    Lag is back :(

    Well, they promised for years, kept on promising, kept on promising. Then, about the end of 2019, the lag went lower and around then went really low. I was having 60-90 second wait times prior, then down to 20-30 seconds then, wow down to 2-5 seconds. AMAZING!. But in mid January, it went up to 10-20 seconds and the last week or so 40 seconds and rising.

    Ok, us oldtimers know the reason the lag was put in way back in was a sort of auditing as there was some major cheating. Why is it back? Perhaps same thing. So... how to deal with it.
    - find out who is using the cheat and throw them out deleting their hood (trust me, I've been working on mine for almost 8 years and I do not want my hood erased so I do NOT cheat)
    - live with the cheaters
    - create an environment where you can track the cheaters with this lag and have it go on every 10th time (a cheat check of sorts). So, I have 2 second lags 9 out of 10 times and then a longer 40-60 second lag when you audit me (and find nothing). Throw the cheaters out then. No mulligans, no mercy.

    Do SOMETHING! We know you had it low. RETURN the lag to low!!!

    Same here. Switching accounts is brutal. Plus, getting a lot of errors. Trying to clear a goal throws up an error. Trying to get into the Syndicate Base throws up an error with a quit, so the game needs to be restarted. Sent in a few tickets already. Fed up. Again.

    Things are starting to seem a bit laggy for me too. Nowhere near as bad as it once was, but it used to happen way too often that my game would lag on epic bosses after tapping ďfight onĒ and thatís starting to happen again. The button doesnít change to indicate it has been tapped the way other buttons normally do. So Iíll tap it again thinking my device didnít sense the tap. But if that second tap happens to be even a hair too close to where the 15 gold option is going to appear on the fight screen, somehow that gold spending tap registers while the game appeared to be lagging. When things appear to catch up I am suddenly at the fight screen and have already spent 15 gold to hit a boss that I can farm all week for free if I want, and canít even be bothered. Frustrating and annoying to piss away resources like that so unnecessarily. I havenít kept track but I wouldnít be surprised if that lag has cost me a vault of gold over the years. Ridiculous.

    Hey Gree, get the hint? Go back to your build the first week of January and leave it alone or make changes that work. Thanks.

    I can’t tell if it’s freezing or lagging on the menus now but it’s one of the two. If it’s lag then just like before the delay is longer than it takes to just restart the game, so that’s what I do after it’s obvious something is wrong.

    Yes the Spinning Wheel of death has returned. I close and restart now rather than watch it.
    Too bad Gree sold the game to a company as incompetent as themselves.

    What I meant was I often do not even have a “spinning wheel of death”. It’s just nothing. Everything stops.

    And it’s happening a lot. To the point I sometimes have to reload the game several times to even complete a simple “collect all”... after I clear ten thousand pop ups first.

    I have 3 accounts. Lag is not currently much of an issue on accounts 1 and 3, but for some reason account number 2 still has lag problems. If I load the game and close the pop ups then hit ‘collect all’ it freezes up. I don’t know how long it lags because I am not patient enough to find out. I just restart the game since thankfully that’s not a minutes-long load anymore.

    Account 2 also has awful lag in the syndicate base. On accounts 1 and 3 I get the loading circle for any action I do but it spins once or just past once and the load is complete. On account 2 it just spins and spins if I don’t restart the game.

    Account 2 is currently my syndicate leader, if that has any relevance.

    The lag is gone again. Are they just toying with us? Did they remove the lag by accident? Will it be reintroduced with the next data upgrade?
