Has anyone tried COC with a whispering ice lately? That sounds like some grade-A cancer waiting to happen


Buddy of mine played CWC Icestorm, mostly tho in my hideout to annoy me
It worked like a charm.

I played a SR CWC Icestorm Ascendant in Bestiary. Didn't care about the 5 FPS, it could never die to anything, lol.

Always wondered how games like Black Desert Online can maintain great graphics while having good performance. Meanwhile PoE...

I think there was something mentioned that certain skills have more particles than originally thought and it was a bug. So they fixed it by modifying the animation a bit.

But Ice Storm is one of the stupid skills that hit a lot of stuff at the same time causing additionally the classic server lag/ buffered delays. Nice showcases are the CWDT Ice storm guys with poison capability - it just melts the instance servers :D

Let's cast some Icestorms:
15 fps



At the same time:
CPU utilisation is like 40%


GPU utilisation goes from 75% to 10%





Can you please fix this broken skill?


1. thats more than "some"
2. Its not a broken skill, the servers just cant keep up

More than one could be called "some".
That build in its current state utilizing like 70% of Icestorm's "lag potential"

There are no monsters around, nothing to calculate or sync except hit position. The skill works like that in forced predictive mode as well.
It's just a great synergy of purblind skill design and supplementary endless shitcoding over the years. So yea, it's broken.


Spoiler
I'm pretty sure party of six icestorm characters on a map with Legion monolith could not be handled even on 56-core Xeon setup.
