What needs to be done is that they need more servers up, and a server limit, that way it controls the amount of opeiple in it and itll control the lag
There uses to be three servers that would rotate but people stopped playing zomg so they knocked it back to two. Lag tends to get bad when the servers have been used for too long and they need to change them.
Same problem has happened to me, including when I'm trying to do PS and the screen freezes or I end up with ghost saws everywhere. Even outside of the Saw Mill, the screen freezes up every few minutes which is very frustrating I know.
Although, zOMG isn't the only game with problems due to lag. Places like Rally and Town are suffered with the same thing, although I don't go to Town often, in Rally it always freezes up for me and disconnects. We've need Gaia to deal with these problems as quickly as possible, otherwise this site is going to loss members who are tried and frustrated with Gaia always messing up.
The servers, the games, and all the flash rooms have the same horrible lag. I'm guessing it's the sudden influx of people coming out of school for holiday break, and people who wanted to catch Grunnygeddon 2012.
Down to 2 servers on zOMG as well, both of them are horrible, and if it lags to long, it right out kicks you out of the game. Bothersome.
