Hello all

Got this issue when was doing further mission for Italian BB early access. As per my understanding process should be following: you spot enemy ships, your team kill them, you receive all enemy lost XP summarized. Logical? for me yes.

But seems WG has different point of view on it, so would be nice to hear it.

Latest example, I spot 6 ships in one battle, my team destroyed all of them (Coop mode), I received only 1180 points, which is about 1 HE shot in total! Please see screenshot enclosed.

- not XP, hitpoints

- and only as long as the enemy ship is not visible to your team mates directly. And since bots always open fire on max range (= they are spotted for everyone in this range), it is very likely that your team isn't depending on you spotting for them. It doesn't play a role if you spotted an enemy first...

XP, hitpoints - anyway, damage, received by enemy.

About visibility - I used French DD Le Fantasque with full ahead speed 53.4knots, so it was only me, who spot all those ships even before they started to shoot. And they started to shoot me after that, so become targets for my team.

that's why you earned the "spotted" ribbons

sure, and so you don't earn any spotting damage for those bots anymore since they "revealed" themselfes to your team mates by firing on you. This isn't WoT...

 

and no, this "mechanic" is not new in this update, it worked this way for years...

Ok, so what is the most effective way to get most of that points in battle?

don't play coop ;)...

 

of course it is possible to get several 10k xp of spotting damage in coop, but that's usually only luck, not "planning"...

Play random.

Ok, that`s why I received plenty of them before, probably it was Random mode then. Thank you for clarification, for sure I disagree with that mechanics from WG, but at least it is a bit more clear for me

Get something stealthier than your Le Fantasque, get in as close as you dare, and DONT FIRE yourself.

 

That is how you get assistance damage in co op.

There is an option on Coop, but it is not nice.

 

Use a DD with smoke. Lay a smoke wall in front of your team that they cannot see the enemy. Then spot. Make sure that you do not get sunk or your teammates might not be amused.

That's one way to lose karma even if you survive the attempt. And there's no guarantee you will.

Now reward spotting damage, because it's not awarded anything at the moment.
