So with the incoming arty nerf and its lame stun mechanic it is only time to go back to the ORIGINAL world of tanks that did NOT have the ridiculous alien powers of Sixth Sense.
Sixth Sense is OP.
Sixth Sense has NEVER existed for any human being EVER!
It makes no sense whatsoever to have sixth sense in the game.
Sixth Sense cheats light tanks out of their ability to scout and spot tanks. Before sixth sense a tank would come around a corner and not know he was spotted and would continue to drive out and finally get shot but by that time it would be too late for him to quickly get back to cover before tanking more damage.
Now that same tank drives around the corner sixth sense goes off before teammates can even get their turrets turned and aimed in and he is back behind the corner.
LIGHT TANK CHEATED!
Tanks can basically spot/scout without ever actually seeing the enemy nor damage done to the environment all due to once again ALIEN POWERS!
Now you know there are tanks in the area because your Alien Powered Sixth Sense told you????
With the incoming arty nerf their is no justification to keep sixth sense around anymore!
The crybabies got their way and so they shouldn't be allowed to have some bogus sixth sense skill. You only know you are spotted when you are shot or see the enemy forces yourself.
The wn8 farmers will rage and complain but if they were truly skilled they wouldn't need sixth sense.
So in conclusion War Gaming, it is time to remove Sixth Sense from the game, it never should have been in the game it has no real world reference to base it off of, and it cheats light tank players from being able to effectively scout, it was not in the original part of the game and was only implemented due to players crying about you guessed it, arty.
So I was thinking while I was laying down to go to sleep last night considering all that was posted.
And in fairness and in its own right with the comparison perhaps sixth sense should not be completely removed ( I feel that it should doesn't make any sense zero real world references, ect.)
So An amendment to the proposal would be that sixth sense will ONLY work if the player that is actively spotting you, is his/herself spotted by your team at the time.
This will still re-balance and make it fair for passive scouters that should be able to spot tanks without them knowing.
However other tanks including active scouts that do the constant circles and peaking over ridges will still have sixth sense work as it is now.
This would at least give way to the argument that you could 'suspect' you were spotted since the tank that indeed just spotted you was also spotted by your team.
So War Gaming, my amended proposal would be to remove sixth sense alert IF the player that is spotting is NOT spotted his/herself. Otherwise sixth sense can work as it currently does. This still address the unbalance of trying to play a scout tank and having a skill take your ability away.
