Well unlike the console version of WOT, it's not showing when not spotted. So why care? It's not like you won't know where it came from if they hit you with that massive hit direction marker, or even if they miss as you can can see them on the map. So why is this bad?

Actually it would be good to see the tracers even when unspotted.

 

Pretty sure they were there before anyway, now they just look better

Even before 1.0 every shot had tracers, but now they look better than pre 1.0

We would have less redline campers and bushcampers...

yes, but a faint tracer that could be difficult to spot is better than a bright light of a tracer round.

 

but if it's only visible when spotted, then it's ok.

You can see them, at least in arty view.

As far as i know tracers are only visible for the team.

Yeah they finally look better now...i was looking around for a mod but there was none and now there's no reason to look further. 

Would be great if you saw ALL tracers flying around. Is probably off because of hax.

I'm pretty sure I say enemy tracers too, maybe only from spotted vehicles

Correct

Team is always visible (if within render range), enemy tracer only when spotted and in render range.

It's just another way of turning the game into full arcade mode. We could end up with heavys and mediums and lights only in a flat field with no cover

They glow now, particularly in sniper mode. Glowy stuff is easier to see when its only on your screen for a split-second before it either causes a dirt eruption, or detonates your ammo rack (always).

In real life shell tracers are seen from the PoV of the shooter and maybe from some angle but definitely from the back of the shell and not from the receiving end. But it's a game and it looks cool.
