Possible workaround for performance dips!
Hello Bloodhunt Community!

During our Bloodhunt performance investigation we have identified a possible bug with our shader optimization process which is leading to all shaders not being properly optimized. When this happens, the game will instead attempt to optimize them at the moment that you trigger them while playing the game which leads to sudden performance drops for a few seconds.

As a workaround for now, if you run into these issues while playing, please do not change your graphics settings within the game and instead play the game for a few matches, you should see the performance issues appear less frequently until the game has had the opportunity to run into and optimize the remaining shaders until there are none left and you should no longer see any sudden dips.

We hope that this workaround works for you, and if not please do let us know.

Please note that this workaround applies to using DX12 only.

Thanks again for playing Bloodhunt Early Access, with your help we are confident that we can develop a great game!

So I just have to play a game without changing my graphics settings and that should fix it? Well, I tried that before and it did not fix anything. Is this workaround working only now, after the patch? Is it like a new addition? Thanks!

There is no command to force the optimization process on start? First few matches really feel more fps limited.
Or maybe we can delete shader cache somehow to make it remake itself under current settings?

Yesterday I tried to play, several matches, it slowed down and nothing helped. This was not the case before

How many matches do you have to play? I feel like performance these days is way better but that might just be because of playtime.

That's not really a "workaround", it's more like a common knowledge that "changing your graphic settings will very likely worsen the game's performance (until you reload the game)". And of course it won't solve the issues you have with your optimal settings :p

The entire match ran at 3 fps, your "workaround" absolutely blows

No .... İ am all ready did 100 match this week without touching a single option
Jumping , climbing = drop fps
Entering a big fight = drop fps
Sliding and jump from building to another some times also drop fps

I'm gonna say it like I see it - there are a lot of graphics settings which you could be turned down without really that much of a quality dip since the game is very fast paced and revolves around spotting your opposition. I'm on RTX 2080 + R9 3900x and the game struggles to keep 60fps at 1080p with all stuff set on High/Ultra, which is an issue since people are probably trying to run this thing in 4K with everything on High/Ultra and more than likely they're trying to run uncapped frames.

So as I'm done complaining, some solutions:
Maybe those Medium/High/Ultra settings need adjusting or implement some auto-adjust feature that will adjust to get 30/60/100+ fps.

After update my game screen is in waves and i cannot move my mouse to option menu - move is treated as end screen just 2cm form "option gear"

DX11 just runs better so no point to even use DX12 period
