I find the same thing with jousting. No matter how much I practice,
I'm always facing the wrong way. I can't thrust or charge because
strafing turns me the wrong way. I just can't get the hang of it. It's
very frustrating. I can't progress past the first set of challengers.
As a result, a good way to make money, gain reputation with various
factions, pets, mounts, gear - all is denied to me because I just
can't get the hang of this particular vehicle.
Strafing is probably your problem - as a keyboard turner jousting is
dead easy to me: charge, hit left or right on the keyboard and the
mount will happily turn around in the right direction all by itself,
simple :-) Sometimes keyboard turning is better than all the fancy
strafing and mouse turning everyone says is the "only" way to play...
Not being able to strafe in vehicles gets me sometimes, but is it at
all reasonable to expect a tank to be able to move sideways? (Though
it'd make parallel parking so easy if cars could) And while they can
be trained to move sideways, it's not really something horses are
inclined to do naturally. And certainly they're not going to be doing
it very quickly.
