Alright, so I do not know if I am the only one who is facing this but at least I am certain that it renders the game utterly unplayable. Whenever I spawn / respawn I will be facing like 3 minutes of random stuttering, and it occurs during fights (like 1vs1 encounters). I used to play the game months before Mercury has deputed, and I can't recall facing any performances issues such as the aforementioned one. Now, however, it seems like a total mess.
I am running on a GTX 1070, i7 4770 and 8GB of RAM. (Yes, I know. They are not the best specs but I used to have a great, smooth gameplay sessions at ultra settings and now everything is garbage. What went wrong?)
