As a former and possibly future joystick player, I wanted to put this out here to see if Persha is going to fix this issue:

 

It's a know issue:  Players using a joystick, upon respawn have no control over their planes.  

 

It seems like the response from Persha has been "play with a keyboard and mouse".  That is extremely silly as the game has supported joysticks for years and a great number of players use a joystick for better immersion in the game. 

 

Does Persha have a plan to fix this and if yes, in what timeframe?  If no, why not? 

 

In the past, this game has enjoyed good support for joystick users and I suspect that joystick users represent a pretty good amount of the current player population.  

 

I think the player population deserves a definitive and fast response to this issue.  It has been logged numerous times.  What is the status and when will it be fixed?  And if Persha has decided to not fix it, and abandon it like they did the gamepad, let us players know. 

 

We deserve at least some acknowledgement of this issue and the plan to either resolve it or ignore it.  

 

By the way, the lack of a plan to resolve it will likely lose you a lot of players, are you willing to take that on in light of the current population?

 

Thanks for any input.

I think so also after spending a few hundred dollars before xmas only  to have it wasted because after 20,000 plus matches the game is unplayable. I got 160 days of premium that I cant use,now down to 149 so thats a lot of time I paid before but cant use.

If they dont support js anymore then are we allowed to sell our accounts?

I wont play a flight game with a mouse and hate to see it go to waste.

I should go back and check out how much I have spent on this game through paypal.

Waaaaay too much obviously.

 

I cant use all the goodies I got in my 250 santa bags and hate to see them go to waste.

It will surely be fixed.  In true WG style, it will take too long and it will create four more bugs, but this bug will be fixed.

The only time they have ever acted quickly to fix a bug (that I can recall, atleast) is when they broke ADE and PE to give a 140% bonus instead of 40%...

 

And as fun as some of those builds were, it's a very good thing that they acted so quickly, compared to the several months it took to address the boost bug...

WG claims this bug has top priority ; but in over 2 weeks there hasn't been any update on this. You would think that they know which code was changed in the latest patch (they do use version control I hope ?) and with all the reports from people and what they try to work around this bug they would have at least made some progress ...

I start to wonder if they're going to drop joystick support completely. Seems we're only a small part of the player base.

 

Btw, quickest way to abort your sortie ; use a button on your stick - I use sniper view - and move the stick forward, strangely enough your plane will actually react this time to input and start to loop down, press button again to stop looping and you will crash pretty fast.

This is all over the EU and NA forums for 2 weeks now.

So what's the news from Russian player base ?? Any joystick users there ?

True - we're well into territory where some compensation would be the right thing.

Interesting.  However, if you do that you'd have to wait out the respawn timer, and I once had the respawn dead joystick bug happen two respawns in a row.  I'm getting pretty good at restarting the game quickly (SSD drive FTW) but I'm in the thick of the action over the central cap when I get back in battle, and if I'm in something manouverable I might down an enemy plane or two before I die in the furball.  I'm usually getting the problem around every 10-20 games.

 

WG doesn't need bug reports to work on such a frequent problem - or many of these other frequent bugs like stuck trigger and phantom bullets from nowhere...unless for some astonishing reason they don't actually play their own game.

Yesterday the game ran perfectly awful for me.  Worst day in a long time (barely 50% win rate).  I had stuttering, or rubber banding, black screens on battle launch, and over, and over again the joystick respawn bug.  So today I deleted and reloaded the game and defragged my hard drive.  Six games so far without a single glitch!  Coincidence?

Hi, Bobby.

 

I am not sure if you have been tracing the situation with the joystick issue and checked my answers but I will gladly repeat them. 

 

The problem with planes losing control after respawn when using joystick is officially recognized and the works have been started as soon as the needed data (including logs which I am really grateful for) was received. The key problem causing this issue was disclosed and the team is looking for the ways to fix it. To my greatest regret I cannot give any estimated time for the fix release but as soon as I am aware of it I will gladly inform you. 

 

I fully understand the inconvenience you are facing and the frustration caused but this particular issue takes much time and efforts from the team as the core triggers causing the problem are much more difficult that it may seem and require lots of work to be done. The joystick issue - as you might notice yourselves - has not 100% chance to be reproduced thus the team needs to reveal all the instances when this problem appears to take them into account when fixing. 

 

I passed your reports and feedback long ago and try to keep you updated on the process. Thank you for being involved and interested in the game.
