Since this is my first post, let me just sing UBI's praises a bit on how amazing the multiplayer is for this game. I have learned to get by with 4 hours of sleep a night so I can play PT non-stop.
Now, I have encountered many of the glitches posted in other threads, and they are annoying and mar an otherwise perfect game. I have every confidence UBI is working on them though, no sense adding my complaints. There is one in particular I have found quite lethal however and I haven't seen it mentioned yet. Am I alone in this one?
I'm a merc engaging an aggro spy (as usual) and he starts dropping smoke all over the place while running circles around me (as usual). Normally I'm quite capable of dealing with this and can hold my own in this situation. But in the last four days or so, I've been hitting some sort of problem where as the smoke is dropping, I get frozen in place. I can still shoot but I can't move and when I try to turn it just rotates the camera around, not my gun. This only lasts for 2 or so seconds, but in that time the spy will usually get behind and grab me. If I make it past that 2 second mark, everything returns to normal.
I have witnessed a glitch which acts likes this (freezing the merc), but as far as I've seen that one is permanent, unlike mine. And no, it's not the spy grabbing me, I know what that feels like and this ain't it. This only happens when I get smoked (even if the spy is not close), and I really think being close to a wall seems to set it off more often. I had never encountered this before a few days ago, and now all of a sudden it's happening a few times a game. I'm getting more then my fair share of neck re-adjustments as a result.
Has anyone else encountered this? I just need to know I'm not alone...
