Hi there.

I'm just curious what is responsible for this extremely long loading time in some cases. My PC isn't made for gaming, it doesn't even have a graphic card, yet I'm always among the first players who reach the summoning status.

Or does this have to do with the internet connection?

I think its processor and hard drive speed that determines how fast u load the game, and u always load faster to urself than to everyone else, iv never had a game where i didnt load first and im sure there are people with a better pc than mine

You probably have a fast hard drive.

I'm not a specialist but when a game loads you put data from your HD to your RAM memory. Game data is often compressed so a combination of a fast CPU (to uncompress),a large RAM memory (to avoid paging to the HD) and a fast HD decide how long it takes to load the game.
Graphics card has no influence but high graphics settings (which you probably don't have) can increase load time because higher quality effects/models are loaded.

As smarter and brighter than me said before, I'll say it out in a simple sentence:
The speed is determinated by your RAM memory and hard drive, as it saves the data into it.
The bug, I don't think so...

and no, that is not correct, I have a pretty good computer and I find myself amongst the first ones, maybe 3rd, but never first (unless everyone has a bad CPU and low RAM...)

That sounds logical, my graphics settings are indeed rather low.

some people seem to have the worst computers ever... i mean... so slow sometimes

what are they running? windows 95 and a 100MHz CPU?

defies belief.

the server picks one purely random and gives him priority #1 (ahahaha riot pun)
the others get like 10%.
Sometimes I load 10 secs sometimes 40+

That's your computer's fault not the server's, mine loads within 5 seconds consistently each and every time, and that isn't just to me, I load first for everyone else too, my friend that I usually play with always comments on how ridiculously fast I get to summoning status

so there's no fancy tricks or anything stupid, it's just people using wind-up computers running DOS and then moaning about "lag" when they finally do get in
