EAC has been fully activated as of 188.8.131.52. This means that it scans your PC looking for active or recently usef cheat programs. While this stops some cheaters, this screws over legit players big time. It’s the same as when your PC does a scan for virus’. It uses your processing power to look through your system.
Before the recent patch, my FPS ranged from 90-130 on the below specs. Now with EAC hogging resources, my fps has dropped to 30-50, maybe 70 if I am inside with barely anything around. Microstuttering is also now present.
This is not worth how crummily the game plays for me now. I’d much rather you swap EAC for something that works like battleye, or just remove it. I really want to play and should I run into cheaters I do what I have already done in VT2: I leave the game and find another or host my own.
