Just had my first Joystick lockup since the patch ? Anyone besides me had it ? Rejoined game and after battle was disconnected from server...so couldn't see the results of game. Hope this is random....I am unlucky you know...

Never had it since the patch ... but there are other, less frequent kinds of joystick lock. 

 

One is that after opening the team list while waiting for battle to start, stick doesn't react (100% reproducible here) ; just press <esc> and 'return to battle'.

Another one is that stick doesn't react, but unlike the infamous recent joystick bug, your plane moves backwards/sideways/down and eventually crashes. No way to get control for a very short time (like the joystick bug) using sniper view and cause your plane to crash.

And the third one is when you get a view of your plane from the front and it flies backwards away from spawn (could be caused by using hat switch to look back at the moment you were killed).


Flying on EU, NA, ASIA and CIS servers

I had the second one last night.  Firing at an AA position then tried to pull away and the nose stayed aimed at the AA and the plane rotated on the AA but kept original direction of travel until it was flying sideways at which point it seemed to lose lift and floated down to the ground and was destroyed.  Only happened once.  At this point I'm just waiting for the aliens to show up.

That sounds like server desync.
