You bring up a good point. I believe that some of this dissatisfaction with the DCT has to do with the use of the right foot.
For example, if you were going making a left hand turn in an intersection (from a stop), the throttle should be applied smoothly and gradually through the turn. If one were to momentarily lift off the throttle half way through the turn, the DCT may not respond well.
