just queued for group finder and went into Maelstrom Prison. As soon as I loaded in, myself and at least one other group member(s) were stuck in place. Our mouses would hover over just like normal, but we couldnt click on anything (save the menu buttons and the chat box)

Tried using the mouse to move, couldnt.
tried using the keyboard to move, couldnt.
Hit enter to type into group chat, couldnt.
Had to click on chat box with mouse to be able to type.

Never saw this bug before.

Just got into another Group Finder for Maelstrom Prison, and this time I got to the shuttle from the fleet, and when I loaded into the FP, the same thing happened. Couldnt move or turn the camera. had to click on the chat window in order to tell the group what was going on... then when I tried to restart, I got kicked from the group by the computer and placed on a 10 cooldown before queueing again!

I wonder if it is kicked in by shortcutting the movie intro?...

I loaded into Maelstrom Prison today and let the intro go the full length... and WAS able to move afterwards....

Thanks for your reports!! We are looking into players becoming frozen when loading into Maelstrom Prison. If you have additional details (the movie intro is an interesting theory that we'll be testing for sure!), please add them here.

I just queued for GF and popped for MP. I let the cut scenes go the full legth... and was able to move once loaded.
two of my group members werent able to move upon loading... and said when I asked them that they did short cut through the cut scenes....

I still have a 10 minute cooldown though since the tank left ....and those arent plentiful enough to have stayed....

not sure if this is intended or not... but when we try to relog and come back (and that doesnt work) we quit game to reload everything.... only thing is... as soon as we quit game we get auto dropped from group.... (last two times its happened to tanks and they arent exactly a quick replace.)....

Try the following:
1) Don't Quit the game.
2) Instead, click on the "Exit Area" button above your minimap (it becomes available once you are inside a flashpoint).
3) Once you appear back where you were, click on the "Group Finder" icon again and then click the "Travel Now" button to be taken back to the flashpoint.
4) Don't shortcut the intro movie and check if the issue is resolved.

If the above works for you, post back here and let us know (and let others in your group that are stuck know as well ).
If you seek answers, you must always ask questions. - Master Vandar Tokare.

[Suggestion] Add another Blaster Pistol with the "A-300 Heavy Sonic Needler" model = DONE!

I had this problem but thought it might be because I loaded in from the bugged Czerka daily area. Got in and could do nothing but type in chat.
1. Tried exiting area and returning, result was that I could click on people and do actions but not move forward without clicking guardian leap.
2. Next was forced dc through alt f4 and when i got back in it worked fine.

My wife had the same issue. Hers actually persisted when the game closed. Do you guys have Logitech Keyboards? Somehow, it cause the keyboard to think the control button was being pressed...causing said issues.
