server overload

eug1 (NL1)eug1 (NL1) NL1 Posts: 11,434
Some feedback to the developers and engineers of the game. Right now I've got the idea that your servers can't handle the amount of input. There are so many events going on that there wil be some smoke coming of the servers. So my suggestion is to skip a lot of these events. Recently the farmers league was added, recently the dream world was added, recently all day long there is a competition running. And I can continue for some time. But did the servers get the extra amount of capacity? I fear not. Right now that made the game very slow and for a lot of players almost impossible to play. (See the number of reports in other threats).
So mu suggestion is to delete all that extra stuff, at least for some time. Than make an inquirie among the players what they really want in this game. And let that be the base of the game. Not just some (sometimes silly) ideas made by a lone developer.

    I think all events are not so drastic to the servers. But all animation when players do harvesting is a killing thing to the systems. And there is already an option in the settings for showing or not animation. But in either way its selected or not all anmation is still there  :( Why not just hide all drops animation when animation option is not selected.

    Too many events is too much. I don´t live for playing and impossible to participate in all events which are going on, without playing day and night like mad. And if there is too much on the same time what i must to do, it makes me nervous and I loose wish to play. I don´ t think that getting rid of players is the idea of game or events...

    Find what you're comfortable with doing. So what if you happen to miss an event or two. As you know they do come around often. So you will get a chance at them if & when you have the time. ;)

    The game is running really slow, unable to collect or do anything.
    Happy Farming.

    Beeing kicked out 6 times in less than 15 minutes with always the same message: Connection with the server interupted. Not very handy in a WF mission

    Chat is messed up... only shows the word name all the way down w/ green lights.  We don't even have that many in our coop.  Reloading did not help.  When I click on the CC tent, nothing pops up to check status at all.  My fishing region did not repopulate the fishing pool after I emptied it.  I've had to log in and out a few times... so much mess today!

    i am not really sure how the whole internet thing works. but i know i am now paying a extra 10 dollars a month to my internet provider to get i think 6 MB of bandwidth or what ever it is called.  because when i was on the phone with them they were watching what the game was taking. they told me that when i stated the game or went to another page it was pushing the limits of i think the 5MB is what i was at. that is why the graphics were off and why it was not working right. if i was just on the page not doing much it only took about 1 MB or less of internet to work. so when it is switching pages or using repte harvester it is using more internet then even netflix or hulu take at one time. so if your internet is on a plan lower then 6MB of download speed i think. this game will not always work and the graphics will mess up. and i am sure now with the Chinese event it is worse.

    There are now 10 things(events) on the parking lot and 4 pop ups. That is tomuch info for the older computers,specialy with the droppings for the WWC,the weekevent and the info for the C-C. However the newest computers have a slower game also. That Chat and sometimes not beeing in a coop and the C-C tent are bugs. Sometimes reloading a few times will help. But the speed is completly gone. And adding the Dream Farm and Temporary island info makes it only worse

    Being an amateur IT wannabe nerd I use an AD Blocker (uBlock Origin) for bandwidth and safety reasons. As I type this I have 8 trackers being blocked on this chat alone and 51 trackers being blocked on the game. I have seen numbers of 400+ trackers in the game sometimes and I am sure that this is one of the causes of server overload. My question is, how safe if BFG when it comes to privacy and who are they selling the info to?
