I am experiencing this issue now for a couple of days. It started exactly after the game patched to 41.0.
Every 90 seconds the game freezes for 3 seconds.
I can reliably reproduce this issues in every match I play.
The very first freeze always happens when the match timer shows 0:51 seconds.
From that point on exactly every 90 seconds the freezes repeat (2:21, 3:51, 5:21, 6:51 etc.).
The screen is completely still during that 3 second freeze. I cannot ping, move the camera view or whatsoever.
Never happened before to me and I didn’t change anything to my rig except the HOTS patches to 41.0 and 41.1 recently. All drivers, Win10, router etc. are up to date. I tried all usual “fixes”. Deactivated all but the vital background processes without any effect.
I am very sure that this problem is caused from the game itself because it follows the described time scheme. No matter how long I wait in the lobby, which time of the day and what the weather is outside. The first freeze always reliably happens at 0:51 and then the 90 seconds rhythm persists in every match.
If any external trigger would be responsable for this behaviour at least the very first freeze wouldn’t occur always at the same time after the start of a match.
Or do I miss anything here?
Is anybody else seeing this issue?
Thanks and bye!
