The other day I had at least 5 red planes disappear right in my sights... Then they reappeared to my right about 90 degrees... I've also encountered planes with no tag & can hardly see them... God forbid if you don't... I shot a few like this down.... My question is this a glitch in the game or is this the new stealth mode?... Don't know that I want to play if this is new stealth mode.

Xmass patch feature. It has been talked about and reported to deaf developer ears looong ago.

Yes, encountering the same thing - planes disappear (still there as a "shadow" but without the tag). Has ruined a match more than once. Cannot believe this and the sound problems are occurring in a "mature" (not new) game.

What crazies have control of this game?.. Can't leave the game hanging on bad updates that give unfair advantage to either side!!… This is so stupid even for WG.. Totally idiotic of them... I want this HOTFIXED!.. What is wrong with you's.. No excuses are even tolerated & can't believe players aren't leaving by floods... No wonder guys are giving up on playing this game... Giving up on WG big time... This is dredd, truly dredd!

Business (well ..) as usual.

They've got better things to do, like making up the next set of improvements (ie. new, unasked-for features)...

I've seen it happen as following:

You are heading to a sector that hasn't turned yet and you clearly see one or more enemy planes fighting over that sector.
Suddenly the sector flips while you are meters away of it and all the enemy plane markers disappear on your mini-map.
But as you can clearly see these planes are still there and they are attacking you, they will remain stealth until they get shot down & respawn.

If you turn to get them out of the field of view and then come back the tags will be back on but... ... ... when you cant see them in the first place how are you to move to get them out of the field of view.  Swarthgood beet me in a battle the other day because of that and my low FPS... ... ... but I did get him in the end... ... ... but he won in the end!!!:izmena:

This must need a bump seeing as they have not fixed this... No reason why we should put up with this crap.

I've come across this problem also.  Attached is a screenshot of a bot RB-17 with no icons, HP par, etc.

 

Originally when I was approaching the cap from the east, I saw the RB-17 off in the distance, complete with icons, HP bar, name, etc.  The bot then flew west out of the cap and out of range for me to see.  Then I could see a faint shape of the bomber in the clouds, but no icon.  It doesn't even show up on the minimap.  I kept a visual on it to close in and kill it while taking that picture.  Through the entire time of me shooting it up, the icons never showed up despite me right being on top of it.  Again, it's still not on the minimap.  When that same bot RB-17 respawned, it had its icon, HP bar, etc.

The dev's have no clue on how to prioritize fixes... remember how long they allowed the boost bug to exist?

It is a bit of a pain.  It DOES add to the challenge - a plane is over there, no marker, but still there, and still doing stuff in-game.  I know it's a red team plane, because I see the symbol on the radar.  So, time to go get it.  Shoot it down (no marker ever showed up, so I just kept hosing it down until it blew up), and the marker disappears from the radar.  OK, cool.

 

But really, this bug is almost as vexing as the joystick respawn bug.  Please pass along our desire that both be fixed ASAP.

 

Thank you!

Not even close ...  :(

I can still fly and shoot enemies with that buglet.

I filed and passed along all reports to the team. I will gladly inform you when the fix will be ready for release. :honoring:
