Spotting... when sunk.

I took my T-61 out for a spin in a Random and, after a fairly jolly opening ten minutes, got ambushed and sunk.

 

However after that it seems the survivors manned the lifeboats and successfully earned me another four spotting ribbons. Working as intended, highly amusing, or should I file a bug report?

Bug report it is. Cheers all!

Are you sure you weren't on the submarine test server? :Smile_trollface:

It could be a small server desync: your death came through a split second earlier but you spotted those boats just prior to that. Long time ago I failed a mission: I can't remember the details. I had to do something and had to survive the battle. My mercyshot was inbound but the game just ended before they hit. yet the shot killed me right after the 1000 mark and I failed the mission.

Having been sunk a lot in the last few days I can confirm it's worth staying in the battle as an observer for your team. I like to think I'm bobbing about in a boat having saved the ships cat and a case of the Captains finest Shiraz, and who do I see swimming towards me, oh it's that film starlet who was making a movie on board, seems she's taken her dress off to help her swim. And I get another ribbon or two as well!

I will give you something strange after being sunk.. In my Tirpitz yesterday I have a Japanese (German) Captain... I had been sunk at 11 minutes by a long range salvo from an AsashioB after a confrontation with a Smolensk... Yet from being sunk to the end of the game the Japanese (German) captain continued speaking... she just would not shut up...

 

Never gave it any thought until I read this post.

My div mate got a spotting ribbon some three minutes after he was sunk, so... seems to be a bug.

Yeah ok. That's indeed probably a bug....

I had this today. My Nurnburg was a second away from slipping beneath the waves, and I got the Spotted ribbon come up. First and only time I've seen it.

Similarly you can earn spotting ribbons from returning planes that you have no control over that happen to pass over opposing ships.
