Outspotted by a moving T28 while in ELC EVEN 90

Recommended Posts

What's going on here?

I am fully stationary (not that it matters in a light tank), passive, fresh 100% crew but Natural Cover directive used.

The T28 moved down from the hill, drove straight to me and spotted me first.

Its difficult to check the angles and bush density with the single screenshot (a replay would be better).  Obviously, with a fresh crew without having sixth sense means you never knew when or where you were initially spotted from.  In that instance play like you are always spotted.   

Even a half assed tank count of the city brawl and 1 line push illustrates to the red team that the 9/0 line is lightly defended.  I would suggest the T28 simply advanced and took the obvious well covered route up the middle and incidentally ran into you.  The red team could easily know or suspect a LT in there from previously being lit and because you are not spotted anywhere else.

I suspect the problem is you are too deep in the bushes with solid foliage obscuring your own vision of the T28 and the other tanks.  Thus you simply proxy spot each other.

Learning Point.  With no support fire and no escape route that was a pretty sub-optimal place to be with your teams dispersion.  Even if you were scareing them with lights and slowing the advance, if the red team is never punished for peeking/moving the fear will dissipate quickly.

@8_Hussars makes a good point - if you don't have 6th sense, how do you know you weren't spotted all along? He's close enough for a proxt anyway - kinda stupid to spot there given the bushes are too thick to spot through for you (you've double bushed yourself, whether by accident or on purpose i can't tell).

Or, you know, maybe it was hacks.

Thank you. I double/triple bushed myself to hell I think.

You might have had a small part of your tank sticking out. Also t28 may not be theone who spotted you. I've had 1450 games in my elc even 90 and in my experience nothing spots you first except for high tier meds/lights that have much better crews than you and are kitted for vision and are in a bush while you arent.

From that SC it looks like you proxied each other so you were both lit at the same time and since he was pointing at you and you didnt move at all, he probably just clicked you. Not much of a mystery I think
