"17725 battles" - after so many battles, you may need a new controller :)

Yep controller time for sure. One would think that those things would last at least 10 years! At $70 to $120 bucks a pop yea they should last a lot longer than they do.

Honestly, I've been having the same problem with my controller while playing world of tanks. All other games, it seems fine. I suppose I should try updating my controller also! Lol

Funny that, as I've been having issues with the right stick - the reticle sometimes begins to climb even though I've not touched the stick.

Doesn't do it on any other FPS games, though.

Strange...

 

I'd try other FPS games with similar movement actions on the left stick before committing to a new controller

You should get Joystick Mapper or some other software that let's you see what your controller is doing.

Both sticks and triggers are pots, not switches, so they could be off center and sending data (small values) when in idle position.

Every game has a different deadzone, and many of them now have an option to adjust it specifically to address this issue.

Could be connection issues but its doubtful. Likely a worn out controller.

The one that annoys me is that whenever I get tracked, as soon as i repair them, my tank lurches forward- usually back into the enemy fire that tracked me in the first place! I'm having now to pull the steering stick back whenever i use repair kits now, just in case...

You can try opening the controller and giving it a good clean. Check youtube for vids on how to do it. Have a second controller handy in case you break something ;)

Remember, it's just a game!

Good question that has been brought up about controllers useful life span. What do you recommend as replacement time? ten thousand games. I wonder if my controller is holding up I am rough on it.

Controllers usually last longer than marriages. It's dirt and grime mostly that causes issues.

imo the XB1 controllers aren't as durable as the XBox360. so be forewarned. i got the XB1 for better game play(for more processing power) but i really miss the 360 controller. :mellow:

This all depends on how well you treat them. If you don't drop/throw your controller the internals won't be jostled around causing wires or rumble packs to come loose. If you keep your controller clean (sweat, grease, even skin oils) the buttons and joysticks won't wear out nearly as fast. Also, try not to slam down the joysticks and buttons while playing (sometimes hard not to do in the heat of battle) as this will also cause them to wear faster.

Basically, just be gentle on them and keep them clean and they will last for quite a long time.

I have had my Xbox One controller since I got the console and have yet to come across any issues.

Xbox One Elite controllers say hello. Seriously, these things almost never break and are definitely worth the investment if you can get one on sale.
