There's additional environmental ambience, like birds and stream noises, that I think are slowing it down a little bit for us "average computer" guys.
I go from rocking performance (50 fps) to terible (2-3 fps) when my Symantec decides to get busy, and I can't find a way to turn it off hard yet. That's my issue, not WOT's.
Yeah, reading up on what it takes to participate in the Clan Wars maps, I have little to no interest in trying to make that work. It would be fun if we were properly equipped, but since we're not, I'd rather we just schedule some time when we can fill up an ADV company and go roll around in the mud together. That's the fun of it, I think, and I think from what I've read, that's about how everyone else feels about it too.
Still waiting to hear about the sticker issue.
