Ive just started playing and have noticed that the game doesnt exit very well at all, it hangs and it crashes, is this a known issue or just my bad luck?

And if it is a known issue, is there anything i can do?
A forum post should be like a woman's skirt, long enough to cover the subject material but short enough to keep things interesting

I have the same problem on occasion. Mainly when I'm done with my daily HM and I'm exiting out of the instance. It will hang up at 25% loading.

Edit: A few weeks ago this used to happen all the time and was really bad on Belsavis. Now it just does it every now and then and always at the worst time.

it happens to me after extensive stretch of play, and I'm assuming it's a memory leak of some sort, therefore my own workaround is to quit the game regularly and relaunch it.

Yeah exactly this. It happens to my son on a frequent basis when exiting the game. No Node spec error (can't remember the exact wording) I also assumed it was due to a memory leak.

I had 4 GB memory and I had this problem. After I went to 8 GB it stopped happening. A workaround I used before I increased my RAM was to Log Out and THEN Quit Game, that worked for me.
Try increasing RAM if you can, or do the Log Out then Quit Game. Hope that helps.

That happens to me as well, more or less every time I close the game. I only have 4gb RAM so I guess lack of memory is a viable explanation for this.

Same here. It gets worse the longer I've played the game. It's definitely a memory leak.

Started happening to me after I updated my graphics driver but last few days it just hangs for a few mins then quits finally.

This ^ My old pc had the issue with 4 GB of RAM and my new laptop doesn't have the issue with it's 8 GB of RAM.
