For the last 2 weeks when ever I go into FOTM my pc turns off after 1 of 3. Not sure why it's doing it. I had no problem before but 2 weeks ago it started.
My rig is not overheating. I can play GW2 for hours and hours and hours. When ever i do FOTM after the firt run or during it my PC turns off. It's like someone unplugged it. It's really odd and not sure why it's happening.
This does not happen on any other game.

Has this happend to anyone else?

A guildie of mine experienced the same sort of issue with the Mad Clock Tower. Make sure your PC is up to date, your doing your windows updates regularly, limit the programs that run in the back ground, and have the latest stable driver release for your video card.

I'm all up to date, with drivers as well. still not sure what's going on. the game works great it's just FOTM that's messed up.

How weird :/ Hopefully you can get a response from a support ticket, they may be able to tell you what the issue is.

Question, feedback or issue? Pm me!

just another reason to not do them until really fixed imo.  being I finished the rest of my monthly without actually trying to, guess I'll do the fractals this weekend despite my dislike for them.  hope I don't get this issue, but thanks for bringing it up.

I got a bizarre fan going mental noise (hardware) with GW2 for a while.  It was similar to Dead Island, HUMMMMM!

Of the past five dungeons I've done, four were Fractals, and someone disconnected every time. Didn't note any patterns, though.

My computer died last night when I tried again fractals for the first time in weeks. But then again, my computer shouldn't even run.
