Log out & log in. Usually helps.

I have not really looked at the spotted ribbons in Live Server. But testing CVs in PTS shows that sometimes ribbon is rewarded for multible times (but only one can be real first spotter). For example, got 14. spotted ribbons in one battle in PTS. Have not heard they are chaning ribbons, so most likely the bug is present in Live aswell.

Probably, cuz I have spot the enemy Flint 2 times.

Only first spots count.

Respotting does not count for the mission.

Well, then as usual WG has wrong mission description. I thought that there are 2 different ones they use - spot and be 1st to spot.

There should be 2 different indicators if there are 2 types of spot ribbon. I hope I could tell right WG!!

Its actually correct, alltho the description is questionable.

 

- Spot 6 ships (as @Profilus said, i think they used to write "be the first to spot" )

- Get 6 spotted ribbons

 

There is the difference basicly. Ive read both, and the first one means different ships, the other is counting the spotted ribbons. (if you dont know, you can get a spotted ribbon every 1 minute if the ship is not spotted)

Well, it's not exactly "wrong" - there is no mistake, just terminology that might be somewhat confusing for unenlightened (WG communication skillz ztrike back)

 

Basically, there are two similar but different mission conditions:

1. Get X spotting ribbons

and

2. Spot X ships

 

Every ship can be spotted by someone only once per battle - after that the ship is considered "already spotted" for the rest of the match (if you see a "shadow" of ship's last known position on the minimap, it means that the ship has already been spotted). Getting spotting ribbons is significantly easier since these are awarded also for re-establishing contact after a spotted ship had slipped from view for long enough (I don't remember how long precisely, but I think you can get that info if you hover your cursor over the ribbon).

Now, currently most missions/tasks want you to accumulate spotting ribbons - but it should be noted that all of them state that clearly in their respective completion conditions. These missions/tasks explicitly demand you to accumulate a set number of ribbons of this kind. If, however, the condition asks for "spotting ships" rather than "accumulating spotted ribbons", it means that this particular task/mission doesn't follow that trend and what's needed is the initial spot; merely re-establishing a lost contact won't do the trick.

AFAIK the spot ribbons "refresh" after a certain time. So it shouldn't matter if you spot the same ship over and over after the "cooldown" for spotting has expired. I'd say something's really off here OP. I'd say this is worthy of getting WG's attention. @MrConway

Only the first spot counts for the ribbons, unfortunately the mission description here could be clearer. But this is working as intended.

I had the same problem but I think a spotted ship that breaks contact will be classed spotted again after 90 seconds of undetectability so you can spot the same ship twice but will only count as 1 spot.
