The lag in SnGs when its bad is 1000 times worse than ring games. I haven’t experienced any significantly bad lag in MTTs either but I dont play them much to compare.
The RP website and tables as a whole operate fairly smoothly over 80% of the time. For less than 20% of the time on RP the lag issues are beyond bearable.
- SnG table lag
- SnG Lobby Chat isn’t working properly
- RP webpages loading/refreshing extremely slowly
Recently a few times whilst playing 2 SnG tables simultaneously the lag has been so bad that its been completely unplayable. The worst experience was a while ago when both tables for over 25 minutes experienced periods periods of lag for 30 seconds to over a minute where the table would just freeze & do nothing. Player were continuously sitting out, running the clock out. Eventually before it got to completely unplayable & frozen I asked others if they were experiencing lag. Four players responded yes very bad, one player said it was the worst they had ever seen.
When it got to the point of freezing on & off for over 25 mins I had to agree. This was the worst I had ever seen. I can happily play 2 ring games for hours simultaneously with minimal lag. Why are the SnGs so bad at times?
Often they run reasonably for decent periods of time.
I’ve never really used the SnG Lobby chat before but it seems to be very hit & miss miss miss. Players Chat just doesnt show up at all for long periods of time. CTRL-R seem to fix the problem temporarily.
Table Chat works 98% perfect. Why is the Lobby Chat so bad?
In the past month or more RP web pages can take 15-30 seconds or minutes to refresh on occasions. When working properly they load in a few seconds or more. My internet is working fine. I can open a new web browser & google search whatever in a few seconds & load new web pages in a few seconds.

I’m considering using a different browser. A friend suggested… i cant remember. I’m using Chrome. This Laptop is an over 10 year old fossil that needs to be sacrificed in a volcano, but it does the job ok most of the time.
