Archives update made game unplayable


I have experienced pretty much every bug reported with the Archives update.

The patch itself took forever to download and was stuck at 0b/s during download, then when it finally downloaded, I couldn’t play because loading times tripled. When it does load, it takes half of a game’s duration for the characters to show up and when they do the performance is so bad I can’t really do anything.

Now, full disclosure, my computer sucks and I can’t afford a new one. But before this patch, I could play at 60 fps with the lowest settings and didn’t have any loading issues.

Thank you, I will try that.
