At PyCon 2006 we gave a talk about how Stackless Python was being used to power EVE Online, a MMORPG developed and run by CCP Games in Iceland. Three years on, we report on how we redesigned the system's internals using a new IO framework called StacklessIO and how it helped solve network latency issues and improve the game's performance and scaling.
