As many of you might have tried, is when you are in a bush, and you get spotted even though, you didn't fire or the enemy were not close enough to proxy spot you, then you got spotted.

 

I have a theory why that might be the case.

 

For me it typically happen when i am in a elevated position compared to the enemy, or when i drive into a bush which is on top of a raised position.

 

So the theory i have, is that there a small little sliver of "air" between the bush and the ground. Which in turn makes it so, your points on you tanks becomes visible to the enemy, which can see throug the sliver.

 

World of tanks own video explaing about the points:

Just for reference, how far from you were the tanks which spotted you?

Bushes do not grant you invisibility - they are an addition to your concealment. You can sit in a bush, not moving or firing and you'll still be spotted when someone comes close enough. "Close enough" varies depending on tank, crew skills, equipment, etc. but I'd bet it's more likely that you're over-estimating your cover rather than some fault in the game.

 

Have a play with the camo calculator and you'll see what I mean.

Yeah, what has been said already. Have good enough VR and you can spot people in bushes more easily.

Did I not read somewhere, that different bushes have different concealment ratings?

They had. At update 1.0 WG became more lazy than usual and just set the camo to 100% for all bushes.

Yeah, no, no thats not what happened at all.

 

Regarding the topic, this is just a classic example of someone who thinks they understand the mechanics but they actually don't.

 

Normally this player can be found screaming "HE CANT SPOT ME THROUGH TWO BUSHES!!! HACKER!!"

The were at around 100m, so what Strappster was saying, i didn't know that bushes provided diffrent amount of camo, and not 100% camo.

This was a mechanic i didn't know about, and then i tried to explain it with diffrent ways i knew might be posible, and it is not possible to my knowlegde that you can remove bushes so you can spot the enemies through then as they were not there.

I can help, the bushes still give you different amount of cammos, just like before. Nothing changed.

Anyway, there are another issue on many maps, there a lot of bushes which provide you with 0 cover.

The different kids of fallen trees and bushes had it pre 1.0. But no one has done the same test since then to confirm differently.

Dont worry, World of Tanks is utterly cancer at the moment.

I suggest everyone to just quit this [edited]game.
