Since the Server Maintenance Update of today (14th August) I've noticed that in the overhead view when playing SPG my shell tracers have disappeared. I aim, fire and then seconds later see an explosion (or nothing if it's a direct hit), but the usual incoming shell is no longer visible. I checked the update notes but there's nothing about a change here so I can only assume it's a bug. Has anyone else noticed this? It's quite disconcerting.

same here, but i love it no more counter spg 


In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.

more than 400 new vehicles are still planned for World of Tanks

WG have not put everything they do or change in the release notes from around 0.8.7.

Yes, there's nothing quite as demoralising as being one-shotted about three seconds after firing your first shell but as a solution this is not an improvement.

Ah i noticed this last night playing my sons account and doing a bit of arty for some missions, you could not see the splash on the enemy tank.

I get why they may have removed tracers from seeing enemy arty, but removing it from even seeing your own shells seems a bit... WG.

You post this information almost like you expect someone from WG to :

a) Come into the forums and read the post

b) Actually give a rats

c) Could be bothered to pass the information on

 

The Camo has been screwed since 1.0 and that was confirmed by Tan and Conan doing there own testing . Yet with each patch nothing is done about it .

 

The only genuine option left now is learn how to speak / type russian . Then create a RU account and see if you can get enough support on board to influence a change .


Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .
