Issue Description:
So i just got the game and my fps are always around 35 to 50, but when i alt+tab and stop focusing the game i realize it actually runs faster at around 80 fps in the lobby.

Attempted Solutions:
i’ve reduced worker count, tried running as administrator (both the launcher and the game), disabled fullscreen optimizations, changed the high DPI settings, changed graphic settings to high performance, enabled FidelityFX Super Resolution 1.0 (which helped me get around 10 more fps), the game is on borderless, unninstalled and installed again but nothing seems to get rid of my problem.

My drivers and windows are up to date.
