Anyone Encountering Phantom Pins?

Hi all, first post on the new forum,

Does anyone else encounter what phantom pings while playing ground games? I often see the red marks appear on the map, normally accompanied by “Attention to the map!” in English, but with no accompanying sound or the standard radio message.

I assumed these are from people I have blocked, but the phantom pings appear in the oddest places; I’ve given up investigating them.

Is this a bug or am I just seeing activity of people I’ve blocked?

Thanks for any comments on this.

PS thanks to @Pacifica for the help.

Do you happen to have a picture of the map when this happens? Does the ping look like the standard ping or is it a non-flashing red one?

Thanks for the reply.

It seems to happen every map. Next time I play, I’ll try to record the session. Stay tuned! 🙂

if an aircraft gets shot at the ping will pop up on the map in ground battles if its near the map


Huh, I wonder, that could be it. I’ll pay attention to the game I’m trying to play now (server seems to be slow).
