Any other leapers falling short of their destination?

What people are seeing is basically the reverse of what has happened to me being leaped upon. The game is **** and is unable to even somewhat sync up player positions. I saw a leaper at 35+ meters while they were able to leap to me.

In http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=644818 I show two screen shots, both show the person I was targeting at 35.69 meters. Disturbance, Project, and Turbulence all have a 35 meter range, they did not light up showing that my end of the game thought the player was at the range the distance meter says they are at yet in the second picture, you can see I have stopped moving, took leap damage and they gained the 3 resource associated with leap yet still at 35.69 meters.

Basically, there is nothing you can do except as far as I can tell maybe run through a proxy server in Taiwan to get higher latency in order to gain an advantage since having a low ping (mines around 40ms) puts you further then your targets.

Confirming it's been happening to me yesterday. And it wasn't during pvp too. Been questing on my marauder. Leap will trigger, but I never ended up near the mob. May have appeared next to the mob a sec, then rubberbanded back to my old location. Had to run to them as I used up my leap.

It's like something updated my new location after a leap, then reupdated with my old location.

In a game of huttball I went to jump from mid to a team mate on the lower platforms past the first fire at sandbags. I stopped in mid air over the pit and fell straight down. My team mate confirmed what I saw, he saw the same thing, I dropped in mid air. I guess this could be attributed to lag but it costs me my ability every time it does this when it does not work properly.


Is anyone else experiencing this?
If you are reporting a bug then this is the WRONG forum to report it. The Bug Report Forum is read with more frequency for reports of bugs than the PvP Forums. So you may want to repost this over there.

As far as this bug goes I can see how this would be completely game breaking for Chargers as your gap closer is a big deal. I hope it gets fixed soon as well.

Maybe huttball will be balanced for once...

The most obvious reason is net latency.

Get a better connection (if there's any way to do it) and see if that helps. If it is indeed something that's happening somewhere in between the servers and your home, then there's nothing BW can do about it, nor is it their fault.

Not all regions have state-of-the-art network infrastructure.
"To everything, there is a first step. The first steps in becoming better at PvP, is to acknowledge the fact that you totally suck. There's no shame in this -- even the greatest of players have been there, done that.
Stop complaining. Ask more questions. People are happy to help."

I've been playing my Guardian for a long time now and never had this problem till recently. Now others are coming forward with the same issue. If you are saying what I think you are, I really doubt everyone just happens to have net problems and it's nothing to do with BW.

5 jumps/2 intercede in one game and 3/1 of them is unsuccessful...
Please fix it!
