So there's always the debate between one man's "poor optimization" and another man's "future-thinking"
I usually fall on the latter side, and complain that not enough games are future-thinking with their system requirements.
That being said, that Crytek engine is simply unoptimized. There's no excuse for that engine to run so poorly. It makes Unreal Engine 4 look as efficient as Frostbite LOL. (Boarderlands 3 struggling to surpass 60fps @ 4k ultra even on an RTX 3080, yet somehow looking virtually identical to Boarderlands 10 years ago.)
Usually when someone complains about poor optimization on the internet, it's safe to assume they don't actually know what they're talking about. SC is surely be not be optimized at the moment, but there are a multitude of reasons for poor performance due to all of the changes they've had to make to the engine.
