Unfortunately, that's all we can do about it for now, and then there is nothing stopping it from happening again the next time we re-spawn. There is also a glitch that benefits snipers though, and that's the terrible one where our opponent becomes stuck in the debilitate stun. It happened the other day when I was fighting a shadow and he thought I was hacking. I had to explain to him that it's not my fault, it's a bug that's been around for a while now, and I've been the victim of it myself when I've played some of my other characters.
well. . .to be fair i was on my sentinel at the time and was unable to leap to him xD lolol

soooo, at the time I was frustrated and of course something like that, sliding around when i keep trying to press leap. i jumped to accusing him of hacking. but when he took the time to stand there and talk to me in /say, i started thinking more clearly.

Bind your "Take Cover in Place" ability and hit it when you get stuck in the crouch bug. Gets me out of it every time. I had to deal with that bug constantly until I figured that out.

I CANNOT believe this hasn't been patched! It's happened to every sniper/slinger I know. twice in one week. Once on my slinger, and again today on my newbie 51 sniper. I reported it during a match on 1.1. Please allot programming hours to fix it. It's silly.

This one. I have the same trouble sometimes (also only in Voidstar), and using the take-cover-in-place button fixes it for me also.

And no, /stuck does not work.

Anybody else experiencing this? It only happens on VS.
try hitting /stuck while holding down alt+f4

I have had this happen to me way too often.

Like above posters have said, using the take cover in place command usually unsticks you. Another option that I have used (doesn't work every time, but most of them) is to use Hightail It / Covered Escape. Usually that will trigger the correct cover phase (where you can use your abilities and aren't mobile and are, you know, in cover).

Hope that helps.

And yes, this is a bug that has needed fixing for a year now.
