The Events Handler is an Extend feature designed to streamline the process of executing custom logic in response to specific events within AccelByte Gaming Services (AGS). By leveraging this capability, game developers can effortlessly enhance gameplay experiences and eliminate the need for frequent game client updates and execute server authoritative action.
Seamless Custom Logic Execution: With the Events Handler, game developers gain the ability to execute custom logic based on predetermined events occurring within the backend system. By offloading this responsibility to the backend, developers can focus on crafting engaging gameplay mechanics without burdening the game client. This approach enhances overall performance and improves the gaming experience.
Elimination of Game Client Updates: Implementing custom logic changes traditionally required updating the game client, resulting in time-consuming development cycles and potential disruptions for players. However, by utilizing the Events Handler, developers can introduce custom logic modifications directly within the backend system. This eliminates the need for game client updates, allowing for agile and efficient development processes.
