Unhappy Extremely Slow Chat Server C20, Farm Server W22

Is there any way to be moved to a different server? My husband has been stuck on server "Chat Server C20, Farm Server W22 for quite some time now and it is extremely slow, has many glitches, etc. He has asked before to be changed to a different one if possible but did not receive an answer. We sit right across from each other and I am on a totally different server and do not have many issues at all while he is totally miserable. Please help...

Hi Carol,
I moved your post to the subject thread about game running slow as we try to keep the subjects organized here to make it easier for all to find.

I am sorry but there is no way to change servers as they are automatically assigned by the program. They are set up that way to balance out the number of players on each server. It is not the servers that cause slow downs and all the servers have the same program on them. There was a problem that many on server C20 was having problems staying connected but tha has been solved and was back to normal yesterday.

Please read all the suggestions in the first post of this thread to see things for making his game go faster and smoother.

Hi Mom Glenda,
Loose animals are not the only things that can cause slow downs. Staggered fields with waters, buildings, trees, and flowers layered can also cause slowing down.
An overloaded internet link can also cause slowdowns. You data goes through many links from your computer, through your service provider and many more links before the data gets to the Facebook app server and then more links between the app server and the Farm Town servers. If there is an overloaded link then the data would get through but with a delay as each link handles the data passing through from all sources in a first come, first served basis.
You might want to try all the suggestions in the following link as those might help specially restarting your modem. Also try the server tests and see what you get for that.

Hi Mom Glenda,
The servers can only process the data as fast as it gets to them. When I did the server test tonight they responded very fast. When we lost Farm Town for the couple hours it was an internet link into the data center so was affecting most of us. That was corrected after the couple hours.
Your farms have changed as you add more facilities, land upgrades, and other things that have been released in that time.

Just for our information what servers are you on?

Default Game saving

I'm not the only one with this problem
Yes it does it on ALL Browsers
Yes I have cleared everything out and the cache
When I work one of my farms and click to go to the next one, the thing that is showing in RED of how many it has to save takes FOREVER before it will save and go to the next farm.
I have Everything turned off except for what I am working on like if it is Trees, Flowers or what ever.
Love this game, and have a lot of money it, but it needs Help

Hi Dana,
I moved your post to the subject thread about the game running slow as this is not a display issue.
Please try the suggestions in the first post of this thread and the ones in the following link:
http://www.slashkey.com/forum/showthread.php?t=627590


This is not a server or game problem. If it was everyone reporting this much slowdown then there might be a problem with the servers, but those reporting this are few. The servers can only process the data as fast as it gets to the server.

It could be an internet slowdown somewhere in the many links between you and the Farm Town servers. Or it could have to do with how much layering you have on your farms as the more layering the slower your computer can process and send the data.


Please try all the above suggestions and let us know what you get from those. If you want us to check this further please provide a link to your farms.

Hi Matrix,
The only thing I can tell you is to read my answer to Dana and try the suggestions listed there.


When you layer trees, flowers and buildings over staggered 9x crops then you are going to get a slower response.
