    recently my computer got more laggy 😳 :x, that the loading a round takes a little time 40+ secs :P, now i noticed that if a lag a lot sometimes they buy screen does not appear (this is in online games), even if the coutdown timer (for buying) gets displayed. after they countdown expires i could not buy anything and it will look like i missed a move

    hmmm, that would explain the frequent “missed moves” on round changes. is the server not syncing everybody after a round change?

    The only thing I’m questioning about this is, if your computer is getting laggy then how is it a game bug?

    my computer got laggy for reasons independent from the game, but it is the game after i lag reacts weird: does not wait for me (or kick me) before sending the sync message, making me to skyp the buy dialog when i shoud get it or get kicked

    2 questions come to mind:

    1. How long should the game wait for someone to load a round? People with slow PCs deserve to play, but on the other hand, there has to be a limit.
    2. What should happen if your PC takes too long to load the map?

    Perhaps just a “Timeout” message of sorts would be nice – if even just to inform the user of what happened.

    sorry i tought you were pointing only to him; but mine is different, i don’t miss a “shot”, i was missing only the chance to buy. When it was happenning to me the countdown timer was green and were already at something like 25 or 30 secs; also i was hearing the “ding” sound (popup buy tab) while loading the map.

    i’ve switched to linux and now my pc takes like 4 secs to load a map :), but still i belive it’s a bug, because i should have got kicked instead of going out of sync, btw all the time it happened i was in the official servers.
