Random routing will work fine so long as the operating system has the ability to intelligently schedule the work. The problem is that the dynos were setup to handle request sequentially. Unicorn will help mitigate the problem, but the best solution is to not try and serve webpages from hardware that is about as powerful as an old mobile phone. The 2x dynos are a step in the right direction, but I have no idea why they don't offer a real app server like a 16x dyno.

It's probably easy to guess that once we have 2X dynos, 4X dynos (and up) may be on the way. We'll drive this according to demand, so if you need/want dynos of a particular size, drop us a line.
