    uh ... Is WGT really running this slow?

    "YES" ... "INSANELY SLOW"

    Forget the caches and cookies - That's been done.

    Forget about blaming the ISP - That's not the problem.

    (I'm running 500 Down/25 Up) - That's been confirmed.

    I'm not slow anywhere, except WGT.

    Perhaps it could be one, or a few of the things I've been thinking about:

    "SERVERS" - Not enough memory(?)

    Not enough bandwidth for Server (User) and/or Server (Database)

    Database Server(s): CPU Load - Memory

    Web Server(s): CPU Load - Memory Usage - Bandwidth to End Users - Bandwidth to Database Server(s).

    I would really like to see a few of those numbers............

    I dont know Sticks mine is slow as well . Its been this way for awhile now . Im thinking its due to the weather . With the storms in the south and the flooding no telling how many towers are down  and the damage being done .None of us knows the path of our signals but you can bet that there`s a whole lot going on between us and WGT .

    It could be some localized issues like this.

    I am having slowdown issues on a number of sites - especially ones that require any significant level of bandwidth like WGT.

    If it really were a WGT issue - like we had when Wolf Creek came out and the servers really were overloaded, we would have a lot more complaints than we see now.

    This happens everytime when Free rentals is going on... So much playerys play game and servers cant handle it ! i dont know why they do this if they are not ready for presure ! i remember free rental and it was the same problem as now. Game is so slow, meter is freezing and sometime wrong distance. It is so sad that wgt cant aford more servers. But it looks like they dont care about community and ruining game experience. Its not so expensive buy more servers especialy for big company like this.

      Also let us not forget that its summer time and school is out for the most part all across the US . Kids sucking the life out of the internet playing online games and who knows what else .

    Extremely slow for me as well for about a week now. Not even remotely an issue on any and all other websites.

    The main site seems to be taking its time getting from place to place but the game isn't affected if you go directly to the Game Client and by all means don't play with the main page open.
