Since the upgrade the vehicle controls are out of whack. Sometimes you try to turn and nothing happens, try to hit the brakes and you keep going. Really frustrating when you run right out in front of someone and die.

I'm getting this quite often ever since the update.

If you pay attention to your ping, it freezes; usually it's jumping in a small range, but when this happens it stays on one value. After a bit it will 'unlock' and you have a small ping jump when you get control back.

Usually this only happened to me when I was about to crash or have a very bad lagging incident, but those were few and far between. Now, it's almost every game, and it's been getting worse. Just got out of a game where it occurred 6 times.

This is getting quite annoying. Not sure if it's just the increased server load, or something snapped in the new update.

I'm playing full screen, and I often run the internet in the background (yay, music!), but this occurs even when WoT is the only program running. I'm in the Northeast US if it matters, and this was not an issue before the update

Edit: Seems to be more during later hours for some reason.

I can confirm this also. Happened to me a couple of times, I usually exit the game and restarts, it helps. But annoying when you're grinding.

It's still happening with a vengeance. I'm not totally sure if it's lag or not. The game still updates what everyone else is doing including firing and hits (as well as my tank's turret rotation), but I cannot fire or have control over the movement of my tank during these periods of time.

It usually lasts a few seconds, but can take more than 10 sometimes. It just happens multiple times each match.

Really quite annoying and game-breaking. I suppose being forcefully losing control input on your car for a few seconds every so often would be a bad thing, eh?

I submitted a ticket and have gotten a pretty speedy response. It looks like some packet loss issues somewhere along the way. For me, it's through Carohosting.com. I was suggested to contact my ISP to see it they can work out the issue either through there or my ethernet hardware.

So, that may be what's causing this. It's worth a try.

Mine seems to have sorted itself out. It hasn't happened to me in a couple of days.

I saw this starting in 0.6.4, and it's worse in 0.6.5.  Had two or three issues of it today.

HI think I have similar issues. I ve beibg playing 2 weeks now from Athens Greece, never had a problem before today! the ping is about the same but i have movement control issues such as turning delay.... pretty annoying when this game is all about movement and sychronization.. tried changing grafics , no effect. The wierd thing is that everything seems fine apart from the movement control, so i dont think its about lag.
   And the problem occured after an update of 12 Mb which autoinstalled today!
