Crashing every other game

I can't play this game without crashing about every other game.
Sometimes it shows the collecting data dialog, sometimes it doesn't and goes straight to desktop
I never get an error.
I've followed all of the advice in the sticky.
I've verified my install files.
I've nuked my game.
I've updated my drivers.
It's on a new build, with a fresh hard drive.
But I still crash to desktop at least every hour.
It happened prior to the patch and post patch, same frequency.
There's really no consistency or anything in particular I've noticed that happens preluding to the crash. It seems random, but maybe I'm just not seeing the pattern.

I attached three tech_support package, fresh from crashes. It happens on combat and regular games at the same frequency.
Any ideas?

    Disable the Steam Cloud Sync thing for the game. This was recently causing my game to crash. It was driving me insane trying to figure out why.

    My guess is, the cloud save with corrupted or something. No idea, but it was also causing my game to randomly take a reallly long time to load too. Once I disabled the Cloud feature, it fixed everything.

    I've seen other say to use the 'nuke fix' for the game, but I believe the Steam Cloud saved data is still being used, which is causing issues because the game is pulling data from the Steam servers for the game. Don't quote me on that, just my guess.

    Here is some other stuff you can try.

    Turn off any other overlays that might be running. Like Discord, Steam or whatever. (I personally have Steam overlay on, without issue, but if you have a bunch running at the same time, it can cause issues.

    Quit out of the Battle.net app and Epic Launcher. I've had weird problems with b.net and this game running at the same time. (other games too though)

    Make sure you don't have DX11 enabled in the NS2 options. Use DX9.

    If you are running on Windows 10, disable the 'fullscreen optimization for the game'

    I'll update my post as I think of more things.

    Haven't checked the file but keep in mind it is always recommended to disable physics multithreading if there are issues

    Knock on wood, but I think this did it. I played for two hours last night with no crashes.
    Which is probably a new record so far, I'll try the other stuff if it continues.
    I have the game on an m.2 nvme drive, so I must've not noticed the longer loads.

    Nope, I lied. Still crashing today. Here's another tech_support package. I'll try the rest of the recommendations.
