I am just finding that a number of my mid tier range Tank Destroyers (7&8) are getting spotted at range, 5 or 6 squares distance. Behind a bush it's like they have no camo at all at times, especially if I move to adjust gun aim or fire. Were they made this way or is camo broke/not really functional at +2 MM?

 

If not broken what camo rate % should I be aiming for?

It's probably because the reds have a silent spotter closer in, I do it all the time in my lights or stealthy TD's and get spotting damage for my efforts!

 

I'm finding high 600 + are a minimum cammo for a TD, preferably in the 800's.

"5 or 6 squares" haha what is that supposed to mean? Do you realize that the maps have different sizes but the amount of squares is the same?

Don't forget since Update 1 some bushes don't actually give you any camo value, you don't know which ones though because WG like that you just randomly get screwed.

That depends on the tank ofc. As the smaller they are the bigger it should be. Most of my mid tier TD's with camo net are in the 30 to 40% area. As some of mine have 50% even like the Hellcat. But then you have sluggers like the T28 HTC or some of the SU's. Most of those are still below 30%.

Yeah, it's an amazing "feature" when you're double bushed or spotting from a bush and suddenly you get twatted by everyone and their mum.

thanks

 

guess I'll need crew 4+ skills like my lights for TDs to start to work as intended :(

 

I just like tank hopping too much to build up skills :/

Always provide actual examples (replays) if you think something is broken.

 

There is no general problem with TD camo.

No, you just need camo skill and double bush. If you are sitting in a bush and fire, your camo is nil.

Well to be fair, camo is entirely irrelevant on those tanks since they act as good support for heavy tanks or can even take on the role of a spearhead assault vehicle thanks to their armor. The T28 HTC in particular is excellent at poking around a corner and remaining impenetrable. Repairs before camo. ;)
