I'm on iPad and I used to have joystick like around the middle (left side) of the screen. Here's some evidence... A picture taken the day before Humania and the new client IOS update.
I could joystick flick and all that good stuff! Yes, the tried to lower it before, but I had a trick... If I made the joystick big, I could raise its height. Now, I can't anymore! Please let me choose my joystick placement... It's been really screwing me up D:!!!!!! I literally have to put my hand around the bottom of the iPad screen.
