“Sticky Feet” bug

There has been an issue that comes back time and time again, sometimes it’s fixed, but it always resurfaces every couple of updates. I’m sick of it, and it needs to be addressed. There is an issue that occurs across various devices and operating systems, network types and strengths, using any champion in any mode against any opponent on any map. I am not the only who has experienced this bug. It’s most noticeable when an enemy champion is about to heavy attack you, you go to dash back, but your champion stands still instead, gets hit by the heavy attack, and more lilely than not, ends up dying. This issue of the champion being unresponsive to inputs is not exclusive to this scenario, I have had my champion fail to perform a dash attack, fail to block, and fail to perform special attacks in scenarios where I was intercepting, baiting, and even mid combo. This is a bug where the game’s controls will not be fully responsive at all times. It is not my hands, it is not my phone’s touch screen, it is not my reaction time. This is an issue with the game, it has been happening a significant amount since the most recent app store update. Fix this.

    Thought this was a joke then it happened to me in both AQ and AW.

    After getting bombarded with bugs in AQ I thought hmmm lets see if it happens in AW as well. Same thing, now my alliance is wondering how I died to such weak champs nowhere near my usual lane clear.

    I have never had an issue with sticky feet in the past until the most recent update. There’s no reason I should be losing multiple champs to an easy mordo in aw. I agree with the previous post that aq and aw are where the bug shows it’s ugly face most often. Of course you wont give any compensation for this because you don’t care about the majority of the player base, but fix it ASAP!

    It's completely random and has never been fully fixed by them or even properly addressed by them either.

    All of them are a part of the numerous combat issues that have been put under eternal investigation without much initiative on their part and no sense of urgency to fix or address them.

    Despite all the evidence we've provided to fix all of these and the sheer amount of money they make off of us and I'm kinda getting sick of it.

    I'm tired of seeing an attack coming and knowing I can get away from and to try to swipe away or block it only for them just to sit there and eat it or have something else go wrong.

    Even when they do manage to listen they either get a short dodge back or the ai gets an extra hit box and stretches out to hit us even if we're out of their range and this happens with all kinds of champions against all kinds of champions on mutiple devices for me.

    I'm also tired of my champions getting stuck in block and refusing to move or they either randomly drop them or charge into an enemy or just start attacking the air.

    I'm also tired them not wanting to use their specials over and over even when I'm tapping them which makes our champions do some weird block dance or they just sit there.

    Not to mention there's times the ai just goes on to another plane of existence just starts blocking, parrying, evading, just about everything and being hyper agressive or hyper passive in regards to their special use.

    This makes combat a frustrating mess, there are times that everything is fireing on all cylinders and the controls and movesments are smooth and things are going great but other times everything just devolves into frustrating insert money here mess where nothing works right and you want to break your phone or device and you wonder why the hell do I still play.

    I like this game but it needs some work and some downtime and more stable servers to go back to where it used to be as opposed to where it is now.

    @Kabam Vydious @Kabam Zibiit can I at least get some acknowledgement here. This is not the same as the bug where you can’t dash back after blocking, this is a separate bug where control responsiveness will randomly go out the window.

    Yeah, getting these too at times. Not real often though.

    This was never addressed, but the bug has reared it's ugly head again. @Kabam Miike any word on improving the responsiveness of inputs? Or whatever the root issue is here?

    This is a performance-based issue where we'd need to further investigate by knowing certain items of information. Please go to the thread below and fill out the provided template:
