From my understanding of this occurrence (based off a thread in the PTS) the optimization mentioned in the patch notes has little effect but downloading the game client from the server and not using a CD for the install causes the uptick in performance. I do not believe this effect is tied to the lag caused by particle effects and 1.3 should not impact this part of the game.

horrendous frame rates.

Ok, granted, my comp is a couple years old. A certain capturable neutral base area in another fantasy-based MMORPG that will go unnamed consistently had at least two full raid groups of 40 on either side and the same computer still got 20+ fps at the worst times. It was at least playable.

Last night, there were about 40-50 per side (that I could tell) but it wasn't even funny how bad the fps was. Is the Hero engine just that bad? Anyone with a new comp ever encounter that type of melee? Was the framerate really low for you too? One of the primary reasons I wanted to play this game, and the sole reason for going through three PVP servers was the idea of world Empire vs Republic PVP. I know people were complaining about Ilum but I haven't experienced it personally. Was this one of the main gripes?

The Epic part was the fact that 100ish people were all killing one another. That part was beautiful. Well, what I could see of it anyway.

Ilum performance was appalling which is why one of the first things they did was ban companions, however it made little difference.

Game engine's fine as long as people stay well away from each other, don't move and don't run any special effects.
