    Not a new thing, But I've noticed it A LOT today since I've been killed all day from Tmaps.

    When I die my client locks up for a few seconds, Before showing me being killed...

    Anyone else have this?

    Yes, constantly... Ever since the EC was introduced, in fact.

    Very annoying.

    Doesn't seem to matter for me. If I die, its a 99.99% chance that I will lock up and the actual death cry & animation will take upwards of 10 seconds to start.

    And I'm playing on a system that handles the EC just fine everywhere else.

    Something tells me this is related to the lockups that happen with the large guardian explosions the EMs can use. Those cause a similar lockup, or crash the client outright.

    Have you tried turning off the hardware death effect, and see if that reduces your lockups?

    Indeed I have. That toggle appears to do nothing for this issue :(
