When I try to open a game nothing happens for like 5 minutes. Then it says connecting to Roblox for like 3 more minutes, after which it opens the game.

I don't have any internet or performance problems. I have a pretty good PC and I have been playing Roblox for more than 3 years now.
This problem started happening one week ago. I tried everything I could to fix it, inclucing:

  • Uninstalled Roblox 4 times
  • Updating my internet drivers but they are already up-to-date
  • Restarted my PC
  • Opening it in another browser

But nothing made a difference.

  • Was this for all games, or were you trying to open the same game each time?

    if it works it works. giving a link as an answer isn't allowed here and rewriting doesn't really make sense either, but it would be good to give credit.

    Most of the things listed here would prevent Roblox from starting at all if they were broken, but they would not just slow it down.

Last year I had this issue too. Try:

  • Reinstalling
  • There might be an update
  • Your computer is too old to support graphics or other functions
