Has anyone else been having sensitivity issues with the new update? Whenever I enter a game now, it says it's calibrating for several seconds, which would be really cool if it worked right. But now, my sensitivity is so low that the noob planes can almost out turn me and I'm easy pickings for anyone past the first couple of levels. And I'm at level 17. It wouldn't be so bad if it actually got rid of the inconsistencies between platforms, but instead it completely removes my ability to manually adjust sensitivity. I don't want be childish, but the game is pretty much worthless till this is fixed. Am I crazy, or are others having this issue too?

I have the same problem on android note 3. The screen where you would adjust sensitivity is gone and it gives you the lowest setting. Which makes this game pointless and lame. Could we please have a fix Zup?

You know there's a problem when a level 1 Fokker gives your fully upgraded Sopwith Camel a run for it's money. Please fix this. The game is pretty much worthless like this. Every plane should have a preset minimum turn radius, max climb rate, etc, that cannot be exceeded. How much a player has to move their controls to get there should be up to them. There's nothing unfair about that.

it's not on the lowest setting, it's actually up to 75% on the bar. I guess you used to play 100% up.
In any case, the update will go to all platforms, exactly to avoid that: every player had a different setting and some had a huge advantage over others. Now everyone will have exactly the same setting when the update is out in all platforms. Right now, you are experiencing how PC players have been playing for months.

I still don't see how having sensitivity adjustable is unfair, as long as everyone can do it and everyone has the same maximum maneuverability for a given plane. If it is unadjustable, I also don't see why it can't be set at the maximum, where it is the most enjoyable to play. I'm sure there are reasons it is this way, but it seems like having equal adjustability for everyone would be the best of both worlds.

Because every device is different and some are extra sensitive so they have extra turn fighting advantage. By enforcing the system myself I can detect those devices and program them so that everyone is on a similar playing level.

No argument there. I was just saying that I wished that the maximum maneuverability was higher like it used to be for me, and that everyone had that same level of advantage.

Zup, I have noticed that Moustache Man has a significant advantage in turning, no matter which plane is used. Is this a sensitivity issue?

I HATE this drop in sensitivity! It really takes away from the game as regards evasive maneuvering. I went out and spent the money to get a Samsung Galaxy tablet recently in order to play better. I would prefer to set my own sensitivity, thank you.

I'm running a Moto G phone the original Moto G how come everyone is still out turning me if we are on a Level Playing Field how can they out early I should be able to turn with them just as easy as before I have the top planes of both types low-level planes are killing me I can't turn with them and as far as PCS go they can see you from halfway across the map and destroy you I can't even see what I'm shooting that when I start shooting so I think it was pretty well before no I can't even play it is a waste of time I'm getting killed by everybody I haven't even hit anybody yet if we are on a Level Playing Field how come I can't turn with them

Over time people learn tricks that help them turn quicker. There's a lot more to turnfighting than just tilt and shoot. Work with the throttle and use momentum, you'll figure out tricks of your own.

in the history off acm(air combat manoeuvres) it been desirable to produce a aircraft that can out turn it opposition ...or in sum cases out dive ..as spitfires ...hurricane had to roll inverted an dive..as me 109 was fuel injected an cud do a straight dive :oops:


the planes that cud out turn others was considered a dogfight winner...

big example f-16 fighting falcon

I think being sensitive is ok. Don't be worried if you are sensitive, I used to be a sensitive person. Embrace your sensitivity.

iPhone 6:

I had 2 days where My controls were fixed in a bad position (a rolling corkscrew) I could almost fly straight if I held it just right. :S

Then on the third day the timer (at the beginning of the game) showed up with "hold steady while calibrating" and I had several good games. Sensitivity was definitely diminished but everything worked properly. Several other players seemed to be able to turn better than they had before... they were more of a challenge anyway. I went up against a couple who I believe are on PC who were now turning faster than I was, not too much, just a bit.

Then later I tried to play and found the controls had slipped where I had to hold my phone at a much steeper angle than what I find comfortable, otherwise things were still working. Then I upgraded my operating system to OS10. Now I get the "hold stead while calibrating" timer each game and things seem to work fine.(mostly)

I don't mind having the sensitivity set automatically but I'd like it if it was set higher for all. If it's at 70% now, I'd like if it could be set for 85% instead.

I had no choice but to go to elite as I tried to log on about a week ago to the old dog fight and it immediately directed me to elite. Just some subtle changes but costing me valuable time getting on target. A slight bump in my controls and I'm an inch off target. Have to start well above and weave left and right to drop my aim. Not near as dead on as I was.
