Anniversary patch introduced 1 second freeze & speed up every 60-90 seconds

The anniversary patch seems to have introduced a bug where my game freezes entirely for about 1 second before immediately speeding up again. Prior to this update I’ve played close to 1,000 games without ever lagging and 0 drops. My connection is a consistent 160-180mb upload/download, I score a 1250+ on the graphics test every time.

This is the first time I’ve seen to have had a technical problem with the game, and it’s a complete momentary freeze which happens about once every 60-90 seconds. Sometimes I can make it to Feudal age before it kicks in, other times it starts in Dark.

Is anybody else experiencing this?


I could confirm this happens to me with Quick Play. Not in Ranked though.
