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?

seen a few tanks disappear while in the open of prokhorovka and malinokvka, in theory those tanks would not have disappeared due to new true vision , but IMO i think the old spotting mechanics and true vision maybe still both active at the same time causing some tanks in the open to disappear.  

I do not have any captures due to trying to stay alive in my light to stop and press capture on XB1.  and when i do capture, i am not wasting hours trying to look for that exact spot on the capture to see when that tank or tanks disappeared

I played a few games yesterday for the first time in a while and I wondered wth was going on.

It's a step in the right direction it seems but surely there's limitations depending on enemy camo rating and your view range?

Oh and hi everyone.


Here's some meaningless stats for you to shame me with... Have at it.

Something I realized, tanks with MOE's that can be bright like British MOE's stand out and make it easier to see. Should add an option if this is going to be permanent for the enemy team not to see marks or make them dimmer.

Tanks seem to disappear for me right at the time of targeting them and disappearance and then reappearance while sitting in the open is silly, especially with this new tv.

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!?

You may have never spoken more true words in your entire forum history !

Not really back, just checking in and after a dozen or so matches Im thinking this true sight thing needs tweaking.

Saw a maus destroyed at the start of a match after travelling less than 50m, slow tanks were bad to begin with but this makes it a whole lot worse.

Playing artillery was weird I got cross mapped by something that probably could only see the top 5% of my tank.

Oh and showing kill cam on unspotted tanks... hmm not sure that should be a thing either.

Trial and error I suppose.

lol did you catch the arty bug last time they did the TV test? At first it could immediately see the entire enemy team before they left spawn :teethhappy:

  • i have to say is camo nets ,camo paint,and camo skills are finally working instead of being cosmetic features.Finally WOT's got camo right and spotters r true spotters and Td's are now true snipers and for the complainers now you cant just drive through an area u have to think fewer 3 min matches. Remember Michael Whittman got ambushed because Sherman s used camo and cover and blew him away when he tried crossing open field.

Do you have a clip? 

 

Its happening when the tanks go from being detected and you can auto lock them, to unspotted. They blink out of existence.

Are you happen to be playing Artillery? If so, that should happen as they use the normal spotting system.

Do you have an example? I have a feel that the tank just becomes concealed, not un-rendered.

I have no clips as I have been playing very little during the “event”, but no... They are not concealed, they turn invisible in the open and then blink into existence again a few seconds later at the exact same spot.

Unrelated .....has it been raised that when you die , say in their spawn , you can still see all the enemy tanks and report back to your team exactly where they are and what they are doing ?

"IF" TV is to go live , i would think TV should be turned off when in death cam.
