Before i go deeper in to the materia i have to check my on PC and try some optimizations, that why i won't post my configurations right now. My first question is if others experience performance issues as well. I started with high details and it was almost unplayable. With Middle it was still bad and laggy and now with low i can at least play skirmish. Usually my PC should be up for it, but maybe the game isn't perfectly optimized yet. I am not saying it to offend someone, but because i experienced it in the past in a lot of RTS titles. Rome 2 or Empire Total War are the best examples that the Games became unplayable when to many units are on the field, no matter how high end you PC is.

So first question, am i alone or experience others the same?

Please post your PC specs, this helps the Developers.

I am playing on win 8.1 64bit with 6GB of ram and two 1 GB video cards SLI'd together. On Medium settings (resolution at 1900X1200) the game is very smooth. I have not tried the other quality settings yet thoe.

Some on laptops have, but for the high end laptops it's because the game was defaulting to the Intel chipset and not the dual gfx nVidia chipset

Zero performance issues for me on high settings, it runs smooth with no lag even during combat and most maps load in under 3 seconds.

PC Specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X6 1090T Processor (6 CPUs), ~3.2GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti

I've got terrible performance too. At most time it's near 30fps, sometimes drops to 20-24.

Win7 x64
i5-3470 @ 3.20Ghz
8 GB RAM
GeForce GTX 670

I've refreshed drivers but it's still pretty bad performance for unity-based game.
P.S. Also interface looks like it scales wrong - a lot of roughness on text and icons.
