Major Lag Spikes - La Royale

I’m not one to take my issues all the way to the forums, but ever since La Royale released, I have been getting random lag spikes during matches that are making the game unplayable for me. Along with this, HDR has been looking washed since the update; the colors are not as vibrant as they once were. In the past, I have never had these problems and War Thunder has looked great and ran flawlessly on my system. Nothing has changed on my end. Anyone experiencing something similar or have any suggestions? Thanks!
