Series EV Beam lag
I generally get a solid 60 fps, nomatter the situation. Sometimes, if it's like nightmare tavern defense, it'll drop to like 50. However, whenever someone starts placing Series EV beams, I can say goodbye to at least 30 fps. Is this happening to other people too, or am I just insane?

And if it isn't just me, should I expect a patch fix?

Yeah. Literally, I'd pay $50 just to have this game be fully optimized.

Indeed, The crashes with the Linux build with the Series EV are anoying as hell it makes the game unplayable :-(

But Trendy need to patch this anoying bugs, sometimes the game is not stable.

If I were you I wouldn't hope much for bug and crash fixes.

runs perfect for me no matter how many beams I use so I think it is a hardware issue. I do find many people don't seem to join my games when I am playing EV though. Do you play on the lowest settings? Perhaps it just hasn't been optimised for all the settings properly.

Personally I am running 2x GTX 560s SLI on a quad core @ 2.9 GHz with 16 GB RAM and doubt it's a hardware problem. (If it comes up yes I tried disabling SLI :P)

I run a 5790 on a quad core @ 3.2 and only have 8gb of ram, never run into the issue once. Maybe its a driver issue? Sometimes the company isn't aware of an incapatibility issue with their hardware...?
I have no idea what would cause this issue, but it sure would suck, because EV is the ♥♥♥♥

Yeah. I built my PC. AMD FX 8350 Eight Core 4.0GHz CPU, and an XFX HD 7850 GPU. Definitely not a hardware problem, unless it has something to do with HDD speeds, considering I salvaged both of my hard drives from old external drives...

ev beams boost rate of fire if you using apprentice towers it can lag you hard its a known issue

their used to be a prank hacker would play were if you boosted rate of fire on a gun or tower high enough you could go in and crash players games for fun

Pretty sure most of us aren't talking about buff beams and AS...
