The PC patch has been fully deployed. Please keep us posted on PC performance as we're hoping the patch made some headway.


FYI: there's also a small bug causing longer than intended cooldowns for Character Challenge Keys. This is being investigated



Hey PvZer's Standard smile


The PC servers will be down from 11AM PT, up to 2PM PT on October 8th, while we roll out fixes aimed at the stutter issue. 


Please check back here for updates on this or keep an eye out on our Plants Vs Zombies Twitter account to track this

Out of curiosity, does addressing the shutter also mean it will help with the very heavy PC load some are having with the game?

The game-play feels substantially smoother. I withheld from playing the game due to the stuttering issues, but since this patch I can actually play a game where I can fight back my opponents. While I did see some slowdown, my game-play experience feels much better. I am just slightly disappointed I missed multiple weeks of pleasure.
