:arrow_forward: ISSUE

Describe the problem in detail below. Please limit to one issue per thread.
  • I get consistent issues of 1. significant frame drops 2. stuttering and freezing 3. game lag
    This occurs in nearly every online multiple game.
    I thought this was only an issue with the previous HD version. I was wrong and this issue still occurs even in the new definitive edtion.
    I have a computer with very high specs. My online multiplayer experience with AOE2 DEF is garbage because the game constantly freezes every 5-10 seconds for 2-3 seconds.
    When the game freezes and lags then everything quickly speeds up on the screen to catch up.

List the steps to reproduce the issue... Be descriptive!
  1. Simply launch a game, play online multiplayer and the issues occur. I have no idea how to ‘replicate’ issues that are occuring outside of my control.
