game lag

The lag during blitz on here is wearing thin.

I mean I was hoping to move sites and make this my primary go-to eventually and I was even considering becoming a member but the lag is absolutely fooking incredible.  

If the lag is caused by the adverts and the adverts cease after becoming a paid member then, sorry, that's blackmail and it's really not happening.

8secs to register the first move in 3min blitz, nonsense

I have never seen that kind of lag. I'm in the US, so that helps, but even in mobile web, with a slower connection than my computer, I don't see things like that.

 

There are some things that can be done to mitigate issues:

Thanks for your reply and the link.

 

I usually have three tabs open including a chess website, which, when I'm on lichess, is no hindrance.   Everything else is either up to date, cleared quite regularly, and I've optimised communications.

It's these adverts me thinks.
