So finally I got into early access today in the 3rd wave, I log in the game and basically that's what I see...

I know I'm playing on a laptop with Intel HD graphics but I run games like WOW, Starcraft 2, Shogun 2, Counter Strike and others on low setting with no lag at all....kinda frustrating since I might have to cancel my preorder now...

All setting are on low, my graphic card driver is up to date and direct x is up to date as well....any ideas on a quick fix?

Depends how quick you can get to the store to buy a new CPU. jk.. Were you in the beta? Did you have this problem then?

Please describe your laptop specs in more detail.

This is a known issue with the Intel HD Graphics Media Accelerator Chip. You have to visit the Intel Download Center for the newest driver for your chip.

In case your laptop does not support a new Intel driver you have to contact your manufacturer for help.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused through this in the meantime.

I was a several stress tests and I didn't have the kind of problems I have now. I mean it is really bad. But, since I HAVE to play this game, I'm charging a new laptop. Yay going into debt! I'm living the American dream!
