My radars seem not to be working properly. I can only spot enemy tanks about within half of the range I'm supposed to. So in most scenarios they spot me but I cannot spot them. No chance.
- No matter whichever vehicle I play with.

- Foliage, bushes, rocks, whatever ... are not in the game in play.

Spotting is calculated by your view range and their camo. If your camo is lower, they can spot you from further away then you can spot them.

 

Edit: Simple example. Say you are in the open with 445m view range at the top of a hill. And in the open field in front of you there is a TD with 50% camo when stationary. And 25% when moving.

 

If he is stationary, you won't spot him until you are 247m away. If he is moving, you will stop him at 346m. So the more you have past 445m, the easier it will be for you to spot him earlier. Even tho the max spotting distance is 445, it helps you counter their camo.

 

So if they have binocs up with close to 500m view range. They will see you way before you do.

Simplified: Each tank has a camo rating, if the enemy has a 50% camo rating then you will spot it at half your view range.

Hey, I'll have you know that I've got a few of those "Invisible tanks". I've earned them, and you will get one when YOU have earned it ! ;)

24,000 battles, and you don't understand how spotting works in World of Tanks?

Ebay account much?

Quite the conundrum, indeed.

Also, don't forget that each and every tank has its own built-in camo value, that is improved by crew skills and the application of paint or a camo net.

For 5 years "the invisible tanks" wasn't an issue. It's been happening only for a few months lately.

It's never been as issue.

That is, it's never been an issue if you understand the game.

Watch it, people get warnings saying stuff like that, even if it were true.

Incorrect, behold the invisible KV-4

 

It's less about 'invisble tanks' & more about using the environment & checking where the enemy spotters are & exploit the gaps in spotting. Can sometimes lead to interesting matches where big huge tanks with no camo pop out of nowhere because houses & bushes obscured view & no spotter thought of covering that particular spot/lane.

Maps and cover etc has changed a fair bit the last 5 years. The targets you face and the crews they have are not constant either. And thus with all the variables in there. You might have seen more players with good camo % and more view range then you vs before. It's that simple.

 

As again, if you have less view range then they have, and less camo. Be it when moving or stationary. They will spot you first, and you might not see them when they fire. It's that simple.

A KV-4 without camo and such a tiny mini-map, please put that picture in a spoiler.

Factor in some of the broken bushes also - on malinovka one side has bushes you can park in and not be detected until proxy spotted, the other side you get detected a lot earlier - both sets of bushes look the same.
