Hi,

 

Last week i was playing a few games. In those games i was shot by tanks i couldn't see, not in the field or on the minimap. There was only one tank. This one was visible. but this tank wasn't the one who shot me.

The only thing i was seeing was the direction were the shot was fired from.


 

How's this possible?

In short, the one tank visible was spotting you for the rest of his team. So, other tanks that were hidden behind bushes could shoot you without getting detected.

 

Learning the camo system of WoT is essential for performing better in the game.

I have a few battles behind my belt but I do still hate this when it happens... As we know the best ones you cant spot often have great pen and quick reloads so when you come up against a player that knows how to play this invisible tank its a pain in the area and to me almost as bad as arty in terms of mechanics.

I saw an invisible tank the other day, but then it dissapeared.

 

Watch the WG videos on camo and spotting mechanics,  they are well worth it and will answer your query.

I play with my eyes closed, cant be spotted if I cant spot them.

You mean one outside of your render range or inside?

 

We had cases where tanks inside render range just blipped then disappeared again immediately even though they should have been detected for at least another 5 seconds.

Radio range of the spotter also has an influence over if you are also spotted by tanks outside of their normal view range.

As I was going down the stair

I saw a man who wasn't there

He wasn't there again today

Oh how I wish he'd go away

Over 4k battles and just now this happens. Surely a bug.

It's made that way to resemble your crews ability to distinguish nature from tanks..

There is a very interesting article with RL pictures here: http://www.dailymail...landscapes.html

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

When I came home last night at three
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door... (slam!)

Last night I saw upon the stair
A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away...
