The recent 4 days, from Monday to Friday i played some game during morning and evening. I my game crushed twice a day, sometimes three times. I usually play ~15 games a day before sleeping. Nearly 14% of my game crushed.

Most of them happened in the morning with Asian players (I’m in NA). Not sure if the crushes were due to the server issue/network connection issue …

And most of them happened when I was booming, not microing any units at all.

PS. on 7.16 I had 2 crashes (out of 5 games I played) . 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon (just now)

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:
Not sure



Another 2 crushes after I post this thread. Some common scene is the berry. Like when I select the forger or berry the game crushes (not 100% sure)

I read somewhere on Reddit or this forum that you should restart the game after a few games. I started doing it. Crashes reduced, but still happens.

Thanks. I’ll do that.

Ironically, after this post, my next game just crushed …

what i did :
i disabled lots of windows services and uninstalled lots of bloatwares
i changed some settings of the battery, to “high performance” (not energy economy)

what i do before everygame :
i close everything (web browser, …)
i disable windows real-time protection

it reduces frequency of crashes, but i still got some … (often because real-time protection reactivates itself automatically, but not only)

the last patch did create some new crashes i did not get before, i solved one of them by unlogging to xboxlive
