I noticed that the Battle Royale section of the notes contains a "Performance" section which addresses the terrible fps drop that came along with the most recent patch, but the Save The World section does not. Is it safe to assume that any fix applied would also spill over into the PvE portion of the game, as it is something affecting both PvP & PvE?
Tons of players are simply unable to play the game anymore, when it ran perfectly fine before with no hang ups at all; aside from when a player would join the game. Prior to the update I was getting 60 fps constant on medium settings, and post update fps was 15-20, with occasional drops to 5. I, along with many others, have sent in game feedback, support tickets, made posts on both the official forums and here, but couldn't get anyone from the PvE side of things to comment about it, or even ackownledge the issue.
I found a thread in the Battle Royale With Cheese section of the official forums today where someone representing the PvP side recognized the problem and said they were looking into it. As a PvE only player, I have no reason to look at the Battle Royale section at all, as I'm indifferent towards it, but this would've been amazing info to have earlier in the week. Just the recognition from a company official on the issue goes a long way, and I'm desperately hoping that their fix for the issue carries over into StW.
The only reason I've been able to play since the 1.7 patch is because I altered some commands to make the game look like complete garbage so I could juice every little bit of fps... It literally looks like an N64 game right now, but at least I'm getting 60 fps with only minor dips to 45ish in heavily wooded areas.
I'm sorry for the long rant, I just love this game and hate to see such a large portion of the player base unable to play. That's no good for anyone. I want to see this game succeed, but I can totally understand why someone who was running the game fine prior to a patch would just quit for good when no fix was seemingly in sight. That could be fixed so easily by communication.
I hope something happens soon so I can go back to playing a game that actually has other players in it.
We are currently looking into the issue players are experiencing with FPS drops. Rest assured its on our radar, and if I get any updates Ill let you folks know!
