There is still a severe framerate drop in games when lots of torpedoes are in the water. My frame rates are usually 60 FPS, which is the refresh rate of my monitor as I have Vsync on. However, when there are torpedoes in the water they drop significantly (to 34 FPS in the screenshot below). Perhaps something can be done about the torpedo wake graphics to lessen this occurrence.

Same here, except my old PC is even worse, I get single digits FPS...

I personally hate new torpedo wake, find it both unrealistic and not pretty at all.

Torpedo wake should mimic ship wake, same length to ship size ratio etc. The old one was much better, now its like someone is painting water with airbrush comb...

Perhaps there should be an option to turn some of the unnecessary visual effects down, or off? Like torpedo and ship wakes for example.

It just occurred to me that there is an "Old Graphics" mod in Aslain's pak that replaces shell splashes and other transient effects, perhaps wakes? with older low-res effects. 

Might be worth a try.

I keep getting this too. Takes about 8 battles before it starts showing up.  Restarting the client fixes it... but I keep forgetting and starting up another battle instead.

My very old laptop is doing great  but these FPS rates you speak of are only a dream for me your worst is double of my normal. A good day is 17 FPS.

However I don't see a lot of Lag my games run smooth or I am so used to this I don't notice.
