Ever think that loftar's tinkering with the server on the weekends might have broken something? Seriously, painhertz is right. You aren't a server admin so you have not a clue as to what may or may not be causing the problems.
CAN the bots break the system? potentially, yeah, they can. Is it what's causing the current problems? I doubt it as the server runs fine for days until it suddenly chokes like this. If it was the bots, it'd be nearly constant or start showing issues almost immediately after the server came back up.
FYI, server is getting rebooted. Also, try using right place for this, namely the "server issues" thread in the Announcements.
Of course I thought that, because I am not an idiot. In fact; given that the lag tends to increase over time, regardless of the number of players connected, I would assume that this new lag problem is a server-sided bug.
Seriously; re-read the OP. Line 1 was 'please reset server'. Line 2 was 'oh also, please don't spam the server'. I never drew a direct correlation. In the future I will be more clear in my postings, lest they be fodder for flame-junkies with serious personality disorders (NOTE: I am not a psychiatrist, I make no claims to be a psychiatrist, nor have I ever seen painhertzs medical records - this is merely a personal opinion).
Secondly, painhertz is never (very rarely) right.
And finally; yes, next time I will post in the appropriate forum. Please forgive my mistake.
I find your lack of face disturbing...
