Massive tanks that disappear into thin air because their spotting timer elapsed.

 

How does a tank like 60tp disappear into thin air at 300 meters? 

 

The game may "look" amazing with new textures and lighting effects but it still uses 10 year old archaic spotting and camo mechanics. Maybe back in the day when everything moved slow and the game had a sense of strategy. Now battles look like twisted metal. 

 

Implement a sort of spotting mechanic that lets you fully see a tank at close range 100 meters, but as the tank moves further away, it starts to become blurry, at 200 meters weakspots will be hard to hit, at 300 meters, tank parts like cupola become blurry, at 400 meters only a blurry silhouette is visible, at 500 meters, theres just a blurry shape, and will be hard to distinguish which way the tank is facing. 

 

Maybe light tanks role will be to decipher the blurry tanks more, if a tank that is 300 meters away "spotted" by a light tank, its shapes will be more visible like from a distance of 200 meters and so on, after spotting timer elapses, it goes back to being more blurry again. 

 

Also make sixth sense instant. This game breeds bad players due to the fact that they dont know when they are spotted and when they are unspotted, combined with broken bushes, very difficult to comprehend spotting and camo mechanic, this game has a VERY steep learning curve. Your average player drives around in a light/ medium tank with no camo, dies within first 1 minute, and has 80k games played simply because they cant figure why they are getting outspotted. 

 

Get with the times, since this game is becoming a 4min battle, twitch shooter, with autoloaders on every new tank, shorten the skill gap so that the average and bad player can catch up, because they still think this is a ww2 tank strategy from 10 years ago.

Why is it that no one will be happy until WG tailors the game to suite each individual malcontents desires?

You and your ilk just need to give it and play the game as it is and shut up or just shut up and leave.

Ok so let's change things to where you are spotted the entire game because your tank makes a lot of noise, emits plumes of smoke, and is constantly being observed and your position relayed. This is what you want?

I'm fine with the current view/spotting/camo mechanics.

 

I've learned them well, and I understand how to use them to my advantage.

 

No reason to change what is working very well.

WG is deliberately breaking the bush mechanic to increase dynamic play. Not just by lowering bushes in some places, but also by removing some. I suspect they also have selectively reduced the effectiveness of some bushes and there are certainly some bushes that just don't offer anything in the way of cover. You will also notice on newer maps that old style double bush TD sniping spots are absent. Most TD sniping spots on newer maps have poor firing lines and they typically have a ramp that leads to the bush that sits on a small plateau that does not allow for the required 15m to remain hidden after firing. Also the introduction of CVS was another way to break bush mechanics on older maps.

He is talking about tiers you don't play at George. Of course you love your six skill crews, camo an spotting when your playing at tier V. Makes you feel like your actually playing well.

I think once you personally spot a vehicle, it shouldn't disappear with the 445M view range unless if goes behind cover.

95% of the player base are bad at the game, so what that 95% has to say is meaningless.

I agree that WG is deliberately encouraging Dynamic play.  Why is this a bad thing?  Was is really that great an experience when we had inviso TDs sniping with impunity and gutting players without being seen?  That's essentially what people who are complaining about Arty are all about after all.

 

WT has much more realistic bush/hidden mechanics.  It's way better where realism is concerned.  It would certainly be better suited for some people.  Unfortunately, this does not make it fun for the majority.  And the populations of the two games reflects that.

You talk about integrity, lol. The majority of your post are severely slanted, state your opinion as fact, and seem to always include a personal attack. Not the most mature way of interacting with other human beings, and certainly not what a person with integrity would do. You must be the nastiest person alive if that's how you are in real life. Must suck to be you.

 

OH how ironic

Perhaps but it is quite clear 100% are poor sports.
