Yeah, I don't know about anyone else but I've actually noticed a significant decay in performance in the last year or so, I'm guessing due to some of the changes they've already made to graphics. I've already had to turn most everything down to minimum levels to get even 20-30fps, and in huge battles that drops down to 8-10. (And yes, my machine more than meets the sys reqs.) What's interesting to me is that on the -same- machine, I was getting 30fps easily with most settings turned up about half-way when BC first came out. Nerf graphics, seriously.I appreciate that they are upgrading the visuals and coming up with some very pretty stuff, and for those of you who have up-to-date machines that's awesome. But many of us don't have that much disposable income--as much as I might like to get a new computer every 2 years there's no way I could possibly afford it. So I'm fervently hoping that they'll allow us to turn off a whole bunch of s**t so I'll actually be able to run Wrath in a playable way--especially if they increased the options for turning down details. It would be AWESOME if they allowed us to turn off things like fire effects or non-interactive NPCs (I'm looking at you, Shattrath guards), for example.Alternatively, if anyone wants to donate some $$ for a new computer, feel free!
