Occurs a bit over 14:30. No Patton or forward scout. If this can be explained I'd be happy to learn something new
Guy driving past the water can see undisrupted across the map to the low lying bit on the other side -> spotted.
Guy moves further up the hill & enemies move up their hill -> they disappear.
I think many people don't realise quite the extent to which their spotting is actually blocked by obstacles & terrain.
These are from a different game (R.U.S.E. I highly recommend it if you can tear yourself away from WoT!) but they give a good indication of how much of your view range is affected by that bush 60m away from you, the hill to your left & the building you're sitting next to.
And everyone else bear in mind thats a tank with only 350m view range before the binocs.
So imagine what a Patton could do with 420m view range & binocs in the same place.
T20 to the West is in another good early scout spot by the way.
