I'm curious about the necessary hardware and software requirements to support a strong MMORPG. For example, what kind of requirement (both hardware and software) would I need if I were to build a system that can incorporate million requests at the same time and avoid lags? How can I keep the game from glitching by processing the requests efficiently?
I understand it depends on proper programming and database structure. Assuming there is 1 table that will have 2 rows updated for every request and there are a million requests, what kind of system and database would I need to do that flawlessly without lags? What amount of time would it take to process all those requests?
Just wondering what I should expect if I'm going to develop a MMORPG.
I would really like to get your feedback/response on this.
