Game freezes in first mission
I bought this game this winter holiday sale and i like it a lot. But now I am playing the "bruder gegen bruder"-campaign for the second time and something strange happens.

Right at the start of the first mission where you have to destroy some tanks, I kill the first two and the other one stays on the bridge. When my Leopards fire at that one the game freezes, but just the game. everything is like it is paused, but alle menus are functional and I can restart it. Then the same happens again.

Has anyone had this as well and/or knows what is happening and how to fix it?

Try following standard steps:
0. ensure you meet the minimum requirements
1. lower your graphic settings - retry
2. Validate cache (library, right-click on-to Wargame, Properties, Local Files) - if files are missing, check if they're downloaded (steam sometimes refuses to do so ..) - retry
3. Rename appcache in your steam folder - retry
4. Delete ClientRegistry.blob in your steam folder - retry

Yeah im now having this issue as well. Played great the first time thru this mission, now when I go back it freezes ONLY on the second group of tanks... The first two are fine, target the second and it locks up.

Doesnt matter where I shoot from. The second my tanks reload to fire a second shell it stops.

For some reason it works now... after fixing cache a few times (it missed the same 582 bytes every time) i gave up. I just restarted my Steam-client, validated one last time and apparently that fixed it. Good luck Reaper!

I have a freezing problem in the first Pact mission, in the end every time after the save it lets me play about 5 min until total lock, is this a steam thing or is the game just that bugged?

Well, I don't think that's a steam thing but neither is the game bugged - I'd say your hardware and the game don't gelled :p

Reinstalled and did the mission, worked fine, it was just some clitch.

Same problem, game pauses almost like a dialog or tutorial box is about to pop up when you hit the second group of tanks. Bad trigger guys please fix.

you're playing on mac, right? Don't move into the hedgerow with your tanks, that fixes the problem ... fix will be implemented soon afaik
