When will you fix the spotting system? I've played three games in a row today and I've been killed by the enemy even though my sixth sense hasn't gone off! Last game I got shot three times by same tank without being spotted!!

Happened twice to me today - thought I was just being paranoid.

When will you learn how the basic gamemechanics work?

 

1. 6th sense has a delay of three seconds.

2. Not being spotted doesn't mean that you can't get blindshot.

3. Replays?

Sixth sense has a delay.

Sometimes you get shot without being spotted because you're a pleb in an obvious bush.

How many times have you blind fired an obvious bush?  Credit the opposition with the same level of intelligence as yourself.  Win.

Ive also noticed sixth sense not working sometimes while I clearly was spotted. Otherwise I would not get shot by 5 people at once I guess.
Also when I got shot , drive away , get shot again and get into cover I am certainly spotted but no sixth sense going on.

Turn on replays, guys. That fixes most of those problems.

To OPs defense it happened to me too a few times. It either didn't go off or with a huge delay. I can only explain it with the hamster having a heart attack in his wheel = servers fecked up as usual lately.

Obviously, when you and only you suffer this problem which may or may not be you simply (still) not understanding the spotting system, that spotting system is broken and needs fixing.

 

Oh and now's the time to come up with the excuses as to why you do not have the replays to share.

He is not the only one , you didnt read the topic I guess.
Sometimes it has a huge delay or something , dont know why that happens.
But Ive got my tin foil hat ready on my desk if somebody wants to wear it also.

I have. There really isn't that much written and posted in this topic (yet) you know? OP hasn't provided sufficient details, and neither has Erwin (who is full of nonsense most of the time anyway), to determine what they're experiencing is one and the same issue. Same goes for you and Enforcer1975, and the one thing you all have in common is not providing any replays. Which is a common enough occurrence unfortunately. And most of the time, when replays are provided it reveals that which was described by the thread starter is not at all in line with what is visible in the replay (quite often, thread starter didn't even watch the replay). As I've already shown skepticism in my previous post, your tin foil comment makes no sense at all.

 

Most likely, these are connectivity related issues and not at all an issue with the spotting system itself. Alternatively, players may have overlooked the fact their Commander is knocked out. As 6th Sense does not work with an injured Commander...

Maybe OP was not un-spotted at all?

Yep i think its most likely a connectivity issue.

since the last patch i also have been noticing some spoting glitches...

 

ii have a very good example... 

 

i was playing tier x game on lakeville, i rushed valley, didnt encounter any oposition, so i got into their base quickly, and then when i was flanking the right side to shot guys comming from the middlke road to defend their cap, i got shot twice by jagpanzer E100, at less than 50 meters (!) INCREDIBLE... and he was using a bush almost inside the cap, in the corner of the cpa about 50 meters from me... and i didnt spot him... not even after shoting... i only noticed where he was when the light tank who was caping pushed went really close to him...

 

How is this even possible? a jagpanzer E100?? i would understand if it was a swedish Td or some very high camorating tank....

 

but he fire his gun twice, and i didnt spot him... how come?  have anyone else experienced something similar? can this be some sort of new cheat? 

 

i should have saved the replay...

I was playing my tier 9 swede td on prok the other day. Starting raging at enemy tier 10's, same line. Calling them cheaters cause they were blindfiring me. Didn't realise there was a spotted Type 4 heavy parked directly behind me.

Utter nonsense of course. Perfect example of something which will turn out to be completely different when the replay is shown. But surprise, surprise, the replay is not available. All vehicles are automatically proximity spotted at 50 meters, and furthermore neither base on Lakeville has bushes for a JagdPanzer to hide in/behind (in the cap). Either you were experiencing extreme connectivity issues, or what you've described simply did not happen at all. 

 

What makes it even more hilarious is that you then proceed to introduce tin foil item number 3, which is suggesting cheats and/or hacks. Please, just stop posting this garbage already. Provide a replay, and ask for an explanation. Nothing more.

Meh happened once or twice in the entire time i've played this game.

 

Far as I can see there are two explanations:

 

  1.  You are that busy with panic when you get shot you miss the sixth sense.
  2. Lag/ Packet loss.

 

Number 1 Is the most likely.
