I recently encountered an issue where i got a game freeze during a multiplayer game. The whole UI was frozen, but the game music was continuing.
After closing it and retrying i managed to get a crashdump and submitted it to the servers via the application.
On retrying to start the game, i got the freezes during gameplay 2 more times.
After searching for a solution on the internet, started the game and clicked on option in the menu.
Playing around and clicking the options, setting, or other submenus, i can repro the freeze in max 1 minute.

The game is no longer playable.
What can i do?
