Lag on MTGO

  • #1
    since i joined this wonderful out of control hobby Ive been noticing alot of lag on the game. Meaning i will be in the middle of a game and then all of a sudden the game freezes. I used to wait, but when i waited I found that it could take up to 5-10 minutes before something happened. Ive found clicking insessently on the screen usually remedies this problem for me (if its on my end) but I was wondering what all of the other players do when this happens.

    Just wait it out, thats what I do. It probably has something to do with all the lag caused by all the people on the server. Let alone people signed in with bad connection rates to the server could lag it as well. Just dont concede hehe:D. Good luck to ya!

    Make sure that other games and services that use considerables bandwidth (MMOs, automatic downloaders, distributed file downloading [like the updaters for MMOs like to use], etc...) are either not active, throttled to mitigate lag, or closed. This can ease lag issues from your end even on high-end connections.

    I get lag with commercial Verizon FiOS service when I leave everything downloading and uploading on a full tilt.

    Was Necropotence the gateway drug of choice here?

    Yes. A thousand times yes. They lured me in with Ivory Tower and Zuran Orb, and I kept telling myself "I can quit whenever I want...just look at that untapped disk". That was ten years ago man.....

    Turn off all your other programs that could be sucking up your computer's resources.

    MTGO has some issues with memory leaks, so it's not worth running much else unless you know your PC/internet connection can handle it.

    i.e. the last draft I did I left my d/ls on and missed half of pack two due to lag and ended up having to scrape together a pile and eke out a round one win on the back of some crappy fatties and my opponents mistakes.

    God I miss v2.5 =|

    today's lag issues likely are the result of the Pre-Release that is currently going on.
