FPS Drops and Performance issues after post anniversary update


Before and during this years anniversary event, my game was playing perfectly fine. After the event ended, the update that followed has DRASTICALLY decreased performance, dropping to as low as 90 fps during and before gunfights. I normally can run around 150+ before all this started happening. Any help is appreciated.

Yup same. It’s like Overwatch will run smoothly, no kick outs or interruptions for like two weeks then it’ll go back to running like garbo. Then they say “don’t play the game,fix your internet”
Excuse me?
There’s nothing wrong with my internet looool, it never went down and my other devices are staying connected. The devs on overwatch are efin rude. I always get great feedback from people over on WoW.


Same. It’s seemed to have been fine this entire year until just recently. Now back to FPS drops and general stutter a few times a match. To down right awful performance in huge team fights. Just like all the other times since release I imagine it’ll magically get fixed until they screw it up again with another update.


Yeah I just noticed today that I was getting really bad fps drops randomly in the game. It would go from a smooth 90 fps and drop anywhere between 20-40 during team fights. Really sucky when trying to do comp.
