Just change it to "You are not spotted" if at any time I am not spotted plz.


Yes I'm being sarcastic but let's be real here, I was happier not knowing. This game has me frantically looking to the sky for flares like some kind of paranoid tweaker half the time I'm spawned.

    I rarely see the spotted message, yet I'm spotted all the freaking time, or so it seems. So I couldn't care less.

    As in it doesn't show up or you don't read it?

    It is a bit irritating to say the least, as you say you cant unsee it.

    Remove spotting by getting shot by bad Scouts
    Remove being spotted by some Spray and prayer
    Remove being spotted by Tanks just for looking at someone.

    Yea seems like I’m always spotted spawned in at the beginning of match first spawn and was spotted some sort of bug. Played Solomon island was spotted well over 2 min no flares went to back of map and it never disappeared finally just quit.

    It’s ridiculous isn’t it??? Spawn in, spotted. Throw smoke, works. Step out of smoke, spotted. Tank near by, spotted. Planes, spotted... for like an hour. Log off, go take a dump, spotted. Has become a friggin joke dude. My #1 complaint if the game.

    Same. Ever since they buffed Flares my enjoyment of this game has sunk to a all time low. Skill has went out the window with the spotting now. Your position and movement on a objective doesn't matter anymore.

    Instead it should inform you what you are spotted by:
    You are spotted by a flare
    You are spotted by a scope
    You are spotted by suppression (or You are suppressed)
    .
    PS: the flares have a lifetime of milliseconds if anyone in the team is remotely aware of bright red lights in the sky.

    Seems like a solid idea.

    I would like to see both,

    Remove spotting by getting shot by bad Scouts
    Remove being spotted by some Spray and prayer
    Remove being spotted by Tanks just for looking at someone.

    AND 

    You are spotted by a flare
    You are spotted by a scope
    You are spotted by suppression (or You are suppressed)

    2 out of 3 times I am not spotted by flares. 1 out of 10 times I am perma spotted (not talking about plane flares)

    I have had at least a few times where I was told that I was already spotted upon spawning in the starting area, in map with no planes...
    The message for the spotting might be bugged sometimes

    You know when you are spotted by supression already.

    I know that it is bugged. I posted a couple of times about already. It's the "you-know-you-can-shoot-down-flares-pro-tip" that is annoying. As if we are too dumb to know.
    -
    There was 1 thing DICE did right imo when they merged normal and hc gameplay into a reasonable compromise to please most players. Most hc players are not into making every weapon a 1 hit kill but refuse to play dorito field. Most obvious example are those bad weather maps when you don't even see half of the players you kill because you just aim right below the spotted icon.

    You know when you are spotted by supression already.
    I did not knew that, what are the signs that you can tell it is from suppression?
