I finally found why my game has been freezing at times. It is going bonkers with file IO opening and closing the same files hundreds of times per second.

The following is captured during a game.

It _really_ should not be doing that during a game and as soon as another process does a long IO operation the game freezes for a few seconds.

Even stranger is that i am not subscribed to anything on the steam workshop for this game yet i still have 4 directories in D:\steamapps\workshop\content\204300.

I have emailed the related files and logs.

The files seem to be from the current Brawl, and they're hosted on the Workshop like any other mod. Why it reads them so much I dont know. If you've sent logs and proof already, then all that can be done is wait for the game to get fixed.

The game also downloads workshop mods (somewhat?) randomly that you have never looked at, subscribed to, or played. It will download all files in the mod. So you can potentially download any random thing someone decides to upload without warning or choice.
