There is no way to turn off the autosave so you regularly have to wait on the game's freezing... You need to patch this. It's inexcusable. I do not even have any PS Cloud saving turned on. It's just the standard mandatory autosaving.
The Walking Dead had the same issues where the game would freeze up when it saved, but at least that wasn't between EVERY HAND OF PLAY. I'm amazed you still haven't come up with a solution for such an annoying problem that seems to be prevalent in all of your games... This isn't even fun with all of the hiccups.
I can see the design choice was to keep people from quitting out of games that they were losing? But who cares when the game is this awful to play? I like the personalities and the commentary but dont see myself playing much of this in its current state.
