2.5.2c Patch Notes

I can only say, like I said in the 2.5.2 patch notes, that I do not suffer from these issues.
My performance did improve a little on my high end system.
I most often stay between 140 and 200 FPS. Also it seems that the area loading times improved for me too. I've only had a few frame drops when opening a breach on a map with chilled ground.

Sadly I can't really help you others out with your problems. Only thing I can recommend is checking for hardware updates or messing with the graphic options.
I run my game in windowed fullscreen with multithreading enabled on DX11. I also do not use vsync and have post processing + screen shake disabled. If nothing works for you, try verifying the steam game cache or reinstalling.
I can't really think of more you can do except waiting for a fix.
I am downloading at 50kb or less / second while my internet is fine, no connection issues from my side....

Edit: Launcher somehow went slow and than speeded back up, took a little bit longer than normally for that size of a patch!

No man, it's not an hardware issu, the game was fine for everyone before the 2.5.2 and we are several people that experience issu, that dosent mean everybody is experiencing it, but since we experience it on good rig, without changing anything from our side, + the fact that its both on AMD and Intel rig its safe to say, something went wrong from at this patch :)
To provide the reversal of the patch, it shouldn't be that hard, should it? If the developers are using any kind of source version control which they should be because it is a good practice, they could simply checkout the old files before the patch and make them available to the players. Then simply make it a drag and drop onto the path of exile folder and the games folder.

Update: Apparently I was wrong. Encountered an issue at precincts map where somehow I kept dying whenever the game kept freezing. I have no idea what even happened, all I know is I started at full health, was near the boss, game freezes, suddenly I have 1/4 of my health, spammed health flask and then I saw the you have died. I literally couldn't dodge anything because the lag ensured the hit would always connect.

So the game is relatively unplayable on my end since this 2.5.2 patch and no improvements were noticed with the fix, did anyone find a way to make it great again? It was very smooth before 2.5.2.
I'm no longer able to get POE to launch after this update i'm running windows 10
I click the icon and it acts like its going to launch but never does

(edit)
I was able to fix this problem i had to switch to DirectX 9Ex from DirectX 11 beta

if you need to know the exact way i did this message me

After 2.5.2 for me PoE is unplayable. A lot FPS drops, latency and frame time is going crazy even standing still in my hideout. Hotfix 2.5.2c fix anything for me :C Died twice on 95 lvl (BSC) 20% exp lost hurts as hell.

Still getting huge frame drops when doing content, both with DX9 and DX11 (Same issue even with everything on highest and lowest graphic settings).

Breaches/boxes sometimes causes my PC to freeze for 1-6seconds. (Scary in HC!).

Sadly, this patch hasn't really changed the situation from 2.5.2. FPS and frame time are still all over the place and stuttering persists.

It would be really nice to have some detail regarding who the "some users" with "specific, relatively rare setups" are/were?
Considering most people reporting performance problems don't include their computer specifications, they must work off of a small sample of hardware configurations that are having performance issues.

Hint: Post your computer specs next time (or edit them in to the post I quoted).
Computer specifications:
Windows 10 CU x64 | Intel i7 920 @ 2.66GHZ | ASUS P6T Motherboard | 8GB DDR3 RAM | Gigabyte Windforce x3 Geforce 760 4GB | Corsair AX 760watt PSU

Unless it is all in my head, could we please get an option in the menu to run the DX11 version from before 2.5.2 (call it pre-2.5.2 DX11 or something)?

Having a second version of the DirectX 11 mode would make bug reports confusing, do you think most people would bother mentioning which mode they're using? It would also be extra code that has to be maintained as the game is updated. They would also need to ensure upcoming/new visual effects work correctly with the old DirectX 11 renderer in addition to the other renderers and make sure it works right.

You already have DirectX 9 Ex and DirectX 9. Just report your performance issues & hardware configuration, then choose one of those DirectX 9 modes and opt out of the DirectX 11 beta until a fix is available for your hardware configuration.
