Needs advice

Hi! Anyone had any experience programming a game-oriented UDP server in PHP using Swoole or ReactPHP? I'm considering trying PHP 8 to really test performance (updating players based on received inputs during a time, simple radius based collision detection).

Also, I would love to know if there is any article/documentation about architecture (code organization, better ways to structure the game logic than a giant switch/elseif, etc.).
