Hey I'm just wondering do any of you guys have a damage counter mod for in battle , I already know about uploading my dossier ect , What I'm looking for is a little counter some where in your screen which will show how much damage you've done and each extra shot will top it up , a bit like a kill counter but better , because at the min my goal is to try to get 3k damage per battle in my T10's and I'm finding it difficult to keep track of the numbers during battle and I'm not pushed enough to upload my dossier after every battle

Does anybody have one ?

And if not devs can ye just make it ,  we already have the floaty numbers from OTM in game now , so how about the floaty numbers drift off to the top of your screen and add up ?

Also while your at it devs just throw in a few achievements for real scouting


Edit *

From the poll i gather that there's no damage counter mod :(
Pity

I would also like a counter for damage caused by your (and only your) spotting. This would be for the light scouts to brag about.

Maybe also a "forward observer" medal for when you have high  enough spotted damage.

This! Damage alone is not the indicator for MVP stuff.

Yeh that would be pretty sweet as well though i could see that being hard for the modders to create , prob not for wargaming but they'll never get around to it :(

That'd also drive the number of suicide scouts way down

The dmg counter does not apply for scouts obviously. The one who will start moking scouts for low dmg in high tier battle must be idiot.
Dmg counter ftw!Would realy clear things up. :Smile-izmena:

I would be happy enough if they put damage in the battle-end screen.

How about that guy that keeps the enemy tank track so that Arty can nail him? He does not do alot damage but is critical the succes of your team.

If you have to resolve in detracking only to help the team, it means that you are low tier in high tier battle.Noone will expect you to have high dmg count.
Be reasonable with your arguments pliz.

Yes for damage counter. Yes for having a goal- do more damage than my tank has HP.

Damage could be shown in the final score, or it could be instantly added vs spotted enemies, and added vs not spotted enemies when the enemy gets killed (just like the kill count gets added instantly when destroying a hidden unit, but other than "Player A was destroyed by Player B", messages with "Player X did x damage to player A", "Player Y did y damage to Player A", etc. would also pop up).

i don't really see the need for a damage counter, and while your at it get rid of the kill count as well, people only use it for bashing others and you know how many tanks you have killed.

i'd much rather see health status of my team mates instead so i know if other team mates need help on other flanks at a glance and such, that would be far more useful than the kill count or any damage counters and the like.

Yep, would love to see this as well as 'how much module damage inflicted' as well.

Patton yesterday kept my IS-4 tracked for about 90 seconds with repeated track hits on other stuff that could penetrate me more easily could hit me from an angle I couldn't hit them back. He played really well and it was daft that he then had nothing to show for it, particually after I managed to escape and nuked him :)
