Hey Tankers,

 

Seems some of our allies camo is a little too good.  We are aware that some of your teammates will show as just a shadow or invisible with the team marker over them.

 

Our devs are aware of this issue and currently working on a fix.  Once we get some more information, we'll update this thread as soon as we are able.

 

Thanks for your patience and GLHF!

Why fix it? You should be charging extra for it!

Why?  This is a problem we been wanting fixed for so long, we are now used to it.  Don't bother, just give us the coding so we too can join in on the fun.  Thanks.

Here's some video of the Ghost Tanks.

In the first clip I run into one of them, and then see a second one as I drive to the repair circle.

I slow down the collision in the second clip and show the tank list, which shows that the player I ran into is still "alive" on the list.

At the very beginning of the third clip there's a burning ghost tank to my right, and then after I circle one time you can see a ghost tank take damage and another one drive right by the EBR that I miss with my shot.

 

I suspect this is just a UI issue, meaning that the tanks are still alive but the silhouette isn't displaying.  I've never seen an enemy ghost tank, only friendlies.

Thanks for looking in to this.  I noticed it yesterday.  I accidentally pushed a friendly in to enemy fire because I did not see him.  He was raging mad at me.

From what I can tell, through personal testing, any tank with a non-historical special Style applied (instead of real camo) has the chance of not being rendered (invisible)

A fix like that should tank an hour TOPS.
