Old Effect: The screen darkens, as it should, your character can't move, as it should, but you keep blocking and able to rotate. If you release the block you get full normal freeze time afterwards. It may be cancelled by a staggering move or a timely dodge.

I decided to merge those three. I know that we're talking about two different skills and characters, but I believe the source of the problem might be the same.

 

And congratulations on your new record Wink

 

Thanks!

@EA_Ataashi
Thanks Ataashi!

 

I've rephrased the title of the report so it shows it's encompassing all 3 skills.

 

Yeah, they are all probably tied to the same issue, but I thought to spread out because it would be easier to search them.

So here I have another example of Kylo's Half Freeze. This is a lot better to visualize, and shows the exact weird effect chain that I described in the main forum (https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/127125/a-match-in-review-12-different-bugs-exposed-repo...). The video is already on the correct time to see the BUG

@EA_AtaashiIthink CHEWIEs freeze is also effected and too short.

Vaders Choke breaks off right after finishing up the lift up. Choke prolongation doesnt change anything on top of that.

@-DE-GarthRevan

What do you mean by Chewie's Freeze is also affected?

I was watching a match between some of the top PC players (JandyrBC, Enigma, Centryus, AWD075, avd75, 4imbotMarqsu), and I spotted another example of Kylo's Freeze Half Effect BUG:

Rey tries to block the freeze, but actually blocks during that window of time I described which is neither a successful block nor an unsuccessful block, but rather a "half" block, which causes those weird effects I described. As she releases her block she gets frozen, and just after it she's freed by a forced movement effect and the half-effect BUG is gone.
