Hello again, 

i saw this posted before with no replies to it, lately i noticed that 210mm arty shells (big stuff) trace is not viable anymore, nor any other arty shell pretty much. not my own, neither enemies. makes counter - arty nearly impossible without good audio 3d setup and huge fps

so my question is, is that option or bug or intented, can i turn it back on or wait for it to get fixed?

 

cheers!

I have no idea how viable arty tracer are but I saw some reports that they are not visible if you have low graphics settings.

I actually do not see tracers as well, neither mine nor enemy.

Thought it could be because of mods at first, but, nah.

I can not see them either and I play with Ultra so at the resolution it can not be so .. I assume that Wg has made it aware of the conterartys get away.    Maybe someone can comment on it and enlighten us what is now fact why you no longer see the tracer

If it were so.. why not telling beforehand? I have been checking SPG missions (stug, t28htc,t55a,260) and the "countering" ones have dissapeared, so it is possible it were intended.

It seems that some couldn't see tracers after 1.6 was launched, still worked for me though.

The recent micropatch seems to have caused problems with tracers now not visible to all.

Meant to include this link to other arty problem....

It's regarding to all tracers.

You cannot really see tracers in first person look when sniping, unless you shoot via arcade aim.

thanx for feedback fellas, in my opinion, countering enemy arty is suppose to make it fun to play even more, and countering is tactic that makes you wanna relocate between shots and find different spot other then same goddamn bushes on every map (except malinovka, cause that map is literally just bushes)

so, tracing was fun, now its just more cancerous for non spg players, cause i had other players asking me nicely to counter arty so they can advance certain flank (advanced tactic warfare amirite) but now....good luck with 30 sec stun every 35 sec

You need to check your settings.

 

There's an option called "Extra effects quality" or something of that nature.

 

If it is set to OFF, you will not see:

 

>Burned up tank textures after their destruction nor their smoke, only the regular model.

>Tracers, only the shell itself.

 

Set it to "LOW" or higher for them to appear again.

Im also not able to see tracers. And since 1.6 arty feels different. Im not big arty player so dont know for sure but sometimes I get shots outside the aiming circle, it feels like more shots are miss. And once for two games I had missing dots from aiming circle where nothing was obstructing my gun.

I can see enemy tracers, but not mine when I hit blind.

I can't tell if the shell hit something outside of the screen or where I aimed.

 Thx MindSplitter1 for the hint about how to see tracers. I will try your suggestion, because I can no longer see them but have been counterbatteried a couple of times, so I guess some players see them.

 

I also had a problem like the one stated by gikxer as quoted above. Not every time but on one particular battle many of my shots fell outside the aiming circle and also at one point I was shooting at a tank that was dangerously close and I took two shots at him before being killed and both went right through him or just vanished without any effect. On another occasion a shot landed within the aiming circle and quite close to an enemy tank right by its side but did not stun it, let alone damage it. I assume I had a synchronisation issue. Restarting my computer fixed it and I did not have such problems again that day.
