The Ctrl key hinders you from moving, which hampers you a lot in world pvp. If you use Ctrl + (x) as a keybind the second you press control you can no longer input any new movement. I believe this is probably a problem because ctrl 1-5 are default bindings for controlling companions. Before you decide to post and tell me I'm wrong, go in game, hold control, then try to move with wasd or both mouse buttons held down. This is very annoying to me and others I know, I have confirmed this problem with several friends.

If you also find this annoying please submit a bug report in game so it gets some attention.

CTRL works perfectly fine for me, but I use CTRL on keybinds with my mouse, not with other keyboard keys.

It works for binds but you can't move while holding the ctrl key unless you move with right and left click (which is VERY annoying). All I can do is move backwards while I'm holding ctrl.

There is also a problem with shift keys and movement. Hopefully this is included in the fix for Ctrl.

you can double bind your movement keys to ctrl+whatever-you-use. so if you use W to move forward you can set the second move forward bind to Ctrl+W and you will get some movement.

unfortunately this introduces a second problem, in that you will get stuck auto-running in directions a lot of the time, and the only way to stop the 'stuck' running is to press Ctrl+ that direction again.

so the fix is as bad as the original problem.
