AMD or Nvidia Model Number irrelevant
Enter RAM memory size in GB irrelevant
What is your gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name? irrelevant
Please provide your squad mates' gamertag/PSN ID/EA Account name if possible. irrelevant
Which Legend were you playing (if applicable)? irrelevant
Which Legends were your squad mates using (if applicable)? irrelevant
Where did the issue occur? In the lobby (waiting area before the match)
Which part of the map or menu were you in? If you don't remember the exact name, please describe the area or what you were trying to do in the menu. keybind settings
What were you doing when the issue occurred? E.g. respawning a squad mate at a beacon, using an ability, a squad mate left the game. restarting the game
Did your squad mates also experience the issue? I don't know
How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? any
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) irrelevant
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Minor impact to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? When assigning the tilde-key a "\" is shown. (Everything works normal) After game restart a "~" is shown instead. (Key does not work anymore.)
What should be happening instead? well, no rebinding of that key.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Assign the tilde-key to any keybinding. The key works. Restart the game. The key does not work. After reassigning the key it works again.

Using german keyboard layout. The tilde-key prints a "^" and not a "~" on german keyboards.

Also it is really a struggle how many questions there are in this form that have to be answered but are irrelevant for the bug I wanted to report. Please change that as well.

How many matches had you played in a row before the issue occurred? 0
When did this happen? (dd.mm.yy hh:mm) Every day
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
How severe is your issue? Minor impact to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? When the game is restarted or crashes, anything mapped to the button above tab on the keyboard (registers as "/" by the game, but is "§" on my keyboard layout) using the controls menu gets remapped to "~" and stops registering as an input in game.
What should be happening instead? The control mapped to "/" should stay mapped to that button and continue working even after the game is restarted.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Map anything to "/" and restart the game. Check control menu, it will have remapped and not work in game any longer before you remap it manually again. If this doesn't reproduce the issue, try Nordic keyboard layout.

Champion

The some keys are reserved to bring up the console in developer mode.

It is reset in order to maintain security in the game.
