Just had a game on Cliffs. Was looking right at the red M40/43 artillery in the open and it vanished for a few seconds even though it wasn’t moving. 
 

Few seconds later looked right at an SU-130. Same thing, blinked out of existence for a moment when I aimed at it. 
 

I thought the whole point of True Vision was to stop tanks vanishing in plain view in the open?

Probably just a bug. The last test wasn't exactly "stable". I found it a tad glitchy at times personally.

Maybe visibility of a tank is also subject to RNG?

I have also seen tanks vanish into thin air before my eyes during this test. It was quite far away, around 600 meters and even if the tank became invisible. My shot did still register as a hit although it looked like the shot vanished into thin air. So the true vision is not stable at all.

Same, in ranked on Abby, T95 camping bush by base, I cleared the middle open path and smack. He lights up, then poof he’s gone. Then it appear in bushes, moving but no outline/highlight. So I can see him moving but not detected so to say. I missed the original test so I have to admit this is stupid mechanic. Also doesn’t this break auto-aim? Noticed that this just goes haywire sometimes even when things are lit up.

It happened last time a couple of times as well but I did not get a vid of it either. Its not a new situation but appears True Vision is of course not totally developed lol

Missed the last test, and after todays experience glad I did.

 

Looking at 3 enemy tanks in the open on El Haluf, and they kept disappearing and then reappearing.  Got so confused by the whole system that I have given up for the evening.

 

Really do not wish to learn the game again from scratch.

Doesn't render range still effect tank view..?


End of passion play, crumbling away I'm your source of self destruction. Veins that pump with fear,sucking darkest clear leading on your death's destruction. Taste me you will see more as you need dedicated to how im killing you.

Np's so in fact i like the fact that tanks w camo net is actually working now like a camo net and not like a cosmetic hopefully they will get camo paint to start working better but great job on finally getting camo net right.

Render range is tank view and there is no limit in this test. Provided you have LOS, you should see all tanks at all times no matter the distance.

 

I find it funny that Troll Vision, a system that is being tested for idiots who don't understand why tanks can vanish in front of their eyes, is not working and tanks are still disappearing regardless.

 

I also find it funny that the same people that don't understand how spotting mechanic works and cry tanks are vanishing, are now being shot from across the map by good players who abuse the Troll Vision mechanic to their advantage.

 

There is so much fail in this "test" WG... honestly what are you doing!?

Why bring in this? If you want more realism play warthunder . On realistic battles no red outline appears . If you see a tank , you can shoot it.

Tried the first, I had Skorpion G in a tier X match on Prok hanging WAY back in the bushes in the SE quarter. After bouncing 3 shots off an IS 7 in the middle he finally picks me out and ammo racks me in one shot. I had no where to hide and as long as they didn’t expose their lower front plate they were nearly immune to my gun. No limit to their vision, vastly superior armor, and the bushes don’t work. I’ll be missing this one.

Have a look at your tank stats, and check your camo ratings. As usual WG have not only introduced a change that no one asked for, but they downloaded it client side rather than just changing the server side settings. 

Absolute amateurs.

I will be back on on Monday but I am not playing this hot mess.

In my T28 Prot. today looking at 2 tanks then gone (mind you they can still see me and I'm behind a bush). No more than 230 m away.
