This has been requested by numerous people but nothing has been done about it. Ships out in the open firing at you blink in and out for no reason. Something is seriously broken with your spotting system.

Hello CaptainTeddybear,

Do you happen to have an example of this? Ships that fire and are in LOS of another one of your allied ships will be spotted. Ships can go unspotted if they go behind an island and are not spotted by another one of your allied ships or planes. Ships can also go unspotted if your ship and the enemy ship move outside of firing range that you can be spotted at. Does the ship go behind a smokescreen? 

Without more context or evidence it is kind of hard to determine what you are referring to.

@Kami  When are you guys planning to re implement past spotting mechanics where breaking the LOS, even for a short period of time reset your gun bloom?

The game play was so much faster and smoother under that system, and it allowed aggressive play far more often.

Didn't Sub_Octavian give a rough time frame of like 0.8.5 or so for it to turn around into a proper feature?

That is what I recall as well.  The way the system works now is officially stated to be a bug, but apparently not one that's a super priority for fixing.

I will save the replay next time it happens. Some games it happens all the time and other games it doesn;t happen at all.

Something that does happen a LOT is it takes a long time for a ship to render after firing at you. The game did not use to do this.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind an update either. It's easy for features like this to get stuck in the low-priority bin. Which is too bad, WG could really use a win or two right now.

TY all...I was not aware that was ever to be changed back...glad to gear it will eventually.

Now as for it being a "bug"...when something is "announced" in update notes as going to change that is not a "bug" per any of the standard definitions of the word...bad programming decision...yes...bug...no.

I was in the game you were complaining about. 

You need a refresher homie. Pay attention to the highest armored part bit. I think that’s where you are getting frustrated.
