Happy New Year, Quakers!
We are releasing a performance update this morning at 10:00 EST / 15:00 UTC that should address performance issues some players may have experienced since the December Update. Patch notes:
If you’re on LOW or MEDIUM settings in the main menu, the menu uses MEDIUM texture settings ( otherwise, it’s based on your settings ). This will help min spec players that reported very high memory usage and long load times.
In-game, texture quality for all things in the world will now obey the users texture settings ( ex: if you have your settings to LOW, then champions, weapons, the world itself, etc. should all use LOW texture quality ). This will help min spec players with 2 GB video cards, and overall performance.
To get the most benefit out of setting everything to LOW, you should set your Video Resolution to 720, and turn OFF Gore.
Estimated time until the servers are back up: 13:00 ET / 18:00 UTC. Thanks Quakers!
