They shove you about and block you sometimes

 

I thought my ping was gone and was about to reconnect...

 

A game bug that will need to be fixed

it's actually not a bug, it's one of the updates WG was working on for FL over the last year for improved performance - less objects on map:child:

So with less visuals and invisible tanks we get faster gameplay, makes sense

Well done WG

Didn't you read the patchnotes? It's the latest combat reserve. It costs 30 tokens and is unlocked when reaching level 30.

Its a Romulan Cloaking Device, available for bonds. Not the normal bonds, these are the special bonds only available from WG direct. 

You contact WG, use the special code word, leave €5000 in unmarked notes, in a brown envelope (A4 size) sealed with brown parcel tape, under a bench in a designated park or open space as directed by WG. The next day this device appears in your depot ready for use. 

Warning: Must be applied for and installed within 3 days of each FL season starts. No refunds.

Confirmed! was in a Frontline match on "Epic_Normandy". Players name was faded out, equal to what you see on a wreck. One could see the deactive name moving. One could also see the shadow under the tank. I don't know if it was shooting. Can provide the player name and the replay.

•    The projectile trajectory of the Conqueror Gun Carriage (Tier X SPG) was reset to the state of version 1.4.1.
•    Fixed some technical issues.

That error with the Shadow-tanks still happens!
If it should have been fixed with the above patch, it was not successful.
I  have played the Frontline for a couple of hours and had Ghost-tanks in my squad in 2 more matches.
 
It seems to be a symptom, there was never invisible enemies, always teammates.
The error always occurred after a respawn.
 
I suspect it might be an error with the Spectator function. I hope it's not cheating.
I also had a Windows update today and haven't played WoT after that.

It's getting a bit annyoing. I've crashed so many times into cloaked tanks that are not even on the map when driving lights. One even raged in chat as ran into a 3 man platoon, all cloaked. And I had issues getting around them.

 

And I suspect I have been the same for others. As I've seen a few crash into me like I was not even there.

Yep definitely still there as of last night. Wasn’t sure if it was a bug or a cheat! Either way needs fixing
