Issue: Audio tearing leading to total cut-out of audio and input delay
Screenshots: NA, audio issueShip: AnyMap: AnyOccurrences: Every time I play, in the last ~3 weeksTested: Reproduced every timeSeverity: Unplayable, stopped playingDetails:
I've started experiencing the same issue as a few other users have reported (http://forum.worldofwarships.asia/index.php?/topic/6989-sound-tearing-bug-open-beta/)
However my issue get progressively worse during gameplay. The audio will be fine at the very start of a match then deteriorate from there to the point where a couple of times my audio has actually cut out all together am i'm playing in silence.
I have previously had no issues on the same hardware and believe this has started as the result of a patch.
Accompanying the audio tearing is a sudden drop in FPS from 50-75 to <10.
I thought the cause may be the onboard audio but I have just purchased an external USB sound card and disabled all other audio devices, with the same result.
I have also tried reducing my graphics settings significantly from where they started and initially had no such audio problems

Temps of CPU and GPU during gameplay are fine and utilisation is also OK (CPU never hits 100%, GPU occasionally hits 99% but not corresponding to audio tearing). In fact when the framerate drops, the GPU utilisation does too, which seems counter intuitive.
This is now severely affecting my ability to play/enjoyment of the game.
