Randomly, my tank will not respond to any command but keep going forward/backwards/turning.

Anyone else experienced the same problem?

Do I have to look for a new keyboard (Trust products are cheap junk anyway) or is it lag? I've been blessed with low ping these last days which makes the issue even more annoying.

It’s not ur keyboard, I get it frequently on Mac and Windows laptop...

It either keeps driving - usually straight into red guns or won’t fire - waits until red behind cover and then shoots, so annoying...

I just write it off as bad rng or lag - otherwise I’d go nuts like Canny or Strummer and think it was rigged ;)

I had that a while ago, on my old Nexus 9, but not seen it on the new iPad. I do get a stuck turret, though, which is really [edited] annoying.

Yeah, had the same, eventually got disconnected then re-connected but the battle was largely over by then.
Then lost connection at the battle summary screen, all the time ping reported at around 30.
Maybe the servers still need some fixing...

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

I think it's a different issue. Lag vs. server behaving badly.

When tanks float/sink, it's clearly a lag problem - the client uses the last speed/direction info coming from the server, so tanks go in a straight line/turn endlessly. And it affects your tank as well as other tanks in the battle. Eventually the client receives new data ("teleporting" tanks), or the buffer time expires and the battle freezes.

The issue described in this topic is different in that only my tank is affected. It's like the opposite: the server momentarily uses the last speed/direction info coming from the client, but the client is still receiving data and displays the other tanks behaving normally.

when in game select the settings icon and then exit back into the game, this seems to reset the controls.

control problems seem to occur more this update.

That's good to know, thank you.

Usually it lasts "just enough to notice" (or for your tank to get tracked/hit/ammorekt :angry:) but in those cases when it lasts long enough for me to reach for the ESC key, it might save me a battle... no it can't.
