Noticed it 2x in a row now, others have complained as well, so I know it's not 'just me' and my tinfoil hat talking. 

 

Thanks WG.

It isn't gone, but WG changed it's effects level.  You have to turn up extra effects to see it.

 

Now, why? That's a good question.

Is this since 1.6 came out?  I haven't played any SPGs in a couple weeks but I was seeing tracers then with Extra Effects off.

Weird. My experience was that they broke it in 1.6 and then fixed it in a micro patch.

I only noticed it with SPG's, I don't see my own tracers or explosions though I do usually see craters after the shell lands. I do see other SPG's tracers though so I've had no problems with CB. As far as all other tanks I see the tracers just the same as always.

I was wondering what was going on, all my shells in certain matches seemed to act really weird.  But I don't think its something in effects as this happens randomly one match then not the next.

I noticed this, this morning, played one match in a arty for the x2 and saw that I could see the shells but no tracer for the shell.  Mostly you see the shell as a little pixel dot from your eye in the sky view.

Maybe I misunderstood. I haven't tried countering arty in 1.6. I was thinking of the tracer from your own rounds.

Not the case here.  Can turn up to maximum and no tracers at all.  Does anyone run quality control???  I mean how the hell does this get released?

Wargaming just wants your money, they don't care about fixing anything because they think everything is perfect.

Thank God I found this.  First team damage is gone erasing any semblance of realism.  Now this inability to see shell tracers, making it much harder to pull off tracking shots.  I am getting very close to uninstall.

I'm also missing tracers on rt, having tried all of the effects levels.

Which setting - I am running HD and have it all on - cant see arty tracers when I am arty in god mode - so no counter battery?

Found this out myself. Seems like it WAS a micro patch that took them. I have been able to see them till just a couple of days ago. Also noticed that my shells are not coming close to where I aim anymore. Most of them over shoot by a long way. WG if you want to get rid of arty DO IT! Just quit messing them up, give me a refund for all the time I spent in this crap game getting them!!!

Wow, thought it was just me after a month break. Pulled out my 212A to play, about every shell misses, have me wondering what the hell. My 261 same thing, the shells hit everywhere but what I am aiming at. A lot of the shots are far, far off, as if I have a 0% trained crew.

FYI:

 

Another thread is also discussing this issue. 

 

I have been corresponding with a WG Customer Support rep. I am providing updates from that communication in the other thread.

 

See: ARTY TRACERS

 

My fourth communication was this:

 

Nothing is working. And none of the folks posting on the NA Forum are able to identify a remedy.


If the folks who are experiencing issues related to the changes made in the game settings that you mentioned, then it seems logical that the WG game programmers need to find the issue and fix it.


You stated that the issue affected you; it has to have affected them as well. They are the professional experts; they should be able to replicate the issue, identify it, and rectify it.
