I noticed they took away the arty tracers today so they can't see where their  shots went.
Will that be fixed?

Or signs of the times?

Noticed it as well.  I'm guessing that's why I wasn't getting hit by any counter batteries.

Can NOT confirm cause I've not had time to check, but someone posted earlier that it's related to "extra effects" in graphics settings.

 

From what I recall the poster didn't elaborate, so not sure if it just needs enabled or ratcheted up to a certain point as it's a slider setting.

Bump up the Extra Effects one level to see tracers and many more annoying, fps-robbing destruction effects.

This worked in the broken-down update BEFORE this latest, even more stupid busted update. DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE.

All HE shells have lost tracers. Tested.

Weirdly, I could see them on the work computer, can't on my gaming rig at home. Hmm... is the SEA server on the same patch, I play different accounts on the two comps?

It's more than just missing tracers.  I get no sound (explosion) on hit.  Damage count not showing up on target and round disappears into target like it was a total miss. Damage counter does increase and kills register on a splash damage.  Other than that it acts like a blind shot kill.

I've had some difficulties with tracers since 1.0, but my potato PC is to blame here, I haven't noticed significant changes since the update, though.

Extra effects is at max and it didn't change anything for shell tracers

Was missing tracers, even my own after the last update.  Increase the graphics a bit and they came back.  Next day they were gone at all graphics levels.

Yesterday when playing arty, I noticed that I wasn't able to see my rounds at all.  This made it more difficult to aim as it's harder to gauge if you are over or under shooting a target when we can't see how the round is flying.  All you can see is the explosion at the end.  While it's a bug, maybe this could be a "nerf" worth keeping.  It certainly made it more challenging and interesting, especially trying to hit moving targets.
