Super Slow

  • I don't know where else to put this, but this game is completely unplayable for me and I don't know why. I can play high-end games on pretty high quality, but when I try this it runs at about half speed. Everything is sluggish, even in the tutorial, and I felt so guilty even attempting PvP. Even the menu screen is slow compared to people I see streaming. I'm on low settings as it is. Don't know where to find PC specs but when this game might have higher specs than things like XCOM or Paragon, something's very...weird. Is there a way to speed up the game? I already put it on high priority from task manager.

    Do you have an internal graphics card and high end? If so you may need right click on the game and launch with the high end graphics card.

  • I have the same problem and I tried to launch the game with the high end graphics card but the game is still slow. any other solution? .thanks in advance
