GSF Program Crash

I'm a frequent player of GSF and about 1 out of every 5 matches, the entire game crashes. I'm not sure what may be causing the problem, but the crash only happens mid-flight in GSF. Sometimes at the start of the match, other times when I've racked up the medals and kills. Nevertheless, the only symptom that allows me to tell if it's going to crash is that the game freezes or becomes choppy for maybe a second or two. Then almost immediately following that, the game crashes to desktop. No problem in logging back on or queuing and playing GSF.

Is anyone else having this issue? It'd be great to hear any possible fixes or ways to determine what may have caused that crash.

I have had something similar happen a couple times. Well at least once that I know of (today) - After a GSF match I hit Exit Match and the game promptly closed to desktop. No lag or any other indication of a problem. Logged right back in and didn't see it again.

I sent a ticket in, might be something to do with the new patch.

The first thing to try is rebooting the computer, because that magically solves so many problems. Would recommend doing a hard shutdown and leaving it off for 30 seconds or so instead of doing the quick restart your operating system provides.

If that doesn't fix it, try looking into your CPU and RAM status, since those are pretty much the only things you have some measure of control over.

If you know how, it's worth checking your CPU and GPU temperatures as well (and GPU VRAM usage, too). If you don't, don't worry about it.

Of course, from there, we're not sure if it's better to find that the problem is on your end, or that the problem is something the devs need to look into.

To add to this, do a memory test. You might have a stick of ram on the way out.

I had heat issues at one point, when I was overheating the computer would fully shut off (under a high load like when playing GSF) for me at least this is different. Everything is nominal (memory, heat, drivers, etc)

This appears to just close the program with no error message, and is at least for me a very new behavior (like since 2.7)

(happened only once for me out of maybe 50 matches since patch)

I've been crashing randomly since 2.7 as well. I've submitted a ticket but haven't heard back from them yet. I don't see any other posts about crashing though, so I figured it was just me.
