"in combat" bug

Any eta on 'in combat' bug. Supposed to be six seconds and for months now we have been pushing emp- trying to get in doors-trying to mount to defend- trying to change siege types-trying to change gear ect in cyro to no effect. Often several minutes before you can get out of combat even to transit to participate in fights or defenses.....rather game function destroying if you walk everywhere in cyro or never make it to time sensitive things like crowing emps ect. Could we get an ETA of when this super cool 'feature' will be fixed?

    Zos, this is still a problem and without an ETA- still checking to see if it has been put on 'list' for fix yet.

    Driving me nuts. I'm usually stuck in combat for anywhere between 10-15 minutes.
    It seems to happen more often on my stamplar than anything else. It was quite common when I played magicka warden at Morrowind release too.

    This has been an issue since release...I don't think they can fix it.

    I think why it happens (mostly in AvA) is because they, for some reason, 'blanket check' to see if the target and you are in combat...not with each other, but just 'in combat'.

    So, you attack a Hostile-player, you both go 'in combat'. But then your friends show up and get a hit, which now puts them and you 'in combat' with the target.

    You run away or go to help elsewhere, but your friends are still engaging that hostile-player. The game checks: 'is everyone who was on the aggro table still in combat'; yes, just this one [you] hasn't been hitting them.

    ((But how often does it stay 1v1 or #v1...ya...eventually other's show up and it's a domino effect; you all are keeping each other in combat...like a aggro spiderweb. :tongue: ))

    So far every time the player I've attacked has been killed I've dropped combat.
    You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.

    It was fixed one time already......reintroduced with patch. Making it a real problem to do ANYTHING associated in cyrodiil. All the major things a player does in cyro are prevented while in combat- and forget about regen. As for the 'tips'...appreciate them, however been doing this since beta and already know group members can put and keep you in combat, that is NOT what is happening now with people being in combat for 10 minutes as they run (on foot) between keeps. It isn't HOT's that are lingering....its combat that does not end after six seconds of attacks stopping.

    its not just pvp either, spent most of my pledge runs last night stuck in combat and unable to switch sets around.
    Raising floors and lower ceilings by zos standards has created an iron maiden.
    No matter how well you played,when the game is over,the king and pawn go back in the same box.
    Be careful what you ask for from zo$, you always get punished.

    It only seems to happen, after attacking a wall-jogger group (what a surprise, huh?). It immediately ends, when the previously attacked get killed. So bottom line here: No one at ZoS can do something there, only those who like to waste others time in such groups. Essentially, this "bug" is simply magnifying the effect of those people's original intent. "Well" done to them...
    You reveal yourself best in how you play.

    It doesn't just keep you in combat longer than it should. Sometimes it puts you in combat preemptively. Like when you teleport to a keep and immediatelly can't swap skills / quickslots because you're in combat -- at the inner shrine in a keep that's not burning, only someone in party is fighting outside. Never happens when you're Solo, so that's one "solution" ;)

    As far as I know, the last official word on the combat bug is-
    From Patch Notes August 2018:
    Gameplay
    When attempting to mount while in combat, an alert will now display stating "You cannot mount while in combat."

    Still a problem indeed.

    Crouching a couple of times sometimes helps for me. Sometimes it doesn't. It's worth a try...
