Hey y'all! Ken is back from the grave! (but still not able to play SC yet).
As for the crashing, what happens? Does the game freeze but you're able to close it and continue running the computer? Or does the game freeze and stall your computer so you need to restart it? Or, finally, does the computer totally crash and restart itself?
Edit: Oh, forgot one: or does the game just d/c and auto-log you out? Just trying to get an idea, since there's a chance I can help. This is part of my professional field, after all.
Freeze and I gotta hit the button. I'm thinking it was a common problem that was addressed in the last patch cuz it hasn't done it since the latest patch went live.
I assume by button you mean the hard reset button? Well that means it's not your Internet or the Blizz servers. Most likely an error in the game itself, although there is the small chance it could be in the computer hardware. Does it only happen for online games or single player too?
sigma at work. also, 14 games isn't a lot to completely settle a person's rating. maybe he just lost all 5 placements then won 9 in a row. i'd do that too if I had the chance so I could farm achievements.
MMR is actually really accurate if you've read any extensive posts about it.
