I’ve seen many of these issues mentioned before, but I seem to be getting an unusually high number of them. I’d love a hand dealing with any (if not all, i understand) of the issues I’m facing.
First up, It takes upwards of 10+ launches most times to actually get into the game, and luck navigating a host of what i assume are connection issues: Sign in timeouts, a variety of backend errors, Connection times, inability to connect to hosts, and so on. These usually occur on entering the game (whilst loading into the keep) or loading into a mission, but even if i find my way into a game i am not safe - it can happen randomly (though less often) during a game. I’ve spent upwards of an hour just relaunching to try and play in the past and it’s always a frustration. Sometimes I just give up and play something else.
The next issue - the game closing crashes my computer, 100% of the time. It does not matter if i exit from a match, the keep, or the main menu. it doesn’t matter if I quit via buttons in the game, or attempt to close it from the process manager. If I try to exit the game in anyway, it crashes, and i must re-start my computer. On several occasions this has lead to the game being ‘uninstalled’ from steam, often requiring me to ‘reinstall’ it, wait for it to detect the already-downloaded files, and then download some more.
Finally, the most minor issue: Frequently (though not always) when i launch the game, or load into the keep after finishing a mission, it will change to windowed mode. I need to go into settings, set it to windowed, confirm, then set it back to full-screen and confirm to get it back to full-screen. Honestly, this is not much of a hassle and it doesn’t really bother me much.
Ultimately, the game is very very difficult to play just because i need to be very lucky to find myself into a game.
Here are my compy details;
OS: Windows 8.1, 64 bit
CPU: Intel I5 3.20GHz
RAM: 8 GB DDR3
GPU: AMD Radeon R9 200
Also of note: the clock on my computer is broken and does not update. Might this be causing the connectivity issues?
