After some brainstorming sessions and discussions it’s been officially decided by the Relay For Life of Second Life organisers that Relay Weekend will be moved a month earlier going forward.
The 2019 season will last for 16 weeks and it will be very different compared with previous years. The Relay For Life of Second Life 2019 season will now kick off at 10am SLT on Saturday 16th February 2019 and the annual Relay Weekend will be on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June 2019.
This is the first time in Relay For Life of Second Life history that the event will be held in June instead of July. The economic metrics say that having the relay season earlier means more residents will be active and will be logged in.
Both Relay Weekend and the Second Life birthday will now take place in June which means it’s going to be a rather busy month.
On Friday 7th September High Fidelity reached a new record of 356 avatars during a load test yesterday afternoon. The previous record was 256 avatars which was set just recently. These load tests are done on a monthly basis apparently to reach the long-term goal of seeing One Billion in VR.
THANK YOU to everyone who joined our Load Test this afternoon. 356 avatars! A new record. FYI: We’re moving the next load test to a Saturday so more users can join! Learn more and register here 👉 https://t.co/3G16mqpShu#VR
