So I was playing my T-43 on Westfield when I started getting shot at long before my sixth sense was ever triggered. In fact I was being shot at pretty much the entire game without having been spotted.
The way I see it there's only two possible explanations:
1) there's a bug in the game that prevents the sixth sense from triggering during the first half of this game.
2) someone on the enemy team is cheating their butt off!

Notice how shots starts landing on the ground around me from the moment I get up the hill, and continue to hit around me no matter how far along the houses I go. I even get hit once by the T-25 Pilot before I get spotted.

I noticed 6th sense showing up with high delay lately. Ping is ok as well as fps.

First of all, why on earth did you think grey tiny text was a good choice?

It's really quite obnoxious to read.

 

Secondly: Can't watch the replay atm. Did you happen to sitin some obvious spot prone to getting blindshot?

6th sense can fail to go off if you get dropped packets.  This might not show on the ping or lag indicator.

Don't you just love people using some other font?

It is possible that they were blind firing at wherever you were hiding and were getting lucky. You don't have to be spotted to be hit. Silly question but did you consider moving when you were being hit?

Not spotted till you get proxied by the TD, the T-25 pilot is just firing  blind into known bushes (where the T71 was) as well as through the town at targets behind you,

You're just in the way.

 

Click Free camera mode and basically line it up so you are looking either at the T-25 or as if you were looking from the T-25

Proper grammar, paragraphs, proper explanation... that's a very good start. But why the format/color change?

Anyway, can't watch the replay, but in most (all?) cases it's simply due to the player sitting in obvious spots that the enemy blindfires at.

I don't recognise the 'shells landing all around you' bit, the enemy was firing at the T71. I think the first hit on your tracks was possibly meant for somebody else, but the hit lit you up to the enemy so you were instantly spotted, and soon after the ISU also spotted you as it died, and then you were permanently spotted for the rest of the game. There is nothing suspicious.

Of course, only TWO possible explanations... And one of them has to be cheats. Because that's all simpletons can come up with. I suppose you mentioning two possible explanations is some kind of progress already. Must don't get past the one, cheats/hacks.

 

Without even watching the replay, either opponents were blind firing OR trying to shoot at something behind you (from their perspective). But obviously watching your own replay before coming to forums was too much to ask.
