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.

Ok so it’s not just me. It’s playable, but there are lag spikes since the update.

6 Likes

Same here.

Please hotfix this asap, because I think if it wasn’t for the lag spikes, we would have the best version of this game we ever had. But they are really annoying =(

Very annoying freezes …

Same here.

Also dropping for no reason, because my internet keeps going perfectly but my game is disconnected for some reason. This is extremely annoying… I’m getting really tired of this game

Thx DE.
I also have the lag spikes (like most players apparently) and people have crashes as I´ve heard from friends…
I was so happy with the performance the last few weeks and then they produce a patch again which they just dont seem to test, at all…

Its just disappointing.
I have to play a tournament round tonight with these issues… grrrr

Yeah it freezes a lot.
Devs, tell us what inputs you need from us, like the PC specs. We are happy to give if that fixes the issue.
