This game just still suffers from bad optimization, been a problem for me since beta. i5 and HD5770 are by no means high-end, but it should be good enough to get constant 60+ FPS in a game that, frankly, doesn't look all that great.

Funny enough with the 1.9 patch, and also the reason I hadn't been back to these forums, it was fixed. Game was hitting upper 70% on the GPU and was running like a dream on Ultra+ (+ being every slider over). Then they do another quick update and back to the **** house. This time it's worse. 25% max GPU load in a event. CPU, all cores, never going past 15%. This really needs to be looked at.

Even they have realized the amount of noobs that touch code is causing issues. They even figured out ways to allow programmers to create toggles for others to use so that others can make minor alterations without having to screw with the whole code and creating the **** storm of crappy titles over the last generation.
