So it just dawned on me awhile ago...But I don't recall seeing any tanks disappear before my eyes anymore?  I know people blamed game "mechanics"...but was it really a bug all along?

 

Again I recall a lot of threads on this topic...not so much anymore.

No such thing ever.

It was always a failure to understand spotting mechanics.

Always.

The will dissappear at a certain distance, it's called resetting your camo.

MK, you almost reset the " Days without thread about vanishing tanks " counter ... 

 

:teethhappy:

Actually, yeah, you did reset it. We're back to 0.

It was never a bug, tanks just went unspotted. People who created those threads just didn't understand spotting mechanics.

I've shot and killed tanks after they 'disappear'. If you've aimed at a tank, but just before you fire it 'vanishes', fire anyway. Chances are you will still score a hit or a kill.
disclaimer: hopefully this post is not too long, or short, is not about a topic already discussed, is in the right place, will not annoy, antagonise, or upset anyone, or otherwise give cause for complaint, cause me to be chastised by the powers that be, and not deleted or locked. Peace, out!

  If tanks started to go transparent at a certain distance and vanished altogether after spotting range was reached I don’t think we’d get these kinds of threads.

that would be so smart.

Devs have never been that smart.

 

 

 

Transparency might be expensive in processing, 

But just be a grey silhouette (like the outlines we already have) for half a second before red tanks vanish away.
