I have an elite controller too and the paddles help, but since I use the driver config, no handbrake on paddle for me because you cannot map the triggers to a paddle. Seems a user customizeable button layout is sorely needed, since the defaults are not enough to make everyone happy / comfortable.

 

 fair enough, I've always just used the default control scheme which has handbrake bound to the dpad

It used to follow the camera though, so you could line the line up and see the enemies quicker. Now you have to wait for the turret to catch up, or rely less on the map when there are multiple enemies, and you are worried about a particular one.

Exactly this and thank you for confirming. At least some people know how the game has been for the last 6 years on PC and 3 years on Console.

​Sorry it effected your use in the D pad controller config. but there are many of us who are heavy thumbed that the hand brake on the stick ruined being able to play this game. The reason I use the D pad is due to having problems pushing down in the heat of battle. Other configs have cruise controls on stick and I was constantly engaging cruise control at the most inconvenient time.

 

Just curious, do you inadvertently click the right thumbstick also? If so how does this affect your game? If not how do you keep yourself from mashing the controller on one side but not the other?

Tanks must always push the battle, maneuver terrain, gain position, coordinate, and devastate the enemy.

Play like a TANK not a pill box! 

Move away from bad engagements and towards favourable ones.

Relocating does not make you a coward loser.

jump on the complain train with me, if stick mashers can complain about it and get their way so can us actual stick brake lovers. I'm pushing for alternate d pad cruise control that lets us have the d pad cruise control with stick brake, it's Fing stupid they didn't think of this with the hot patch, especially for 360 you know the ones that even if they wanted to they can't remap controllers!

WG where are your hotfixes now? Just add it back in with the hand brake option as a separate control scheme. Or make hand brake a toggle. DO ANYTHING SAY ANYTHING. Why are you being silent?

Any news on the battle ended bug. Had it happen again twice more this morning even after the hotfix.

Never had it before the last update.

Mind if I make a suggestions? I've messed around with the controls a little, specifically the button remap. I set the control scheme to the default setting in game, then go through the console settings and remap down on the d-pad, which is hand break on the default controller scheme, to A button. 

 

It feels pretty good to be honest. No more fumbling round the controls, no more accidental stopping :)

that's not a problem anymore, what we all want now is the hand brake back on the stick because some of us know how to control our thumbs and don't click down on the stick unless we want our brake

I use driver scheme so I know we have The good life for our handbrake.
That being said, I would like to know why people who do not have the ability to not mash the stick managed to mess it up for people who get the idea to be light on the sticks. Any other game would have left it alone and by now you guys would have adapted. Why WG have done is slow your ability to learn. This could have been your opportunity to learn more. Adapt faster. But instead you cried that it's not fair until you got your participation medal. So well done in fixing your game... but share a thought for the people who's games you handicapped

what bugs me is they had 3 to 4 other options but they go with the one that completely removes it from the game for a clear section of the community.

Learn more?  

 

For players who have medical issues with their hands, how could they learn more?  How can they teach their hands to regain fine motor skills?  How can they teach their hands to be easier on the sticks?  

 

As has been previously stated, I don't recall seeing anyone whining to WG to remove the handbrake. No post I have seen said that. I think the handbrake is a great addition. 

 

Lastly, please refresh my memory. When did the handbrake get introduced to the game?

I mean, I'm really ticked off.

 

We just got the thing, I just learned how to use it, and you took it away from my preferred controller set-up.

 

...AND MY PREFERRED CONTROLLER SET-UP IS THE ONLY ONE WITHOUT THE HANDBRAKE?!?

 

I must say my dear chaps, I find all of this quite upsetting and severely distressing.
