Ever since I updated my game today I've had major lag and sever call time outs. It's been happening when I try to load the clan requests for my clan and when I try to get my dragon skins to load in my journal. The clan requests and dragon skins won't load properly; I can't see people's names or pictures on the clan requests and I can only see a few of my dragon skins. The others won't load. When I wait for it to load the game starts lagging really bad and then I get a server call timed out message. Anyone else experiencing lag and/or sever call time outs?

Lazar, that was entirely uncalled for. There's a major difference in learning to deal with changes they make to the game and in dealing with bugs. It's not the end of the world that they changed how we get to things. The way you're acting, you'd think they committed some sort of terrible crime. I posted this for 2 reasons.

1. To report it, so the devs can fix it

2. To see if anyone else is experiencing this

I really didn't want to go through the trouble of uninstalling and reinstalling if it didn't have anything to do with my game.

I'd appreciate it if you would be nice. I wasn't mean to you on your post. If you really want to express why you're so upset, JustinPrate, a game designer and admin, replied to you on the post Brynjolf posted announcing the update. Go post to him why you're so upset.

Well, at least I know it's not just me. I figured it might have something to do with the update. I hope it's fixed soon. I haven't been able to do anything on the game today besides figure out how to get to everthing.

Yea its the update. It's probably cuz it's so big. it should be fine in a day or two. But I do hope the lag will be fixed.

Yeah, me too. My worry is that we're coming up on Christmas weekend so if it's not fixed later today or tomorrow then it will probably be the middle of next week before all the problems associated with the update is fixed.

I've had a lot of server timeouts, though only when I'm trying to switch dragons - when I go to click my dragon's picture in the corner it just keeps hiding both that and my Viking's picture, then after a few times it just gives me a server time out and crashes.

>Subject Line Loading...

I've had the same lag issues, and a few others. Has anyone tried playing with the MMO allowed? It's so bad for me that when I booted one of my vikings with the MMO on, the game freaked out. It loaded the training grounds, my viking, and my dragon, but I had no control. The UI wouldn't load, and the curors just stayed the spinning gears. Other times I've had server call time outs endlessly, and everything has lag. At least it's not just me experiencing this. Redownloading the game doesn't do much besides make it vaguely easier to deal with. I mean, I can't even switch maps or get to anything in my inventory or what have you with out loading for a few minutes. But at least I'm not alone with the severe lag.

I was afraid uninstalling the game and then reinstalling wouldn't help any. That's why I posted this thread to make sure it wasn't just my account before doing that. I sure hope this is fixed soon.

not much else to say! I'm most likely going to be using my actual game account, instead of my forum account.

What device are you using to play the game? If you're using an Apple device you might want to look at this thread. There are certain Apple devices that no longer support the SoD app.

My Woolly Howl children roared away my subject!

Yeah well, the lag is what is getting me, same thing with me having to open up my journal and switching my dragon. It gets irritating to be honest. Just press J to open up the journal if you're figuring out how to switch your dragons. 


Good luck with this update, which I knew would start out big and laggy.




Art examples, I have quite a lot of it!

oc writings go here when I think of them so this part might be lengthy.


Aero looked out into the horizon, looking to the town he knew. Eon and Jay gathered by his side, and each of them looked at eachother. 

They then observed that their generation was going to thrive.

From what they had done, they had obtained the peace within the Skaia, Dogonia, and the Myserit's territories. Eon looked to Jay, and Jay looked to Aero, but Aero kept his gaze on the city in the clouds.

"So what's it going to be like now?" pondered Jay, following him in his staring.

Aero spoke with a weak voice; "I don't know. All I know is that our world is never going to be the same."

A quicker way to switch dragons is to press v. Pressing v brings up your dragon list.

Another issue to report: I can't get in my farm. I've tried 3 times, once from the viking selection screen and twice by going to the Lookout. All 3 times the gears just kept turning and evenutally I get the Server Call Timed Out message. This is really frustrating. I'd like to get into my farm to harvest chicken eggs. I try to keep a large amount of chicken eggs to help feed my dragons.


The constant Server Call messages are just frustrating in general. I was really hoping this would be fixed before today was over because with Christmas on Monday, there's no telling when it will be fixed if it's not fixed today.


Edit: I decided to go ahead and uninstall and reinstall the game. That didn't do anything to fix my issues. I still can't get in my farm and I'm still experiencing Server Call Time Outs.

Electro!! Did you eat my subject?! Again?!

Hey! It happened to me too! I eventually gave up, gave it a day or two and patiently waited....



Nothing. Not working. I even got logged out (just like I got logged out during my FF tournament, IT'S HARD ENOUGH FINDING A PERSON TO PLAY AGAINST, when it was ending. I would've gotten 15 trophies -_-)


Anywho, after trying, and trying, it finally worked. It takes long but at least i'm able to enter.

Mine finally started working too. I still have days where I have trouble getting into my farm but most of the time my game's working fine.

Joined: 04/03/2017

The same EXACT thing is happening to me. I updated it, then it started lagging. I got past my home page in a flash, but then I got into the game, and it was SOO laggy. And when I tried to open the map, or accept a clan invite, or change my dragon, or go into my journal, or go into racing, it would load for FOREVER and then say 'Server call timed out. Please try again later." It's said this so many times. It won't let me access anything, or even use my second Viking.

The issue that I reported on this thread with my farm from the last update is happening again with this update. I can't get in my farm. The gears just keep spinning and eventually I get the Server Call Timed Out message.

Same here except for me, I cant get into anything. I click on ANYTHING I get a server timeout and the wheels just spin constantly. But if I don't click on anything, and I just walk around I will still get a server timeout no matter what.
