I've got an ATI 4870, Q6600 @ 3Ghz, 4GB RAM, Asus P5B Deluxe running on Win7 32Bit.

Every time a worm uses Teleport my FPS go from 60 down to 1 for about half a minute. What gives?

Same thing happens during level loading, it takes aaaaages to load.

Since this is rather a bug with the game, I suggest you report this on the Team17 forums or the Steam forums. – Gnoupi Aug 26 '10 at 12:26
Similar thing happened to me with Worms World Party - the longer I stay at the main menu the more my FPS drops. Despite having an uber gaming rig, after about 5 minutes it takes several seconds to see my cursor movement register. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Sep 2 '10 at 16:33
If you're running a Q6600 @ 3Ghz, you're doing some serious overclocking... the Q6600 is an Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz processor. – user2974 Sep 7 '10 at 21:21
@Powerlord: I know, so? My Q6600 can handle up to 3.2 GHZ with air cooling, but my Motherboard/RAM combination doesn't allow me to go for 3.2 GHZ without too high a CPU temp. i.e. I need higher VCore and other stuff to get my rig prime95 stable running 8+h. – NoCanDo Sep 12 '10 at 9:27
As for the problem, it's still there, and I stopped playing. Because the AI keeps using Teleport and I just can't bear waiting half a minute after each teleport to resume normal playing. – NoCanDo Sep 12 '10 at 9:29

It is an issue with the game, I actually have a similarily spec'd machine as you and certain things make the game run poorly, such as teleporting, or the gas that comes out of the skunk.

I also stopped playing it due to the frustrating lag, particularly during multiplayer.
