Windows 8 and WoW.

Does windows 8 really f*ck WoW over? I've used it for awhile, with my new computer, and I keep getting random lag spikes down to 1-2fps which are computer-wide, just because I'm playing WoW. Anyone else with Windows 8 getting this problem?

I suspect that is your problem.

Both ATI and Nvidia offer Windows 8 support now and although very few games do most will run as long as you have the correct and up to date drivers, I know many people who can play WoW with no problems on Windows 8 consumer preview including myself, I suspect your problem is being caused by the fact your using a third party operating system.

Thanks, I suspected something like that. I'll just switch back to Windows 7 for the time being, makes it all simpler.
