@Weskeress I did. I play on the highest settings, so I changed accordingly. But the game still has FPS drops.... sometimes clicking the ... doesn't even work. Neither does going into World mode. It's crazy how this problem has been around for SO long and EA hasn't bothered to do anything. But they ARE throwing out packs like it's nothing. Starting to look like a cash grab for me.

Re: [CURRENT ISSUE] Incredibly Low FPS when connected to Internet

@JeanVW  The issue @Weskeress reported sounds somewhat different than yours, which is different still than the always low fps when connected to the internet that other players report.  So I'm not surprised that this particular workaround didn't help you, although it was of course worth trying.  Part of the problem is that low framerates can have so many different causes, many of which are certainly or probably issues with the user's hardware or software and not the game per se.  It can be difficult to disentangle all the different causes, much less address all of them separately.

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.

Yeah.. I'm sorry it didn't work for you. I was just excited to share the "fix" with others as this game has had frame drops when moving around / rotating camera since I started. I thought it may have helped at least a little for some others. I'm sorry about the internet issue. I don't seem to have that thankfully it was just the level of detail issue that objects had to kept "rendering" which caused the drops when moving around. Now with the fix they're always rendered which stopped the drops.

That's ok. I comfort myself with the fact I'm not the only one experiencing this. The thing that baffles me, is that it's been around for some while now, but it's clearly not an easy fix. Or I'd reckon there would have been a fix from EA.

Hello @JeanVW 

 

The team has not been able to reproduce this issue thus far.  It will be difficult to fix unless we're able to see the issue ourselves, unfortunately.
