This is the future of WOT warfare. Cammo-rating value 500% on russian tanks, with cloaking devices.

Nah, gost tanks are a thing from years. Some TDs have so much cammo that, with double bush, can stay unspotted an shot from 100m...

It looks like the shot came from the direction the IS3 on the minimap was last spotted. I think you should check how much of your tank was visible from that direction. He clearly hit your upper plate, which was over-angled towards that last known position.

On a serious note, I would say it may be a packet loss issue. I read in several thread that may lead to similar events.

Yep, the shot could have just been a lucky one lobbed over the top of the hill, but the ramming.....seems weird. In my opinion, it could be a client side desync? But then again, everything else seems to be in sync.

Wow, that is some legit OP camo on that IS-3.

Can I have some of that too on my IS-3 WG?

Using two paper cups with a piece of string stretched taut between them is no longer acceptable Internet access technology.

If you actually watch the video you might see there is actually a non-rendered tank next to him. I've had it once or twice myself, but that was probably because my PC overheated.

Well first I thought it was due to the double bush next to the enemy T34.. then I noticed he rammed you. Your client and the server has communication issues. I've seen it 2 times in all my games. It's rather rare luckily.

 

You should have asked if anyone else on your team did see him. If not then some info got lost between you and the server. If no one saw him. Then the server failed to let you know he was spotted. Tho when I have seen it, it's only the one tank. It's the price we pay for server side calculations.

 

Tho only one time a few years ago was it more then one tank. There is a video showing the battle from both sides. One team spotted everyone and was 10 feet from the enemy targets. The enemy team saw nothing and no one was spotted, until the enemy killed them all and went back to defend base, then suddenly they became spotted.

Yes, a team mate was on my game view and saw the ramming aswell.

It wasn't only me :)

I somehow doubt that it's a client-side issue.

 

Plottwist: That's how all those botlike players are made - they just don't see the enemies! :hiding:

The first strange thing is the mm.... its not a 15 vs 15... 

 

is that a random match? or its a modified client played on private server? because the video is either a strange bug or a hack, or it can be made by a changed client

purposedly to make the video...
