So I just re-installed WoT and this strange circle appears.  It is present as soon as I log into the game and persists through everything.  Very annoying.  How can I get rid of this?

Here is the linkto the screenshot of what I'm talking about.

Got a screen shot so we have a better idea of what your talking about?

The research I've done so far makes it seem like some kind of "sonic radar".  The shapes in the circle move during gameplay like where sound would be coming from.

It is quit obvious that it is a mod.  Check what mods you have installed.


Edit: or an overlay from a program like Overwolf?

I just reinstalled the game and have never used mods.

I did check that Overwolf.  It was on my Alienware laptop but wasn't running.  I uninstalled anyway.  The circle is still there.  :(

There are many things that are confusing in that screenshot if you are not using mods. 

 

Only showing Garage and Tech tree (no barracks, store, missions, etc)

No crew management button above crew members.

The orange lines around "Battle".

no button next to your name for Premium time.

No slots for equipment and consumables.

 

I am 99.9% sure the circle is not part of the game itself.

I agree, something else is causing it.  This screenshot is from the bootcamp option when first starting to play the game.  It's a PvE area to get you used to playing the game against bots.

Ahhh....that would explain it.

Can you click on it?  If so, you might be able to turn it off.

 

If the cone points towards where sound is coming from, check your sound programs.  It might be an overlay from that.

 

I tried googling it and could not find anything related.

Fixed!  It wasn't clickable but you are right that it's sound related.  I am on an Alienware 17 laptop.  That overlay is an Alienware-specific option to tell you where in game sounds are coming from, apparently.  I have several games on here and WoT was the first to trigger it for some reason.  Easy to toggle off once one knows where to look.  Thank you for your help!

Glad I could help.  Sometimes when you are using a shotgun you can hit the broad side of a barn.  :P
