Bouncing Back?

When I'm running to Simeon or Bartelby in Ravenwood, I keep bouncing back and bouncing back. It's very frustrating, and I have to go around the center. Has anyone else experienced this?

Same here.

Oficially it is called: "rubberbanding", since it resembles running away being tied to a rubberband that forces you to jump back to where you started.

It happens to me quite often and I also have to take the sidewalk to avoid it. No clue what causes it, but it defininately can be quite annoying when it does happen. Switching realm sometimes fixes it also.

Yes, me too. I thought it was just me, so I didn't report it. But, it's happened more than once, not every time but several times.

Yes, there's something weird -- or perhaps haunted -- about that circle in front of Bartleby.

If this is a bug, I don't think they should fix it. I think they should just work it into the story line.

(This was done in "City of Heroes", by the way. A bug in the program that made NPCs wander in bizarre patterns in a particular spot was later memorialized by a plaque explaining a strange phenomenon at that site.)

We have (hopefully) squashed this bug in the July 29th update, but definitely let us know if you see it after that date!

It has happened to me to, so I have to a big turn to the right and get out of the problem.
