So I played a game with my M12 on Stalingrad, it all played well until the end when a enemy player drove up to me and went invisible?
Did the game bug or is he using a cheat?

Was he inside your viewrange or not?

 

Seeing as you're a relatively new player, I'm going to just leave this here and suggest you try to find a reasonable solution in the game mechanics before even mentioning hacks in the future.

Also rather replay than video so we can look around for ourselves.

This is an easy flowchart to determine if it is hacks (not really a flowchart but eh).

 

Is whatever that particular player did in the tank something everyone is doing with that tank?

 

Yes: The servers have been hacked

No: The servers have not been hacked and this is just due to poor understanding of game mechanics/lag.

Here is it, it's at the end when the T25/2 appears and then goes away...

Were you in arty view when it happens?  If so it's just a feature of the game which you can only see in replays.  If you had switched to arcade view in game it would have displayed.

I was not in art view when I started to drive towards him and round the corner.

You actually even ram him :)

 

The other tanks on the minimap jumps around, your reticle is jazzing out and your pingmeter is blinking red.

 

Classic case of packetloss/desync due to unstable connection

It's rather rare and seems to be mostly client side. Annoying still.

Take note, that no hack can alter spotting or make anyone invisible with a mod on their client. That info is done on the server, and the server decides when someone is spotted or not in a one way communication. Thus no one can alter it.

 

As pointed out above, you had a lag spike or packet loss. Thus some info you get from the server might be delayed or not arrive at all. Inc info about spotted enemy locations. Server said he was there, your client simply did not get the memo in time.

A few patches back glitches like that were more frequent. I had an instance where I was circled by two tanks that turned invisible when they approached. It used to happen disturbingly often that tanks just popped out of existance for a second about a year ago. When sending a lot of info from a to b and back sometimes things get lost on the way, seems like that's what happened to you.

Without watching the replay; Haxxor obviously.

But that T25/2 was spotted while you were still in Artillery View, and disappeared right after you switched to View. I'm guessing right there something went awry (connectivity issues most likely) as obviously the T25/2 should have reappeared when you moved forward. 

 

Personally I only ever had one case where an opponent disappeared in plain sight, close range, and never reappeared until after the team mate right next to me destroyed it; that opponent was basically right in front of me where I had to cross hair pointed (don't recall exact distance but less than 100 meters, and clearly it was spotted as team mate was firing at it. Map was old Sand River, lower right corner near the dunes/rocks). But in my case, that opponent was visible the whole time in the replay... 

 

Edit: Just one word of advise; Ditch the whole hack approach.

It's a connection issue,  had it happen to me right after the last patch, my router was acting up ( had to replace it) and I actually rammed an invisible enemy tank in my cap that was shooting me. Straight after the battle I lost connection.

Connection issues either on your part, the other players or both can have peculiar results.
