    I'm not sure what your keyboard set up is, but double movement tap will also dodge roll. I believe you can uncheck this feature somewhere in settings.

    my setup is vanilla. However I will look into your idea as I hadn't thought it would be in more than one place. TY!

    It's in Settings>Gameplay>Combat

    You can both turn double tap on/off and set the dely for the speed of the taps

    I've occasionally done it myself, due to network lag, probably due to my average 400 ping.

    Agreed on both. I'll be testing shortly. And I feel you on the Ping. I play on EU and its over 200 most days. And that's bad enough.

    Glad you solved your problem. Just in case other's might have a similar problem, I'll discuss my experience a little.

    I have had the problem of unintentional dodge-rolling several times. Each time, it was due to my keyboard sporadically generating multiple entries for a single key press. For example, I might press the W key one time . . . and have ww enter, causing a dodge roll. I would sometimes test the keyboard by entering Word or Notebook and just tapping a single key or completing a typing exercise (typing from copy). Doing this, I diagnosed the "key bounce" . . . getting double or triple entries for a single key tap.

    It sometimes (but not all times) helped to clean the keyboard. With mechanical keyboards, I remove the keycaps and blow air through the keys. This often helped to stop the problem. I have heard that some folks remove all the keycaps and put the keyboard through the dishwasher. There are YouTube videos about this; I've been considering trying it on an abandoned keyboard (too timid to try my main keyboards). In spite of cleaning, the problem gets so bad (on a mechanical keyboard) after a couple of years, I just buy a new keyboard. The problem is always completely solved with a new keyboard. (And no: I do not eat or drink at the keyboard . . . so it's not stick-bun crumbs causing the problem, just dust and other debris, I suppose.)

    My issue is actually this. The turning off double tap biz was a temp fix.

    The W on my laptop has been broken off for some time and even external keyboards sometimes do not over ride it. I have a half keyboard for gaming that stops the issue from happening but 2 other keyboards didn't seem to override the internal board. I hate dealing with windoze drivers...

    Still I need to stop being lazy and replace the keyboard.

    my W key sometimes does multi-taps too, and ive always counted that as i still use a keyboard from around 2012-2014 (which is at this point very heavily used lol)
