tilted character

I have been noticing that my character stays tilted when im doing.. anything. This did occure very rarely. But for some reason its happening a lot more lately. And with that actually starts bothering me. Searching through the forums i see some other people had same issues. But never really has been shed light on from Anet's side. So im hoping this come to attention (again). The screenshot displays exactly what i mean. And no it hasnt been editted. This is a straightup screenshot from the game

    Yeah....I've noticed an increase in tilted population recently.

    Why doesn't it fall over?

    Yes, this has been a re-occuring issue for weeks now. It happens a lot.

    Edit - Adding screenshots:

  • I'm glad I'm not the only one noticing this lol.. thought there was something wrong with my client.

    For about 1.5 to 2 months now, player characters are constantly tilting with the terrain, i.e. producing a 90° angle between the character and the ground beneath their feet (stairs, hills and other types of slopes they are standing on) instead of keeping upright, as gravity demands, and bending their knees to make up for any inclination in the terrain.

    It's a bug you can't ignore as it looks truly comical, especially when you manage your character to take a position at ledges to look like they were lying flat in the air.

    Can we please get an official statement on whether devs are aware of this and working on a fix? Thanks.

    Yeah, this is really annoying. It actually happens right after your character is CC'd (knock down, launch, push back, etc.) by any enemy, at least in my experience.

    Is this one of those "sorry we messed with the old code and don't know how to fix it" situations? Please find a solution.

  • It's been happening for me too. On one occasion it resolved after I toggled some of the graphics options. Just today, however, not even that worked, and it was only resolved after I changed map.

    And I agree with others....quite a frustrating bug (at least for me)

    There does not seem to be a clear rule on what's causing it. Sometimes I just run around with a zerg in WvW without fighting and my character starts tilting with the terrain. At one time, I was casting as a HFB on a ledge and my character tilted 90° in the air, feet on the ledge. When I stopped casting, it normalized for a bit. Totally random.

    The common denominator is getting forcefully moved, unless WvW has it's own shenanigans at play, yet "random" is a cheap excuse for avoiding saying "I don't know".
    Mind that the CC doesn't need to come from a player's skill. You can get slapped by a hammer, shot by a trebuchet, dismounted through damage... pick your poison, and it'll still end up tilting the character, and, as I've said in the linked thread, you can go for hours without noticing it because you've been doing stuff and not focusing on your own animations, since the issue has to get either forcefully corrected by changing the model via a tonic, for example, or by an /emote, or standing still, in some cases.

    Which already suggests not all tilts are angled equal, and as such, by all means, test stuff, notice stuff, note down stuff and help the devs with information.
    Just don't run around saying "God did it". Hurts everybody in the end.

    Just added screenshots to my first reply. It's like that all the time, sometimes up to 90° (see second screenshot).

    I've had it a 2-3 times since the top of the year. Seems to quickly reset itself. I haven't had it enough to bother me.

    Of course now I've said that, it'll prob happen every few minutes...

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    ...or you might just notice it more often. ;) Since PvE isn't a constant running up and down a hill, it's probably less noticeable than in WvW:

    It's not a question of not noticing it, it's a question of WvW being more about being on your feet. In in pve if I'm not in combat, then I'm zooming about on a mount - and more often than not the skyscale or raptor. Titlting isn't going to crop up when flying or leaping around.

    I'be tried to play HoT more in the traditional non mount way recently so that's why I've started noticing it
