:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


as title says, when playing especially with AI, game would spike in lag and a player would drop/crash getting the bugsplat window. then after around 30 seconds to a min or so another player would crash as well and possibly up to 3-4 players in sequence.

sometimes this is the host, sometimes its just random players getting affected. it seems to start after the latest maintenance or patch.

attached the replay, near the end of the game.
