Ive noticed it seems to change on the character selection screen at times ill log in its at 30,60 or even 100-110. its rarely the same on next log in i used to have an old computer to play oblivion my gpu was good but the cpu was anciant when i was stood still i was fine but when i had to load anything in another areas or even walking forward i would lock up stutter and freeze im getting the same with this game expect this time my cpu isent outdated its not the best but it runs everything else right now. we cant compare to WoW due to the age gap is huge but like everyone else i also run it at 60+ on ultra dx11. i tryed skyrim i was using 700mb on my video card just on the loading screen and gets up to 1000+ in game. This game stays at around 300-400mb when the game is running at max i have changed affinity from 4 down to 1 i noticed no changes tells me my cpu is not working at even duel core its just using the 1 core. The most up to date drivers all the little temp fixs with shadws etc and really nothing has helped enough. gone from 1920-1080 to 800-600 and its not easy to change my resolution ether have to do it in window mode. lowred every setting to off/none the only change i get by 10 fps is shadows. So i think i can say there is nothing more i can do at this point and i have to agree with some of the other posts after the 30 days ill also be done with the game its a shame because i like it. And the people telling others to upgrade even most of the people here outdo minimum specs so they should be able to run it at low with 30 fps and the people with high end rigs REALLY should be able to but no changes at all bar the shadows. As for people who want draw distance bar that wont fix anything ether if there is no change from low to high it may fix problems to the people who do see a change when they lower there setting but wont help for the people seeing no change. ive been looking over the fourm for 4 days now and tbh im bored now. 150+ pages cant be wrong most of us are saying the exact same thing and yes ive been here since page 1 seen every page lol.

It really makes no sense at all as it seems I should be running really consistent and smooth FPS.

I am running:

Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.20GHz
4 GB of memory
NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M with a Gig of dedicated memory

Not great but not bad for a two year old or so laptop.
I'm running the same specs as you my friend. I did get a cooling pad for my laptop and it does not run around 5-10fps but it still jumps from 20 to 60 to 20 at random times

This is imho the most important issue to fix in upcoming patches; performance is key, expecially in Warzones.

try turning off shadows in video options. That did the trick for me. I saw a massive improvement

Thanks for commenting, this is all we want from BW, to be informed. Just keep us updated on a regular basis

on a side note, I do hope the devs understand that this is a critical issue and should be one of the highest priorities as this really makes the game unplayable.

I am too experiencing severe fps issues even though my specs are way above recommended.
Nvidia, shadows off (guess there is not a single person who plays with shadows on... game looks much worse without them).
