It's not hacking, it's game physics. When the tank disappears, It means he left your view range of your tank. Lights and Mediums have the best view range, while heavies typically are poor.

 

I'll link the video if I ever get to a PC.

Credit earning was rebalanced in 2.8 and there were multiple announcements about it and there are no hacks with regards to invisible tanks. Camo and spotting are game mechanics. 

 

So much ignorance in the playerbase...

I don't understand why this is necessary? He's obviously new so point him to where he can find more info on why he thinks he's having an issue. Not sure why it has to come down to insults. Just like a guy who messaged me after a battle last weekend berating me and saying everyone on the team sucked. I straight told him, 'How about instead of berating me and bashing me, why don't you TEACH me something if you think I, or anyone else, is SO bad?"

I'm thinking he meant new to the forums.

 

No matter how many battles you have, unless you have visited and read through the forums, guides, watched vids, a lot of the nuances, even the fundamental ones, can potentially still be confusing to people. And it's kind of hard to know exactly what OP is getting at beyond "make less $, tanks disappear" since he didn't really explain himself very well. Care to elaborate OP? You might get some better help then.

He means 1. he is earning fewer credits since the update, and 2. that there are "hackers" whose tanks go invisible after a few seconds.

 

My explanation why:

1. As for fewer credits,ca lot of tanks received profitabilitynerfs, but repair costs decreases in the previous update.

2. They aren't hacking. When you see them, it is likely because they have just fired, dropping their tank's camo value to a point where you can spot them, but after a few seconds, when their camo valie recovers, they go unspotted again. Remember, its a feature, not a bug. I recommend reading more about camo mechanics on the PC WoT wiki.

I believe he's made a similar post a long time ago, where he received similar replies. My bashing is completely warranted, since he refuses to learn basic game mechanics.

I do understand game mechanics and tanks do disappear.  This evening while fighting in a tier V I was shooting at a tier VII and after hitting him twice my third time going in the tank did disappear in front of me I still took the shot but only saw a splash of dirt.  The tier VII tank reappeared in front of me moving in my direction, time frame was about five seconds.

Explanation is simple: Whoever was spotting the Tier 7 tank died or was no longer in a position to spot the Tier 7. Therefore, that friendly tank will not spot the Tier 7 and he will become "invisible."  A few seconds later, someone had line of sight and the view range to spot the Tier 7 and he appeared.

​What's wrong, I had line of sight on the tier 7 tank when he just disappeared.  Today I was within 50 meters of a tier VII vehicle he disappeared not once but twice while being mobile, it's getting frustrating when you have eye's  on target and the target disappears you fire and nothing registers but a splash.
