This issue seems to come and go depending upon the time of the day, but when in full force, I can watch the 3 wheels spin indefinitely and the fleet will not launch. Typically I have to click to another area of the game, come back to the fleet select screen and go through to the launch screen, sometimes with better results.
I have tried it with and without ANY add-ons. No better or worse, (except for Infinity, which is an acknowledged issue)
I have logged out and back in, reset my browser (Opera), restarted my browser.... all with varying degrees of at least temporary improvement. But it always creeps back in.
"Use a different browser"
Because something in the game is doing something that builds up enough (something) over time that makes the browser begin to choke. And not just the fleet launch. That is just the biggest tip of the iceberg. Any selection can take FAR longer than it should.
This game has gone from lightning fast, to a cludge. For a simple game it is embarrassingly slow.
Can you imagine if this level of performance was foisted on a FPS online game?
Please fix this GF!
The problem I had with the game was: While I was in my game, the fleet attack was coming. In the face of the incoming attack, I wanted to deploy my fleet from the moon to the planet 2 minutes before the battle. But I got a warning that the fleet was at war. When I went to the fleet menu, I couldn't see my fleet. But my mines (metals, crystals and deteriums) were standing on my moon. the attacking player was also often making a probe attack. Is that why I got a warning that the fleet entered the war? And then that's why I couldn't see my fleet in the fleet menu. I do not know. As a result, I couldn't do anything because I couldn't see my fleet in the fleet menu.
