Ok this is happening more and more. Didn't get me killed this time but I sure hope they fix this. Randomly you view goes to some sort of super zoom (with out selecting zoom) which seems more powerful than sniper view. If you're close to another tank you can see inside that tank.

Yeah no, this just looks like you forgot to zoom back out when you were in sniper view and decided to inspect the grass.

Nope, zoom was not selected at all. Its happened to several other folks on the forums as well. Its a bug.

I read a thread few days back about being able to see tanks through buildings and such, probably the same issue. WG responded they are "looking into it..."   get it?  "looking into it.."     :teethhappy:

You'll be shocked to learn that the OP made that too.

Giaka, I have found myself sometimes accidentally bumping the SIDE of my LT for zoom while I am driving and it zooms in like that.  It really throws you off when you are not expecting it.

The post was in GD with the complaints. May have been moved.

dumb question as now i've seen it on a good number of video's;

 

are you truly colorblind or prefer the reds to be 'purple' and don't care about how the rest of the game looks?  i did try it as i know it was a 'trick' on other multiplayer games but everything goes purple and the game itself looks washed and ugly.

I switched to that mode last night as the red color on my LED tv was giving me trouble as in I could read it.  I probably need to adjust the tv more than anything else. The purple is much easier to read though (identifying bad guys).

gotcha, appreciate that and i agree also, i've fidgeted with my TV quite a bit since i've been tanking.

 

i've even gone to Walmart and bought a cheapy bean bag chair because i couldn't read all the tank type and names from the couch, and have considered an official gamechair (how embarrassing is that?)  i cant count the times i've loaded up a tier 7 and my platoon-mate says "dude, i've got a tier 8 up"
