LT15 is WAY more challenging than it should be if compared to the other STUG IV LVL15 missions. 

 

Agreed

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

 

Would be nice if the missions auto completed as you fulfilled the requirements, regardless of the order.

Just trying to get past LT-10..... too many other scouts, most maps are non-scout friendly and you can't active scout the mission.

I think the biggest problems most tankers are going to have with this mission are:

  • Lack of a high tier light tank - got to have a large HP pool on the enemy tanks to get 4k spotting damage, low tier lights just aren't going to be able to light enough potential HP with T8 or below opponents.
  • Too many scouts/battle - splitting the potential HP pool, the personal missions are bringing scout tanks out of the woodwork like cockroaches
  • Fast Medium tanks with good view ranges - Let's face it, there are some mediums that are just as effective scouts as light tanks, plus they tend to love to kill light scouts as they are easy pickings.
  • Getting the right Map game type combination- the map rotation is such that you will be lucky to play on a map where yiou even have a chance to perform a scout role.

on the T28C LT 10/Ghost mission, that took me 4 days.  as you said, conducive maps weren't in the rotation most of the week, and a LOT of yoloing suiscouts.  or I'd get on a map that might work, and the heavies on my team would say "screw it" and charge head long in on the side I was trying to passively light, die, and in effect create an over match opportunity for the enemy on that side.

 

ironically, during my attempt at LT 10, I earned what would have been LT 15 multiple times over, including the match where I finally got LT 10

It's supposed to be hard. I like the challenge. I'm on the 5K mission now.

Wish I would have saved this game till LT-15 this go around, spotted over 10k on Lakeville and would have been a fair amount more if I didn't try to shoot stuff as well... got spotted and had to duck back, a few times.

15 will be an extra large pain for me... my higher tier scouts don't have particularly good crews. My best light crew is on my Stuart, and even that doesn't have 100% camo skill.

I did 3.3k in my Chaffee in a tier 6 or 7 battle, so I'm honestly not worried about LT-15.  I think it'll be easier than some of the other LT missions (I have a Walker Bulldog for LT-15).  I agree that luck (team and map) play by far the largest role in it.  The TD mission was the same way...map is everything.

 

HT will be my hardest mission by a landslide...mainly because a T29 is the only heavy I have unlocked at tier 7 (and it's not even in my garage).  I'm not going to even bother with the arty missions.

Done.  Lucky game on Prok.  6.8k spotting.  I honestly had no problem with any of the other LT missions and ran through them pretty quick.

 

For anyone else trying, I knew about the spots on Prok and Mal for passive spotting, but I've never seen this one on Redshire before and there are a few YT videos showing LT-15 being completed here.

It's probably been said before... I've been trying to do this mission for 3 days with no luck.  Sure, I had a few games where I would get up to 3500, but....

 

There are 8-9 light tanks in every match.  It's so hard when you are competing against 3 other lights on your team, plus, you usually have a med or two that are ALSO spotting.  Then you have the 3-4 lights on the other team running around like cats with their tails on fire.  

 

I have to basically wait til I get the RIGHT map with the RIGHT team and an enemy team composed entirely of muppets...

What they should have done is make all the missions active, but then if you meet the requirements to complete more than one after a battle you choose which one you want to complete.

Oh, not always...I've been in plenty of tier 8-10 battles with a bunch of complete morons on both teams.  I'll agree with you that the average skill probably gets a little higher as you go up in tier, but you still get battles full of goofballs from time to time.

Totally unreasonable. Dependent too much on others. We answer enough for other people's mistakes as it is both here and IRL. If anything this mission should be a bit more like the heavy mission where you have to get like 4k worth of assisted/actual/spotting damage combined. Just replace the damage blocked by armor with spotting and/or assisted.

I've been stuck on the LT-15 mission for over 3 weeks now!! Can anybody give me some pointers on where to sit on what maps? This is driving me crazy!!!! I've had on match where I was at 3982 spotting damage and it was on Prokhorovka and haven't been close since. When I do get this map I cannot get to the same spot and die right away. FLM!!!!

First of all, I understand the later missions should be more difficult to complete (I even think it makes them more fun).

 

But (like what almost everybody else here has said) 5k spotting damage in Light Tanks has happened to me maybe in 5 games total out of the 19k games I have played in this game.

 

Getting this mission completed requires too many fragile aspects to work together perfectly:

 

1. There are only 3-5 maps that even provide the necessary scouting positions.

2. On those 3-5 maps you have to watch your teammates and see whether they are even in positions to shoot the tanks you spot.

3. Your braindead teammates have to actually SHOOT the targets you scout.

4. Your braindead teammates have to PENETRATE the targets you scout (NOT the same as #3, trust me)

 

I've been trying to get LT-15 mission for the T28 Concept for 2 weeks now and (though I've gotten close) haven't gotten this mission.

 

Recommendation: Include damage caused to enemy vehicles in this mission. PLEASE.
