Please fix the weird tilting already! [Merged]


Recommended Posts

I just did the daily DRMs, and since Fireheart Rise has a lot of uneven terrain, the character tilting was extremely noticeable...

This has been going on for three months now, and we still have not received any official statement on behalf of this awful bug. My character has been roaming Tyria in weird angles for that long, and it starts looking comical. 😕

It makes the game look like the devs don't know how to program character alignment according to the laws of gravity, but we all know that is not true, because it wasn't the case prior to a patch from late December/early January - before, it used to be an occasional bug, now it's the rule.

It is happening everywhere (not just in WvW) and mostly with weapons drawn:

Is anyone working on a fix or is the game simply going to look like this from now on?

I can't imagine this not affecting every race, though.   As correctly observed by others, the tilting always occurs whenever the character gets pulled, pushed or other such actions are appli

I wonder that, too. It's been happening to me a lot, as well. It's disorienting, especially when you're trying to make it up narrow ledges. Thus far, it has only been affecting my human characters, but I have seen reports of it happening with the Norn as well.

Are you certain? I don't know what game modes you play and how much you fight on uneven terrain, but I - personally - don't know a single player who isn't affected by it. It mostly seems to happen when you character has their weapon drawn and enters fight mode, but sometimes it also happens with weapons stowed simply walking across uneven grounds.

You don’t know a single person not affected... I don’t know a single person that is affected by it, and if they are they haven’t mentioned it while I’ve been online (5-10 hours per day) and I haven’t seen on my screen anyone that looks out of place.

It has been happening to me semi-regularly, regardless of which map. I think mainly on my human characters. It seems to happen randomly, not necessarily with weapons drawn.

My character will suddenly, violently tilt to a near 45 degree angle, swing back upright, tilt again etc. all depending on ?? I have no idea. The angle is almost always at 45 degrees & can swing left or right, back upright etc.

At first I stopped in place to see what the heck was going on, but couldn't see a reason. Never saw anyone else in chat, or here on the forum mention it, so I just accepted that this was some new tease for an updated event of some kind, that I was unaware of.

Lately I was starting to think it was just me... so thank you to @Ashantara.8731 for calming an old lady's fears. ;)

The worst part is that it definitely makes me feel physically sick when it happens. I've never had vertigo, but imagine this is a pretty good simulation of an episode of that.

But I've also checked on this for you and people are looking into it.If it helps any, I find this happens far more often on a thief running Daredevil and Bounding Dodger than any other class.

I have actually noticed this as well, seems to happen a lot more on my Daredevil than it does on my other classes.. and i'm also using Bounding Dodger as well.

The only character I've noticed this on is my Norn Guardian. One place I've seen it happen a few times is at the Krait Tower in Nonmoa Lake, Timberline Falls, as my character climbs up the wooden spars making up the tower.

I've also noticed it, mostly on the Krait structures in old Tyria (Timberline Falls and Mount Maelstrom). At first it was funny watching them tilt from side to side while they ran up the spars. It did get a little annoying after a while. Thanks for looking into it.

I experience this bug very often when I'm playing Holosmith. The main trigger appeared to be "Overcharged Shot", the rifle number four skill that launches your foe and does a self knock-back. I did some testing in Armistice Bastion, and I was able to trigger the bug with almost 100% success rate by using overcharged shot to knock myself back on a specific patch of uneven terrain.

Edit: When the bug triggers, it seems to stay in effect until I re-log.

I'm having the same issue here. Thought my video card was dying.

These green bars that shoot out just started yesterday for me. For anyone looking for a common denominator, so far based on what others have said, I don't match any of them. I was playing my level 80 Human Ranger / Soulbeast when the green bars started shooting out. There is nothing special about my build, weapons etc., very ordinary. There is nothing special about my computer & I don't use any added programs, just the regular client.

On the positive side, I was following World Bosses, so I was on a lot of maps, with lots of running around, all types of terrain & not once did my character tilt! Really felt good! I can live with the green bars, but was having a hard time with the tilting, so if it's a temporary trade off, I'll take the bars.

Yes please! I just came back to the game this month and the first thing I noticed was my character would run and stand horizontal and tilted whenever the ground was a hill or bumpy. Its freaky looking, what changed that caused this? So unless im on completely flat ground they lean and tilt. I will start taking screens and you can see what I mean.

It used to happen when you used an emote like /sit and dodged out of that, but it now happens regardless of what you have done. And while it was funny at first, it's becoming really annoying. Most prominently i noticed it on my Deadeye, but it happens on other classes too.
