View Full Version : Game keeps freezing for 5 secs [VIDEO]

11-28-2014, 12:18 PM
I've installed the patch 1.3 yesterday and I've noticed an improvement in the gameplay (in general). However there is a thing that it happens to me since the game was released. It randomly freezes for a couple of seconds, not only the game itself but my whole PC, I mean every application I have running in the background freezes (even the Windows clock). Before the patch this freeze lasted about 10 secs. After the patch it usually lasts less (like 5 secs) but it keeps happening, normally 1-3 times per session (online or offline, it doesn't matter).

Here is a video when you can watch what I mean (it's not mine but from a user who has the same problem):

I hope Ubi are aware of this issue and fix it in the next patch because it's annoying and it ruins the gameplay.

BTW, my rig:

I7 3770K (stock speed)
8 GB DDR3 @ 2100 Mhz

As you can see in the video comments it also happens on the new GTX 9xx serie.

I've just enabled HyperThreading in my BIOS because I'm almost sure it's a CPU related issue. I've played for 30 min. and I got no freezes but it can be simply luck. I need more time to test it. I'll post the final results here.

already a 6 page thread on this mate.


you need to keep the other thread live so DEV's can see the extent of issues with others

its a cpu issue for sure. Try monitoring ur cpu usage. is it 100% on all cores?

its not a CPU issue mate. I have a very good CPU and getting issues

check the other thread i posted link to above

i'm running an i5-4670k with GTX970 Oc card and getting freezing

when it runs ok, i get around 70fps on 144hz monitor

in essence, the game is unoptimized
