So I have discovered something that I feel may be detrimental to server stability in the future. In game there is a Logout button in the Menu players can use to log their character out of the game, however if this button is not used the character is maintained in the game permanently. This means that if somebody were out farming in an area that requires a group and were to need to leave and simply close the browser, they would return to having been killed by whatever random mob happened to walk onto their square(or player depending on if PvP is able). I found this because I was sitting logged in on a square and due to my daughter wanting to play on the pc simply closed the browser. When I opened the game latter I found I had been killed by a passing mob as my character was still in the game the whole time I had thought I was logged out. For me this is an issue as it means I am not stuck in a death loop I cannot get out of and am not allowed to log on my other char as I get the message "This account already has a character logged on". I think it would be a good idea to implement a timeout or some other form of checking if the browser is still open or not and logging the player char out. Imagine what it would look like if there were even 20 players logged in at all times all over the world. Sure some of them would survive no problem, but all the activity being logged for battles being fought and the player doesn't even have his browser open would be a pretty big strain on any server I would imagine.
