YOU CAN'T MOUNT IN COMBAT in PvP - time to get it fixed?

howdy folks,

as a PvP-er this is the main issue i have in this game. it also tells me (and everyone) that devs don't play PvP. 'cause if i was a developer of a game and had to deal with this i'd have fixed it long time ago. let's imagine a scenario -

you see a fight going on at Chalman. great. you port to Bleaker's and ride to battle. when you get to Chalman you do some fighting and then you get killed. happens. "no worries", you think. i'll just respawn at Bleaker's and go back. so you do. respawn at Bleaker's. but when you want to mount up the game tells you you can't, 'cause you're in combat. even though you have died and respawned at a different location. so you start running towards Chalman spamming the "H" button. and by the time you have ran all the way you still can't mount. you engage in fighting again, you die and this scenario repeats itself.

now, my mother always told me that if i complain about a problem i should try to find a solution. so here it is - if you die combat ends. no matter if you had any negative (or positive) effects running on you or applied to an enemy. if you've applied, say, Elemental Susceptibility to an enemy it goes away when you die. or if you've had any HoTs running on you, those go away as well. basically death should mean automatic and immediate end of combat. it is NOT fun running all the time in Cyrodiil..

    I am many others have already said it before. If the combat bug is truly *THAT* hard to get rid of, then just work around it. In this case, just allow mounting in combat, but add a cavat to it to combat it being used in actual combat. Half stamina, slower mounting, something that will keep risk to mounting in an actual fight, but if you're just stuck in combat it'll let you be on your way without a problen

    They should just separate mounting the the traditional "in combat" Scenario.

    For example, cannot mount if you've dealt or been dealt damage in the last x seconds. That way, if they really can't just fix the in combat bug, it wont ruin someone else's time who has almost won in a 1v1 by allowing you to just ride away.

    All the "in combat" function should be removed. The accessibility of doors in pve dungeons should be unlocked by a boss death.

    At this point, it’s been in the game so long… it’s a feature not a bug.

    They could easily institute a work around though, even if they can't fix the bug. Just make it so if you use a wayshrine at one of the gates you're automatically removed from combat.

    I’ve heard it said that if you are stuck in combat, it’s because you hit another player and you have to kill them to get it to stop. I’ve killed all the npcs at one of the keep resources before and got stuck in combat.

    What is broken is what needs to be fixed and that is being placed into combat when there is zero reason to be in combat. That is the error and it is clear as day. Not being able to mount in combat is not the problem so it does not need to be fixed.

    I have wondered why this obvious bug that has a major impact on gameplay has been allowed to persist without as much as a comment.

    Well, with this current garbage tank meta, that's a tall order, especially when you run into a ball group filled with them. How hard could it possibly be to say that if you haven't actively been in combat for X amount of time (30 sec - 1 min) then you drop aggro and can go happily along your way? It's been TEN YEARS. Enough is enough.

    Hitting players with siege will get you stuck in combat. Like how am I supposed to know which guy I hit is causing this?

    I agree, simple timer should disable all negative effects after X amount of time. Sometimes you need to disengage battle for whatever reason and if you do get away successfully you should be able to mount.

    Ive seen dozens of posts on this issue.

    Does anyone know if there has ever been any official response?

    I think it’s been a glaring bug for several years?

    I agree that ZOS should fix this bug. It also happens sometimes while farming dragons in Northern Elsweyr or Southern Elsweyr. You are fighting with a group of players around you, the dragon is killed, and you cannot mount, sometimes for multiple minutes. While everyone else around you has mounted and ridden off to fight the next dragon. It also happens sometimes while farming harrowstorms in the Reach or Western Skyrim.

    The fact that not even death is an automatic removal from combat is problematic.
