Enemy tankers can see me but I cannot see them. How could I disguise my vehicles in a more efficient manner ?

Watch YouTube streamers to see how camo works, how to use camo nets and if relevant to the tank you are in as you do not say what class of tank  or if it is all classes for you. Learn how to use bushes  what other equipment is useful like binos or coated optics to extend view range. Crew skills like 6th sense to alert you when you are spotted, etc etc.

 

Your question is too vague to give specific info as what to do to help changes with each class of vehicle and some are relevant for a few and some for all.

Just get a b******* Russian fantasy tank, then it doesn't matter if the enemy can see you or not.

Strange question for somebody who has 22k battles....

It's a balance between your camo % and their view range. If they have more view range and camo then you. You won't spot them as easily back. So getting your camo up with net or crew skills is a simple way to start.

Buy camo directives for 20k per piece.

Also, you can try the Newcomers Forum.

in 3 ways:

1. Maximise your crew with BIA + camo + sit. awareness & recon

2. Maximise your equipment with camonet+ binocs + optics

3. Put camouflage on the tank

4. Option: buy camo directive for even more camo

This way I equip pretty much all my LT and MT and results are very good,... I rarely  get outspoted !

Are you suggesting that once you hit a certain number of battles you stop learning or should not attempt to learn and improve?  You find his position strange, I find yours baffling. 

 

People can be happy doing what they are doing then come across something that makes them want to change or improve.  That can happen at any point in life.  I did not start studying for my geology degree until I was 40. Every day I endeavor to learn something new.  Somedays that thing is something people far younger than me learned at school.  I have never been embarrassed to admit my ignorance.

I think he means its weird that someone that experienced dont know how camo work. And his wr and super sloppy unengaging way of asking kinda shows he is not someone used to making an effort. 
 

It IS good that he comes here to ask, though.

concealment isn't the biggest issue, try to use less of the "W" button on your keyboard and when you get shot at try to use the "S" button instead of standing still trying to figure out who is shooting you

When you get shot at and you can't see from where there are a couple of things you need to do.

Firstly you need to look at the minimap and figure out if your position is bad or you just got unlucky.

Secondly you need to think about the position of your tank, if you angle correctly or not.

And lastly [edited]

After 22k battles he still dont have any clue how camo works......

So after 22k battles ...you still dont know the TOTAL BASICS!

IF you have a few hunderd battles i can understand...but 22k battles come on....

thats 22.0000 x10min=thats over 3000 hours of game play.....

No, Its not a stupid question.  I know how camo works technically, but how do i get to use it to my best advantage is another thing.  putting theory into practice....   I die lots and lots.  mostly to unseen tanks.  I find it irritating that I max out my view range but many players have max maxed their camo....   Though I did think there was an "autospot" range...

You have a similar number of battles and aren't much better than the OP - perhaps people should start getting judgemental on you too...

Can you please look up the common fallacies of post hoc ergo propter hoc, unwarranted assumption, and argument from incredulity. 

 

I am sure you have more than 3000 hours of communicating, yet you cannot spell hundred, or capitalize correctly.  However, I realize that I know nothing about you other than this tiny window of dialogue,  I do not know if you are not a native English speaker, if you are dyslexic, using a phone, in a hurry, tired, lazy or ignorant.  Given I have no useful data, I cannot form an accurate opinion. People should spend time being critical of their own thinking, endeavor to know as many true things as possible and learn some common logical fallacies.

I have seen threads on here in the past with players with twice that many games arguing about VR issues. People with a vast knowledge and experience of the game disagreeing with each other; so I don't think its a stupid question at all.
