I'm in no way computer savy. But the last time I played this game in November 2012, I played on Ultra with no drop in fps performance below 50 or so. I come back today and I cant even play on high without falling to 30 fps. My laptop is not that old! I got it in June 2011.

Intel Core i7-2720QM 2.20GHz
8.00 GB Ram
AMD Radeon HD 6900M Series
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS

Update your video drivers. That laptop should still be able to run the game fine.

I swear I updated them last week. Unless what I did was wrong?

I had my system auto scan what driver I needed and then I updated them according to what the results came out to be.

I do however, recall an error message after installation that I didnt quite understand. Like I said, Im not computer savy

Go to AMD's site and find your video card and download the newest driver for that. Make sure the install deletes the old drivers. The autoscan doesn't always get you the most up to date files.

I heard there's been some major frame rate issues on Blizzard's servers lately, if there's any confirmation for that then that may be the issue.
I enjoy stupid topics like this one.

Ok so I attempted to find the driver that I needed

Apparently, I cant download it because it does not support the system I am using or something like that. I dunno, Im a bit confused

It's funny because I get 20 fps prior to entering the circle of doom, and after I enter I get to wait about 60 seconds til my screen flashes to my dead body at the bottom of the hole.
Like I've said before, Allies are like sand people; they scare easily but they will be back in greater numbers.
