That's a weird one. Enemy tank shooting our tank from like 50m but remains completely invisible. Go to 10:35 and watch our E4 get shot at many times by an empty space.

 

Edit: false alarm, it is a bug making tanks invisible.

It's a bug with spectator mode,

the Pershing could see him, but you as spectator couldn't.

It has happened to me also, not so long ago.

But that invisible tank wasn't even showing on the map. And the way that E4 was behaving I don't think he saw it.

Actually I think you are right. Just watched the replay again and it looks like more than one tank was invisible.

At that distance, it's highly unlikely to not get spotted

even if you're 15m away from a bush,

bushes add to your camo rating, they don't negate the enemy's view range.

They don't lose their camo if you're 15m away, but your tank loses it's own camo rating every time it fires.

From the replay it seems the Pershing was shooting at him,

so I'm sure he was able to see him.

Why would you play a game 17372 times if you thought that?

I had a case where i saw the tank but not my toonmate. Could have been lag or packet loss so the spot didn't immediately show up on his client. It got spotted after he got killed by it after 3 shots. I was behind him taking the same path.

Care to elaborate with some proof to back up your nonsense?

 

edit: you being really bad isn't proof of cheating, just that you are really bad.

I've noticed some medium tanks well inside my view range and in completely open ground with no bushes or cover keep vanishing even whilst moving which is just bizarre, but Ive only noticed it with mediums so far

Not entirely, but enough to know that a tank that is less than 200 metres away with no cover shouldn't be vanishing


At the end of my view range yes, but not when its that close no matter what skills and equipment is has mounted

Or how to upload a replay to wotreplays.

 

Some people are destined to stay in the dark.

No, you are just making a fool out of yourself by talking about things you don't understand at all.

Replay or it didn't happen.

The tank was most likely >200m away and sitting behind a whole rainforest, like everytime someone claims some nonsense like that.

This.

I recall a person claiming a tank had vanished at under 150m, replay showed it was over 450m :)
