[MERGED] Late-game performance in team games deteriorated in anniversary patch (42848)

The performance before the patch was better? :smiley:
I cant take you serious, why the hell you think all the pros just play their games on the old patch, esspecially the tournaments. The performance broke with the last patch and the hotfix isnt any better than the previous version.

since thats not what I said, I will just ignore you. maybe try reading it again otherwise its hard to take you seriously :smiley:

I mean that they are not 100% because surely one would say that I have a bottleneck, which is not the case. I have an I5-7400 and a 1060 and since sometimes the drops are 40fps in some occasions, very common they are 55, it may not be very significant for you, but they are horrible stutters. Definitely something was broken in this patch, because these drops before they happened. And it is not the first time that this error has been made, months ago it happened exactly the same, and they released a hotfix after two weeks, but this still cannot be fixed despite a month. Since the previous hotfix did not fix it.

while I understand there are still people having issues, it’s been mentioned over and over again that multiple variables can affect game and causes lag. most of the time when investigated, issue turn out not to be game related (not saying game didn’t have problem lagging, but definitely less for me and majority people I know after the hotfix).

i5 7400 is a 4c4t CPU with decent enough IPC at 3ghz should have no problem at 200-250 pop with 5-6 players, assuming you are actually running at the proper intel spec, no throttling, and none of the other players (lagger) dragging you down with them.

if you need help we can always test play and try to find out the issue.

Dude, I read some of your posts here. Several times someone writes an opposite answer to you, you come up with the stupid excuse “thats not what I said, read it again” bla bla…

Its exactly what you said, either you start being more precice or stop writing so much nonsense here, your destructive reactions are super annoying.

I will tell you a secret: If there are a bunch of people not undertanding your posts (which isnt the case but lets assume it), the problem most likely will be YOU and not the others so stop acting like you are the master professor here.

You are exactly one of those guys you offend yourself lol

its more like people can’t read. if you claim such a thing, quote me and quote yourself and re read it again.

I will tell you a secret as well: i could care less what you think!

boy, you seems to jump to conclusion, maybe you should read my comment properly before replying on something thats totally irrelevant, or dont reply at all or you make yourself look like a boy!

boy, you seem to jump to conclusion yourself. maybe if you re read the whole thing before replying with your ego, you wouldn’t look so childish!

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

:question: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.

When should the hotfix receive an update? The game was completely destroyed, you absolutely can not play online. And no this is 1000% not due to the setup or the hardware. Have always played to 4, before the update you could play 4 vs. 4 (CPU) with a population of 500. It didn’t run perfectly in the late game, but it ran decently. After the update it doesn’t run at all on all four.You pay for the game & it just gets updated broken.

This has been going on for over a month now and is a bottomless cheek that I have never seen from a game or publisher.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

:question: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST.

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:question: List the DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Play SG or MP, dont matter how many Players or Population
  2. After 40 min (max.) the framerate drops extremely to 1-5 FPS.
  3. After 15-30 min again, the Game is completely not playable. Units do not follow orders or do so only after partial minutes.

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES

:question: Include a OneDrive or Google Drive link to a SAVE GAME or REPLAY FILE (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue.

:arrow_forward: IMAGE & ATTACHMENTS

:question: Attach a relevant PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif), VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube), DXDIAG FILE (.txt), or CRASH/GAME LOGS (.aoe2record, .txt) below.

I know the performance is quite bad after the anniversary patch and update, but criticizing devs like this in a forum will only force the devs to close this topic. Which neither of us want. So, try to give constructive criticism else we will be the ones who will lose.

One was nice for weeks to months. This is not a request, this is a service. I paid for a working game, I don’t need free updates that break the game for months. And lose if at all the publisher, because I will never buy from them again and also advise everyone against it.

That has nothing to do with your PC, that’s your connection (or that of other players).
Remember, the game is only as good as the weakest player. If someone is playing on a crap machine it will mess you up too.

Nope its due to the current performance issues which are created from the game.

My PC is excellt and so is my connection, I sometimes still get yellow clock right at the start of the game while all other players have a blue icon so its me for sure.

What do you expect after mnths of trash game play oh good try guys keep it up you will get there
they have done nothing so giving them constructive criticism is out the window
Wouldn’t suprise me if they closed this topic there favourite move is denial , pushing blame on players (cause god forbid it be their incompetence) and burying their head in the sand
Not only a waste of money with this game but a waste of time 30 mins In either lagg someone drops (if not at start of the game) day by day just seems like this game is getting progressively worse

Yes I have, and I’d say I have a decent PC

They just simply don’t care. All they want is the DLC and if all pro players stay silent pretending the game is in a good state ( at least in streams) they won’t give a F***. And if we rant here saying stuffs hitting devs, it’s just a waste of time for us as I don’t think they are really caring about MP at this point.


Well I only sometimes watch Viper on YouTube, and already saw several times cuts where he and the other players said “lets go to old patch” (iirc it was the mixed teams showmatch where they went back after game 1).
So reading between the lines you can clearly see that they are not amused about it, but mostly dont comment too much on it most of the time (since I think they are also in a rough spot. They are making money with the game, therefore they dont want to publicly say: “hey look this shi*ty game we are playing”, they also have advantages with the game being more popular; not saying this would be greedy or anything, its their work, I can totally understand…)

not MBL he is the only one that doesn’t care says what he wants is AOE2 not the most popular aoe ? i thought so but after next to no comments from the AWESOME devs and lack of information seems not aoe 3 and aoe4 is the priority they have got to be dreaming if they think we will jump ship to them if they cant get this one right
the anniversary update was the games version of Covid just destroyed the AOE community and gaming
again i think the devs are doing AWESOME if doing absolutely nothing counted as anything
