Hey everyone!

Just wanted to pop in and confirm that we definitely made some improvements to these issues in our latest update. However, we aren't where we need to be yet and we are still working to make even more improvements.

Glad to see these issues have been resolved though for some of you folks.

Thanks for the reply (and thank you for the noticeably increased BW presence all around)! I'm glad to hear that it's possible that my improved experience might not be just a one-time thing.

And I'm glad that more work will continue to happen towards this issue. Because while I did not CTD, I did experience a rather significant frame rate drop over time. Don't get me wrong, I'd much rather have decreased frame rate than experience a CTD. But I do hope that such improvements are still on their way.

Thank you, and nice job BW!

Since i Upgraded to windows 8 recently I have had no memory issues, i still get the random "where did the game go" moments but all in all windows 8's extreme control over system resources helped alot. So hoping with the additional changes they made it will be even more stable now.

What is this "extreme control over system resources" of which you speak?

I was under the impression that Win8 was a mega hog of resources with all the useless features that are tablet/phone friendly but not PC friendly...

Educate me.

I can confirm as a long time sufferer of the latency drops that this issue has vastly improved for my gameplay.

My thanks to the techs who rolled up their sleeves and tackled this issue.

1. "extreme control" is in Win8. Do some research, suggest MaximumPC mag for a good start.

2. "mega hog" it is not.

3. "useless features" are restricted to the new "Start" page, which you can turn off with one of many programs out there, I use ClassicShell and never see the "Start" page unless I want.

Wait Im confused. You guys have been telling people for months that the issue is on our end and advising us to contact our ISP. Are you now saying that the issue is on your end, and that you have improved it, yet are still working the issue?

Actually your statements in multiple threads indicate that you like acting like a know it all and love to lord it over others, but I digress.

I think the crashes being refered to here are likely the ones affecting 32 bit OS, if this is the case this will be good news for alot of people affected by this.
