Try the upcoming patch if you have problems with your performance.
There are some fixes in it which might help.
I don't play as much as I used to, but I played enough Mid Wars to notice they completely redid the art assets on the Mid Wars map, after 4.0. No performance issues.
My framerate became more stable by putting Anisotropic Filtering at 16x instead of Trilinear. May sound odd because you would expect to have higher requirements of your GPU. I still have drops to 30/40 sometimes. But overall my performance increased, it runs pretty ok now. I am still going to get a new graphics card, I just want to play HoN at very high with 60 fps. Just buying new graphics card for HoN ))
Well here I am again guys. I just received and installed my GTX 1060 and it runs pretty good. I am still surprised that I get drops to 40/50 FPS in busy teamfights. I think HoN engine causes this, and not my PC. The game runs smooth now at max but still. With a GTX 1060 and I5 6600 I should have 60 FPS at all times right?
I just had my framerate drop to 31! 31, with an i5 6600 and a 1060 GTX. Frostburn? What is this?
I don't think this is caused by my PC. Everything runs as it should be. And I'm not saying HoN runs like total crap. But still having choppy/laggy plays at some moments when it gets very crowded. I think something IS wrong with HoN engine.

My performance in 3Dmark is kind of what you would expect (average) when compared with similar systems. Can anyone tell me how or why HoN is so laggy nowadays? I think it started with HoN 4.0
I cannot just be the only one having this? Because I don't see a lot of complaints.
I have been having serious lag spikes when casting some abilities, for example DM's W, Chronos R, Pyro's Q n W, Bubbles Q. But it is interesting that when I try to cast Bubbles Q the game keeps running smooth. Tried to solve the issue thought Support and they never found it.
I think the issue is related to the cast indicator, but I dont have the enough information/knowledge to confirm that.
I'm just curious - but since OpenGL finally got rid of the graphic glitches - does the framerate with OpenGL suffer as much? You can switch it under windows and shouldn't see any difference (I think).
Also watching replays is VERY laggy to say the least, for me it is. I don't know how or why. And it is not because of the fact I am running 2 instances of HoN, because this happens sometimes.

The graphics look different with OpenGL. Not as good, but I think that it will give me a good performance. But DirectX9 definitely gives better quality of models and effects.
Maybe HoN is a heavier game than I would have thought. I do think that the game looks great nowadays, so it makes sense to me in that respect.
With everything at highest settings AF and AA at highest etc. you simply need more than a GTX760 to run this game well. Therefore my 1060GTX is good enough.

maybe patch 4.0 corrupted some settings, try clean reinstall, also delete the hon folder in documents
your PC should easily run it without problems, but patch 4.0 has also improved graphics quite a bit so its more taxing on the system.
what FPS are you getting when just sitting in base doing nothing? on DirectX

Maybe I can give it a try. But I installed Windows + HoN just recently. But I installed a new GPU in my system so, maybe it's best to do a clean install again. But I don't expect to get really better performance with that.
(i have vertical sync on) to prevent "tearing". It also remains 59/60 when someone is farming woods. Or when two people are laning. But when a major teamfight commences, or when a tower push commences, then it starts to drop to 45/50. But I measured 31 too last time. Kind of low for a GTX1060 and i5 6600?
I don't feel that my GTX 1060 gives me THAT much of an improvement than the performance I had with a GX 760...maybe my CPU is a bottleneck? But I find that hard to believe.
Maybe, like I said, HoN is a heavier game than you would expect at first.
Other than that, game looks great, and better than Dota2 and LoL if you ask my opinion.

No, honestly. I think the performance SUCKS. I cannot get arouns the fact that I buy a graphics card of 289 euros to complete my new system, and I get this performance in HoN. And more frustrating the fact that Frostburn never replies or acknowledges or even tries to help me with this. Yes, I know theres a support section, but it's a GENERAL problem if you ask me
