Ever here of the AWS? Maybe you could fire up some more servers when you have high traffic. I mean this isn't the first time. You should be aware that you will have much higher traffic on Saturdays. You should be able to resolve the problem in a matter of minutes, not hours. Or maybe, stop giving your service away for free when you can't even provide it to people who pay. About to cancel my subscription.

They should just enable p2p during peek hours, no need for extra bandwith when viewers p2p with each other, you can't really solve the bandwith issue ever without p2p.

I hear you, I'll turn a blind eye if this is infrequent, but if this crap starts happening every week I may unsub too.

Well now the watch history is broken, won't save any history on a watched episode and refreshing the video starts it from the begining.

Crunchyroll can take this VRV shit and shove it up your ass, quit advertising that shit and fix the actual problem.

VRV is fucking garbage, you want me to pay an extra $3.04 to use the service when you can't even prevent the overloading of the servers, that is a joke.

I hear you, I think that's what pisses me off even more. It's like hey our main website is broken, why don't you go roll the dice on our sister website. So let me see I have ad-free viewing here since I pay for it, but I can go put up with that crap over on VRV even though I pay here? Yeah...no thanks.

I'm assuming you are taking about buffering issues. It would have been a good idea to write that explicitly in the thread title so CR knows what you are talking about.

Anyway, I completely agree. I tried to watch Garo-Vanishing Line 8 times. Each time I could barely watch for 2 minutes before I would got stuck in endless buffering. Although it's never been this bad, I've noticed more buffering issues than usual in the past week or so.

1000x this! I still don't understand VRV's relationship with Crunchyroll nor should I need to. Crunkyroll should just work as advertised, especially when I'm paying for it.

It doesn't cost extra if you simply link your CR account. It simply gives you an additional place to watch:

This has been an issue since they first started showing Dragon Ball Super. When they first started showing episodes, and every time important events have happened in the anime, the site has taken a dump. The thing that irritates me the most is that they have known about the issue for a long time now, but don't seem to care to come up with a solution. I'm paying because I want to support anime, but I don't think they understand it is just as easy for people to dump their subscriptions and find it for free.

You would still would have no idea which episode you left off on and be unable to access the forum, but I suppose it's better than nothing.
If they are going to essentially force us to VRV every Saturday night they need to advertise this aspect more.

On another note the longer they drag there feet on remedying this issue the more likely Netflix and Amazon are going to steal market share and despite this site's flaws I'd hate to see that.
