FPS Loss in Wz's

I5 4670
1050 Ti
Windows 10
8 mb


Everywhere outside of Wz's I get 120+ fps on ultra. In Wz's I start out at 120 FPS and by mid match I'm down to 30-50. Also, there is no diff if I'm at the lowest settings or on Ultra. I make sure nothing is running in the backround, and set the game priority to high. I just don't get it... it's unplayable.

I put my rig together close to 5 years ago..
I'm running an i5 3470-3.4Ghz processor, GTX 560Ti, 16GB RAM, 256 Gig SSD and a 750w power supply.
I set my in game graphics pretty low and i average 120-150fps in fleet and in WZs.
I can raise my graphics settings up pretty high and still get 50-60 fps but it puts my GPU usage at 100% and the extra juice draw tends to overload my battery backup so i choose to keep my settings low.
On occasion I'll get lag that isn't graphics related but more of a network path issue.
I think BW did some backend tuning on their graphics in the past year to address certain lag issues.

They did adjust things to take more resources from the graphics card than it used to. But there is so many bugs in the system now that the game can have FPS drops and you can also have lag when you shouldn't. Both FPS and lag don't mutually go together when trying to determine the issues in performance.

BW figured out there was holes in the bandwidth, I think some servers stretch out so badly from beginning, server like Fatman ect because of high pop servers.

Thanks for the video links etc...

I dunno, I did all ya'll suggested and I even did the registry edits. I think it's either a memory leak in the game engine or you HAVE to have a godly processor (i have an i5 4th gen).

It doesn't make sense that from the settings on Ultra to Very Low I only see a 5-10 fps diff in Wz's. It also doesn't make sense that I start the WZ around 150fps and within 2 minutes i'm down in the 30-50 range. In operations i never drop below 60 even in 8 man raids.... I dunno... it's really depressing, One of my Favorite games of all time and I've spent a LOT of time on it in the past 3 or so weeks getting a char to 70 etc..... I already spent $250 on a new GPU just to play this game. Dunno if it's worth dropping another $300 into a new processor on the "chance" I can actually function in PVP. I know this has been an issue since launch, it's one of the reasons I stopped playing 3 years ago. This is the 4th mid to high end machine I've tried to pvp on with the same issues. Sucks.

getting another 8 Gigs of RAM might make a difference for you. That is, if it's financially feasible for you?

You welcome mate, and I am sorry your having problems.

My advice current even with my videos is, have 8 gigs of ram but if you can spend more and have 4 slots go 16 gigs. Run Razor Coretex, and dim graphics down.

To be frank 40-60 fps is not bad, when you deep in 1-10 then you see a huge lag spike of crap...
