Maybe it's not Jagex's fault, maybe it's the whole internet messing up lately?

Have Jagex added lag to slow down XP gains - nothing would surprise me!!


Of course it wouldn't surprise you, you're on the lookout for something to complain about and someone to blame.

Actually, If you follow the threads I respond to I very rarely criticise Jagex, given in the main they do a good job in trying circumstances whereby they cannot please everyone. On this occaision I found it very surprising to be working fine up to 1pm & then 'Bang' the infamous 2 step start stop walking routine.

Jagex deliberately lagging their game? That is the dumbest [bleep]ing idea I've ever heard.

I think they should start doing random server restarts 1-2 per day, this would help with the bots, and the lag. Everyone know that leaving a computer on for a long time degrades performance, servers are the same.

Haven't lagged at all today. Though, I am in F2P so less people.

Why would Jagex go out of their way to make the community mad? They already have such bad public image that doing something like this would ruin the business. It's just crappy servers, people.

I don't buy it. The amount of people playing is nothing out of the ordinary and they've been able to handle twice as much without a single lag spike... "unfortunate" my ass...

To think they deliberately tried to ruin the gaming experience for their customers may be the stupidest thing i've ever heard...



By reducing excess operating costs, they are not trying to ruin the game for anyone. They are simply reducing excess costs. Its like buying a semi truck to haul around a canoe. If you could fit the product onto a smaller container without effecting the quality, then why not? There is no need to pay for a physical server to house virtual servers with a max player count 2000 players when they top out at 1200-1500 people.

As to double exp weekend and bot-watch, I think they are using it to collect data. I think they are trying to find out how long player are willing to play at a time and how their play style changes over long periods of time, then they will use this data to enhance their detection algorithms. Logically, a normal human can not keep a high rate of activity for 20 hours straight. Eventually, they will start to slow down, mess up clicking, etc. A bot would keep on doing the same rate and programmatically misclick between a certain time range for many hours.


I work in Server Infrastructure and I understand what you are saying, but it is my understanding that Jagex have been using virtuals for quite a while now. I don't think the lag is related to the server load, as it seems to be world independent, ie, logging onto the less popular worlds seems to still cause the lag. Also, I have no idea what kind of hardware Jagex is running, but for them to cut cost that would cause poor performance with their max incoming connections (2000), I think would be a poor move. Hard to retain players when the experience is bad....

I just logged on to world 25 and I'm not lagging at all, it did however take me a few minutes to finally log in from the lobby. :P.
I'm doing Artisan's so maybe I just don't notice it. Hehe.

on a related note I am convinced that TIF has deliberate lag because its taking a long time for pages to load today

High ping and loging problem will make this event 'unable to play weekend' instead of 'crazy xp gains weekend'. I'm not going to play until jagex will fix it, Playing atm is more frustrating than fun.
