    Don't count on it. Looking at the new optimization post, they still "Buttoning everything up and hoping to get it out this week".

    ugh that wasn't the answer that i waited for :'(
    can't wait for it , i get in massive fights like 7-10 FPS and game crashs every 30 mins i just had enough , all i need is 15 FPS and i will be fine.

    Hold out just a bit longer GearsOfWar! You can make it!

    I have the same problem with FPS as you.
    100+ Battles = 5-10 FPS without the patch
    100+ Battles = 35-40 FPS with the Patch! <----- It will be amazing.

    No one knows for sure.

    We know yesterday they were working on fixing the hitching issue, and last night there was a Massive playtest on PTS, so we'll see what they say today.

    Damn I thought I was in bad shape with my high teens low 20s fps in major battles.

    Since they are probably going slip a couple days off the Wednesday deadline, and are trying to avoid releasing major patches just before the weekend (due to past mishaps)...

    My money is on Monday.

    I wish I had 20 FPS in major battles.
    I cannot tell you how amazed I was dropping into the test server and seeing a stable FPS of 35-40 in a large battle. It brought tears of joy to my eyes. :')

    Hopefully the FPS improvements will bring more players back as well :)

    I got around 40-70 FPS in big battles after I upgraded my computer, and 90-140 at the WG. I wonder if I'll be able to touch 200 come the optimization patch!

    I know for a fact that it will bring in a lot of players. Every online game I have played has a large influx of players around major patch times (Ex. New Content, Events, OPTIMIZATION).

    The real question is, will they stay?

    With the performance jump that I have had on the test server, I believe it will keep them. A lot of people have left because the performance is so terrible, other's want to play so badly but cannot because of poor performance. I believe this patch will definitely get these people back in the game.
