I have the same problem, where right after i log in to the game it atumaticlly freezes and it just stays there. I want to know what is happening. I am getting really sick of it. I don't know if its my computer or if its the game itself.

It might be your computer, are you playing on a different one than before? On my laptop the game almost never freezes and runs smooth but on my desktop the game sometimes freezes ( not really bad but in patches). Also I saw the news for this week and there was an "empty your backpack" news. I think they were saying if you empty your backpack you have less things the game needs to keep up with and less lag.

You may have a corrupted file.

This happened to me one time. The only difference is that my game would freeze during a certain file on launch. You may have to reinstall the game if you haven't already. You could also put in a ticket to support, they may be able to tell you what file is causing problems.

Maybe I should try that.
