Ever since the last patch, I've been having a problem where, when I press shift to zoom in, the game will freeze up pretty damn often. The only way I can unfreeze it is to ctrl/alt/delete, cancel it, then go back in the game. Half the time, I'll come back dead, since it almost always happens at the most inopportune time, such as when I'm about to attack someone.

Not sure if others have posted regarding the same thing, and don't feel like scouring the forums.

Been having this problem as well.

Apparently the freezing only occurs on high or very high graphics.  Going to lower mine to medium when I get home to see if that helps.  

I always come back to the game after a freeze, most of the time i'm dead.

^^ At medium graphics levels I'm not encountering this issue, only when I bump up to high. However, in my case, CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't solve the problem; I have a full lockup and am forced to restart the client.

I am experiencing multiple full lock-ups each day. Hard restart necessary.
FPS now averaging <4 where it used to average 20-25 on this laptop.

Has a solution for this problem been found yet?  I started playing about three weeks ago and I'm having this issue intermittently.  Sometimes alt-tabbing x2 will help resolve the freeze, sometimes not. Vidcard XFX 8800GT Alpha Dog, running at high settings.  Of course, since I'm switching over to ATI and triple head monitors later this week, I'm sure that problem will go away and I'll get a whole slew of new issues.  Them's the breaks of beta, I suppose.  :mellow:

Disregard this post, thought i had a similar problem but it was just my retarded GPU overheating.

I found a solution to this issue -- for me, at least.  I first tried disabling anti-aliasing, but still had the freeze-on-zoom issue.  My next step was to disable post-processing effects.  This seems to have fixed it.  I have played several dozen matches, using sniper mode in all of them, and have not encountered a single freeze or glitch.  

Something with post-processing in this game doesn't sit well with the 8800GT chipset.  I haven't tried turning AA back on, so I can't say if it may be a complication of the two settings.  I may try that tomorrow night and report back.

As previously stated, I'm replacing my current vidcard with a Radeon this weekend.  Will let you know if the issue recurs on that card.  If so, it may be CPU- or OS-related.
