It is late afternoon in Cyro. I don't feel lag. Ping is fine. I attacked this group of 4 before. Now they are on to me. When I attack again, they focus me. Fine. No matter. A dodge roll. Then run a little and activate the shield. And activate the shield. And activate the shield? Dead.
We got FTC combat log for cases like this. Sometimes the shield is consumed so quickly, you don't even see it activating. Nay. Combat log shows shield never activated. Instead it shows a templar used Toppling Charge on me. Here's the funny thing: I never saw that. As far as I was concerned, my character kept running. I use Immovability potions as well as Escapist Poison, so this wouldn't be unusual in and of itself.
This game has problems, man, and they run deep, so deep. Normally we complain about stuff like this - some kind of CC desync, perhaps - in high population, high lag situations. This was in the middle of nowhere, between Winter's Peak and Bruma. No Negate bubble, no Incap, by the way, and I was not sprinting.
