Minecraft 1.12 Pre-Release 2
Windows 10 x64 (Using the Java 1.8.0_25 runtime)
Noticed this problem since this prerelease, if a server does not respond to the pinger, it crashes the client.

This issue happens when the request times out so the client crashes. Happens with desteria's server and someone's server which does not respond to the pinger.
PS: I've tried searching if someone reported that issue and I couldn't find it.
