I continue to have ghost touches.

 

I am running the latest iPad and iOS.

 

I sometimes run music in the background (TuneIn Radio app), but this seems to happen whether I am doing that or not.  All other apps are closed.

 

Here is what happens:

 

-  in chat I start to get random letters typed in the text window as I am trying to type.  My typed letters get overridden.  Usually spaces and sometimes h's and n's.

 

- in Battle, after I have died I keep getting the "Exit Battle" pop-up, indicating a ghost touch bottom center of the screen.  This happens whether I am touching the screen or not.

 

- in the Garage I will sometimes be taken to the Ammunition screen, when I have touched nothing.  I can see the hit on the Ammo button, bottom center screen in this case.

 

It's all annoying, but what it also means is that I am probably getting random ghost touches like this while actually fighting.  They are probably taking priority over what ever I am trying to do at the time on the map, but since there is no active button there I just don't seem them.

 

I have run a lot of other touch games on this device and never had anything like this.  It is unique to WoTB.

Yes it clears when I completely close and reopen the app, but I should not have to do that.  I am more concerned about it happening invisibly while I am in Battle trying shoot or turn and instead the app has decided it is crucially important to be hitting the bottom center of my screen.  No way to tell if this is happening or not.  (I am desperate to find out why I am such a terrible player.)

If it's not happening to anyone else I would say that your iPad is just fucked up

Yeh, I think that's a possibility, though it is not happening in any other apps.  I think it might be a compatibility thing, which would be good to know as well.  Not sure with what.  Don't know that I have any strange processes running or anything.

That's really weird. If the issue persists, I would recommend sending a ticket to Support. https://na.wargaming.net/support/core/Default/Index

 

Good luck!

This may sound stupid, but try cleaning off the screen.  I've spilled something on my ipad before that left a light residue that would make the buttons get pressed without me pressing them.  Clean it well and it just might work.
