    This option reduces the resolution of the game world (but not the UI) in order to increase the frame rate of the game.

    At the lowest setting (50) you're basically rendering 25% of the world you normally render, resulting in a significant speed increase on some computers.
    so the ingame description would be something like:
    Choose the amount of Minecraft you would like to have in Rift.

    i'm not a big fan of making the world look ugly in order to get some decent fps.

    It honestly doesn't look that bad, gosh Pithos is trying to make your computer run better and you're complaining about a little pixelation?
    The only way that someone from Cluster 2 is actually as bad as you all say is if they started playing this game in 2.3 (Free to Play launch).

    I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

    Oh no - they're in San Fransico! Daglar, get out of there! That's where the Kajiu's attack!

    Do you think a company that cannot afford to keep a CM on the payroll will pay a bunch of higher paid engineers to optimize the game for multi-core support? I think not. I removed my Credit Card info from my account page. Talk is cheap. Closing your wallets will speak much louder. I'm sure they can track how many accounts have a valid/current payment method. Don't only voice your displeasure on the forums. Send a message via your Account Management page.

    So the performance "fix" is giving us an option to make the game look even worse? What on earth

    The game already looks aged when running on ultra, which is only possible on my i7 580gtx when I quest. Forget about doing it in a raid, or the horror, a world event

    It's going to look aged, the game came out 2 and a half years ago and has been in production for much longer.

    Of course it will, did you even read what I wrote? They want us to make the game look even worse instead of optimizing the game

    Oh well yeah with that, they want to optimize THE LAG not the GRAPHICS. More people are complaining about lag and low FPS than there are people crying about bad graphics.

    Turn players off for world events, it'll put my FPS up to close to normal for the Dendrome bosses and zone bosses.

    If I understand right from thread upon thread upon thread on engine improvements, its a major task, not something that Trion is capable of right now.

    How are you preparing for the "Rift still runs crappy on my Gateway computer from 1999" posts?
