This is really doing my nut now. So many games you re-spawn and immediately SS lights up. 

 

OK sure, once or twice maybe there is a spotter plane up. OK once or twice, maybe there is a hidden LT watching the spawn. 

But it happens so often surely this has to be a bug ? Happens in the starting zones, happens in the middle zones. Happens multiple times in a game.

 

Please tell me I'm not the only one getting this frequently ?

Frontline isn't the type of mode where one goes undetected for any length of time, particularly with a map that has been repeated so much now that people have spotting locations figured out for all spawns.

 

Honestly, SS is kind of pointless in FL and I have disabled the audio cue on mine - when defending a cap zone one is constantly moving back and forth, thus constantly shifting from detected to undetected, but I do not need an audio cue to inform me as I am looking straight at the vehicles that can see me. :D

I assume spotter planes looking for an arty followup

 

The playerbase is pretty sneaky now so getting into an LT432 or EBR and patrolling about for an Even90 is also an option

I have had it happen quite a few times. It's also apparent when on the minimap when a recently died enemy gets spotted when they spawn and the icon ''flies'' through the minimap to the position where they spawn. That's why there is ''ghost'' last spotted locations on the minimap.

 

I don't know what it all is about, but then again I don't mind it too much.
