[R]Game graphics lag/slow in specific game mode

I don’t remember the name of the game mode, but it’s the one where your team and the enemy team have 3 beacons, and when you die, your ship is eliminated, so you only get 3 lives.


Anyway, sometimes when I play that particular type of match, the graphics start lagging horribly. It has always occurred upon my ship’s spawn. The frame rate drops to < 10 FPS. The game still responds to input, just lags very badly.


I have around 30 hrs of in-battle time so far, and have only seen this occur in this particular game type. When I restart the game client the issue is resolved.


I have a high-end gaming system, so should not be anything hardware-related.

Please fill out the [report](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/6801-template-how-to-report-graphic-issues/) form.

FPS drops on some maps, namely: “Thresh hold”, “Eastern Mining Station” and “Destroyed stations”

I didnt have this Problem pre 9.8, there was a update on the maps a few patches ago, maybe its related to them.
