Random game freezes

Posts: 1
Hearthstone was fine yesterday, but after today's patch i've been experiencing lagg about ever 40 seconds from the start of the program during every page. play, in-game, collection, shop, everything.

Not to beat a dead horse, but i played a different game to check my connection and it was hearthstone alone.

Please and thank you for fixing it advance.

Has anyone tried playing in Compatibility mode for Windows 7? Locate your Hearthstone folder it should be in your "C:\Program Files (x86)" by default if not in whatever location you installed it in. Open the Hearthstone folder and right click on the "Hearthstone" application icon and properties, than click on the Compatibility tab. Under the Compatibility mode section CHECK the Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Windows 7 apply settings and close it. Than run the Battle.net app and try Hearthstone see if this helps any.

In my case the computer (windows 8.1) freezes after closing Hearthstone. For 20-40 seconds a service (Remote Call procedure) eats up at least 40-50% processing power. After 20-40 seconds windows closes it and everything is normal again but I can really hear the fan of my processor spin up during this time. Sometimes there are framerate issues during playing the game as well.

Yes i noticed after this update Patch 1.1.0.6187

"Added support for touch based windows 8 PC's"

However now my windows 8 64bit pc (not touch based) cant play the game without freezing once every minute.
Each time it freezes for about 10 seconds.

Really annoying

Windows 8 64 Bit
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M x2 (SLI is active)
GeForce 340.52 Driver

The game's not just slowing down for 10-15 seconds, it's closer to a full minute or more for me. It's like playing with a constant Nozdormu (the rope tends to show up on my turn or theirs roughly 2 seconds after freezing) except it's painfully slow, if that makes sense.

I am having the same problem. When this occurs, I can still move the mouse around, and my twitch stream on the other monitor still runs smooth, but the hearthstone game has a static image frozen in place. When the game unfreezes, you have not missed any actions ( i.e., you attack with a minion, but before it hits your opponent's face, the game freezes. After the game resumes, you will see the minion hit your opponents face and you will not have "missed" the face hitting animation because of the freeze).

AMD radeon 7950
Driver version: 14.100.0.0
