With the latest update to the PTR (220.127.116.11722) a portion of players are experiencing hard crashes when loading into the world. The client launches and realm/character selection works but part way through the load bar after pressing Enter World they receive the following crash.
ERROR #0 (0x85100000) Assertion failure! Program: C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\_classic_ptr_\WowClassicT.exe ProcessID: 920 ThreadID: 12788 File: D:\BuildServer\C\work\DedicatedCheckout\Storm\H\SStr.inl Line: 74 Expr: string2
Here is one report ID from this crash -
