Strange new Auto-back-turning towards enemy. Bug or intended?

I don't remember this being always there. When did it start? When playing as a villain and I am pushed by Luke or Yoda; on recovery I now end up with my back turned towards them... and they can dash in and wallop me in the back until dead. Never remember it doing this before. Plus I've noted it when spawning back in as a trooper in GA, Blast, Strike and even Ewok Hunt I think.... that I spawn facing the POV camera...ie my back turned to the action. So if I spawn in amongst a group of enemy players I am promptly stomped without any means of defense. I've also noted an inability to react if I am being stomped... I just get bludgeoned into the ground with no hope of responding until the opposition creates a split second break in the attack....then I "might" be able to get off an ability move. I don't remember it ever being this way. There even seems to be a delay in applying an ability after being struck repeatedly. Anyone else have this?

    Weird. Sounds like a bug, unless this is when spawning on your squad in which case it's because you spawn facing the same direction as the player you spawn on.

  • Perhaps...I will have to pay even more attention during squad spawning. But it doesn't explain the Ewok or especially the hero/villain back turn after a push/unleash? Anyone else?
  • LOL I thought this thread was about Kylo Ren frenzying everyone BUT the person you're looking at/intending to.

  • As a simple test -- choose any villain and go up against Yoda for example --- and note how your character lands after an unleash. Facing you? Then try a villain against Luke....
