    Title: Movement keys stuck
    Reproduction Rate: Random
    Details: The movement keys (compass or rotation) randomly go in stuck mode. The current movement direction continues after you stop pressing that key. Pressing other movement keys/arming and disarming/etc. eventually stops the movement (most of the time). It seems to end after X amount of time. Is it my keyboard causing this issue?
    Steps to Reproduce: Randomly occurs in any scene (Vauban Pass this time). It get messy when you're in combat and the direction key decides to continually go in that direction. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to it. Only thing that may be related is the keyboard freezes up for a second or two. However, it doesn't always result in continuous movement without keyboard interaction.

    Having spent sooo many hours in sota, I can honestly say, Ive not seen this.

    A few of us have seen where you toggle out and when you toggle back in, chat works but little else does, but you have to toggle, otherwise, I can honestly say that Ive not seen that, if your keyboard seems to freeze eg your numlock light wont change etc, then that does suggest a more localized issue.

    I have seen this happen with certain keyboards, so I suspect that this may be a hardware issue. Try using a different keyboard (different brand or model).

    I hope this helps!
