High caliber in my T49 playing from the front.  Obviously I failed my team by killing 4 tanks and doing over 3k damage.

 

Your own damage should count.  So you don't sit there doing absolutely nothing while you have shots.  Then it would be on par with all the other final missions.

Yeah.

 

It seems like a tough mission to complete at the moment with all the YOLOing going on.

 

Especially difficult  when you compare it to other missions - medium in particular.

I've played Lights all day and never gotten close.  I even spotted for a win, doesn't matter, not enough.

 

It would be a lot easier to do 4k damage myself than rely on worthless teammates to shoot things.  I can spot 10k worth of tanks for 5 minutes, but if my team can't hit them or doesn't even try it doesn't matter.

 

You have to be high tier to do that kind of damage and then you end up sharing it all with every medium on the team and never get enough.  I did 2k in my luchs helping someone else.  Too bad there wasn't enough health on the enemy team to get the stupid thing.

 

Edit: Chain city maps is getting old fast as well.

Just another mission thats map and game dependent, I have been getting over 4k spotting easy on the way through the light missions but Im confident when I get to lt15 i will just get [edited]maps and it will take forever

Reminds me of some of the missions like "kill 2 mediums", "kill 2 TDs" or kill a heavy a tier higher.

 

All of a sudden I'm always top tier, or there's only 1 medium/td in the game. Edit: I know there's no actual conspiracy, it was just amusing to me that they were so hard to complete compared to how easy I thought they would be.

yep, took me forever to get those done, no heavies +1 tier would show up, other side would just have 1 TD while we had 6, got old pretty fast.

Im not too the lt-15 mission yet, but I had 3 games today in my light tanks with 4k+ (heck I had one that approached 6k) spotting/assistance damage. Which of course means once I get to that mission (which wont happen because I dont want to platoon) it will take forever to get it.

Exactly.My.Problem.

 

Stalingrad(x1)...Hidden Village(x3)...Ruinberg(x7)...HIMMELSDORF(x4).

 

All these maps I like, unless I am driving a light tank.

 

I'll keep my list of Garbage-For-Lights-Maps updated.

 

oohoohhhh loading in on Swamp. Wish me luck////

Not when you get Ensk and Ruinberg every time.

 

Really the biggest problem is that every map is so small and areas of contact so limited that everyone else leeches/out right steals your spots.  So your 4k damage would be more like 1-2k at best.  Very possibly zero.

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 :/

 

You are failing because the games are flooded with enemy scouts and allied scouts sucking up all your spotting damage now...lol

Scout, 2 arty on the ball. Took us about 3 games to get it done.

I'm starting to think one's only hope of doing this is to TK all the other lights and mediums on your team.

 

I've done all the other final missions with honors easily (except arty, screw that crap), but this is basically impossible between the map meta and piles of lights in every match.

and as predicted, in spite of fulfilling the conditions several times on the way through the light missions now Im at lt-15 its all city maps or 5 lights a side, this idiotic mission needs to add your own damage into the equation at least.

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.

 

You think the Serb is going to make this easy my OP brother???

I had two 4k+ damage assist games in my Chaffee last night (Both losses) and I am abso-farking-lutely terrible in light tanks.  Too bad I was still trying to get LT-1 completed ;(  That was a hard one, because primary includes winning.  Took me five games to get, even with two 4k+ damage assist games, and twi being top damage dealt in my Chaffee.  The eventual win was something like, rush into field on Malinovka, get shot, exit to garage, go play another tank, and get a notification that I had won the light tank battle, the one time I didn't do anything except get a single shot off at the enemy scout doing the same thing I was.

while i approve of the idea of rewarding good play this is just so arbitrarily down to rng and map selection that its rending the whole game unfun, you cant even consider it a side mission as its putting you into tanks and games you wouldnt be in normally. Ignore it and play as normal and you still have shitters fking up your games doing stupid things to fulfill the mission parameters. Giving this 2 thumbs down
