Every time I'm in a flight, me and/or my teammate experience these problems :

 

- no kills are shown on the right of the screen

- no score (stays 0:0 til the end)

- killed enemy planes keep circling round, smoking and with 0 health (very confusing as they also show on the mini-map so you think they are still alive). same goes for defense planes that are self-destructed after capture.

- chat doesn't work

Cannot confirm any of these bugs.
Do not know about function of the chat - do not use it.

Zur Info: 
2012 --> WOT Start. Das spiele ich seit vielen Jahren nicht mehr.
Herbst 2017 --> WOWP Start seit kurz nach dem 2.0 Release, bei 1.x hat mich WOWP nicht interessiert.

I confirm it. Indeed, this happens alot when i'm in a flight. Dead planes do not disappear from the radar ("I see dead planes" :) ). No score is shown. Chat does not work.

I've seen this also a few times when i was not in a flight, but not as often.

it is only if you use the "yellow" squad chat - at least from my experience - don´t use it and you dont have any problems.

simply use the blue chat if you want to write with your squad

Squad = flight ?

Yes.  For some reason German speakers transliterate the term in their language to “squad” in English, when we use flight.

Oh didn't know that. Knew it was chat problem so I don't use it when in flight. Will try it next time with blue only.

Geschwader
squadron, wing, fleet, flight <-- thats from google translator

The reason for Germans using  squad, it "feels" more right, as flight could be translated as "Flug" - which actually by the means of german language - can be done alone.

"Geschwader" by Military definitions is actually a larger number of aircrafts, but definately more than two.

In german we use the Term "Rotte" for flight of 2, which can be translated as "gang/troop/pack"

 

Sorry for the offtopic language explanation

Not at all!

 

In fact, in English “flight” means any number of aircraft.  Strictly, the two-plane flight would be called a “pair” (rotte), but most often two of these would be combined into the “finger four” formation (schwarm).  During the Battle Of Britain the inexperienced RAF pilots still flew in the old three-plane “Vic” formation (kette) if not simple echelons (or even in line astern, something I’ve just learned the Luftwaffe derisively called “Idiotenreihen”).

I also (scandinavian) read flight as an object sailing trough space, like a birds flight from tree to tree. Or a bombers flight to its target.

All described problems are a result of a single issue when HUD stops updating and doesn't display new information at a given point of time.

To my great regret I can confirm that the issue appears from time to time when you use flight chat when in battle. The team is investigating this problem but has not found a decision yet. The only thing I can recommend you while the issue persists is to avoid using flight chat.

not just that - you have "ghost planes" as well, once you use the flight chat and you shoot down enemy planes/ defence planes.

that means the planes just dont explode and disappear, but appear still as valid targets but with zero hp until they "respawn". a bit annoying as you don´t know where the nearest real enemy is between all those "ghosts"

thats not a new problem for sure, it appeared as far as i remember relatively at the same time you came up with 2.0

I know exactly what you are talking about, I've faced this issue as well. I can say for sure it's exactly the same issue.
