    • Make sure your own internet connection is not the problem (switch off downloads, if possible reboot your router, if using wireless, try wired, etc)
    • Make sure you are not using other flash related apps (like flash games/youtube etc) in the same browser
    • Clear your browser history, take a look at my guide to make sure you actually clear all cookies/cache: How to clear cookies
    • Clear your flash cache, while TSO doesn't use much it can be corrupted. How to clear flash cache
    • Try to increase the amount TSO can use, shouldn't matter but doesn't hurt to try anyway How to increase flash storage
    • Make sure you have the latest flash version installed. Check your flash player version for Internet Explorer and Firefox, when using Chrome just make sure you have the latest Chrome version installed (Chrome is very good in ensuring this ).
    • Try another browser. (While I'm a big fan on Firefox, lately it's acting up for me (not only for tso))
    I have done all of that and I will admit it did help for about 90 minutes then it was business as usual

    Tonight it took me 5 attempts to send a sav out to look for advenures. 4 out of the 5 attempts I had the pop up telling me he had gone on his merry way only for 5 minutes later I find him in the tavern quaffing with the rest of the specialists. I think they are trying to come up with a plan to oust the generals and don't want to be disturbed.

    Edit.

    This is me attempting build build a wheat field. I placed one and then my build queue disappeared and all build options were greyed out. It hung like thise for about 5 minutes

    The problem is the guild house. I don't know why, but it causes an insane amount of lag. Demolish it and you'll have a nearly lag-less game (except peak hours). Unfortunately, that may not be possible as a guild leader.

    I'm also having similar issues as described in this thread (though not as extreme) and it may be related to building the guild house. I'll try to investigate further.

    I have a guild house and experience no lag except when expected (start of events, when free things are given out) other than that I have been pretty much lag free for a long time.

    It took 45 minutes to login tonight with just progress bars slowly progressing despite a couple of refresh attempts. When I finally did get in I had random sets of buffs vanishing...

    Gytha, I have also been experiencing:
    - geos sent out and the deposits only appearing after refresh or visit friend's island
    - have to send explorers out more than once before they actually go
    - buffs not always being applied
    - hourglass for ages on generals and trade

    Especially since the most recent maintenance. I'll try clearing the cache...

    Generally I don't speak out for this game and try my worst to defend BB (simply because there have not been any reason to), however I now feel I have no choice.
    There have been no bugs here since the removal of Halloween event.
    All i did after the event was clear browser.
    About the update your flash suggestion: use with caution. I've updated flash 3 times this year and every time i've regretted it cause game started crashing. Once i even went back to previous version and enjoyed months of uninterrupted play while others kept whining in chat.
    As pointed out most of the issues youre having seem to be connectivity related. I've had serious connection issues with torrent client running even when its limited to only about 5% of bandwidth.

    I have 7 generals (3 tavern, 2 vets, Stronghelmet and Grim Reaper) but in my news feed last night I apparently sent 9 generals in 5 minutes to an adventure. Maths was never my strong point but something didn't seem right there.

    I'm having exactly the same issues as described in your original post - I emailed support and they said 'connectivity issues' and there was nothing they could do...
    I've cleared the cache, cookies, and temp files regularly (can't log on at all at the moment because of "an error on this zone") and nothing works, it is incredibly frustrating, and as mentioned earlier, I didn't change anything, it just started happening after an update...

    This list is getting old
    • My internet connection can run YouTube, Spotify and massive games simultaneously. Yet it has problems running TSO? Alone? I don't think it's the internet connection. Well maybe it is, but not our end of the wire.
    • It's been tried it doesn't make a difference.
    • How many times per hour is recommended? Doesn't help at all
    • How many times per hour is recommended? Doesn't help at all (no I didn't double post this line.)
    • Increase the amount TSO uses? You're right it shouldn't matter and it doesn't.
    • Latest flash player, huh? Does that help? Nooooo
    • Other browsers work better? No. They have their very own issues. After trying them I think I'll stick with the bugs I know.

    It's a good rule in life that if you think there is something seriously wrong with everybody else, it's probably you that there's something wrong with

    Please turn of the repeat button and play a new song. It's time to face the facts. TSO is seriously bugged.
