So this has happened to me three times since upgrading to iOS 8 yesterday on my ipad mini (original).  My drive stick gets stuck in track rotate.  Every time it was clockwise (right) rotation.  First time, I was STEAMING full speed ahead after someone at the end of a game, and all of a sudden, my tank just starts rotating.  I let off the touch pad completely, and it kept turning.  Slammed a few other directions, and eventually it un-stuck.  Happened again while trying to circle around someone to the left.  Tank just got stuck in right track rotate, even when I removed my finger.  Last time was similar to the first, steaming full speed ahead, but this time I began a slight right turn and again it got stuck.  Again, when I removed my finger it stayed stuck.

 

I thought maybe it was my bad driving the first time, but that it continues when I remove my finger and doesn't change until I smash multiple other directions is the troubling part.  Hard to say if it was stuck for the same amount of time or not.  It wasn't long, but in a pretty fast game like this it felt like eternity.  I died as a result 2 of 3 times :(.  Also find it odd that it's never happened to me in thousands of battles until iOS 8.  This is on an original iPad Mini

Lag, check your ping (bottom left corner). If this is high, you have lag.

Didn't catch ping the first time.  The second two, it was chillin at in the 60s which is typical for me.  Should have mentioned that above, my apologies.

My tank gets stuck, won't move forward or reverse, left or right.  After 30 or 40 seconds it jumps forward in time and tries to execute my inputs at double speed, or just shows where I died which is what happens most of the time.

Has this been happening RIGHT AFTER you guys updated to iOS 8? We are aware that Apple's new update has some issues, but there should be a fix for that soon. I would send in a ticket to Support and they can look into it further.
