So all of a sudden I don't see the "lit" tank rounds as they whiz by and I also can't see vapor trails when playing arty and hunting for arty. I don't think I've changed any of my settings that would affect this, but I could have I guess. Can any of you tell me what may be going on and what I can change or tweak so I can see the rounds/vapor trails again? Thanks in advance

Others have complained about this recently.  So I'm guessing it's a low priority glitch waiting for the next micropatch. You could also check your graphics setting, for example I have to use medium setting and never see them anyway.

It is the update, 

I  spent the entire weekend with a ticket about this.

Pages and pages of suggestions from their techs.

Mine at least is not the game settings. I tried  that before sending in a ticket.

 

Mods installed or not, no tracers. Installed several graphics drivers at their suggestion, spent 1/2 the weekend with no computer at all, as windows only loaded 1/2 the time. 

Finally loaded the wrong graphics driver at their suggestion and now at least windows, steam and WG loads. Still no tracers.

They even got me to use their diagnostic tool 3 times to no avail. I can play, just without the tracers.

They have sent all the reports to the development team, and basically said they are looking at it and watch the news.

Mine have been missing since the update, graphic settings are fine, my game is vanilla, and I've tried the repair tool. I figure it's down till the next patch.

Some people see them still or maybe they are using warpack. I have seen arties countered several times and hear that some do and don't see them. So whats up???

When I play arty, I take no chances and still move.  Too easy to get the sitzkrieg bad habit.

We should have a special section in the forum just for arty players. Cause none of us but you one-finger clickers care about this issue.

Really hate to point this out to you, but if you do not care. Why on earth would you, not only click to view the post, but also type? Sort of sad.

 

So, your comment that no one cares is sort of spoiled by your weak little commentary.
