After late May patch, game is constantly just freezing. As if disconnected but no notice & it's happening for most games

After the latest May patch, the game keeps freezing. As in disconnecting or something, and the game is lost. I’ve lost about 100 ELO ranking points now to games like this cos it’s happening in almost all my games. It’s basically unplayable at this point. It’s weird cos it’s like it’s a disconnect but doesn’t give you the ‘you have disconnected… save restore has been made’ notification. Nothing. Just frozen screen (you can move round map and chat, but no reply of course).

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem: Just playing any game, at some point it will likely come up frozen (as if severe lag or someone disconnected or paused) and then never change. The game’s gone. It’s likely a disconnect but then nothing is notified and other person doesn’t chat back.

Attachment here shows what it’s like. You can move round map (w/fog of war), and chat, but it must be disconnected cos no reply from any opponent. It’s very frustrating as it didn’t happen before the latest patch, and it’s in most games, making it unplayable right now.
