Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

  • Due to AMD’s poorly optimized OpenGL driver, you may experience slowdowns.

It is demanding, especially for Radeon cards due to poor drivers for OpenGL on Windows. You can try consider dual boot Linux (e.g Ubuntu) to gain ~3x more performance.

You can also turn off combat animations so you just see the 2D icons of characters fight.

how do i turn it off ?

From the options menu on the battlefield.
