DICE: PLS Fix SL Spotting Issue In Hardcore Mode

Dear DICE;

Battlefield 4 has been out for 55 days now.

For 55 days Squad Leaders in Battlefield 4 Hardcore mode have been getting teamkilled over and over and over again due to their friendly marker not showing up.

This is a HUGE problem and seriously discourages people from playing as Squad Leads.

I actually know when I've become a SL because I will start to get teamkilled almost every other time I spawn in.

You have failed to acknowledge this issue specifically in the hardcore game mode. You have fixed other spotting issues in the normal game mode, but this one continues to go unmentioned and unfixed. We have been very patient. So much that players have had to alter their game decisions, gun fight strategies, reaction timing and much more just to try to work around this issue.

It may not be high on your list of game breaking issues, but it is a simple issue. One that shouldn't take a lot of time to fix. Please rectify this so we can continue to enjoy the hardcore game mode that we love. If you ship the game with a hardcore mode, it should work. After one month all game mode issues and glitches should be fixed. We are approaching 2 months and you haven't listed this bug ANYWHERE despite its continuous mention in threads, on reddit, battlelog forums, game blogs and more.

Please fix this GAME BREAKING issue in hardcore mode.

Ok DICE, it appears you are getting CLOSER but it is still not fixed.
The squad leader tag still doesn't always show although it will appear faster now and sometimes when you look toward a leader.
It should act like any other squad member which always shows in line of sight.

How difficult can this possibly be?
