current slowness

You may have noticed Weewar running rather slow at times after Friday’s update. We are investigating what is causing this. The new server cluster is running at a fraction of its possible load maximum and all seems to be working perfectly – yet the site feels slow from time to time. If anything the update should have sped things up and it seemed to have done that initially. Please bear with us while we sort it out.

Needless to say that all pro users will be compensated once everything is running smoothly again!

    I don’t know if this info will help at all but, right now, it’s extremely slow for me.

    Since the update everything is worse. Even when things are fast enough, I experience weird issues like some actions just never complete and the spinner keeps going and going until I refresh the page. This also didn’t happen before.

    I have no idea how things are behind the scenes (well, I only managed to find out you’re using Java thanks to an error page on From my experience, it’s possible that slowness associated with low CPU usage could mean you’re having some resource locking issue (DB locks, file locks, thread locks, semaphores, etc).

    The site is much faster than it was earlier today, but the big problem is that bugs from the test version are present on the regular site now. I’m playing a game with a friend, and when he went to take his turn he couldn’t move his units… he could move mine! He had full control of my account, including chat, surrendering, draws, and control of my games.

    Anyone else seeing the same thing?

    Hrmmm….I still can’t remove a finished game from my queue.  All I can do is “View the game”.  Thoughts?  I already cleared out my cache and restarted and logged on and off a few times but nothing changed.

    Never mind…I found it.  For those who don’t know (probably not many by now), you have to view the game and instead of the “Surrender” or “Abandon this game” button, they are replaced by the “Archive this game” and “Remove permanently” buttons.  :-D

    I can’t seem to delete any games from my list…even when the game is over? What should I do?

    We have moved all game management functions into the game view. So in order to remove or archive games you need to open the game first.

    I just wanted to give you guys a heads up on a weird little bug I found. Twice now, I’ve gone into my HQ, noticed it was my turn to play a round, and clicked to enter the game. Once in the game though, it says “anable is playing…” at the top and I have to log back in again to be able to take my turn.

    I’m using Firefox on WinXP if that helps at all.

    I tried to submit this via the feedback link but it said I wasn’t authorized to view the page when I click submit. =/

    I have a bug where I get the yellow sign that says its my turn, but when I click the button its not my turn yet. Not a big deal but kind of annoying.

    Well this morning everytime i try the community tab, my computer locks up.  I tried waiting it out to see if was just slow, but 2 or 3 minutes is a long enough wait. i also have the same problem as anable. i usually have to log in twice to actually get to play a game.  The speed is tolerable but it certainly isn’t faster.  There’s more but that’s enough complaining, thanks for the great little addictive game.  We all know you guys will resolve all the issues. :)

    Thank you all for the patience.

    Weewar will be down for another maintainance update later this day.

    I have noticed the slowness – presumed it was my Internet connection being annoying though… Thanks for the fix Weewar team!

    Possible bug. Game 43175.

    10 (red) raider attacked a 10 (blue) LI, both on plains. Raider dropped to 1 and LI went to 8.

    Hope this is the right place to report this.

    HI all,

    we are very sorry for the continued problems. We have resolved the initial speed issues but are left with the new servers running once more close to their limit. So the recent downtimes where small patches to the configuration to resolve a few bottle necks (new ones).

    We are also in the process of rewarding all pro subscribers with a 5 day extension to make up for this. More details to follow soon.

    Sorry again!
