We are seeing some suspicious spikes in cpu load on the servers. They seem to be connected to the “super-lag” (10 seconds or more).
It’s early in the investigation, but there seems to be correlation with how many players are on the server, so the issues jump between servers, as players move between them.
I myself played a full 60-year game on de-2 yesterday without any super-lag at all, possibly because no other players showed up.
It would be helpful right now if everyone reported in their super-lag experience: start time and length for super-lag, which server and number of people on that server (when you started). Playing a long game without any super-lag should also be reported, to help us narrow down when it happens and when it doesn’t.
When reporting time, make sure to include your time zone.
With your help we will fix this quickly, thanks.
