How bad is your lag?

Prev13
The only time I see a lag is after I use the job manager to assign everyone a task, and it lasts about 20 seconds or so.

    On what device do you play TSTO?

    Lately I play it mostly on an Android simulator, it works very well.
    I also play it on my Samsung dual core tablet and it rarely lags,
    but on my quad core phone it lags all the time :shock:

    The lag in my game has been steadily increasing to the point now where it's frustrating just trying to clear the zombies from my town and assigning tasks. How bad is the lag in your town? Does it lag for you even when just assigning tasks?

    I'm trying to figure out if this is mostly an issue with my device or whether it's a game-wide problem.

    More than likely its your device. My iPad mini lags when trick or treating is up and theres a lot of on-screen activity, but my iPhone 6 has none of the associated problems keeping up with all the screen activity.

    On my phone it's almost impossible to play the game.
    My phone has good specifications: quad core processor and 1,5 GB RAM.
    But on my tablet (dual core processor and 1 GB RAM) it runs very smooth.
    I just don't understand why TSTO laggs on my phone.

    And BTW, lately I prefer to play on my desktop because it has a bigger screen
    and I don't have to charge it. :lol:

    The lag between neighbors is pretty bad. I've started visiting every other day because of it.

    The lag in my actual town got A LOT better when I upgraded my iPhone this week from the 5s to a 6s with much more memory.

    Lag on my tablet is getting worse. But, not bad most of the time. It's bad when collecting things other than $ and XP. So, when collecting from the campfire, crafting resources, monorail resources, Springfield Heights Resources etc. it lags and pauses. But, I can collect a whole screen full of buildings and normal character jobs with no problems at all.

    Also, load times are longer than they have been. Not a problem during startup but really slows down neighbor visits.

    The lag on my iPad Air is is horrible, but there's no lag on my iPhone 6s, so yeah. Probably the device more than the game itself.

    iPad 3rd Gen.

    I don't think I had lag during monorail. Maybe a little.

    But now...

    If I tap the campfire kids I have to wait like 15+ seconds as the frame rate is about 1 fps for awhile. After I use the job manager it seems to ignore my input for 5-10 seconds.

    If I tape one a group of nightmares then it's all in slow motion for at least a few seconds.

    Swiping the screen to quickly scroll from one area to another is mostly a thing of the past. This means I'm more likely to accidentally tap on a building or a person I don't want to tap on. And makes chasing formless terrors annoying.

    My lag is terrible on my phone (xperia z3 compact), tablet (samsung tab s), and desktop (genymotion on i7), when my town is full of snakes, but only a few are showing.
    I have hardly any to no lag once they become unstuck.

    At first I thought it was coincidental, but after switching to snakes this morning for the daily taskymabob and logging in after 8 hours both my towns started lagging like *.

    And here I was thinking snakes have no lags :?:

    I'd gladly take some lag right now.... getting the server unavailable screen for the last 7 hours, so an accessible town and lag would be preferable :(

    I notice that it lags sometimes pretty badly when I am visiting my neighbours collecting FP points.
