I've thought about this since I first played but I think never posted about it.

 

Would it be helpful if the unspotted red dots appeared on the map once the battle was lost/won for the few secs after you can't shoot and before it goes to the results scheme?   I alwasy thought it would help people learn what was going on, and where they were hidden for another time.

There was a bug years ago which actually did this and which they ultimately fixed. I don't remember finding it overly informative knowing where the enemy was located after the game. Theres generally only a few places they are going to be anyway.

Most players cant even see where the cap circle is on assault and encounter battles so either they don't have the map on, or they will never learn anything anyway.

I must admit that there are occasional games where all efforts to find the guy have failed and the timer ends...in those events I'd have liked to see where they'd hidden

I think if a player is evading you then it should be their secret to use again, not have it revealed to everybody on the enemy team. It is their hard earned map knowledge they are using so stop being lazy and develop your own map knowledge.

They also had a "bug" that auto muted map spammers after 3 seconds around the same time. That suddenly went away. I liked the fact we could see where the last enemy was when the victory screen came if you were looking for it. There were so many games when I had driven past arty at close range, but he was in a ditch or behind a double bush as revealed on the map. But I don't recall it was a bug or not tbh. But it was around for a patch or two. And I liked it. Must have been around 7.8 or 8.1 there about.
