I played a game the other day in my Rhm Pzw, and got 11 spot assists for 150 damage.???? so the average damage done per shot was 15 in a tier 10 game.?

 

Anybody else notice that spotting assists has been a little wonky since the update.?

The PBRS shows your portion of the assist. Sounds like a lot of people had eyes on the target at the time giving each a small portion. :honoring:

Not really checked, but seems OK this game game 2 spots, no 1 more after I died for 532 so think that's right.

I played a game last night in the Conqueror, in a tier 10 / 9 game and had 13 spot assists for 1375 damage.

 

It didn't feel right so I took a couple of screenshots which are on Xbox clips.

 

To be fair, the green team won easily so a few may have been finishing shots or shared damage but I thought the figure would have been higher.

All of this right here. Can sometimes be a bit disheartening to see a ton of spotting assist ribbons but minimal actual assist damage though.

 

The only assist damage that isn't potentially split between multiple people is track assist as only one person at a time can have the target "tracked".

Sometimes i don't understand how the calculation works and it feels like it's bugged. 

e.g when i spot someone for the first time and get the ribbon, then he gets hit by my friends arty but i don't get any spotting damage.  Would like to know how this is possible.

Have the spotted assist damage always been split between spotters or is this new from the update. I never noticed before. In a few battles I had 10 spotted target damage but only received a couple hundred damage. 

I also noticed if you deliver the kill shot and its only for a minimal amount of damage(I don't know what the exact amount is) of less than 50, you'll get credit for the kill, but you won't receive the yellow penetration ribbon.

Ahh thanks, I never knew we shared spotting assist with everybody who spots the red.

This is why it'd be cool to get the Damage+Assist counters so you actually know how much your getting, I had it the other day in my Sheridan, got 24 spotting ribbons came out at 1610 assistance, but I know I spotted a chieftain (got the first spotted ribbon) and he got hit for over 2000 by a T92 Less than 30 seconds after I spotted him. Came out to that spotting was a little frustrated.... (was on prok)

I also notice that you get a spotting ribbon if the tank you spot just gets tracked with 0 damage
