So after several months hiatus away from this gem I finally pluck up the resolve to start a new game afresh.
Once I get to around realm depth 10+ (basically around the time you are running a full 6v6 and spreading enough buffs and debuffs around to load the screen up with icons and effects) the lag becomes unbearable.
FPS skipping, performance settings toggled and turbo enabled - nothing makes battles bearable. The lag is incredible on my Samsung S5 and in all honesty renders the game practically unplayable.
Whats happened? I dont ever recall it being this bad before. It quite literally brings salty tears of sorrow to my eyes
