  • Slow Lobby Updates

    Since it seems that the lobby screens are only being udated every 10 - 15 minutes, I thought I'd remind you that the "Bust Orders" shows who is left as the tournament progresses as well, but without the average chips. Good thing we have PSOCalc.

    This is ridiculous! Why on earth does it take 10 to 15 minutes to update? I have been trying to judge the wait time on 3 tourneys. Think I will just unjoin and go to bed.

      We are in the process of making a very big change in the code to allow the lobby to update dynamically. We will not have the html pages anymore and our information will update in real time like other sites. However, I am not aware that the updates currently take that long. In fact I am quite sure they do not. I will forward the link to this thread to Gavin and see what is happening.

        It's true. 17 minutes into the 3 p.m. NLHE yesterday, the lobby was still showing the 'waiting list' (of 10 players at the time) . The 2 tables, however, were updating.

          Things seem to be back to normal today with lobby info 1-3 minutes old. Yesterday from mid-afternoon (PSO server time) on the updates were erratic. 10 minutes or more was not unusual. The 3:00 pm event still showed 10 players and availble for sign-up as late as 30 minutes after starting.

          One of the events showed 15 players in the lobby window but only 8 through the Bust Orders link.

            Still in bad shape ... just now Sat 93381 had started, but the 'waiting list' showed 9 players

              Things seem to be slowing down as the day progresses. Several event screens haven't been updated in 5 minutes. Table data seems to be more current however.

                5:00 pm eastern, lobby is not updating. I'm in a sat that has already started and it shows 7 on the list.

                  At 4:12 sat #93401 shows lobby info as of 3:31 with 9 players active. However, the table info for this sat was updated at 4:09 with 3 players remaining.

                    Hi all,

                    Sorry things are slow right now. We're working on the problem and hopefully it will be sorted out soon.

                    Gavin Scott
