Lightsaber Block Disabled BUG with a Solution!

This is a BUG present since November in this game, and I'm sure many people don't even notice it happening, and many others can't grab some good footage to show it. Well here is a good video about it, and not only that, but I show the way to fix it without having to die or respawn as I learned somewhere here in the forums.



And please help report this BUG in this BUG report thread by clicking the me too and/or the XP button so devs look into it soon: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Lightsaber-heroes-villains-unable-to-use-block/m-p/6722475/highlight/false#M11963

@lerodemmy
I remember we discussed about this BUG earlier here in the forum, and the solution suggested to us actually works! Take a look in the video, I already managed to escape this bugged no blocking state a few times already doing this out of stamina solution.
Tired of BUGs?

  • I was wondering why my phone was blowing up with notifications on this...

    Thanks for the exposure, though just a heads up, this is an outdated thread. I've since reported it again with footage at the following link, to which EA Ataashi responded positively:

    https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Stamina-Glitch-unable-to-block/m-p/6667519/highlight/true#M9824

    Again, thanks for the exposure! With our combined efforts, it appears it's on their radar.

    The thumbnail looks like you want Rey removed from the game.

    Back on topic... big thanks to @GenxDarchi for posting the solution to the bug. It still happens to me in the majority of matches and, without that solution, I'd be making a lot more threads about this bug. Still, it's kind of unacceptable and will get you killed from time to time. It's always super annoying at the very least.

  • Played a whole game as Vader with no block yesterday in GA. I went full absolute Ninja Extreme Hibbity Hobbity Ssj4 Try-Hard Vader. Was honestly pretty fun. Hope they fix it eventually.

    Hmm, I ran out of stamina many times as Vader and still couldn't block. Usually with these bugs the thing that breaks the block has to happen again in order to fix the bug.

    Don't you mean, Ultra Instinct?
    We need a Tier System for the Heroes. It would justify the "op-ness" of Vader over Han and Chewbacca. It would cost much more to unlock Vader, and would require you to save a lot more than for other heroes and vehicles, but it would be rewarding in the end...

    Hey Folks,

    Just wanted to pop in here and state that we are definitely aware of this being an issue and the team is looking into it. There, unfortunately, isnt any more information to provide at the moment, but the team are definitely aware.

    That's good to hear. It must be difficult for them to pinpoint exactly what's causing the bug. It usually happens during saber fights. But it can also just occur randomly out of nowhere, even at the very beginning of a match.

    This is great to know! EA_Ataashi has confirmed the team was aware in answers.ea too, so this is great to know. It doesn't seem to be an easy bug to adress, and fortunately we have a way to unbug it without having to die or respawn. I hope you guys get to fix it soon, becaus eit's pretty bad for competitive matches.

    @Atreus213
    Thanks for the info, and I hope our efforts indeed put this bug in top priority as it really hurts the competitive nature of Heroes Vs Villains (and it also messes with GA, but there you should have a place and time to unbug it without a villain jumping out of nowhere right into you).

    @lerodemmy
    Yeah it does occur in some very different situations including on the beginning of the match, I've seen many different cases already. And about the thumbnail, I'm sorry :p, but you know that I know that we both know I'd never want Rey, my main Hero for HvV, out of the game :D

    What about bobas jetpack bug, and heroes not being able to jump or use abilities bug?

    If your abilities get disabled, it doesn’t work. If the block is disabled, attack OOS, and then keep attacking. If it still doesn’t work, IDK what will work.

    Great to know it was you Genx, I didn't remember who posted about it, I just remember lerodemmy was in the discussion :D

    It was only a lot later that I managed to use this solution against the bug, and I needed to do it more then once to believe. It has helped me a few times already.

    But at least it has that glitchy animation associated with it when using Rey's Dash Strike, so it can be used in some funny moments compilation :p

    Thanks Patterson. I shall add that this hasn't been fixed since pre-release. They had many patches since then. But the truth is, they have no skill to fix this.

    DICE has weak programmers dedicated to this game, and they use a black box called Frostbite. So, when a BUG is found, if it isn't solvable through the tools that frostbite gives them, they must delve inside frostbite inner workings, and that's a lot harder to do.

    They made the same mistake with Star Wars The Old Republic, but EA doesn't seem to care. If the game gives more money then its cost, then why caring about BUGs? Players will play and spend money anyway.

    And that's why this BUG, and MANY (I mean A LOT) of other BUGs couldn't be solved since launch, pre-release or Beta (I can't confirm from Beta as I didn't play it enough, my computer died during Beta).

    This bug is now more annoying than ever because it can cost you a Hero Showdown duel.

    It sure isn’t fun to try to block and then get hit several times by Vader and emoted when he kills you.

    It sure isn’t fun to try to block and then get hit several times by Vader and emoted when he kills you.

    Hero Showdown has made many BUGs a lot more relevant for winning/losing scenarios. Let's Begin:

    - Boba's Jetpack doesn't work (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Boba-Fett-Jetpack-Failure/m-p/6506145#M2643): In HvV, just respawn, or, if you're the target, try to stay alive until their target is defeated then respawns, but if you fail it's just one point. In Hero Showdown, you'll lose the round.
    - Lightsaber doesn't turn on (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Rey-s-lightsaber-not-working-in-Hero-Showdown/m-p/6799837#M14616): In HvV, just respawn, or, if you're the target, try to stay alive until their target is defeated then respawns, but if you fail it's just one point. In Hero Showdown, you'll lose the round.
    - Lightsaber becomes unable to block (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Disabled-Block-BUG/m-p/6763730/highlight/false#M13409): In HvV, you may respawn or find a safe place to deplete your stamina bar so it works again. In Hero Showdown, you'll lose the round as it's almost impossible to find a safe place with enough time to deplete your stamina.
    - Deploy Denied (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Deploy-Problem-in-HERO-SHOWDOWN/m-p/6802335#M14750): In HvV, just wait for someone to die and reselect his char, and you're good to go. In Hero Showdown your team will start with one less player, so you'll lose the round. If both players in the same team have this problem, it's am automatic lost round.
    - Corpses Attack You (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Ghost-Saber-still-around/m-p/6792424#M14414): In HvV, you'll just be hit and take some damage. You may die from this and even lose a point. In Hero Showdown this has a lot more impact as losing a player to this will even the teams, and losing health may be enough to get killed afterwards. Remember this bug hits you several times if you stay around the corpse that's bugged.
    - Palpatine's stun shock lingers in place (https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Shock-STUN-Effect-Stays-in-Place/m-p/6802416): In HvV, you may lose your life there, and also a point. In Hero Showdown, enemies can camp in place and you're going to have a really hard time fighting these guys, so you probably lost the round or in the best scenario you got a draw.

    I could go on and on and on and on because the buglist is infinite. But I think everyone got the point.

    I confirm this bug also, first I didn't even notice it was a bug, I though I somehow used block too much and consumed block and it wasn't available any longer, played long time with Yoda without block and I was trying to adapt and didn't die at least not very soon anyway, dodge was still working ok. Too bad this had to be a bug, I first thought it was a feature.
  • I even managed to give them a full step-by-step way of reproducing the BUG in a controlled environment, and they still didn't manage to fix this (https://battlefront-forums.ea.com/discussion/107875/triggering-disabled-block-bug-on-purpose-in-testing-environment#latest). I bet they didn't even look at it at all, like with the Bespin Out of Bounds glitches that they only adressed between 1 and 2 months after I reported the step-by-step on how to find them.

    The video where I show them how to recreate the BUG so they can analyze it with whichever debugger method they use for this game is here:
