Consistent crashes

Every game I’ve played today (out of like 8-10) except for two I have crashed.
16 gb ram
amd ryzen 5 6-core @ 3.2 ghz
geforce 1050

Running out of reasons to play since every game crashes once things starts getting interesting. I don’t even think it crashed this much in the previous patch which is even more bewildering. Around 2 months after release this kind of stuff shouldnt still be happening but it does and my team suffers because of it. My team mates have also been having similar crashes, one in particular with a pc leagues better than mine so “upgrade your hardware” isn’t an excuse to hide behind. Very reminiscent of HD where getting elo just meant not crashing or desyncing.


The game crashes when I want to delete saved games. it’s annoying.

I was winning and the game crashed to desktop for me too… no error, no nothing, just closed to desktop

so how long do we have to put up with this because there hasn’t been a day that i’ve played online where I didn’t crash. I just crashed from a 2v2v2v2 that my team was winning and that felt like the last straw, if this game didn’t move the majority of the playerbase to it i’d just stick to hd at this point. It’s absolutely appalling that this is an issue

Could you share game settings?

Also, how’s your PC setup? Drivers up to date? HDD/SSD are too full or too fragmentated? Any antivirus running on?
