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.

  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.
