I have just spent 5 hours of my life trying for this. I have gotten withen 500dmg so many times it pains me. I went looking for a guide when I wound up getting killed in the first 5 mins on Prokhorovka so now I'm here

given that we are potatoes, I dispute your post.

One of the challenges seems to be that every games seems to have 3-5 scouts per side.  This greatly reduces the chances of any one scout getting positioned well enough to get 4k.  I find myself rooting on the enemy to kill the other scouts on my team so that I can get more spots.

Every scout mission should have:

 

"TK every light tank on your team."

 

as part of the mission hints and tips.

indeed. However, scout platooned with 2 arty, and having the scout wait for late spotting damage once the other potato scouts are dead, might be the way to go.

To many of these missions require the perfect game to get. The missions that require killing a heavy one tier higher and kill 2 tds took me a while just because I didn't get a game to complete the mission for so long. many of these missions are not a test of skill just a random roll of rng to get you the right match and team.

Over the past 3 days I have run my scouts about 75 times with no luck (mostly city maps) trying to get this mission done. When I do get the good maps, I have to fight off 3 scouts on my team trying the same thing, or getting counter scouted by 1-3 of theirs. I've come close 4 or 5 times. But close don't get er done. Like a few others here, I had a few 4-6k spotting games on the way up the list, just can't get the map/team to finish.

I used to be able to ROUTINELY get 10K spotting dmg with a tier 10 medium on malinovka. one time I got like 13K dmg causing N00BSAIB0T to remark ' wow, you won the game.'

 

 

people hope for prok, but Malinovka is the map you want.

I personally didn't find it that hard. Take a pair of tier X SPG's with you and hope you get a decent map, or keep on rolling the same toon until you do. I got mine with my bulldog, tooned with a GW and a CGC on Sand River.

 

 

Use what you can to get the job done.

yeah, if your clickers are dialed in you can poke early in sand river and probably catch something big and slow on the move.....another good cheat is to try to track someone who is about to get raped anyway

The way these missions work atm is a joke, they need to fix that asap. People play like stupids just to accomplish an objective without giving a crapabout winning.

I passed it solo by tracking things about to get wrecked and by spotting 4 arty. Everybody loves shooting arty. Otherwise spotting is hard for me to get because the Bulldog with the auto loader is just begging me to kill instead of spot.

I tried playing my ru251...and I consider myself a decent scout....got close a few times....but I tried like at least 30-40 games in it...

 

bring out the type 64 after I got blowed up in my ru251...and on the FIRST ATTEMPT...I get it.


 

of course, if I didn't try to prove a point/hypothesis on Prok I probably could have gotten 4 k dmg spotting refarted players on 1-2 line....but science.

It is the luck of the map.....

I got mine with my Type 64 on Lakeville south.  Slid into the bush on left side of the middle road, they did not have an aggressive scout.

Spotted the mess going to the city and my team actually shot them... bingo.


 

I love Redshire north, Prohovoka (hill side for me).... and always, Malkinova and Steppes.

This has been my problem with the light missions in general. I eventually just started running the Chaffee despite the crap crew I have in it because it was fast enough to beat other scouts to the prime spots and finish the missions.

 

Running all these stupid lights is absolutely killing my stats. The fact I don't play lights much is part of the reason, but a lot of maps don't really seem designed for scouts or light tanks.

The mission isnt hard, getting a relevant map is. In 2 days of pretty dedicated light play on LT15 the best scout map I had was swamp... ONCE, Malkinova, Redshire and Prohovoka didnt show up at all. That said when I started on heavies I got open maps aplenty.

 

If it took into account your own damage, as wargaming has changed the light meta to, then good players could do it on any map, as it stands its a ridiculous testament to RNG

Finished it in less than 10 tries I think, got lucky. Active scouting surfing the ridge.

I wasn't   on the mission yet but I got 5500 spotting  damage in my Bulldog the other night and that was in a loss.  It is harder right now because there are more spotters in each in this case the other two lights got destroyed early leaving me as the only one spotting. A nice   arty hit can get you 1/3 of it in a single hit. I got the remain hidden mission in a single arty hit on a Patton .
