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...

Super old post bump, but I would still like to see some optimization to this, because having an EV is literally the only source of FPS drops in this game for me.

Same for me :( This is so frustrating. I have a GTX 1070 and i7 6700k and the game is always at 60-62 fps pretty much no matter what, but when I'm looking at my friend's reflection beams the fps can drop down below 20!? I can also add that my friend has a GTX 1070 with an i7 6700k aswell but he has no issues at all...
