This game needs to be optimized for laptop. I've lowered all settings and spent hours optimizing it in my computer settings to give it max power and i can only get 60 frames for one game before my entire computer starts crawling like a baby. I have to restart my computer to even be able to use it properly after just one game on all low settings. I can run fortnite and other games no problem even with apps like premiere pro open and no lag but this is the only game running and it still can't perform.
Sorry to say @SwitchFright but if your specs are not enough to run the game then you will run into issues.
Do you have a DxDiag that we can take a look at to get an idea of your specs: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/pc/how-to-gather-dxdiag-information/
