1. A server system that asynchronously controls a process of a game played by each player on external devices, the server system comprising:
at least one microprocessor; and
a communication section that communicates with an external device;
the at least one microprocessor is configured to
change by a parameter change control section, a parameter of a first player when a given activation condition has been satisfied, the activation condition being a condition whereby a process that changes the parameter of the first player is performed;
perform, by an extension control section, an extension control process that changes a parameter of a second player who relates to the first player when the second player has logged in after the activation condition has been satisfied;
receive, over the communication section from the external device, an indication that the second player logs in; and
adjust, by a change width adjustment section, responsive to receipt of the indication that the second player logs in, a change width of the parameter of the second player that is changed by the extension control process corresponding to an elapsed time until the second player logs in after the activation condition has been satisfied.
