    Hello, i have a problem which could completely ruin Empires' gameplay for me. I downloaded Empires 2.11 and now Empires gets a huge FPS drop every 4-8 seconds for 1 sec or less, from 60fps to 10fps. I noticed that happening when i tried the beta test of 2.11 too. Also this kept happening in Age of Chivalry when i played it. It's a problem that i really want to deal with. Please help me.

    Which server are you playing on?
    We've previously had issues with the animations on the default motd causing issues. There is a client command to use text motd instead of html but I forget what the command is (I'm posting from mobile so cant check for you).

    Do a quick google to find the command and report back. :)

    I used cl_disablehtmlmotd 1 and it worked, i don't get any FPS drops now, thanks! When i was trying out the beta i hosted my own server, and then i played on the Empires Beta Server, maybe the new default Empires motd was causing FPS drops.

    I'll change the default motd in the next patch so this doesn't happen again. Thanks for reporting this.
