    Been having this issue for the longest time now in ZE. At random points my game will start freezing up, mostly happens when the server has a lot of players on it.

    See gif below how it looks like. The UI dissapears and I just get this laglike freeze.
    Did some googling some time before but didn't find anything that helped, wanted to try my luck here.

    What it looks like: https://gyazo.com/3aeedf80bd1a189af5cfe292e78df51a

    Help is appreciated^^

    Either bad internet connection or your hard-drive is failing.

    I oftenly meet internet cuts, and when it happens everything just stops, nothing move anymore. However on your gif, everything on your screen is shaking, so from my personal experience i don't think the problem comes from your internet.

    Your packets are hanging, most likely your connection is spiking up in terms of latency. On the worst case... well, could be a graphics issue, but that's VERY far fetched.

    Type "net_graph 4" into the console and post a similar gif with it visible next time it happens.

    It s not just the freezing, voice chat also stutters and will possibly lead up to these freezes I am having. Maybe this info and video can give you a better idea what the problem could be?

    Video where it happens:
    It actually fixed itself right after I stopped the video

    Definitely not the SSD.
    Seems very odd, tho. Have you tried verifying the game files?

    yes, this issue is present even when I reinstalled Windows, changed SSD's,..
    I can literally only play when the server has 30-40 people, any more and the game becomes too shitty of an experience to play (voice chat lag, ingame chat lag, UI dissapearing,...)

    like wtf

    A simple "if no success, proceed to next point":
    • Post your specs.
    • Use HWINFO to check processor and graphics card temperatures.
    • If not on a wired connection, try a wired connection.
    • Reinstall Network Drivers.
    • Reinstall COMPLETELY the game (that includes every single file, including common and cloud).
    • Reinstall Steam.
    • Reinstall Windows.
    • Switch to Linux.
    • Commit sudoku.

    Nothing worked so far,

    if someone find me a solution I will give them 2 csgo case keys (€ 4,50 steam market value)

    Things I tried so far: changing SSD's, present on new windows 10 installation, changing compability to windows 7, verifying game files, several console commands.

    If it is possible for you, try to play on a full server on another internet connexion with the same computer.

    I very very vaguely remember having such weird packet loss/lags when my connexion became shitty for absolutly no reason. I think the cause was a dying modem. Voice chat lags, chat lag...

    Does it happen in other (MMO) videogames? Does it happen on youtube with >720p quality? Does it happen on streaming websites such as Twitch ?
    Does it happen at any hour or does it happen only at some point in the day?
