Stuns in BG's?

Anyone else have a major issue with breaking stuns in BG's? Not sure if it happens in Cyro because I spend most of my time in BG's but what is happening? I'm near full stam and nothing happens or it happens waaaaay too late might as well have just eaten the full stun (if you live) instead of breaking free. There are some stuns/knockbacks that are really wonky, like the templar javelin pin or stuns similar to that, I could be wrong. I break free but I spend at the very least a second if not more like, getting up from the animation or something. Not calling out templars or anything (as I am running one currently myself - no jav stun tho) but there's a lot of weird stuns that I can't seem to get out of. Or when I do it's a waste of the stam to have broken free because I damn near ate the whole stun anyways. Kinda new to BG's and I'm having fun but I feel like sometimes there's no counter play to some stuns. Sucks dying like 3 seconds into a stun when if it would have just broken free the first second, I might have had time to do some offense. I dunno, anyone else have issues with stuns?

    I think most everyone does, at least from time to time. Sometimes it's probably just lag, but some stuns can be a bit glitchy. Lots of people want to complain about Vamp Drain right now - and over the last few days I've had it cause me some occasional issues, where I don't remember having trouble with it in the past - but it's hardly the only thing that can be a problem.

    The worst I ever remember experiencing was the pre-nerf shield bash stun + major defile; that was nearly impossible to break free from sometimes, and every stam build that ran it (which was a giant % of them) had really high damage and defense to go along with it. So even if you did manage to break free before death, the defile made it almost impossible to heal up the damage and/or get on the offensive before the next glitchy stun came along.

    There's another bug that can sometimes cause you to slide around on the ground after breaking free - able to move as though you've successfully gotten out of the CC, but unable to use any abilities for a few seconds.

    I hate this bug. Sometimes it feels like there is a minimum about of time you have to be stunned for, during which you can't breakfree.

    Seems like it might be associated with stuns that cause your character to go into some kind of animation, like fear or knock up.

    I think it’s tied to the animation. Stuns that make your character move to get knock backed can’t be broken until after the animation.
    Looking for any guildies I used to play with:
    Havoc Warhammer - Alair
    LoC EQ2 - Mayi and Iskiab
    Condemned and Tabula Rasa - Rift - Iskiab
    Or anyone else I used to play games with in guilds I’ve forgotten

    yup "performance" patch just made it worse for pvp players all around, but Pve, running instances and so on, they are happy, fast loading more fps. ZOS is really trying to kill off the remaining pvp´ers. so they can go all out on pve and crown store.

    About 2 years ago devs changed the data transmission or API and BREAKFREE became very lousy, but with this patch it became even worse. And this is not to mention the out-of-sync in pvp due to those changes

    Still completely broken, might as well go into bg with 0 stam as a mag class. At first I thought it was certain stuns but no it seems to be every single one. Mash break free over and over and nothing usually. So Cyro is broke, bg's are broke, no more money from me. Bye ESO, loved ya when ya worked.

    Sometimes Break Free just doesn't want to work, but certain stuns are definitely worse than others. The bash stun from 1h/shield skill line, for example, is really godawful.
