Warsong Brawl Flags Disappearing

Bug Report
So, many many times now, I've been running the flag, and it'll just disappear out of my hands. No mechanic was used to force me to drop it, no message in chat that reads, "Razorstorm has dropped the Alliance Flag!" ... just nothing. It vanishes.

Apparently, this has been happening to a lot of people.
It happens when the other team captures the flag. It's not 100% though and I'm not sure if the target is random or not.
It's super frustrating, that's for sure.
This is absurd. The last time WSG brawl happened, this wasn't the case... it's happened to me 3x in one BG so far.

3? I was just in a bg where I lost 4! FOUR!
This isn't just a druid problem, either. My demon hunter guildie was complaining about this when teaming up with me.
Also, when I die in WSG Brawl, I can't release from my body. I have to logout then log back in. When did this crap get so buggy!?

I haven't had that happen to me or have heard anyone complain about it. Make sure none of your addons are causing problems.

I disabled all my addons, but it's still doing it

I was the only person to grab a flag in one of my games and before I left the horde tunnel it was gone. They hadn't even grabbed one of ours let alone cap. It feels like a bug instead of something based on caps.

I've seen it happen on caps and I've seen all 3 flags stay held after 2 horde double capped. It is beyond messed up and didn't do this at all during the last brawl.
I've had this happen to me three times.

Once when I shifted into travel form (in the same BG, I saw a mage blink and her flag disappear, also).

Another time a demon hunter punched me right before I capped, and it made my flag disappear...and the last time, I was just about to cap, leveled a pvp level, and the flag disappeared.

I am a sad (trash) panda.
sounds like a hack
Had the same happen to my hunter. It's definitely bugged. It didn't happen on the last WSG Brawl.
its most likely a bug with the coding

when a team scores in normal wsg, it resets both flags. only one flag needs it at a time, but it was probably easier to code that way
its annoying when you only actually like two of the brawls and think the rest are either trash or meh

so two weeks out of every three months have brawls worth playing, but part of that gets wasted by game breaking bugs
Blizzard seriously can't do anything right. Last time WSS was around, this crap wasn't happening.

What the hell changed?

I've noticed that it happens to me a lot in one game and never happens in another game. So my solution was instead of running the flag I just escort it. So the 'work around' is finding someone who isn't experiencing the flag drop in that game and have them run it.

That happened to me twice yesterday when I was doing the Brawl. The first time it happened outside of the flag room and the flag was actually gone (couldn't be captured). The 2nd time it happened inside the flag room but I still got a capture when I ran over the flag area.

It is definitely odd. I thought it was just me...glad to know it's a bug of some sort.
I'm about to try it again. The last 3 games, it only happened once... and that was when I jumped off the balcony in our base to cap it, the flag disappeared in mid-air.

*sigh*
I was the idiot saying "I'm about to cap the winning flag" in a close match last night - only to get "CAP IT CAP IT" screamed at me 27 times afterwards...

So um...guys...about that flag I thought I had. Azeroth, we have a problem.
