So I am a big fan of stakes and though I do my best to communicate to my teammates when I place them in high grass or forest...mistakes are made....lol.   They are not visible (highlighted) when there is no visibility to your own teammates.  I think everyone would be happier if they were still visible for friendlies through fog of war.  All who agree please bump or like this post!

Agree.  Accidentally running into pikes doesn't happen in life, the soldiers would see them and stop.

Honestly, previously spotted enemy stakes should stay visible and highlighted too. Nothing worse than moving across a battlefield late in a match through an area you've already killed all of the enemy and some random stakes obliterate an entire unit.

so dunno if anyone knows this. but if you hold down the space bar it highlights the spikes. it even shows the range of ur teams archers. it used to show the enemy spikes up till 2-3 weeks ago. the only problem i have with spikes in insta droping them. cav about todo a charge enemy units stops 1 second spikes kills all ur cav. Other then that spikes working

You should not have to hit space bar to see allied stakes.

LoL, not only the stakes being visible but even the point that so many can be used in such close proximity to the next set of stakes..........But yes I agree you shouldn't have to use an alternate button to see friendly stakes though......But are stakes actually friendly??? Or just neutral???

One can have the highlight turned on permanently (no need to press space) by editing Main Menu > Options > Unit Identifiers > Common > Standard View > Deployable Highlights > Always.  Personally I also set Main Menu > Options > Unit Identifiers > Allies > Standard View > World Space > Movement Path > ON so I can always see where allies are moving.  I want to know immediately if an ally changes orders and what they are targeting all the times.  Worth the slight clutter.  Actually, the only thing I have set to the space bar alternative view is display of friendly fire arcs.  Good to know if you are working with arty on your team.
