Anyone crashing a LOT since new life started?

I have been crashing quite a bit to desktop since newlife started, same with my girlfriend. We have different machines, different GC's (I am NVidia, she is AMD).

Sometimes I crash just riding my mount, sometimes its when I use a spell, most of the time the crashes are NOT around heavy combat areas (like dolems).

Just curious if others are having this issue. I cant recall ever crashing as often as I am in an MMO.
People play MMORPGS for different reasons. Why are the people who play to collect mounts, pets and outfits expected to pay more than those who don't?

    Not me, I've been working fine so far.
    Toon list:
    PC NA:
    Chip Ahoy: Magicka Templar khajiit WW healer and crafter of metals, clothes, leather and wood
    Rose Scale: Magicka Nightblade argonian WW DPS and 'evil' toon (steals stuff from barrels)
    Snip Ahoy: Stamina Dragonknight khajiit WW tank
    Walks-Through-Corn: Magicka Templar argonian Vampire tank and also cooks food
    Snowy Kitten: Magicka Sorcerer khajiit WW healer and also makes glyphs
    Valerie Ahoy: Stamina Nightblade khajiit WW DPS/tank
    Mixes-With-Mud: Stamina Warden khajiit WW DPS and also mixes potions
    Tyrenan: Magicka Warden khajiit healer
    Always-Brings-Light: Magicka Dragonknight argonian WW DPS
    Howls-At-Moons: Stamina Warden argonian WW healer
    Giggles-At-Everything: Stamina Sorc argonian WW DPS
    Hugger-Of-Griffons: Stamina DK argonian WW poison focused DPS and ring/necklace crafter.

    Wishlist from ZOS: Chestnut Unicorn mount and the Lilmothiit race, would definitely pay 10K crowns or even 20K crowns for it.

    Yes, been crashing a bit on all characters since the last patch and like you, its almost never in a combat or crowded situation. It may be just a coincidence, but I noticed since I disabled MM and AG (not needed, since Im mainly doing New Life runs right now) I almost never crash now. Like I said, could be just a coincidence, but maybe try playing with addons disabled and see if it helps?

    Been crashing a ton since clockwork city. Now I can't go more than 10 min w/o a crash. standing. checking mail. walking.

    this is aside from serious lag when the bank has more than 4 people in it. '

    and I seriously doubt it's my top-of-the-line built-for-gaming freakishly expensive computer specially built for gaming that runs everything else pretty fine.

He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm.

    Had two crashes, non the first day who should be most populated, two later who is very high one crash in a month is much for me. One even had an 3-5 minutes rollback who is unknown.
    My guess its to much zone jumping, players jump to zone do the 5 minute quest and jump back.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    I've had quite a few crashes when teleporting around with the wayshrines doing New Life quests. But I think it might have something to do with trying to move around too quickly after zoning into a densely populated area. I seem to have fewer problems if I pause for just a few seconds or so after I'm out of the loading screen.

    Crashed several times since New Life began, almost never did that before, and yes - often right or a few moments after porting.
    I'm blaming rapidly hopping around heavily crowded areas, at the moment, and hope it'll be back to normal after the event.

    XB1 NA. I got booted back to the main screen (the one with the news and patch notes) at least once each day at peak hours. Elden Root was particularly troublesome with long load screens and a few disconnects. I always expect performance issues in Elden Root due to the large crowds and such.

    Not sure what other info ZoS needs for feedback. If I'm missing something let me know.

    Crashing once or twice a night since the festival launched, usually at a load screen. Hoping it will revert to normal once the festival is over.

    That has happened to me twice now. I'll try pausing once I teleport as I was rushing off or trying to mount the minute I zoned in.

    Lag is to be expected though with these events as server population gets skewed. It's like everyone running to one side of a ship and throwing it off balance.

    Crashed a couple times Saturday.
    One was just a crash.
    One was the situation where you use a wayshrine and only the sounds load and nothing else.

    not even once, but I can see increase in latency, as more players are playing and more are concentrated in the places where the festival quests take place

    I don't "crash" while playing. I do, however, crash to desktop whenever I quit the game. It may have something to do with the memory flush when the game closes. I'll stay at the "black screen" forever. When I ctrl-alt-del to bring up the task manager, I see the Game crash window on the desktop.

    The game has been crashing a lot lately, at least once or twice per day. I've also been getting really long loading screens that sometimes get stuck and have to close the program. I think it started before the event though, not sure when exactly. Most of the time when it crashes there is really nothing intense going on, like I'll be doing inventory management or swapping characters or something. I'm not playing on a potato either - i7 6700k, GeForce GTX 1080, 32GB RAM, game installed on 1TB Samsung 850 EVO SSD and Windows on 512GB Samsung 950 PRO M2 NVMe. Windows and drivers are up-to-date as well.

    I am having the exact same issues. Loading screens are sometimes so long with no indication that the game has frozen that I just have to force close the client and restart it. My game has crashed when doing simple tasks as well. My machine is similar to yours but a bit older. 4790k, GTX 980, 32g ram at 1920x1200, game is on an intel SSD with my other games.
