my frustration is at its highest. my game playing is incredibly slow. up to 6 months ago my play was fine. sometimes it would be slow. if I am deploying 3, 3, 3, 3, for instance, maybe when I'm on the 4th one, the computer is on it's second one. Then when I attack, I can be 3 moves ahead of the computer. This just gets worse every month. 1 month ago It would take me 15 minutes to take one turn that has perhaps 15 deployments and 15 attacks. Now it 's twice as long. I can make 4 deployments and 4 attacks, and sit back and watch the computer try to catch up. taking 10 minutes. No exaggerations. I have cleared my cache. turned off my laptop. nothing helps. I am playing a larger single-player community game of the world, and I've been playing for 4 hours and only on turn 20.

What is wrong with my computer? As I say, i used to not have this problem 1 year ago. Same laptop.

Are you using Unity or Flash to play?
Try upgrading your RAM to at least 8GB, ideally 16GB. It might be worth upgrading your GPU as well. I have 8GB RAM and 2.20 GHz. You could run a full anti-virus scan; if there are any viruses, remove them. You could also clean your disk (https://danchurchblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/deleting-temporary-files/) and defragment your drives (https://danchurchblog.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/defragmentation/).
Sometimes, restarting your browser once in a while helps - clears your browser's RAM; browsers can be memory hogs.

Hmm, so since this gets worse every month, that would suggest that your computer is the issue (and not the game/unity). If this is the case, is other pc functions getting slower too? Or is only warzone slow. Also, try flash if you are currently using unity.

what levels are you playing? 10min isn't normal (although I've heard rumors it's possible to last that long, usually on seedy ads telling me to buy pills) but some levels really do challenge the AI on both Flash and Unity.

If your computer is getting slower each month, then your computer is quite likely to have malware. Definitely recommending an antivirus scan.
It's either malware your programs that your running are becoming more and more feature-enhanced, requiring more system resource to be used when running those programs, slowing down your device.

Try looking at how your system resources are being used. To do this:
Press ctrl+shift+esc; this open Task Manager
Click on "More details"

If your CPU usage is greater than 75% or your disk usage is quite high, then you probably have malware installed. To see what's draining your system resources, sort apps by CPU or Disk usage highest to lowest. If your PC feels quite hot as well, that's further evidence of malware (or your PC needing a clean from too much dust preventing warm air from leaving).
