Tabbing crashes the game

  • I'm on borderless window, but if I tab out while in a game or loading the game turns into a black screen and I have to close it. Sometimes it can't even be closed and you can't switch to any other application, I already restarted my pc twice to it and played the tutorial 7 times.

  • Tabbing back to the game while in queue also causes this.

    That sounds very frustrating and we would like to look into this further. Can you please provide the following information below?

    @yuyy Thanks for sharing this information. While we don't have a fix for this at the moment (other than avoiding Alt-Tabbing or switching to another app while playing) I have reported this bug to our developers.

  • @ags_cc

    Can you tag me or something if you manage to fix it? I can't really play the game without tabbing when the queue times are, on average, between 8 and 12 minutes. Might be possible, but I'm far too used to doing it and that's a lot of time to do nothing. I'd still love to play the game though, if there's no longer that issues

    @yuyy I'm the same way - I constantly Alt-Tab out of games while I'm waiting (except one - not Breakaway - which also crashes when I do it.)

    While I will receive periodic updates from our developers I might not be able to respond directly. If possible, though, I will reach out to you.

    Thanks fam.

    May many lucks befall you o7

  • Have you been trying to run the title in window with borders? Then you could try to turn it full screen before the match starts.

  • @2real4game

    I have not but I'll try that when I next get the chance.

  • Seems there was another patch and I don't have the issue anymore
