View Full Version : Game slows down to a crawl when 5 or more troops on board

Today, I got to the finals in draft tourney 14536 playing a dwarf deck.
The servers were relatively slow and a few seconds would pass between each priorety phase.
However, when I had around 5 creatures on the board (and a worker bot factory), the game became so unresponsive, that I waited whole minutes between every action..
At the end, I won game 3 with 10 seconds on the clock.
The strange thing is this did not happen in match number 1 (2 was a bye).

For sake of reproduction, state of the board around the time things started to really slow down on second game:
3 worker bots
Worker bot factory
War Hulk
Elimination Specialist.


I know a similar problem was reported with shinhare decks.
Just wanted to let you know it can happen with dwarves as well and as soon as you get around 5-6 cards on the table.

Thats strange, I don't have issues with lag until I reach 15-20 cards out. I will keep an eye out for dwarves.

I've played a lot of dwarf and haven't noticed any slowdown with such a small number of cards out.

i am a fan of dwarves and bunnies on drafts and i haven't had this experience before and I usually have more than 5 (more than 10 for bunnies) troops on the board each game

PS. i have played more than 40 drafts and at least half / third of them are with bunnies and robots
