New update and still enemy tanks keep vanishing right in front of you.

 

Amazing camouflage i must say. 

 

So many people reporting this and WG seems more preoccupied with other stuff. 

 

Please fix this. Its annoying when this makes you dead and there is nothing we can do.

 

I have seen this happening at least 5 times since the update.

​yes it has been happening more and more times. i had a battle where i was in the enemy base. all the sudden an artillery apeared right next to me. when i turned that way the art vanishes and i was like '' what the hell??'' . the art then shoots me dead and only after iam dead it shows up again right where i was... this is so frustrating

That's the special fifth camouflage option you get when you get the 4-year veteran award.

 

:P

Hello, the tank wasn't invisible to the player. It's a known issue while spectating a player when their radio is taken out and only affects the spectator. :honoring:

It is a spectator only bug. Understand what was said however there is no video to show that happened. :honoring:

To clear things up a bit more anjo.....is this you driving your own tank and is a recording or is this you spectating somebody else in their tank after you were killed in battle?

true, but you do have multiple people mentioning it. not trying to discredit what they said but it was still said nonetheless

So I love these threads....

It is in spectator mode....Press A to return to garage is displayed...(not in English but there at lower center of screen)

Green Tiger II is facing off to the east at Red enemy,,,,probably a Defender.

Green Tiger II starts to re position to fire at the Red TD directly ahead....

The Red ISU-152 lands first shot which destroys Radio....shown in red text...and then disappears.

Barrel of Green Tiger II stays on target while ISU-152 tank image is gone....If it was auto locked and disappeared it would swing back to center and not stay pointed at TD..

The Tiger II lands the shot on the supposedly invisible tank as you can see by the white bar on reds health bar immediately after it reappears which shows it just lost health...

And then ultimately the Green Tiger II is destroyed by the Defender he was looking at originally....not the ISU which was backing away after being shot by the Tiger II

But the supposedly vanishing tank had nothing to do with the Tiger II being killed anyways..

Does make sense it is a spectator mode issue when a radio is destroyed from the tank you are viewing in....

its amazing people now saying its only in spect view. that is a lie. did you read that i said it already happen to me personally 5 times since the update? and i said that because it was something already happenig before the update. but dont worry i will make a compilation of game clips and without spect view. then i will wait to see what some people have to say. 

 

funny thing is that the forum it full of this reports but whatever

Happened to me last night on some snow map, poking around a rock lining up a shot across an open field at an opposing tank and then BAM! Tier X Heavy lights up bright red in the middle of my view literally right in front of me and I'm one-shotted back to the garage. My Arty Platoon mate was watching from above and said it was like the other tank just teleported in front of me.

Hello, the MT-25 wasn't an invisible tank. He just drive around the other side of the mound and came up behind you. You can see him pop up on your mini-map @51 seconds when you spotted him as he came around the hill. :honoring:

Hi Max why is there a denial of the problem its clearly evident in the video... I've watched this video 5 times now and yes the tank appears at 51 seconds but by then its to late to even do anything about it can you not see that driving past a tank in the open literally a couple of feet away and said tank stays undetected is an issue?

Not "in the open literally a couple feet away..."  The dude got out played, the light baited him to push into his teamate and flanked him using the cover of that big mound of dirt on his left side.  The problem is players denial of understanding spotting mechanics.  Show me some real evidence and I may agree with you but I doubt there actually is any because I have not seen it on the battlefield.

I do understand how spotting works if you are trying to imply i don't .Yeah you are correct although you sound like your being insulting... sorry mr i have played more battles than you so i must preach. I don't need to show you any evidence I never have had a problem with the spotting i was just making an observation from the video..

You're saying there is denial about a problem that is clearly visible in a video that was quite clear there was no problem.  Other than that I'm not sure what you are getting at.

Had the same thing happen last night with a spotted Wtauf PV IV, He was there one second and vanished off the radar, then my platoon head in his direction, I thought he was hiding behind a rock and like magic he appears about 50m's in front of me with out any cover in a open space, lucky for me he wasn't paying attention to me and I got the kill. It is a weird change in the game, and I have also found the Tiger 1's are less accurate and powerful shots than before the update?
