Is there a direct link between players who do not use 6th Sense and how many times they are one shot killed by a long range TD or HT/MT/LT sniper and an SPG?

 

I have watched many videos either ingame post game match capture or on youtube and I see many players get spotted, you hear the warnings as they would hear ingame, yet they sit still, no effort to back off or duck behind cover.  BOOM one shot or a good chunk of HP gone.  Either no 6th sense or  just ignored the warning.

Also after they are hit by SPG or hit by long range fire.  Tracked / immobilized or not, many players just sit there so the shooter can send more rounds down to the stationary target.

With this said, do these players, not have 6th sense skill on their crew?  they have too much faith they can bounce all shots with their armour(even in open ground) or in their hull down position?   Is this just inexperience on how to react to enemy fire and defend themselves.  Could not having 6th Sense be a cause of most of the blind one shot kills from spg or a sniper?

 

I am wondering how many players use it and make it a priority in their crew progression. I have over a good number of crews, and I make it the first skill.   I don't like running around and having all the reds looking at me without knowing.  How far down the crew leveling progress do you put 6th sense?

All of my crews learn 6th sense first, except dedicated arty crews (if I ever decided to start a dedicated arty crew). It's the single most useful skill in any outfield tank. 
Nowhere to run. Know where to hide.

You’d be surprised to learn how many people view six sense as a useless skill because they “ play like they’re always spotted”. Six sense was always the first thing I trained because information is key. I only say was because I don’t really train crews all that much anymore

6th sense is always my first crew skill on every tank. Any information is good information.

I train repairs first on a new crew then swap it out for 6th sense when fully trained, then train repairs again and swap it for bros in arms, train repairs again then swap it for track mechanic, finally train repairs and keep it. After that I start tailoring the skills and perks for the specific class of vehicle but always 6th sense first.

from the first couple of responses, I am not crazy by putting 6th Sense as my first skill..

It's my 1st crew skill on all of my crews and your sentences above is wrong. 6th sense let you know that "the reds" know where you are but they have no free shot to hit you. (arty excluded) So, you were detected but you drove behind cover that they can't see YOUR TANK directly. They just know your known location spotted by an (red) team member and their radio operator told another (red) radio operator where you were but none see you directly anymore.

 

Detected / Targeted is when a red player spotted you and have a free shot area without things in the way to hit you AND the red player aims on you currently.

I play lights and fast movers and being detected (even not targeted) usually a bad thing.  I usually change direction after being 6th sensed, and crest the hill and avoid peaking out a corner in the same path as I was going when I was 6th sensed.  Many times you can see the red's turret and know you  can get by or duck into cover safely.  I use the 6th sense in conjunction with the auto proximity warning to be able to get by  red when active scouting in and out defilade hills and valleys.   a second or two 6th sense warning efore the detected warning is the difference to many light tanks when spotting.

BIA always first, then either camo or Sixth Sense (SS). SS is good for telling if someone is around the corner undetected or under concealment.

Pull up behind hard cover and poke out so the front of your tank becomes exposed, then quickly pull back. If SS didn't go off within 3 seconds, your probably ok to advance to the next hard cover.

That's how I use it.

We don’t have a 3 second delay like pc. SS is instant

I always thought "Detected!" was instant and SS took a few seconds.

First crew perk. Train camo or some other skill, then swap for SS. Playing without SS is a significant handicap for me.

Sixth sense is THE skill to have 1st. spotting and being spotted are keys to the game,and knowing when you are in the crosshairs is crucial. Anyone not using it just doesn’t know the game.

That’s what I’m doing too. I play without SS only until I train the first skill. Then SS becomes the first or I just choose it at the beginning if don’t wanna spend 10 gold on some low tier vehicles.


 

Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

spoken like a true elitist.

yes one of the important skills but not the most important.

always asume your spotted and try to stay arty safe untill it;s trained but to say someone just doesn't know the game is wrong it's not essential but it does like most other crewskills help

you would be a worse player just relying on that to know if your spotted it's not instant.....

For me 6th sense is first skill all tanks and second skill after bia in artillery.  I think that majority of players are at level of 48% win rate and I bet they do not know all the tricks of the game including how to efficiently use crew skill.  I see this in artillery game, detected TD player or arty player sit still in open, the targeted warning is not lid up and he keeps shooting.  It just tells me that he does not have 6th sense or they do not know how to use.  They get hit by artillery and sent me an angry message about stupid coward sky cancer. It's not my fault that some players don't know how to play the game.  Same happens with experienced players, I see how greed gets over them after they took fist shot that got them detect, they take second shot from the same spot and get hit artillery.  I gain I get angry message,but it's not my fault if experienced player gets killed by his own greed.  Get 6th sense, learn to use it and don't let stupidity and greedy kill you.

Neither have a delay anymore. 

 

The old 'targeted' had a delay but when they replaced it with 'detected' the delay was removed.

Sixth sense has no delay. Used on conjunction with the 'targeted!' Alert of gives you all the information you need.

 

And yes. It is essential. You're just being obtuse because you don't like what someone said. Whether you like it or not, they were correct.
