People joke that you can run this on a toaster but actually the game is quite demanding and very poorly optimized.
For some reason y’sera the awakened always lags the hell out of my client when she is played, for reference I can run games like modern warfare or red dead redemption 2 without so much as a single hiccup.
This should be a feature, not a work around. A cards animation shouldn't be factoring into the gameplay at all. That being said, since it is a work around they should focus on fixing it first and then make animation skipping a thing.
