Hey guys :-)
I'm a returning player (after quitting the game 1 year after launch - had a lot of fun!). Now I wanted to play some GW2 for old-times sake but for some totally weird reason the gaming laptop I've bought for 900 bucks like 2 years ago runs this game much worse than the laptop I owned at launch! Right now all settings are Medium or worse and the best fps my laptop can put out is 23-30 (don't even get me started on cities!).
Worth noting as well: My internet connection has improved dramatically as well. I never have any problems with any game besides this one (on PS4/Switch as well) which makes me belive that my laptop is the culprit here.
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7300HQ CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50GHz
