no tracers = no counter. Isn't it a plus for arty players, knowing you don't need to move after you shoot?

Yeah, it sure must suck being hit from the other side of the map, from a position you considered to be safe like that. If only every other tank class could know of that same feeling...

Arty is more OP than ever. It aims faster, more accurate and more splash. Yes you lost pen and alpha. But now you constantly ruin others matches by bs splashes that can nuke crew members/destroy modules with ease. Rinse and repeat every 30ish seconds.

This was fixable before the last micro-patch by changing some sliders, but now I can't find anything to fix it.

Some of us SPG players liked to counter fire enemy arty.

I did, but the splash nerf made it very hard now. Got to be very lucky to be right on target with just the tracers to target them.

 Change your graphics settings to mid level "Extra effect quality".

I also cannot see Arty Tracers either.   i cannot change the graphic settings as it drops my FPS severely.

Its all about anticipation.

 

All of you need to realise that the enemy will shoot at the reverse map of where you have been. Your favourite spot, best angle, favourite kill shot ....etc.

 

The "AI" Artificial Intelligence "BOT"  learns where you have been (Not your Porn!! likely :harp:) and where yoo attack from. Oh and it will most certainly reverse your language.

 

There is no beating it ya bunch of strawberry creams

Typical FailGaming.

Guessing they are trying to hunt Redball using arty, and as they are incompetent at anti cheat programming they are trying to force it.

Enjoy all those replays

lost vapor trails on shots .. it does show where you are but it looks cool .. now it is .. was that my shot or did I hit something on the way 

Faster? on a 2 shots per min .. I would never notice .. 

People say playing arty is easy .. you can tell who are good arty .. we do not play like tankers .. we hit what we aim at and DO NOT fire if our side is near the target 

you guys ask for help  but unless you are outside splash range you will die too 

you run around in you little tanks .. shooting willy nilly 

we cannot do that .. we have to predict where a tank is going to be ten seconds in the future 

sometimes we actually get it right 

or 

watch in horror as one of our side drives into our shell 

If they took away the friend fire damage turn blue thingy ..arty would have a field day 

but since the penalty is still in effect even though it causes no damage 

we cannot help you if you are nose to nose with the enemy

Spoke to WG staff and they realize the new issue isn't fixed with graphic tweaks.  I guess previously low graphics couldn't see tracers.  They're working on this new issue.

No issues for me whilst playing on ultra high settings. Every setting I have is on maximum.

I noticed this after the last update this past week. I play on two Windows 10 machines, one with NVIDIA GPU the other with an AMD GPU and the problem appeared on both the same day. My graphics sliders are maxed out, so that's no fix.  I opened a ticket to report the bug and was initially told to reinstall the NVIDIA drivers. I did; no fix. When I reported this, I was told to basically reinstall my Windows 10 OS, which I refuse to do. The problem ain't at my end: it's in the last patch on their end.

 

I play all classes of tanks, including SPGs, and I think they improve the game play. Until this issue is resolved, I guess I'll stay away from SPGs. Without shot tracers, it's hard to figure under or over shooting and counter-battery is impossible. In my opinion, it's a real downgrade to SPG capability and makes camping a better strategy for all other classes to tanks.

No tracers for me either.

I play on Ultra settings, and nothing has changed with my computer.

Has to be on Wargamings end.

Plus side, I won't be counter batteried.

Weird not being able to see my shots, certainly makes adjusting aim impossible.

Don't count on that, tracers are working for some.  Still best to shoot and scoot to be safe.
