I know, I'm dead.  But, regardless. 

 

Yes, there -is- an e100 right infront of the tank I am spectating. He shot and I watched it bounce. I was talkin with my toon mates, and they confirmed it was there. ~~ I will upload the replay if requested.

Spoiler

Yup, Wargaming's OP programming skills. It happens from time to time. Seems very random and rare.

With over 20k games  played, how come these things never happen to me.

It's hard to tell from my phone, but from my knowledge of that spot, I suspect I know what happened... Most likely, he is slightly too low to see across the hill he's behind, but just high enough to be shot at.  Of note is your comment that the shot bounced, most likely because the e100 had virtually nothing to shoot at.  Just my two cents

A lot of people forget, or don't realize, the camera is quite high above the tank, and thus think that since they can see the area, so can the tank they are driving

Could lower crew skills because of the stun be playing a part in this?

Happens all the time for me, tanks disappear, ghost rounds, tank driving directly toward me disappears in the open only 200 meters from me, yeah...great stuff. If he was close he should have been proximity spotted...Some of those large hevys have camo ratings that are absurd, you know, all ya gotta do is paint a barn green and it'll blend right in.

I think... could be wrong... that you aren't understanding the OP. He is saying that his platoon mates could see the E100, lit and he could not. For him it was not lit while at the same time for them it was.

Ah. I have heard of a couple strange spotting situations lately where tanks are spotted on the Minimap but not rendered, or vise versa.
