The increase of more than 250 thousand % of players caused ‘Goose Goose Duck’ to have a server crash on January 2nd, 2023, so the developers assured that they were making sure that the server would not crash again so that ARMY and Kim Taehyung could continue to enjoy the experience.
We expected a large increase in players but not like this. We're working on increasing capacity as fast as we can and will keep everyone updated. We apologize for the inconvenience, we're all working hard so everyone can play. pic.twitter.com/ZqDpqC8T9L
