Torn City has faced a huge increase in the number of players in the game. Due to the complexity and the cron jobs on the server there is a significant latency.

Attempts to solve this include cleaning up the game and installing more RAM in the server. There are future plans to move torn city onto a cluster server to resolve these issues.
