Frame Rate and Performance updates listed are not being reflected in the game

I've read the explanation to the changes to Astral Evade listed here http://forums.playcontestofchampions.com/en/discussion/comment/426773/#Comment_426773

Fixing or changing how the game works without adding it to the changelog then back peddling that it's related to performance increases would be fine if true, but I'm experiencing the complete opposite. The frame rate is worse and the lag is worse. Instead of pointing me to the graveyard thread you created about lag (which I've already contributed to) and closing this thread, please take a moment to address what is actually happening with efforts to fix the underlying problems with game play which are reported every day.

    Parry timing really seems to be impacted by this frame rate adjustment. I've been thinking that I started to suck at playing this game until I found out that others are experiencing the same issue with parry timing.

    The change to evade and drax has nothing to do with frame rate. I don’t understand why they patched into that but there is no improvement and evaders now act differently when facing drax

    Yep, I was fighting a classic ultron in eq and the evade is totally different, so it's not just mordo's evade that has changed, but seemingly all evaders (which could actually be a good thing). Previously, drax was great against classic ultron because the guaranteed evade actually gave you an opening for a free combo- ultron evades the first hit of the medium, but gets caught by the second hit. This no longer works, and the evade pushes ultron much farther away. On one hand this is annoying but I think this also acts as a fix for many of the evade bugs, it doesn't seem like ultron will be able to attack while evading any more

    You are correct. The dash back is so far they can not auto counter but this appears to only apply to drax

    Yeah, the impact to parry is super annoying.
