Many of us are having severe performance issues since 1/6/2021 2.2 patch, making the game virtually unplayable. Funcom has acknowledged the issue and says they are working on it, but it’s taking a long time. The issue is not universal, since some people report the game is running fine for them. Is there anything in the meantime that the community can do to help troubleshoot the issue?
As for myself, I tried the following to no avail: running with and without mods, changing graphic settings (low to ultra), restarting computer, killing background apps, updating video drivers, and running other games to see if they have issues. I haven’t reinstalled the game yet. I noticed the lag gets worse with thralls, or in my base around buildings, containers, etc. Running around the world alone is still laggy but better. I am running on an Alienware Core i5-8400 CPU @ 2.81 GHz, 16 GB RAM; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. If anyone cares to share their setup and if they have problems or not, or if anyone has had any success in troubleshooting these issues I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
