EZ Peak and Off-Peak Hours


 Posted 2 months ago, edited 2 months ago More by MARTIN M.

It may be my deluded imagination or otherwise, but in the few years I have been on this platform(SFI) I have tended to observe that it is 'easier' to navigate through some Eager Zebra games with a relative ease at some hours than in others...For instance Card King, GoldStreak, and now Brain Sprint. How logical or hypothetical is my observation?

Not sure Martin. I had myself convinced that I was winning T-time when I played around 10:00 p.m. Canadian time. I had quite a run at that game but it has since fallen off. I almost feel you can convince yourself of your out come according to how positive you are. I do believe you have an inner feeling when you're on a winning streak. Not sure how logical that is. Maybe all our stars are in alignment.

Hi MARTIN M, That's exactly the Good point of yours. I do hope that many others may have the same good observation as yours. But I suggest that observation should be dealing with aesthetic. Which means that every single person have own taste, no matter how a thing goes on its own type or system but that's the one goes with a good taste. All the best.

Hi Martin, My SFI days change 1 pm Philippine time. I do my thing at the same time every day. That gives me another 24 hours to deal with any possible internet or power interruptions. Now to get to your post. What I experience is that it is not a particular time situation, but the frequency of my playing and feeling comfortable that increases my confidence. All the best with your business. Wheels up! Ron Pate

I'm sticking out my neck here, taking on the rep as being a bad guy. But, it seems tome, like in a casino, if you figure out how to "beat the dealer,"you keep your mouth shut. Otherwise the others begin to beat you out and the dealer changes his tactics. We've heard it many times in the Forum to keep your best ad sites to yourself and don't tell anyone when there is a Spin and Win. I think the same goes for all competitions at SFI. 10:00 Kenya time? Hmmmm?

Hello Martin. There are indeed times where network congestion can make navigating a page less responsive. This occurs when many users attempt to access the page or site at the same time and the total network traffic in bandwidth demands gets close to or even exceeds the available bandwidth of the site. When this occurs, it is possible that you could experience what is called network lag. Which from a user point of view, is when a page becomes unresponsive, or takes a long time to load, or even says that the pages is unavailable. If you experience any or all of these then the solution could be as simple as changing the times that you access the pages where the lag occurs. Network traffic and congestion is dictated by the number of simultaneous users and that can be greatly influenced by time zones. Hope this explanation sheds some light on network lag. Kind regards Antony

Yes, I agree peak hours slows down transmission. I adjust myself to do other activities, like gardening, small creative projects to help promote my interests. Jan Green Network Majic Queen

Martin, I used to wonder about that too, especially with the T-Time game, but I have since realized that, since this is a worldwide platform, there would be more congested and less congested times throughout the day and night. I don't know if you are deluded or not :wink2:, but probably the easy times have more to do with your internet connection than whether there are more or fewer people playing the games you mentioned. Just my two cents, Johnna Ingram
