Insane FPS drop in the loading screen


After the new anniversary update, whenever I open the game, I’m getting around 60-70 FPS, but after the menu screen animations load in, my FPS drops to around 8 and it’s never done this before so, I’m a bit confused, and a bit frustrated since I am not able to play the game.

Thanks :slight_smile:


I am also having this exact issue. It’s bogging down my whole game and I can’t actually play. I go into game with like 8-11fps which makes it unplayable.


Hey ---- So I found that if I revert back to an older version of Windows 10 (basically the build right before this current build) it fixes all the FPS drop issues. It would appear that something in the new build is causing issues, so there is really nothing that blizzard can do.
