So this is a new one for me, though a clan mate said he's seen the same thing.   Tier II (slumming while I work my way up to the Ki line) last night, all bot battle.  One of the red planes was "invisible" - I could see the tag for it, but not the airplane, and since it seemed to be overly fond of me I had to deal with it (post squall line, of course).   It wasn't impossible to hit, but it took me valuable time I could have been capping another sector to dispatch it.

 

Anyone else ever encounter this?

 

To paraphrase an infamous spice smuggler, "I've flown from one side of the map to the other, and I've seen many things, but I've never seen anything to make me believe in an all powerful bot."  Until now....

I didn't take it as you being mean :)

 

I'm not surprised it's an existing bug (like invisible ground targets, respawning in someone else's plane, etc).   It was new to me - just wanted to make sure it wasn't something on my end :)

WeeGee just doesn't like you anymore.  Just like they do not like me either.

In almost 9500 battles I've seen the invisible plane bug only once. Never respawned in another plane--does that only apply when you switch aircraft in battle? I've never switched planes.

On the other hand, I see the invisible ground target bug in just about every battle.

I don't know about the Invisible Plane bug but running Check and Repair before every battle seems to work well for the Invisible Ground Target bug.

I do it every two or three days. I'm going to give that a try, Captain. Thanks for the tip!

This tend to happen on extended playing sessions for me...it's a sign that I should exit and re-enter...

   I also have experienced Invisi-plane.Not often, but enough.

Today i had a game that we lead the whole battle and was 

leading the battle at the end of the match up,Then the game 

acted like all my teams planes were shot down and they was not.

We lost 792 my team versus 358 their team. The MM treated my

team as if all our planes were killed,There was 5 planes left on

my team including myself  ??????????????????????

 

 

I beleive wargaming has done something,I dont know what

But it has affected the bots somehow.I only have this belief

due to all the bot complaints lately.
