Hi guys. I closely followed the development of this game and I was so excited when it finally was released. In these years, the game changed much, mostly for the better, but there's always been a companion who never left me while playing and made my experience a real misery. This companion stuck to me worse than a over-caring Templar, and it is "STUTTERS". The stutters were present in the Beta. In Vanilla. In Ros. They survived countless patches, a file-system change a whole pc upgrade on my part. "Luckily", I was not alone: just type "Diablo 3 stutters" on google and you will have enough reading material for a lifetime. The issue is totally unrelated to the machine. I won't even post my specs (which are way above recommended) as there's people having analogous issues with top of the line machines with SSD. We tried countless workarounds, most of them being pure placebo. Some of us even tried to run the game from USB sticks, in order to reduce it. Frankly, I have come to the point that I am wasting more time trying solutions than actually playing the game. Here's a very small list of the stuff we tried: -Updated all drivers -Made sure the machine is free from viruses -Selective start-up -Defragged hard drive -Moved diablo 3 to a flash drive -Cleaned registry -Uninstalled virus protection and disabled firewall -Made sure cores were unlocked -Made sure bios was up to date -Disabled IntelSpeedStep in the bios -Disabled CPU thermal throttling in the bios -Changed power plan to high performance having the minimum and maximum cpu power set to 100% in the plan -Checked disc for errors -Reset bios settings to default -Changed countless settings in d3prefs as suggested in other threads -Reset nvidia control panel settings -Changed nvidia control panel power saving setting to high performance None of this worked. General consensus is that the game has some serious trouble loading the assets. Even sounds can cause stutters: my Templar yells something = half second stutter. The stutters also seems to be unrelated to monster density as they happen even while alone in town and browsing the inventory. On top of this, many people say that there's something terribly wrong the V-sync implementation. There's a sticky thread on B.net US and new threads keep popping very often. Same on EU, except that there's no sticky because EU is a wasteland. Other Internet sources are flooded by people complaining about this (es: reddit). So, what is Blizzard response on this? Nothing, they didn't even acknowledged the issue. I was wondering...could this site "sponsor" this problem so that the devs might finally notice it and do something about it?
