    And another great tip, always shoot hatchlings like the guy above on sight.

    They just can't help themselves, they have to take a dig at the game itself as a parting shot in addition to the rest of their polemic. "Who'd want to play that poopy game for stinky doo-doo heads ANYWAY?" :lol:

    Anyone have any idea how long queue times are in Europe? I'm not waiting 5 minutes for a game where I will get offed in 2 minutes.

    Depends on the map, mode & squad size. If you're planning on running solo you probably won't get any queues longer than 2 minutes.

    I think that rule applies to all players. :D But having played a bit I get why hatchlings can be annoying. Besides I have moved on to the economic AK start kit for my PMC. One thing I have to congratulate devs on are the sounds and detecting other players via it. Having good earphones pays off.
    But yeah it's a great moment when you gon in with almost nothing, have a fight and then extract half dead with top tier equipment.

    strong new laptop
    big new engine update that supposedly fixes all the performance issues

    install today, play. Still runs like shit. Still has annoying dips and freezes. Welp fuck this game. I mean ffs, insurgency standstorm is widely regarded as unoptimized and i can run that on high detail anywhere from 70-110 fps depending on the intensity of the scene, and here I'm struggling to keep this above 45 fps with most shit turned off. The absolute worst thing about modern gaming is ridiculously unoptimized games that still look like shit.

    I'd press X to doubt that you're on a "strong new" laptop.

    I'm on an i5 that's 8 years old now, and an RX 570 and the game runs with mostly 60 on medium-high.

    That doesn't make sense, all my parts are inferior and I have good performance. Are you playing off an SSD or an HDD?

    it appears my performance issues were mostly related to the AI in offline mode. I played an actual match and was getting 50-60fps at customs on ultra settings with excessive nonsense turned off (post process shit and reduced draw distance because lol when are the devs ever gonna let you see more than a kilometer with this shitty fog?). Still, im a bit pissed i cant get 60+ consistent on this hardware. The main thing that is annoying me now is the sharp momentary FPS drops, especially when aiming down sights (just with ironsights, not even a scope wtf!). Anyone know how to fix this shit?
