration ensures that more dedicated players access the game's limited available space while maintaining consistent performance levels for registered users.
Staff does not accept requests from users for exceptions to its registration policy. Those interested in registering must wait until registration opens at random. This occurs several times each week, at which time registration is open for two hours at a time.
