Fast delivery of game events with an optimistic synchronization mechanism in massive multiplayer online games
As smart players often win MMOG sessions by adopting frantic gaming strategies along the game evolution, also the system activities concerned with the distributed support of MMOGs must advance at a very fast pace. Unfortunately, MMOGs’ responsiveness requirements are hardly met when pessimistic approaches are adopted to synchronize the game event exchange activities among game servers. In this paper we show how MMOGs are better supported by optimistic synchronization schemes coupled with mechanisms that exploit the semantics of games. Results obtained from an experimental assessment of our developed scheme demonstrate the validity of our claim.
