Hey everyone! I really need help because every day from 10 pm to at least 4 am central time The whole world starts freezing and lagging on me! Does this happen to anyone else?Please tell me because I seriously can't pay during that time! Except for the freezing in some areas of Wizard City enemies just completely walk off the road and into the houses. Please help me and tell me what this is about and if it's happening to anyone else? P.S. I've tried going on different computers and accounts of mine and it's still the same.

Thank you so much! I thought I was the only one having these problems! Do you have any idea about if Wizard101 will do anything about this?

Oh by the way sorry I think you misunderstood me The game isn't crashing on me or anything but it's goes really laggy and slow and starts freezing so like it looks like I'm not doing anything when I am and I end up missing out on a lot of turns and enemies literally start going in different directions into the houses and stuff.
Thanks for the reply though!

if you have an older computer, it will lag. It appears the servers are not too friendly with older ones. I had to get a new computer to eliminate the lag. With my old one I was 2 to 3 seconds behind everyone else.

I'm not sure about anyone else, but my game play has cleared up.

I did send an e-mail to help@kingsisle.com along with a DxDiag report, a Wizard Client log file, and Patch Client files. Support replied after just one day and said "We believe we determined the cause and have implemented a change which we hope provides a resolution." It's been working fine since then.

If you are still having problems, you might want to send an e-mail to help@kingsisle.com.

Unfortunately My computer IS new and in the period of 6 hours it just lags and freezes non-stop like I end up being up to 5 mins behind everyone else and when I come back it only comes back for like a few secs, When it's all normal it lags again and all the enemies walks out of the road and like into the houses (in Wizard City) or the walls and stuff .
