Game begins to stutter during large battles

I’ve been playing online with some friends and have been enjoying the game!

However, when we get to the end on 2v2 or 3v3 (players vs Ai) the large battles start to make my game frees every few seconds. I usually notice this when all of our armies and destroying the enemy bases.

During those moments I ask my friends if it’s skipping for them also and they say “no” and that everything is fine, its just me. One friend is using a 1070 like me and I believe the other hardware he has is much older than mine. The other friend is using a gaming laptop with a 2060 (Not sure but it’s newer than mine.)

My internet is 1.2gb down and 35mbp up from Xfinity.

My computer is an AMD Ryzen 5 5600X 6-core, 32gb ram at 3400mhz, GTX 1070, and the game is running off an SSD.

I ran a benchmark test and everything is great.

And I don’t think anything is overheating but that is my next test next time I play.

Any idea why I’m encountering these issues?
