:question: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.

In the past week, or so I have been experiencing a light crash. During multiplayer regardless of 1v1, or team games, I can play for an X amount of time (there does not appear to be a specific amount) until the game freezes just like within a pause, however, I can move the camera around and click units. The game appears to be functional, but I have disconnected from the game without crashing to the main menu, or desktop. I can use the menu, and resign, or quit the game. The end game lobby appears functional as well, but I am definitely not connected. I can enter the ranked multiplayer queue again, and everything seems normal, however, after a random amount of time it will tell me that I am disconnected from the multiplayer server. There is no way to reconnect, so I reboot the game. The problem is fixed after a reboot. I have checked network settings, and various hardware components. My setup is completely fine, and packets are indeed flowing. I have ports and firewall open for the game as well. I entered into the beta to receive log files, and documented an incident. I will respond to the thread when I document more.
