    Sounds like the village fair has a memory leak which needs to be plugged.

    Patterns:  Starts out a little slow but acceptable, then gets so click-wait-click-wait that it is unplayable, Happens when a challenge is going. Other co-op members report the same. Some are thinking about quitting--game just isn't fun this way. New village is way too complex to begin with. We have people who only can play once a week or every few days and they are jumping in and starting a challenge without knowing the consequences, I think.

    pattern:  after half an hour things start to get slower ingame when i click on market places to get ride of the !! above its immidiate it seems can be wrong about that1 but to me it seems that way ..and now whit the VF going on it is almost impossible once people start to harvest during a challenge and when the %% counter goes up by1 it is even worse once the challange is over things do get alot better ... but not how its supposed to be offcourse youre so used to really slow that slow seems fast but it actually is stil the usual 

    i do use chrome offcourse in any other browser the game is impossible 
    in firefox it takes like 5 minutes to even load grafics when you start up the game 
    till a wile ago i was able to play all day whitout refreshing once i do not really know the time when this started but it was after an update

    Seems we went through something similar with the Hill Challenge when it started. Some do not learn from past mistakes

    Why should we be surprised that something has gone wrong with a new event.  It happens every time something new is added and they always seem to start it on a Friday so we have to cope over the weekend until they come back on the Monday.  It is time GGS got their act together and made sure all problems were sorted before rolling it out and not roll it out at the weekend when nothing can get sorted.

    Thought it was just me.  Lag time is horrendous after the start of the Village Fair. Need to screen refresh about every 10-15 minutes. Cleared cache; no impact. GGS devs strike again!
  • To the question of loading ranking list/challenge list.  Yes, I have seen an improvement in this part of game loading.  When event first started only got a white box after update i can see ranking and can load a challenge for coop in a few seconds, ty!  Rest of game slows after 20 minutes of playing.  Appreciate all you are doing to help us enjoy the game more.

  • Google chrome has a lot of lag. more now with village fair.

    refreshing page helps, clearing cache etc. lower quality in settings and turn off animations also helps.

    microsoft edge i find is the best browser to use, but the chat hardly works at all or is extremely slow. also when deep sea fishing on edge  you must drag and drop items if you use hold shift and click the game boots you out !

    Hi there! This thread is about lag issues, if you have some missing items please contact our support team who can check the issue for you. You can contact the support team via the in-game 'support' button. This can be found in the top right of the screen in the settings menu. Thanks and hope your issue is resolved!
    Are there any plans to make this game a stand alone game ?

    most games now are and run independently and use steam for the internet !

    Seems like no internet browser can handle the amount of information or power required to run this game.

    Just my thoughts, not sure how hard this would be to do as i am no expert on this matter.

    There are major games out there like call of duty etc that don`t have lag issues because they do not run through browsers

    10Gb ram, 100/10 net, usually get what i pay for :smile: Latest firefox & flash, Win 7

    While running 30 minute challenges after fresh start, lag seems to begin 5-10 minutes into challenge. And when challenge ends game speeds up almost back to normal. There does not seem to be any noticeable changes in memory or cpu usage.

  • It's so bad I can't even get Chrome to load the game now and had to switch to Edge.

    Het is beslist noodzakelijk de vertragingen aan te pakken. Steeds meer leden van onze coop stoppen ermee omdat het zo niet meer te doen is.

    Hi all! Thanks for your reports, we're taking a look through them all to see what else we can do. No news about any solutions for the time being but appreciate all the info you've dropped here for us!

    I have just 4GB RAM. Download and upload speed so low that I feel shy to reveal here.

    Some of speeds cited above are so high that I feel embarrassed about mine.  :(

    Patterns: lag seems to happen after about 20 minutes, then need to refresh the game. This problem started occurring around the time of the Village Fair update/introduction. (Is there a possible memory leak or object leak in the newer code?)

    Patterns: It happens more when we are doing the  Village Fair.  It happens a little more in the evening, but mostly when the Fair in an active mission.  It gets so slow that it takes at least a second after the mouse click to respond.  If I refresh the browser, it will speed up again for about 15 min.

    I'm just pulling this thought out of a hat because I'm no programmer, but...

    You added a new animated decoration into the game with the update and the lag started with that update.
    Perhaps there may be something corrupt in the decorations code that is making the game lag. 
    I know that no one had won it right away, but you did add it to the deco tower.

    Good luck on making an end to all this lag, I'm sure you are doing the best you can.

    It is because of the Village League. Many posts about it throughout the forum. GG has not been able to fix it yet.

    Lag absolutely terrible since last night. Worse than when the VF was running.
