So last night I did a trial for the first time after the recent patch adjustment this week. It was the first time we have noticed this issue:
In vmol HM rakkhat- on mag toons- my girlfriend and I noticed we had no stam to block the knockback. We assumed it was our own player error and kept going. One of the other magdps suddenly announced their mag abilities were costing stam. We wiped, I thought they were crazy and we kept going.
After failing to block multiple times I recognized that sporadically, I was also getting the mag-skills-cost-stam glitch.
On console, sprinting is very fluid. Just push the left stick while moving. We have adjusted to animation cancelling a skill to break the sprint versus being able to block to break the sprint before the latest patch.
In retrospect I think the issue stemmed from players sprinting to drop bomb by the wall and potentially creating some kind of error in the game when we tried to just continue to dps without manually turning off sprint.
I am also a VAShm front kiter and was having issues being able to cast abilities at all, sometimes. I had assumed it was lag and until now had not associate it with the blocking changes which inadvertently affected our sprinting habits.
Has anyone else experienced this kind of error/loss of fluidity?
