Huge lags after the new patch

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • Build: After new July patch

After the new patch there are huge lag issues playing the game. It even appears in offline matches so it might not even be a server related issues. I also saw it in the stream of some streamers.

Here’s how to reproduce the issue:

  1. Play a game

Yeah I just played a session after the new patch and I get frame drops/stuttering about every 20-30 seconds. I have the Steam version with the HD graphics DLC installed. I had no issues before.

Same issue here. On top of that my PC once froze completely after destroying the yellow castle in the Mongol Raiders challange (think at the moment the trigger for converting all the buildings was activated). With completely I want to say there was no response at all from the PC, was not able to exit the game via ALT+F4, or open task manager or anything…
Never happened in an other game before, just AOE2:DE things
(It is not the first time this happened to me, but at least I know they did not fix that in the current patch.)

Same, every couple of seconds, there is a brief, couple-hundred-milliseconds long micro-stutter/freeze since the new patch. Hotfix ASAP would be much appreciated.

How on earth did the devs not notice this during playtesting? Did they do any playtesting? Or did they know about it and release anyway?

I just booted the game and a singleplayer offline game to see and it’s the same for me. Sporadic but frequent stuttering to the whole game.

Had a ten minute game with about half a dozen freezes. So every 2 minutes or so the game freezes for a second or two before returning to normal.

This is unplayable until hotfix.

Same here, not that commonly as for others, but game rarely frezzes for around 1 second. I’m on steam.

Same here, there are a lot of players with this issue, even “Pros” that are opting for not to play.

FIX needed.
