- Was Sienna played? Which career?
- Was there lit lamp oil involved?
- Which locations do you notice this the most in? Screenshots of the worst offending areas appreciated!
The one I noticed the drop from 75 to 50 fps was Cinder Peak, there are few places that decrease FPS more and some less but the whole map is very hard on performance. I don’t know if Slaanesh’s curse affects it.
Probably the worst area in the map. Looking the way like in the screenshot it’s barely 50fps and looking directly behind me was almost 80. On other maps it fluctuates 65-75fps at most.
The other maps are 2 last arenas. One is for the Expedition of Courage (here with Nurgle curse):
Here FPS was was about 50 without enemies and with screen full of angry rats maybe slightly above 40.
The other arena I don’t remember the name but it was for the third expedition (one before the citadel), where the arena is in a snowy/icy region and there are 2 phases to it. One above the ground and one below the ground. Both above and under hit the FPS very very hard. From my normal of about 70 on all of maps to barely above 40. I only played it with curse of Slaanesh but other maps with this curse didn’t cause massive drops for me (apart of Cinder Peak).
Many other maps have varying degrees of bad performance but those 3 mentioned are by far the worst and make it hard to play, not only because lower FPS but because there is such a huge variance of high to low fps like on Cinder Peak.
One honorary mention of a map with problematic performance would be the Holseher’s Tower but I dodn’t have the chance to screenshot it or take a closer look at the FPS although I noticed that it plays worse for me anytime I’m there regardless if there is a curse on it or not.
- Did your FPS drop after using power-ups, or right from the start?
Always right from the start. On previosly described arenas basically everywhere on the map while on Cinder Peak it fluctuated. Screenshot from the Cinder Peak is from few steps from starting position and it was a place and direction of looking that hit the hardest.
I know that looking at a lot of geometry worsens FPS but these kind of drops in performance didn’t happen to me before on other maps.
Cheers guys, absolutely amazing update, I hope we can get even more content for it in the future <3
