I've been finding that I'm get dropped out of a startling number of games for connectivity reasons. I even got dropped out of my own private game right before the end of the boss fight in The Summit.

I have a healthy internet connection, and I was running off of ethernet at the time of that particular lag out.

I haven't noticed an effect like this in any other game.

Try turning down your graphical settings? – Gwen Mar 17 '13 at 8:19
I misspoke. It's not that my computer is seizing up, it's that I'm getting dropped. – rsegal Mar 17 '13 at 13:49

Trendynet is a fickle beast; you're certainly not the only one. If your game loses connection with their servers (or the Steam servers) for more than a second or so. The game is dropped immediately.

At this point, there's not much that can be done about it until Trendy fixes the issue on their end.
