What happened with the graphics? Edit: DICE is aware of this issue and investigating it.

The graphics looks completely different like it was before the patch. It was way more beautiful. I play on ultra settings, it was beautiful, and now it looks like medium. So the graphics optimization means they just made the graphics uglier so everybody got higher fps? Im very disappointed with the graphics now, compared before the patch.

    Well that's what "optimisation" is - they reduce load on the engine so it runs better.

    I always laugh when people think there is some "magic" in the code than can get you something for nothing. When have you ever heard of that in life?

    It's just the best optimisation, does it in ways you don't notice. Things like complex varying LOD on distant textures are a fantastic example of this.

    It seems on this occasion, the things they have lowered to gain performance, you have noticed. The best advice is to not go looking for it.

    I don't think so. Looks like textures resolution was reduced and they added fxaa to everything, even with AA turned off. I can't get any clarity with the image. looks like I'm running 900p on a 1440p monitor.

    Performance is alot worse here too.
    More on the spot loading, creating dips to 45 fps, never had that before, playing on medium.

    WTF

    I honestly didn't notice any difference in graphics or performance. I could run the game with my frames uncapped. Granted, I only had time to play a couple rounds after the patch went live. I guess I'll see more tonight.

    Its very noticable in 1080p monitor too. Some people just didn't notice it for some reason. But my eyes are very sensitive for this kinda stuff.

    Thats great if the game runs better but now it runs worse , my game is a juddery flickering mess , there is one thing tweaking things to get a performance boost there is another tweaking it and causes nothing but problems
