When there’s a lot of action going on (150-300 units fighting) the game often crashes. I play a lot of FFA and long games, so it is happening a lot recently. I think it happens more often on european maps, and on XL maps, but can happen in any map and size. There’s also a correlation between the extension of the game and the crash: the longer the game gets, the probablity of crashing increases. This is my pc build: CPU: AMD FX-8350 16GB RAM DDR3, GPU: GTX 1650. I play with low resolution and all graphics settings on low or disabled, with the exception of ultrazoom, that i consider necesary for tactical reasons.

I don’t crash, but I do get scared every time I take out a screenshot the game freezes and I start praying…
