So I play a FL game, and do fairly well (7,000 damage, lots of assisted dmg, helped cap a base, was mid-Captain in rank).

 

With around 24 seconds left in the game, I died. The game went to the respawn screen, then crashed.

 

I restarted it frantically, knowing what was coming. Sure enough, by the time I logged back in, the game was over. Since it had ended while I was disconnected, WoT decided I had left the battle prematurely. I got ZERO credits, experience, etc.

 

And this is NOT the first time this has happened.

 

WG, are you trying to make us rage-quit this game, or what?

Doesn't matter, if you crash you can't load back in like you can in pubs. It was a wasted effort. Also the reason I stopped playing FL

Haven't had a crash in 1.0 (or since I got rid of a rx480 gpu). WG most likely isn't commenting because most of the crashes are on very old pc's or pc's that are not maintained properly. Sadly WG can't go into each of your homes and make sure your pc is healthy and updated correctly. In my house there is WoT on 3 desktop pc's with all different hardware (all running wn10) along with a gaming laptop (wn10 also). All said computers are up to date fully with the latest drivers for all components. None crash playing WoT.

It's a question of scale, Wargaming can't debug every single issue, they have to focus on issues that many players report. They might get to it eventually, but don't hold your breath. Chances are, if your hardware isn't compatible with the game, it will only get worse.

That sucks. I’ve not played many games yet, maybe 15 or so, but I’d be irritated if that happened. That’s a good amount of credits and xp  to lose.

You can, you're just stuck on the loading screen until the game gets bored and spawns you into a random tank.

it wasn't just the timing that screwed you, even if you log back in while game is still going it keeps you out which is even worse than the fact the game just crashed to cause the situation in the first place.  It is infuriating cause if it happens during randoms you do get back in, but on frontline you do not for some reason, what genius at WG thought that would be a good idea idk.

      I was crashing 4-5 times at load in....This fixed it.   Open Task Manager and "End Task" any secondary sound program that isn't your primary sound.  My problem turned out to be Nahimic

       The following should be credited to dragon slayer cuz his original post from 2017 is where i found it

    

            http://forum.worldof...-while-loading/

              Download Even Viewer and run it....then check the log to see where the problem is...

                    Peace out homies

Strange…..   Played about 35 FLs so far.    Crashed once.   Got back in, no problem. 

So "you can't get back in" isn't true all the time.

This is incorrect. you can load back into a match just fine.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice (and then again and again)... when will I learn?

Dang, sorry dude. That would probably make me sad. Don’t know what’s causing that for you, have had that once but it was mid match and I logged back in, dropped my graphics setting from ultra to med assuming that’s what caused its since it got choppy as #^*^ leading up to the sudden disconnect. Doubtful that’s what it was, but haven’t had it happen since.

If your constantly crashing at the end of games, it's most likely a hardware/driver issue. 

I've got a pretty decent gaming laptop, and at the end of the game my FPS really drops down (from 110-120 to 30-40) because of all the details FL is trying to render/show.  When you get a lot of tanks, shooting a lot of shells, in a small area, it really taxes the system.  A lot of the graphical glitches I encounter (My minimap says thats a Lorr 40t, but I'm clearly looking at an object 416) happen in the end game as well.  Make sure your drivers are up to date, kill anything running in the background, run the Event Viewer ImUsingtheForce referenced, see if there are any error logs generated.
