Hi all


 

For a while now I've noticed random occurrences of 6th sense not going off - not all the time & all anecdotal ofc, but I've noticed a few other forumites mention it recently as well.

Has anyone else experienced this, or...................

I remember thinking on a few occasions, 'did 6th sense go off there'. Ofc it takes a couple of seconds to sound after being spotted so if your spotted, hit and killed in under that time maybe it doesnt go off at all.

You of all people should be able to furnish a replay for the careful consideration of and analysis by others, which many people (except, it seems, "spamhampster" and "log_range_sniper" )   like to see on these forums...

 

Edit: Smiley brackety stuff.

one of my clanmates kept telling me arty was targeting us just before the 'boom' while tooning today, after it became apparent he was dead right for the umpteenth time, I asked htf he knew... my 6th sense goes off when enemy arty marks our spot... asked how he knew that was even a thing, when he plays arty as soon as he marks a target tank it moves...

 

maybe it's a thing, mine went off a few times before the boom, when it was clear nothing could have spotted us.

This week I also had 2/142 matches I which I got shot whithout SS being triggered.

I was LTing only.

This is very unusual, because it never happens at all.

didnt rly notice any problem with ss, it can be a blind shot, or you get respotted by someone else before it fade off, or you die before the activation time.

i watched it, my guess is that the indien pz spotted you and the scorpion was pre aiming on your direction as you got spotted when you killed the12t, and you died before the activation.

AFAIK there have always been genuine issues with 6th sense.

Certainly, many times I have been shot (and not in an obvious pre-aimed spot) and the icon just does not light up before and after.

 

It's probably lag induced de-sync with the server or something technical I don't understand.

That said, I suspect some are that once it's initially gone off we are actually being continuously spotted for an extended period - meaning it won't go off again - resulting in it appearing that it's not working.

Yes not that often but it happens sometimes , also getting hit without any sound and notification is a thing that happens now and then.

That is known as Murphy's Law.

 

6th sense does not go off when arty targets you, besides which, if you are relying on the lightbulb before you take cover you are doing it wrong.

Yeah, who would want evidence when we could just say stuff and expect everyone to believe it?  Also, why would anyone NOT want to show evidence for something they have a theory or experience about?  That seems insane: "I could prove it but I don't want to!  You'll just have to take my word for it and if you don't then you are *insert random lame insult here*.".

 

OP, post up a few replays where this has happened and we can see if it's explainable or not.

That's certainly my goal wheb LT-ing.

 

Enemy pokes. I spot him.

He falls back, I keep him spotted.

He pokes, falls back, 6th sense doesn't go off.

He pokes right out to fire a shot, gets blatted by the multiple guns waiting for him to pull out of cover.

Have noticed odd occasions where it does not "trigger," even after getting hit several times over 10/15 secs period (or after getting instantly vaporised by several vehicles). It does appear to be random even allowing for blind shots and the Arty trigger. 

 

Is the "delay" still 3/4 secs from visual Contact?

Does it still trigger even when you get killed in the 3/4 sec window?
