Bad game performance after march update | Benchmark drops from 1100 to 795

Game Version:

Build: 101.101.36202.0
Platform: Microsoft Store
Operating System: Windows 10
Gamertag: Bluem4n

Issue: After the march update my game performance incl. FPS dropped from 80 FPS to 25 FPS. Also the benchmark test shows a decrease from 1100 points to 795 points. I have not change anything at my system configuration and it makes the game for me unplayable.

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:

  1. Start the game after march update
  2. the main menu will have a bad performance
  3. the game will also have a bad performance

I have similar issues since the recent update. Before it was fine, nothing else has change on my computer

@Bluem4n, @Geojak92
You should post your hardware specifications, so that developers get an idea, which hardware is struggling with game now.

I posted in the steam forum my specs on a similar post. I think someone more or less responded there, so I won’t post here again for now

I solved my issue by restarting my laptop. After that AoE runs like before the update.

It seems that beeing in standby or energy mode for a while and then starting AoE make some trouble.

Hope you guys will also find a solution for your issues.
