The Gray Screen of Death (GSoD) was a consistent burden to players early in the life of Scroll Wars. The shared hosting provider that hosted the site would routinely put up a gray error page whenever the site was overusing the CPU. Though the host was reluctant to explain how much was too much, they nevertheless threw the Gray Screen of Death up at the drop of a hat.

When the Gray Screen of Death was displayed, it was a signal that the game would be unusable for several minutes.
