Emperor's aura bug

So, it doesn't happen often, but when it does it's pretty annoying. In a nutshell the slowing effect of the aura sticks to you for the rest of your current life, that means even when you are out of the actual aura, and even ten minutes after for instance, I am not sure in what circumstances happens but it has to do with how you get out of the aoe, wish I could be more useful there. As soon as I will have some footage of the bug in effect I will gladly provide it

  • Happened to me as yoda the other day.
  • I've noticed a couple of times now, Droid grunts stuck frozen, unmoving but also unkillable and not doing anything. They're like statues.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    This particular bug has you running really slow, at snail pace, but definitely alive and can still use Dodge and hero movement abilities, it happened to me as Rey and Luke on GA and I could use charge and saber dash to move around. What you experienced if I got it right, is dead people still standing, that usually happens with Luke's repulse and I've seen it a lot of times, that one's nasty too. If there wasn't Luke around and you are sure the emperor was the cause then we can add it to the list of things dark aura breaks. Another thing, if somebody happens to experience it and have footage please post it here.

    I can confirm it works on regular troopers too, it happened to me with the heavy. And it wasn't the usual sentinel bug(after sentinel sometimes you are stuck at that moving speed), in fact using sentinel the speed would be reduced even further.
  • Alright guys, if you met this bug, this is the official report page: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Emperor-Palpatine-s-Dark-Aura-disables-sprint-and-jump/m-p/7197297/highlight/true#M20085
    So check it out and push that me too button.

    I've only seen it happen twice, thus far, and to Separatist droids. I do know there were plenty of heroes around at the time, but I don't recall if Luke was among them. Yes, they were just standing there, dead as can be, but not removed or crumpled over as dead.
  • Speaking of the Emporer, today, on Tatooine, I was hit by chain lightning, around a wall .. and the after image showed the Emporer in a completely different location.. like in a building a block away.

    At least this has an explanation, it could have bounced throughout your teammates to you, I've seen it happening several times, especially with the more bouncing star card.
  • The other thing is, I'm getting killed from what seems like random events. I'm starting to think my own home DSL router probably sucks something awful and is just dropping key packets. Specialists and officers are appearing out of thin air and killing me. Detonators are exploding through solid rock. Solid rock. The flip side of this, some other players out there probably can't believe their luck at how dopey some of the enemy players are running around out in the open. :-/
  • Also cannot comprehend how far chain lightning spreads. Yesterday, I could have sworn I was sufficiently far enough away from the Emporer, but I still got wrapped up in chain lightning.

    In arcade, without any card to extend it, I've hit 6 troops with one chain-lightning, and it may be even more that you can do, just haven't had 7 troops near enough to each other yet, to see if you can get more without a star card upgrade. I know you were talking about distance, but there could have been 5 other people between you and him at just the right distance apart, for it to work.

    It would seem they fixed this bug from today's patch notes, cheers.

    Edit: this is actually incorrect, bug still happens
