i keep getting blown up by tanks that are completely invisible is it even possible to buy upgrades that make your tank completely invisible surly this is not fair!

Yes, there is an upgrade called "learn game mechanics" which you can purchase through brain power.

True, but with the scant information given by the OP, I'm going with the problem being between chair and keyboard until proven otherwise.

Serious and not sarcastic recommendation: start learning about the game mechanics, there is a lot more going on than you might think in this game, it will improve your understanding and your capabilities in the game if you are willing to learn.

It is fair.

And when you learn how to play, it won't happen to you anymore.

If you took any brain power away, I'd be afraid of the OP being described as being in a vegetative state and taken away to some form of care home!

 

6.5k games with little to no improvement on their already miserable 200 WN8 tells me all I need to know about the 'invisible tanks' the OP claims are unfair...

​Indeed, OP How did you manage to play 6k+ battles without learning basic stuff like this O.o

Because the spotting mechanics is FAR from basic....hell weve even had threads where unicums cant decide whats going on so how about give him a break and point him in the right direction instead of tripping over trying to out-smartass each other?

There dose seem to be a bug with the spotting system i have had a lowe disappear right in front of me(he stopped moving bam invisible)  maybe 3 tank lengths away from me, and i have seen and heard alot of other people complaining about medium tanks driving right up to them invisible only appearing after they fire, ive seen it too, far to close for a camo value to be effective.

Given the fact that OP plays BELOW the level of a bot, we can be relatively sure that this his problems aren't caused by the mentioned bug, but by his complete lack of... everything.

How long ago? It wasnt very long ago that tanks were not pre-loaded. 

The game could then very well take longer to load the tank from a slow, fragmented disk than it took for said tank to kill you.

I suppose you have a replay of this happening? Because without a replay we can't say anything.

You're joking right? I learnt it the day I got the game, it was one of the most important things to read up on.

 

I refuse to believe the OP has been driving around for 6000+ games wondering what those circles on his map are, why the bushes go transparent, what camo rating means, etc.
