Is anybody else feeling that trying to repair your tank, or heal your crew, is a lot more frustrating using the Command Wheel lately?

 

On many occasions it just doesn’t do as you requested.

It often takes 3 or 4 attempts before it fixes what you asked for!

Crew and module damage is so high now some times I don't bother repairing at all.

 

Plus I'm sick of the amount of times I have repaired only to die milli secs after using a kit.

Yes, it takes a spilt second before registering your selection. Very annoying for anyone used to just quickly flicking the stick.

Yes.  Bonus.....lite tank flips over and auto reflip does not always work.  Nice turtle tank game
When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

Agree, VERY ANNOYING!

 

Today I had to try 4 times to repair my track, only to die a split second after it finally repaired.

 

It was nowhere near this bad before the last update

It’s a feature! :sceptic:

 

 

 


I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

It takes more than a split second now. You can't even just send a message by flicking over it now, you have to hold it there for what feels like half a second. Totally annoying and other feature ruined by WGC this year.

Remember, it's just a game!

I’ve got one clanmate who switched to using large repair kits to get around this problem.

 

KISS - Keep it simple (and) stupid. That’s two years of muscle memory that you are fighting against. Even more for the Xbox guys.

Agree, stupid me tried to use the Command Wheel congratulate a teammate for saving me with a good shot.

 

T took 3 tries and I was killed whilst concentrating on getting the stupid thing to work!

 

Was anything written in the Update Changes about this backward step???

Good point. I've noticed that the comms wheel is now broken, too. 

 

WGCB standard operating procedure. Fix one thing, break 3 that weren't previously broken.

all it needed was to have the auto-fix on tracks removed.

 

now it doesnt want to work at all, it requires a huge delay to select.

 

= super annoying.

I used to do repairs on the move,,,now it seems like you have to stop everything to use the repair wheel and not mess it up

it seems to crap out on me at the most inopportune time. two options for repair.... pick one and it doesnt work. try to repair a module twice leads to dying most of the time.

If you let go of the left stick it will repair right away if you have only 1 damaged module.

If you move the left stick with 1 damaged modual you have to move the dial to that module.
