I feel like they are, I've been constantly doing around 3k spotting when actually trying in My RU-251. I am aware that tracking assistance counts, but lets be honest. You shoot the tracks of most players and they ignore what they're shooting at to score damage on a soft little light tank. I can almost never get even 3k in maps like prokhorovka even in the magical E1 bush. I feel like 4k assistance damage should be reserved for the T28 HTC mission. Theres just too much luck involved. Even in a platoon, I struggle to hit that 4k mark.

When a HAVOK platoon is having trouble doing something, you know it's bad.

I had my T37 on prok and I got 4k spotting damage when I was trying to complete the 1k spotting damage mission. Fml

I've done 3k spotting in a BP on at least 2 occaisions.  I don't think 4k is impossible to do in a real scout.

 

I will agree that it's hard to do.  But it's supposed to be hard.

The issue is not really the amount of damage. 4k is small change for tier 7 or 8 lights. The issue is that so very few of the maps are conducive to any real amount of scouting that you're playing a constant lottery for Prokhorovka, Prokhorovka on Fire, Malinovka, Steppes, Swamp, and little else. I got 10k while doing LT-11, but of course it didn't count for 15. The mission is easy if you can get those maps, doubly so if you brought a platooned artillery piece or two along to blast what you see.

Done solo, with pubbies, and I'm just a lowly green player. There's a bit of luck involved.

I have to agree that a lot of this is luck. I'll be trying to scout purely for this mission rather than play my lights as aggressive little mediums and half the time either a friendly medium who can match my view rangedecided to play agressive and takes half or all of what I may have gotten or nobody shoots the targets I need gone. Worst part is I had a Chaffee game not to long ago where I did almost exactly 4k spotting no problem on multiple occasions. Now that I'm trying to do so I fail miserably. I guess just letting it happen is the best option :/

4k damage with the current maps is beyond stupid.

 

There are maybe 3 maps you can do that on and it requires your team to be elite moon snipers.

 

Hell, 2k damage is hard to do anymore.  

 

Then there's the final MT mission:  Kill 2 TDs.  Oh how will I ever do that?

 

Edit: Oh look they removed the bushes N side of Airfield, can't [edited]do it there now.

hell no, 4K is easy, but you have to PASSIVE scout.

 

I have had 9K spotting dmg games.

considering that it appeared that maliknova wasn't even in the rotation all weekend, one needs to have assault/encounter turned on like my platoonmates have, which meant sand river is a lot more viable for scouting


 

sadly, this wasn't for any of my LT missions...  my clanmate moved up the SPG mission line though, by one shotting an object 704 that I lit

just make sure you read the mission correctly, and don't have a TD  and Arty platooned with you like I did above  :|

 

now, if I could just torch somebody in a medium tank...

Me too.  In 2013.  The current map reworks removed all spotting places.  It used to be easy to pull off, but now there are maybe 2 spots on a map if you're lucky.  And getting 4k isn't going to happen.

If anything you can't passive scout, you have to ridge ride and hope you have 4 huge arty or some other crap.

if there was a mission reward for patrol duty losses, I'd have that one many times over... somewhat surprised that such a condition isn't in the game given how inane/arbitrary/dumb some of the mission objectives are

Out spotted by RHM in a field with no cover, while in a bush in my 251.

 

Awesome.

Patrol duty or something similar would make sense.  Thus they didn't go with it.
