Issue: During a match, at any random time, the game view will suddenly "freeze" in place with the player's ship sailing away. The issue does not rectify itself. Try task-switching out and closing the application via the Task Manager Processes tab, then restarting the game to re-enter the match, in the hopes that might clear things up. Problem persists, either happening just moments after the restart and participating in the match again, or immediately after re-entering the match. Obviously, this renders the game unplayable.
The issue occurs without mods (deleted all files in re_mods folder) or with mods installed.
No error or crash file is generated.
Result: The game is unplayable.
Expected Result: The expected result is that this should not be happening.
How to Replicate: No reliable way of deliberately replicating the issue other than playing normally and waiting for it to happen, which at this point seems to be only a matter of time. The problem has persisted over many patches now and has been reported "fixed" in previous patch notes, indicating that the problem is known by the developers. Still happening, though.

A clan member who uses an older rig with windows 8 experiences the same issue from time to time too.
