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

Alright this is getting ridiculous. I think it has sometime to do with their terrible movement system involving the control button being held down. I tried remapping everything to alt...and it just doesn't work for me. I broke my keyboard in anger this morning from being stuck constantly, and I consistently just have to AFK warzones due to this happening. Would appreciate any advice aside from remapping my keys or just wait for an unlikely fix...

Have you tried /stuck?

The only fix is to relog or leave the warzone entirely. If it happens outside of the warzone I have to log out and back in. NOTHING works (aside from furiously smashing my keyboard which will occasionally break me out of it). It has to do with keybindings involving control, I'm 99% sure of this due to being able to very rarely stop it by mashing my keyboard in anger.

This happens to me in almost every Warzone i join. Your character will be stuck in auto-run mode and won't be able to get out of auto-run, unless you are killed.

This started to happen to me after binding most of my keys to a conrol modifier. I was using alt before but I got an annoying beeping while it was held down. It seems either way I'm not going to get what I want. To clearify, it's not some character running in place or stuck bug. It's being forced into auto run with no way out.

I can confirm this, happened when I vanished and got stunned at the same instant.

From what I have tested, to enable this undocumented key binding "feature" that will cause the character to get stuck in an autorun phase, I was able to reproduce the error as follows.

Holding the forward key (W in my case), then pressing and holding the control key for 3+ seconds, will place the character in autorun. While using this "feature" as I have outlined can be stopped by simply pressing the "W" key again, there seems to be some key combinations that will not remove the character from autorun.

Case in point, while using the method outlined above to place the character in the autorun (continuing to hold W and or strafing) phase, if the user presses other keys while holding the control key down and pressing another key (in my case Q and or E), the character will get stuck in the autorun phase (this technically could be forward or backward depending on which keystroke the user was hitting).

I have randomly been able to stop the character from being in the autorun phase by pressing and holding the "W" key and then hitting the "Q" key, but it is not always reliable. It is fairly easy for me to reproduce the problem when I am pvping, as I am spamming multiple keystrokes at a time. Considering this was my first night of pvping and having to spam keys and move my character quicker then in my pve encounters (thus far in the game) it was / is rather frustrating.

It's 2:45am for me and the words are starting to blur together, so I will see what I can reproduce tomorrow. Oh btw, I was also able to turn off all the sounds in the game by using a mixture of key combinations from above. I can't remember the exact combination as I am passing out on my chair...

i had this happen to me and it does have to do with a combination of ctrl and moving. The way i would get my self out of auto run was to face my char at a wall so i would keep running into that wall as not to go anywhere then i would go to my key bindings and unbind W and rebind it again. This stopped me from auto running and i was back to normal. I would assume if your going backwards instead of W unbind and rebind S. Hope this helps.

That's happened to me a few times, you get stuck in the animation of the stun even after it's worn off.

Even though you look 'stunned' you can still use abilities, just not move. The only way I found of getting out of it was either dying or being pulled/pushed.
