Server Under Heavy Load
This is reported by a System notification. It indicates that your server is having preformance problems, and is unable to keep up with the actions it is being asked to perform.
There is no real solution to this other than improving the server, or reducing how much it is being asked to do:
- Somehow reduce how many units are spawned – units spawn when other units they consider enemies, or players, are within 1km range.
- Playing on a smaller map, e.g. Malden.
- Run a dedicated server – if you are using self hosted MP, try and set up a dedicated server, even on the same machine as your client it will be an improvement.
- Save and reload won’t help – all messages that are waiting are saved as well, so you just get the same number once you load again. But now it includes all the initialization and spawn requests added by loading code.

- Check you didn’t change profile.
