Game Freeze 10 seconds massive Ethernet download

My game freezes for 10 seconds and when it happens, I am suddenly downloading at a rate of 13.9Mbps. I am not going to upgrade my download speed blizzard. Fix your game.

I am getting massive slow downs, never happened before.

Most likely following longstanding bug.

There are different workarounds.

  • Swap fmode.dll (no Sound)
  • Swap or delete msvcp140.dll and vcruntime140.dll
  • Run the game on only one CPU core

fmode .bat file

fmode powershell script

Visual Studio dlls

CPU affinity shortcut
