PLAYERS: IF YOU DEPLETE ALL YOUR STAMINA BAR, THIS BUG GETS FIXED. CHECK THE FASTEST METHOD TO DEPLETE STAMINA IN THE 1ST VIDEO BELOW
(TIME STAMPS: 1 min 12 sec to fully check the process, or 1 min 30 sec to only check the actual fastest stamina depletion method itself)
The best I can provide is in this video:
In this newer video you just need to allow kylo to freeze you twice in a row, and the BUG will get activated.
There's also this older video that shows another method to reproduce this BUG. which works since April 2018 at least:
To summarize it: I block Vader's Choke in the exact moment between a successful Block and an unsuccessful block, which leads to a bad state where you take damage, gets slower, but remains walking and blocking. If you simply let go, you resume the choking animation (this BUG which I called Vader's Choke Half Effect BUG is covered here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Half-Effect-BUG-Maul-s-Choke-Hold-Kylo-s-Freeze-Vader-s-Choke/... ). However, if you try to dodge away during this bad state, with some trial and error, you'll trigger the Disabled Block BUG state, which can only be fixed by either respawning or depleting your stamina.
However, this doesn't mean this BUG is associated with Vader's choke, but it's the only case I've been able to reproduce (now there's the new Kylo's Freeze method since the Chosen One Update). I opened this new thread because Ewok Patch has come and this hasn't been adressed yet.
I hope this finally gets fixed once and for all.
Also, I leave here this match (December 2018) as another great mark for the existence of this BUG: I endured it happening 5 times in the same match, had to use the method of depleting stamina 5 times to get back to the fight properly, and even then I managed to die only once, and do a 41 killstreak as Rey.
Guess what? They didn't fix this yet. Well done! This BUG is completing 7 months of age (or more, if Beta testers can provide proof it happens since beta). This is tiresome. There's not a single day of playing this game that I don't see at least 3 BUGs (take into consideration the daily crate BUG happens everyday)
I'm bumping this because of course this was never fixed and never even acknowledged either here, or in any official info from the dev team.
This BUG has a interesting side effect which is a visual glitch on Rey's Dash Strike.
I have SOOOOOOOOOOO many clips of this side-effect I might as well make a bloopers video JUST with these.
Please DICE fix this annying BUG once and for all. I've already provided so much to get rid of it, yet nothing came as a response, absolutely nothing.
Yep, I got this bug today. It's extremely annoying and makes being a hero pointless in some situations.
Yes, I know there is a fix but I had forgotten how to do it after not playing the game for months.

Since the November or December updates, this BUG has become much more frequent in HvV. With Rey we can know it has happened when she triggers theDash Strike Visual BUG (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Rey-s-Dash-Strike-Visual-BUG/m-p/7288862#M20756), but with the others only a failed blocking animation can show this to us, or by blocking and failing in a damaging situation (which usually results in death).
What I've been doing lately when I realise I triggered the Disabled Block BUG is jumping and attacking while jumping. It consumes much more stamina, so 4 of these in fast sequence are enough to completely drain your stamina, and to fix the Disabled Block BUG with it.

I was watching a match between some of the top PC players (JandyrBC, Enigma, Centryus, AWD075, avd75, 4imbotMarqsu), and I spotted another example of the Disabled Block BUG:
Video already in correct time to see the BUG
So it must have been caused by this interaction of lightning, dodging, attacking, and maybe getting also attacked by kylo, all in a very short moment.
