Semi-random Freezing in Campaign mode

Occasionally when I’m attacking a planet or being attacked, the game freezes either right after hitting the fight button after deployment, or just after loading ships to begin the fight after pressing any key. Luckily the game autosaves after each turn, or it’s be unplayable for me. Does anyone else have this issue?

This seem to happen to me too. There doesn’t appear to be any consistent pattern to it. I’ve been trying to shut down things like anti-virus etc to see if it makes a difference but nothing seems to prevent it happening.

I also have this issue. It seems to be every 4th-5th battle for me, it will freeze up and I have to forceclose the program. It’s really annoying, especially if it’s the third fight that turn, because then I have to re-play all of them.
