Question...I get stuck moving sometimes, answer?

Alright this has been going on for a long time now and no one I know has encountered it. I can't imagine what could be causing it aside from keybindings, but I looked it all over and nothing I see could cause it unless something within the game code is causing it when I press a certain combination of buttons.

Basically what happens is that I will be playing like normal, and then I will get completely stuck either moving forward or backwards. I can't cast anything except forcequake, salvation, and my instant casts (making me near worthless). If I turn on auto run while stuck walking backwards, I will stop in place, but still be unable to cast. If i am stuck walking forwards, I have to hold down the S key to keep myself from moving. Very...very rarely I can mash my keyboard hard enough and it will break out of whatever has happened, but most of the time this does not end until I either relog or the Warzone ends.

If anyone has had similar experiences or has any clue on how to fix this, it would be much appreciated. Thanks

Is it like you're running in place with an invisible wall stopping you? Happens to me all the time.

No, my character is either moving forward or backwards and will not stop no matter what I do. I am unable to cast anything but ground AOE abilities or instant casts.

I've had a similar issue, where it appears I'm falling instead of running in place.

Yes I've had it happen. You look like you're hovering, and you can't use any casted abilities, or use your ooc heal. It's very frustrating.

I am not hovering, my character is stuck running forwards or backwards and I cannot cast anything with a cast time due to being stuck moving. Basically autorun super turns on and won't turn off, turning on auto run just makes me stand in place. It is in the game application only because alt tabbing does not press the S or W key repeatedly.

Finally...someone who feels my pain, yet no solution :-/...When this happens I generally tell my team I'm bugged while furiously mashing my keyboard. If my character doesn't stop moving I'll just go afk until the game ends in a corner because I'm worthless.
