:arrow_forward: ISSUE

About every 7-8 games or so, my game ‘freezes’. I get no error message and my game remains open. I can still scroll around map in game and click things, but nothing moves. I have to resign, when i do resign the map does not reveal (its as if connection has been lost). However, my internet and wifi never drop. I’ve monitored my wifi and there is no drop in signal. I have 45mbps download speed and 100fps.

I have a suspicion that it is based on what server i connect to. It seems to only happen when the ingame ping (from pressing F11) is around 350ms, it hasn’t happened when i have more local games, but i could be wrong on this, will continue to monitor.

I’ve deactivated all mods and have verified cache files and port forward to my computer. Have stopped connection to wifi extender as i thought this might be causing it too,

I’ve had game since beta and only ever had a single drop until now. This new ‘freeze’ has only started happening since latest build, coincidentally, I have installed a new wifi card during this time, wondering if this could be the issue? (but as mentioned there is no drop in my wifi signal during the freeze).

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s how to reproduce the issue:

  1. Open AOE
  2. Do ranked game
  3. May freeze 30 seconds in or 20 mins in - kinda random.
