Weird Blocking Bug

edited September 19 in Bugs and Known Issues
I'm exploring act four right now, and I turned on auto fight for most fights. One fight, I wanted to turn it off and play the fight, but i noticed that my character was holding block, even when I wasn't touching block at all. I could still control my character by swiping and tapping, but when I finished my action, it went right back to blocking. I turned on my screen record when I noticed and activated the thing that reads your swipes.

    well someone doesn't like me judging by the disagrees, but it happened again todayv in act four. Same scenario-i turned off the ai mid fight and it held block. I turned the ai on and off again and that didn't solve the problem

    I just tested it and nothing happened so maybe you have a fingerprint on your screen or something on the block side. It has happened to me before

    that's possible, but the reason I don't think that's the case is because I can interrupt it with any action. if I manually hold block, I can't do anything until I let go of block. Also, it doesn't happen every time, so it seems like it would be hard to reproduce

    Really? Because I hold block when dexing specials. It also could be a screen protector issue if you have one, or a real bug

    if you mean that you hold block then swipe back to dex, then yes, that happens. What I mean is say your left hand is holding block and your right hand tries to swipe forward. What happened to me is that you could swipe but then it immediately holds block. Good point about my screen though. I might check it out

    Yeah, it could be like the bottom corner where it doesn't affect anything but blocking.

    Inputs have been super messed up for a lot of people in my alliance and in the forums for a few months. I haven’t seen any direct response to it.

    How did you record your swipes btw? That could really help me show what’s going on to the devs.

    This is a bug, yes, and I'm able to replicate it almost 10/10 times. Guess the infinite block was fun while it lasted, not that it was good anyways. It's not a screen thing or mis-input, it's an interaction with player AI and blocking.

    my phone has an inbuilt screen recorder, and Im pretty sure every phone has some sort of screen recorder. the one my phone has something that traces my inputs like that

    good to know that someone else has the problem. I haven't used the ai recently, or at least after posting on this thread the second time
