What are your load times for Timelines?

I find my load times are really horrible, so I decided to time them. It’d be really helpful if others could time theirs so we can all compare.

Before timing it I completely closed the app, then timed it from the moment I tapped the icon to the moment the “Play” button popped up.

I tend to load it up, go make a cup of tea, and it’s usually just loaded when I get back -and I’m a Brit, so I’m serious about my cuppa ;)

It is a slow game to load, but most of the other ones with similar levels of content are too.

1m 4s which is on my home wifi.

Longer if on spottier, more user-shared wifi.

I am using a bit of an out-of-date phone compared to what’s out now.
But will be getting a new phone within the next week to three weeks.

Now that’s more like it. Just timed mine the same way Gilbert did—3 minutes, 20 seconds.

(I do the same as you, furyd, except with me it’s making coffee instead of tea. wink )

So, Gilbert and Gaghgagh, you should count yourself lucky it loads as fast as it does for you. I’ve never had it load any faster than about 3 minutes, dating back to the start of this year (months prior to v2.0).

Well…if I’m honest I was counting in my head, not using an actual timer. So my actual count was off by a whole lot, I am finding out. I count really slow when timing something in my head apparently.

Using a timer this time on home wifi - 1m 54s

Took me 26 seconds on my iPhone 7 from a full restart. I timed it with my iPad’s stopwatch.

2 minutes 20 seconds on an LG G4 & home wifi. Was just the logo until about 1 minute 30 when the loading bar started moving.

I knew it felt like it took forever if I was just staring at it, so I try to be doing something else while it loads. I know a lot of mobile games are the same for me. Glad I’m not alone.

There was a thread about this over a year ago. Would be interesting to compare numbers from people that posted in it to the same people now. Mine used to load in 45 seconds on my Note 4. It’s up to 1m2s now.

Don’t think load times are as much an issue as authentication time is.

Doesn’t bother me so much the odd time I check on the game on mobile. I remember the days of waiting 5-15 minutes for games to load on my old Amstrad 464 computer.

Don’t know what you’re complaining about.  It used to take ages to load a game off a cassette tape.  Was friggin’ amazing when we advanced to the 5 1/4 floppy…
Kids these days.  wink

I remember the 5 and a quarters well, my primary school had a BBC Micro. 3.5” discs were the turning point I feel. My Amiga 1200 was so fast when I got it grin

I guess I’m being spoiled by the fine second load times if the steam version… But I did find an old thread I made about this and I had it down to 45s on this phone.

Feels like 30-45 seconds with my wifi. 1-2 minutes if I’m not.
