To summarize, it appears that the "Total War: Rome 2" Patch 2 beta doesn't fix two of the main  main issues that have marred the game for many: low frame rates and crashes.

It's worth nothing that the "Total War: Rome 2" Patch 2 beta is just that: a beta. When the "Total War: Rome 2" Patch 2 beta was released, Creative Assembly cautioned that those concerned about encountering more issues or not being satisfied with the patch should wait for the full release.
