I left this message under the hotfix itself but apparently you don't read any of those comments for some reason...
Prior to the hotfix (as someone playing at 1080p I had no issues in terms of what that hotfix actually fixed) Troy was by far the most optimized total war game of the modern era. I play the other games at 30 fps yet could play troy at 45fps with higher graphical settings, it was amazing.
Well one day I try to play and see it is updating. I think oh boy maybe Amazons, but instead I see a 1440 p hotfix on the forum.
I launch the game and its going between 10-15 fps now on all the same settings... What happened?
