Does assisted damage count in the measure of DC/R?

 

If not, why not?

I don't know this one, but would assume because it isn't you that's doing the damage, and you'd only get half anyway, that it wouldn't count.

I think it should since you helped cause the damage by spotting or tracking. Good question and thanks for the topic.

Thanks guys, I'm wondering this because about to start properly in the wonderful world of scouts and was interested. I know they count for MOEs but thought they should in DC/R as well.

My understanding is that at this time it does not count at all toward your DCR. That is why many not all light passive scouts suffer poor DCR. I might be wrong on both counts but, I think I remember JoeDaFrogman posting on this in the past. I wish even half went to it.

Only damage that you do counts as D/CR. Assist damage is different as you are not doing the damage. We do have a suggestion ticket in to display assist damage as that is a light tanks main stat.

LOL that request is only 4 years old, Max.  Now THAT I would be surprised to see.  The assist stat? Its the holy grail of stetpetters.  Never gonna happen.

Why would assist factor into damage caused? Last I checked you can't spot a guy to death, someone needs to be doing damage.

[edited]. You still should be doing a great amount of regular damage in a LT.

Assisting is map dependant. Most of the time there are here few locations you can actually get spotting assists. People at later tiers don't need you because the average engagement is under 400.

Then those times when they do need you? You can't do much because you'll get slaughtered anyway.

So to sit here and say damage isn't important is ridiculous. This game boils down to whoever does the most damage for less.

Assists help that but you can ALWAYS commit to the match damage wise. Just look at my scout kills and remember the scout lines were the first ones I went up.

I didn't have ANY crew skills trained till the AMX 13 90. Or any on the T71.

I didn't have equipment half of the time. Maybe just a camo net.

And I was still doing very well. Except for the T21.
