It's really stupid that when your detected by Radar, then get detected by sight, that the Radar detection stops showing. It fools you into thinking the radar is finished so you smoke to run, but nope. You still are detected by radar  and you just wasted your life trying to stop in smoke when you should have still been WASD hacking.

If your detected by either radar or sonar there's a scope symbol next to the message. Visual detection just has the message. If the scope symbol disappears hat means someone has you visually spotted. You just had a detected message in the old days and you spend time trying to figure out out if by what means while you get blapped.

I think he knows that.  What he's talking about though is how if you're spotted by radar then get spotted by something being in detection range, the default detected icon overwrites the radar icon.  This causes people to not know if they're still detected by radar, so they use smoke only to see that radar is still detecting them.

 

I agree with the OP.  Radar and hydro detection should have icon priority, as well as separate icons as they used to.  Radar and hydro sharing the same icon now is quite possibly one of the oddest decisions WG has made, especially after they had at one point given them their own icons.

Agree.  Radar/Hydro detection symbol should always override the visual only detection symbol, specifically for the reason you stated.  Pretty obvious, really, in how that might affect a player's reaction and the consequences of such.

It's been an issue since radar first arrived.  Either the devs don't know or it's such a low priority that they've never gotten around to it.
