Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR MANAGING EVENT DATA IN A MULTI-PLAYER ONLINE GAME
Abstract:
Implementations of the present disclosure are directed to a computer-implemented method, a system, and an article for managing event data in a multi-player online game. The method can include, for example, receiving user input at a plurality of client devices for a multi-player online game that includes a virtual environment; generating user-initiated events for the online game on the client devices based on the user input; distributing any user-initiated events generated on each client device to other client devices from the plurality of client devices; determining at each client device a plurality of derived game events based on the user- initiated events; storing on each client device the user-initiated events and the derived game events in one or more event queues; and determining at each client device a state of the virtual environment over time, according to the stored user-initiated events and the derived game events.
