Transmission Dropped Into Neutral?

So today I was at the intersection on campus and it was my turn to go. When I started to accelerate and turn left the car felt like it just dropped into neutral. Kinda embarrassing, because everyone was waiting for me to go a little faster than snail speed at start off. It just wouldn't go. Gave it more punch and it buckled and launch off like a rocket! Wonder if it was because I didn't do a full stop and did more of a roll and when I accelerated the transmission just got confused. It's the automatic dct by the way. Never happened before though, even with the roll stops. Also while I'm at it, I never did notice any difference in the transmission after the update earlier this year.
