I downloaded the update and tried to search for a game in the H3 playlist.
During 30 minutes of searching my game crashed 4 times, I didn't get to play a single match and it kicked me back to main menu both times I actually did find players.
Once again another placebo patch that doesn't do anything. I was watching a friend stream earlier and he got put in a game with uneven teams (5v4) the first game.
