Hello to all,
I wanted to share my bad performance issues so far!
- First of all my specs: i5 4690k at 3.8 - 8gb ram ddr3 2400 - gtx asus strix 1070 8gb - Res 1080p - drivers all updated
- Settings: low fog, no SCREEN REF, SSAO ON, AA: FXAA, Port. set to 2D, DX 11, everything else in high.
- Also: NVIDIA GPU selected in control panel, basically i followed EVERY tips on the internet.
I have afwul performance in map and battles but im going to talk about battles now. The original WTW ran well for me, 80fps on big battles with ultra settings at I get 50 fps on this benchmark with high settings.
But 50 isnt that bad, even considering the steady 80 fps in WTW I, right? for me it is, but it also get worse:
I was able to get similar performance overall with the same settings. The ratmen; however, cause issues. Wish I could lower graphic quality of just the low tier Shaven units. I can come from 60 to 28 fps in a second and then remain in 32 fps in 1v1 battles!!!
Even worse when they cast a spell in 2k rats, the fps goes down and down!!! 2v2 battles with +1 skaven faction is unplayable.
Also Elves fire dragons and stellar dragons also are causing fps drops. Why is it imposible to use SCREEN REF and FOG?
So essentially CA is doing the same thing they've been doing in Attila. Take a reasonably optimized game, throw more stuff on top of it until its not smooth unless you're the top 10% of hardware users. Not only that but they need to understand that ramming our processors so hard is a bad idea since processor tech moves in like 7% increments per gen unlike GPUs that move 30% per gen or something. Getting a 1080ti would do nothing. And upgrading my i7-3770k at 4.4ghz to an 8700k or something is in the books within this year but jesus christ.
