[Bug] Exfiltrate Game-breaking WZ PVP immobilize

Hi CS team,

I have observed in a few consecutive pvp warzone matches that being knocked back before/during an exfiltrate (operative roll) will cause your character to become permanently immobilized - persisting through death.

For example: if you roll past an inquisitor using overload, you will stand up straight and twitch left and right until which point you are killed or you /stuck (which will kill you). Upon spawning in the protected area, you will be unable to move. using your cc break ability will yield the error message "you are not controlled" and attempting to use a movement ability will yield the error message "can't do that while immobilized".

At this point, you simply time-out of the warzone for lack of the ability to leave the protected area or use a second /stuck in time.


I would say this issue is minor, because it requires the unlikely overlap of a roll and a knock-back - but it can be replicated readily enough that it has happened to me in several games in a row (which sucks because you literally get to watch hundreds of your WZ coms slip away), and to other operatives in the match.

Thanks much for reading.

I just had this happen to me as well in a huttball match. I scampered and got knocked back at the same time then I was frozen like a statue. I could still cast and attack other players but I could not move. /stuck did nothing and I eventually died and got kicked from the warzone since I could not leave spawn. After the warzone I scampered once and my character froze again. Managed to get around the issue by re-logging.

This is the same with me. I made a short post about it the other night after filing two in game tickets http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=624754 but you will see their response was pretty lackluster.

However, I have done what they said but I do not think it will fully resolve the issue. I haven't got to play many games at 55 so maybe it is fixed but regardless I just wanted to post that I had the same issue on my operative.

Thanks for making this thread with more description.

This happened to me yesterday when I was just casually rolling around on the Fleet (wasn't in a warzone or grouped with anyone, so no interfering skills) - suddenly between rolls I just got stuck on the nice clean level floor: http://assets.enjin.com/wall_embed_i...4208_stuck.jpg

I wasn't able to /stuck myself off it but I could use my map travel so I mapped to the spacedock travel point but was still stuck.

Thanks for the reports guys. I have had seen this happen myself in an FP. If you haven't done so already, please create a /bug report on this, with the information above.

Thanks.

I would guess that the more people that submit a ticket on a certain bug will increase its chances of moving to the top of the bug list and getting it fixed
