I’m making this in hope that some people that have the problem i had might appreciate this information or do something with it.
I’ll first describe the problem i had with the game so you can identifiy if you have the same thing or not.
In the game i had random FPS spikes or Screen freezes(way more often that the fps spikes) that made me miss skill shots and abilities in general in crucial moments numerous times. Whenever something happened on the map, Keep destroyed, objective spawning, Tier level aquired(4,7,10 etc.) shutdown etc. i got the Screen freeze for a bout a 1-2 second.
Keep in mind i do have a good computer:
GTX 1060 6GB
Everything is up to date regarding drivers and whatnot.
This problem however didn’t occur in Training mode where I’m not connected to a server with other players, in only happened in matchmade games(Quick match, ranked, brawl etc.). Making this problem obviously network wise and not compatibility with my hardware/drivers or BACKGROUND APPLICATIONS(looking at you GMs)
What fixed it for me:
I switched Internet Provider, obviously i didn’t change my provider just because I wanted to try if it would fix it, it was just a happy “accident” when i found out the game actually runs smoothly finally(from one session that i had so far).
Do whatever you want with this information, I’m not really a network guy so I don’t know whether the problem is on Blizz’s side or providers, but i know a few friends that have similiar problem.
I did try to fix this before without any outcome, making research from other players making similiar topics and made one of my own aswell, each one of those got reply from a GM that didn’t help at all. General reply like “Update drivers” “Close background processes” etc.
Not replying again after people checked those things…
