I only play a Jackson. It's a mega spotter but little armor. Every once in awhile someone will come up and sit next to me in my cover. I'm now worried about Arty lol. I always leave. Anybody else do this ?

It's worse being in a Even 90 passive scouting and a idiot TD thinks he has to sit behind you sniping.

It all depends on the exact situation.  For a regular light tank engaged in passive spotting, it's definitely poor form for somebody else to sit next to you.  As a TD, the Jackson is not an obvious spotter (and perhaps should leave spotting as a primary role to someone else).  But if you're forward and trying to spot AND you're not going to shoot, you should announce that you're spotting and ask the other guy to leave.  If you're just sniping, you should leave it alone and just have an easy exit route -- be ready to back down behind the hill or whatever.  On the other hand, if HE is a light tank in an obvious spotting location, you should leave it to him.

I was in my obj 277 on fisherman's bay and parked in a bush in the city waiting for that ambush moment, and for everyone to catch up. Some giant German heavy parks behind me and starts blind firing, so I moved, lol. He was down to 10% before he finally decided to move also, and he continued to blind fire the whole time. I would have been blasted if I stayed there.

 

But I will always leave unless it is another sniper/good camo type tank, but still may leave because having two right there sort of useless a lot of times.

Yeah, I stayed (it was an excellent position) until I got my 4 blind spots and secured LT401 mission while the STB kept drawing fire into me (lost 1/2 my health) and STB yelling at me for blocking his shots (which he would not have had except for me lighting the target). [edited].

I usually leave, if's it's a light or stealthy TD I may stick around until they fire but I just love it when I see a heavy tank pull up and try to fit into the bush, that's an instant relocation.

My spotting graph in garage says 835. Is there a better spotter in T6 ? This thing is maxed :)

The Type 64 is the best spotter in tier 6.

Racer, maybe in your particular case, things are different.  But in general, with little armor, I'd keep the Jackson back a bit, let the lights do the spotting and use your better gun to deal damage.  Mid- and late-game, the situation may change and your excellent spotting will come in handy.  But if you get spotted early, well, that armor won't help you much.

Dicker Max has the best view range and ok camo. Just slow. Probably don't want to scout with it though. I will second the vote for Type 64 as the best scout for tier 6.

There are locations that are used for spotting and then there are locations used for sniping. You should not be in a forward location with a soft TD. If you find that set up behind your team's front line then that is a good spot for TDs. I have watched to many tanks take TDs spots and cost the game because they gave up the positions they were supposed to take and the TDs could not support the line.

Actually...yes. A TD is only as good as it's position and fire lane. Lights are supposed to be the eyes of the team including some mediums. Mediums are predominantly the ones that are supposed to be the first ones in position to set up quick shots or hold certain areas (I.E. Hill on Mines). And Heavies are the ones who are supposed to be the brawlers to break up the enemy positions. Most TDs can't (especially at tier 6) do a heavy's job. Some can but most TDs will have weak armor and a fixed gun which is horrendous for brawling. And some maps do not provide great spots for the sniping TDs so location location location.

That's better than most lights, but if you not using your gun does it matter?

He didn't say his VR was 835, he said the graph in his garage.  It's based off max values available for view range and radio range.

My spotting graph in garage says 959 for my Type 64.  That's using binocs (so, when NOT moving).

 

When moving, it is 838.

 

More importantly...  VIEW RANGE is 507 moving and 551 still.
