Low fps after patch 1.36

Check my last comment please, same thing on your end?

Yes mate, if i select and put the mouse on my main : 50 fps - if i put the vison/mouse in the miuddle of the map : 180 fps

Yep, something is wrong around the main building which is causing the lags/fps drops/spikes. Let’s see if blizzard is even noticing that and listen to us or not.

The game is not running smooth after 1.36 anymore. Massive perfomance issues all game long. On this patch 1.36.20231 massive “spike like” behaviour is appearing. Particurarly units are jumping/ leaping forward. Cant control my units anymore. Aswell fps are dropping to 55, which should be usually still total fine for playing smooth.

Win 11, Ryzen 3600, RX6500 XT, 16 Gbyte.

Not having any “massive” performance issues or spikes. But overall FPS is lower than before the update. (maybe my ryzen 9 7800X is just too awesome)

Massive FPS dip. would get 130 before now drops to 50s and stutters. Never happened before patch.

just update its become worth and worth. i just had a ladder game fsp stutterin 50-70 fps. before it was smooth 300 fps. it was unplayable and felt super laggy. sorry

These hotfixes surely are fixing pressing bugs…

70 fps is not unplayable, and it wasn’t “laggy” unless your ping was also high.

Exaggerating the issue will not get it fixed faster.

You know what? Yes, they are. Matches constantly not getting recorded was very much a pressing bug that was ticking people off for as long as Ranked has existed. And F3 being rebound away from selecting the third hero was also very much a pressing bug. Tournaments being almost completely broken with invisible brackets was also a whole collection of indeed pressing bugs.

While the performance issues should be fixed, framerates dropping from “beyond what any monitor owned by a normal player can display” to “still higher than what most console games run at” is not, in my opinion, a “pressing bug.” I’m sure there will be another hotfix eventually to address this but calling it “unplayable” when that is an absolute falsehood is not going to pressure them to fix it faster.

@CaptainJack do not quote a portion of his symptom and misrepresent it.
heavySweater stated:
“just update its become worth and worth. i just had a ladder game fsp stutterin 50-70 fps. before it was smooth 300 fps. it was unplayable and felt super laggy. sorry”

He clearly states it is stuttering ranging from 50-70 FPS. He didn’t say that 70 fps was unplayable he stated it was stutterin causing FPS to fluctuate down to 50 FPS. This skipping or lag is the symptom countlessly mentioned in this thread. Your input again is not helpful. Do not minimize his comment

To him and 90 posts+ (-philosophical debate you are having in this thread), including myself, experience gameplay that is exceptionally choppy with this change in FPS to the point it is unplayable.

I’m not misrepresenting anything. 50-70 fps is not “unplayable,” I don’t care how much of a PC gaming elitist you might be. “lag” is an internet connection issue, not a graphical performance issue. “skipping” or “stuttering” is your system not drawing a frame to catch up or keep up, and thus NOT lag behind.

I played WC3 ROC on a minimum requirements system and it was not exactly great, but “not great” and “unplayable” are entirely different things.

This issue is being misrepresented / exaggerated by reporters to pressure them to fix it. It’s that simple. Is it a problem? Yes. But it is nothing like what it is being made out to be. I myself have also observed a performance decrease. But there is no “suttering,” no “lag,”, just a lower FPS number than I’m used to. It’s still totally playable with no technical hiccups of any sort.

There are people in this thread claiming they used to get 300 FPS and then they got 200-250 and called it “unplayable.” Most average gamers fantasize about having frame rates like that and play the game just fine with far slower performance.

Diablo II, either the original or playing Ressurected with the classic graphics, the game is fixed to 25 FPS and no one has ever had trouble with it. I’ve played that game for a decade and a half (at least) and I don’t know how anyone can play a game like that and then come and tell me that 50-70 FPS is totally unplayable.

I challenge the people using this word to please post videos showing how unplayable it is.

Your opinions on how severe someone’s experience is irrelevant noise.
Your experience does not speak for other Warcraft 3 players in the community. Life does not revolve around you CaptainJack and your PC specs.
There are others that play this game and they are experiencing symptoms to the degree they are provide feedback in this forum. Minimizing their input and feedback with assumptions is idiotic

Your post saying something like this is irrelevant noise. If you don’t have anything meaningful to say in response then there’s no point in saying it.

I’ve made no such claims, ever. In fact most of the other people here seem to have better systems than I do (I’ve never gotten 200-300 FPS in this game or most others for that matter). And yet somehow, I have no trouble playing with a level of performance everyone else here seems to be declaring to be “unplayable.” That word does not mean what these people seem to think it means.

I have acknowledged and recognized the issue countless times in this thread. It’s a real issue and I agree with that. What I’m taking issue with is people exaggerating the issue, as if they think it will compel Blizzard to fix it faster by making it sound worse than it really is.

It just sounds like a massive crapton of PC Gaming Master Race elitism. FPS dropping from 300 to 250? Let me get out my tiny violin…

The best way to get an issue resolved is to post about it calmly and honestly, not to sound the alarm bells and throw around buckets of hyperbole.

Jesus, What is wrong with you? The game is unplayable. If everything is fine for you then just leave us here alone :smiley: … Can you oberserve all of our computers and see that the game is running smooth? Most of us playing competitive 1on1’s and if some players having this issue and playing against players who don’t have it you can’t compete and even win. Stop telling us any non sense. The FPS drops mainly occur arround the main buliding. Guess they have changed something around the goldmines which is causing this FPS drops. Everywhere else on the map it seems to be more stable. They have changed something at the Nightelf Goldmine as there was a bug or whatever. Now it influences the entire game. Even if it is another bug, you can call it whatever you want. In fact the game was running smooth before the last patch and now it doesn’t so stop telling any non sense. The current status is that the game is broken for many of us.

If the game is that kind of broken they should just use the last working patch and fix the new one before they put it live again. That’s it. Just return to the last working patch.

The game is unplayable for you, maybe, possibly. It isn’t unplayable for me and the dozens of other players I’ve played matches with in game today.

“unplayable” is being used by you and others here as hyperbole. “unplayable” means literally, cannot be played. i.e. either the game doesn’t start at all or doesn’t accept your inputs or something extreme like that. Lowered performance does not make the game unplayable unless it’s like single digit FPS.

Less enjoyable, sure, I can accept that from someone if their FPS was <100 to begin with and now its like 30. But unplayable? Sorry, no. The game is not unplayable. At worst, if you’re having particularly significant performance decrease, it is less playable, not unplayable.

I never said “everything is fine.” I said myself, like ten times already in this thread, that I did notice a performance decrease as well. I want this to be fixed as much as any of you. But calling it unplayable is absolute BS. It is not unplayable, you’re all just making mountains out of molehills to pressure a fix.

It is unplayable on a competivie level. Do you get it now? If you drive the Formula 1 with an Opel Corsa you can drive the course, but you can surely not win it against regular racing cars. That’s what people here incl. me are telling. So stop talking this trash.

Sorry, I don’t buy that pros need 300FPS when even most of the best monitors on the market maybe do 200.

And frankly, if everyone is having the same issue, then realistically it shouldn’t affect competition as the playing field is still level.

I’ve not observed any of this. Just less FPS. and as far as I’m concerned a few random frame drops/stutters does not make the game “unplayable.”

Just do us all a favor and stop saying “unplayable.” Sub-optimal? Fine. Less than ideal? Fine. Unplayable? No.
