Broken back, hunchback, p i m p walk, Gimpy, are some of the ways this graphic error has been described. It often happens when finished fighting bigger mobs, your still all gimped over like you broke sumpthin. it is a very annoying graphical error.

Screenshot to follow... Stay tuned

LOL I hate that bug...

The best thing is the choo-choo hand movements you make, while running, when you have it.

It has been in the game a very long time, I'd love for them to fix it too... but I'm not holding my breath.

Yes please fix this SMILEY also the bug where you remain laying on the floor after rezzed as if you are still dead (but you can still fight, move around, and jump) but you just remain motionless in a laying down position.

Also, the mobs that remain standing after they die (as if they really aren't dead!)

I"m fairly certain it's a glitch with the bow firing animation.  It's hilarious.

I always called that the "Gangsta Lean". Most favourite bug ever.

I hope they don't fix it.

Yeah this brokeback bug has been around since at least Kingdom of Sky, probably a lot longer.  Hard to believe it was never brought up before now in any way.

I've seen it. It can't be fixed on art end. It's how code handles transitions in and out of certain states/

You'd have to play the game to see it SMILEY

But yeah, I don't see how anyone that plays the game could not have seen this many, many times over.  I believe its been happening since release, but has become more common over the years.

Its not usually seen by everyone when it happens either.  Sometimes you see it on yourself and no one else does, or someone else sees you doing it and you dont see it at all.

Been playing the game for years; some family members playing since beta. None of us have seen this.  Guess we don't have the 'right' combination.

Thats funny, cause the players I've been playing with since launch can remember this happening back in orriginal release.  Usually happens to tanks when bow pulling.  I'm sure the transition on and off mounts for combat is making it worse as well.

It's definitely a bug with the bow, since I almost always play scouts and they tend to get the glitch quite a bit.

Played off and on since release, various capped characters, raiding, etc. - also never seen it. I also never play any bow-using character/rangers/etc., so that would seem to be a common cause if folks who see it often are playing them. See? Something like that is actually useful to fixing the bug, whereas obnoxious "everyone knows about this bug lol" posts are not helpful in any way to the resolution of problems.

If you want it fixed post about it, give detailed information and screenshots on how to reproduce it, and move on. SMILEY You can complain about something all day but if they can't reproduce it, they can't fix it. You can say people "bugged" it years ago, but did they bug it in a way that was reproducable? If not, and noboyd was able to reproduce it, no fix. Or maybe it slipped through the cracks, who knows, but as someone with a half dozen characters who has played for years I have never seen it, so this isn't some constantly-happening-for-everyone-since-release-omg-bug everyone is experiencing.

My templar buddy I've been playing game with since release, has seen my model do this since then as well.

Its not just happening on the screen of the bow wielder.

You simply must not be paying much attention to the bow users around you to not have seen this.

It's a bug between the "resting idle" animations and the fighting animations.  There's a glitch and you don't go back to rest, as it were, but do that lean.  At least that's how it was explained to me some time back when I asked a dev at a Block Party.

Sometimes I see it on my toons, but I most often see it on others.  I've played since launch so have seen this many many a time.  It's still hilarious. SMILEY

This is exactly the kind of detail we need to narrow it down.

Thanks everyone!

P.S. I haven't played with a bow for any length of time myself...though I saw a tank playing at SOE Live get stuck in that weird state. And their group member on the machine next to him wasn't seeing it...

We will investigate!

I wish I could get the gansta lean. But healers can not use bows.
