The camouflage of some players  100% in the open reaches. Play with arty 
and detect a tank
away ... the tank disappeared and a few seconds later it is next to me 
to destroy ...
 is it possible?
In a real situation this does not happen, there are no ghost tanks, only
 here in this game.
 Is this siyuation legal?
Or do they use forbidden camouflage mods? I think those responsible for 
the game should
 review this situation.:bush:

The most common reason for this is simply that your client has communications issues with the server. Camouflage and when someone is spotted is decided by the server. Once someone is marked as spotted. Server will let your client know, and he shows it to you. But if your client don't get the memo, he won't show the tank either until he realizes he is behind and finally gets a delayed notification about the spot. Even if he is 50 meters away from you. Thus why you "only" see it here. As this game is server based on it's calculations to reduce and remove the nasty client side cheats. So when the game is run by the server. You get stuff like this, or ghost shells. Tho rare.

 

Could be your local network, could be your ISP, could be the server. Who knows.

 

That or your commander was dead and your view port broken. If you fail to notice that, your tank is blind as a bat and won't notice anything in the open 100m in front of you until the hatch is fixed at least. Could be as simple as that. As you have not showed a replay.

If it was that easy, everyone would do it. And not be something you did see once in a blue moon. As there are no camouflage mods.

Before they fix this they need to stop people breaking the forums with odd fonts.

Arty sitting inside a bush whilst around 80m away, firing and remaining invisible has always been one of my favourites.

You try and double/triple opaque bush in a TD and you shoot once you get spotted, arty? [edited]who cares fire and don't get spotted half the time.

Why am i not surprised about that sub 45% rating....
You need to git gudder crews. I had so many bots i shot at ranges where the tank should have been able to spot me so i just assume they play tanks with a 50% crew and without equipment.

No need for a replay. OP is playing at or even below the level of a bot and simply doesn't understand how the very basics of the game work. Claiming hax seems to be easier than actually reading the wiki once...

It's bloody cold and I am at work far to early but this post has made me smile nearly as much as my early morning coffee, ( apologies for lack of punctuation but its proper big coat weather in Yorkshire)

Most likely case of "not understanding game mechanics", replay or g**o, we are all out of tinfoil so no free passes on conspiracy theories.:trollface:

It's quite balmy in the North east, snow's melting and zero windchill. Lot of fuss about nothing as usual, too scared to be caught out like in '87 or whenever the storm was..meh.
