      Zarel just saying thanks for providing thousands of us the best online pokemon simulator Also I find your reddit posts very interesting and im curious why you switched your name to Zarel because I know you used to go by something else although i forget what it was.just posting my appreciation for all the hard work you do since im quite certain you spend hours apon hours trying to improve showdown.

        There's different types of lag? can you explain?
        Sep 17, 2014 at 8:49 PM

        Zarel
        Lag means a long time between you doing something on your computer, and getting a response back. There are a lot of steps involved between when you click something, and when you get the final result, and any of those steps being slow results in lag.

        Fixing lag involves identifying which one of those steps is slow, and making it faster.

        I learned code by myself when I was 10ish. PS took a month or two to get to public beta.

      Hey Zarel, could you PLEASE fix the cancel button
      its not working and starting to cost me too many games.
      1. jrm115
        jrm115
        the only reason there is a cancel button at all is if you made your move before your opponent. your client probably sends a message to the servers saying you have made your move and when the server says "cool, so is your opponent" they execute the moves regardless of whether you've cancelled your request. he can't fix it because your computer is what's saying you made your move

        Well, I can by making it react faster. It's essentially a lag issue, and lag is my #1 priority right now.

      I just wanted to thank you for making PS! If it wasn't for you, competitive pokemon may have never become what it has. I'm truly thankful.
      P.S. It is a pretty good team builder

        If somebody spamming the timer is a constant problem, just start the timer at the beginning of the match so they can't turn it on and off. I really doubt you're going to lose because of lag unless you have 150 second lag, which I really doubt

      Hi zarel, I have an interesting idea for a new meta called power trick which basically involves defences and offenses being swapped all of the time. Sorry to bother you but I didn't know who to suggest it to, it would be interesting with like skarmory being offensive and alakazam being a special wall :)
