Okay, so my Wizard 101 was working perfectly on the 7th. I bought membership on the 7th with a Wizard 101 card. I played for a bit and went to areas I need to unlock. But, the next morning I was experiencing serious lag. Once I got i n Wizard 101 my fps dropped to about 5-20 fps (I'm assuming). So every time I move I get serious lag. I tried looking at other forums for answers but none helped me. I've turned bloom active off, shadows of, smoothing off, fullscreen off, quest helper off, graphics to low, and decreased my resolution, I still feel the same lag. The loading screen when I go from place to place takes over a minute. (I timed it). My computer has 12 GB of RAM. It lags the same way on my other wizards. I even sold alot in my inventory. Nothings working, please help!
Wow! Me too. On Thursday it was all fine, however on Friday I tried logging back in and even at wizard101 loading screen (upon pressing play) was lagging horribly. I tried everything, Internet speed check, restarting my computer a few times and even re-installing the game. It only really started to occur on the Friday out of a sudden. I emailed support and am waiting for an answer.
So is your game laging horribly? Like, every turn you make it freezes or does not respond. Especially when switching realms/worlds/homes. Because that is what I am experiencing, I found out all my gardening is dead. But it'd take a good 30 minutes or more with that lag to revive all the seeds. So can you keep the post updated of what they say? Because I got this pattern of reply every 2 days. I understand perfectly that they are busy, but you'd be a source of knowledge in between. So far they are saying I am losing packets/signals on one of the servers/routes of receiving the file(s). Still waiting on a reply, but I am phoning my Internet Provider soon to see if it is their problem. So far the results aren't very positive.
So, then you have the exactly the same issue as me. That's what they said to me, too. I have been researching, and to get to the wizard101 server, my signal for some reason travels through a complete unrelated and uneccessary country (not mentioning names as I thinks I am not allowed to). I have contacted this company and waiting a reply. I think your signal is travelling the same as mine. Now for the interesting part; I can play pirate101 without lag! I trace routed that signal and it's going straight to US compared to Wizard101 signal. But the sad part is that there is nothing much that we can do.
