If you spot a tank that artillery then hits and stuns

 

- do you still receive the assists damage to that target ?

- or does arty get it during the stun duration ?

- or is it split amongst you ?

- or both get full assist each ?

 

Thanks

What if he uses repair kit instantly and a third player tracks him while being stunned by the artillery and spotted by you? Do all three get assisted damage if a fourth player out of viewrange damages him?

If you spotted the target first and don't brake that line of sight you get the lot and that's how I saw it anytime those instances happened to me. I often spot a target that an artillery then barely misses but knocks a track off of and another tank kills it but I seem to get all the damage assist...

...though other times I would spot a target and get damage assist until another tank shoots the track off of it and then I don't get as much damage assist perhaps, not sure now tbh lol

With the new arty stun mechanic, it claims they get assists damage for damage to the target, Is it all or a percentage if you spot it - just not sure how the system will work now.

You still get assist if you are spotting it, as it's still your spot damage. As for point 3 and 4? You already split it when arty hits it. As pr now, damage on spotting XP is shared between the spotter and the one doing the damage, as in you and arty. Tough if you are tracking it or spotting it, and arty has it stunned, and others do damage to it? It's a question that has been asked a few times on NA. They wonder if it's a 33% split now. But it seems to still be 50% of the XP form the one doing the damage based on the feedback. The battle mechanics page has not been updated about stuns yet sadly to confirm it.

One spots one tracks and one stuns, all are entitled to what, a third share of 50%? Seems like it makes these new rules kinda watered down.


 

Another scenario, a tank tracks it, arty splash stuns it but at the same time keeps it tracked. Where does the tracking damage go now, the original tracker as it wasn't repaired or the arty for keeping it tracked. The mind boggles, all these different scenarios keep me up at night.

I'm guesstimating here so take it with a pinch of salt.

 

- do you still receive the assists damage to that target ?

See point 3

 

- or does arty get it during the stun duration ?

See point 3

 

- or is it split amongst you ?

It will be split like today when 2 or more spotters see the target

 

- or both get full assist each ?

See point 3

 

A situation I find intresting is this:

You spot the target

Artillery hits, stuns and tracks the target.

A third player shoots the target (he is not spotting it)

Question: Is the split 50/50% or is it 33/67% in favor of the arty?

Well.

Like this I guess.

 

If you are only spotter for a tank that gets shot for 1k dmg. You get 1k assistance.

If you are only stunner for a tank that gets shot for 1k dmg, you get 1k assistance.

If you are only tracker for a tank that gets shot for 1k, you get 1k assistance. 

 

Tracking shares with other tracking shots.

Spot shares with other spots.

Stun shares with other stunners.

Tracking, stuns and spots all share the 50% of total damage the assist gets.

This is a fact.

 

How it shares is guesswork at the moment.

Can you get more than 1 share?

IE a scout and an arty spots a target.

The arty shoots and tracks and stuns it.

A third party shoots without spotting the target.

Do the arty get 3 of 4 shares (spot vs spot&stun&track) or just 1 of 2 shares?

No.

Tracking and spotting arr different.

 

If I spot, you track and a third guy damage. Both me and you get full value.

I would guess same as currently happens if you spot something and arty tracks it.

 

You get the assist for any damage the arty does.  You also get spotting assist for any ally who does damage from beyond his own spotting range, arty gets assist for the stun.  The big difference being that arty will be doing less damage when it hits but that may be compensated by hitting more often.

Where did you get that info? If that is correct I need to read up :).

In my understanding you can never get more than 100% from a target.

With tracking, spotting and stunning the 50% share would get very small so I can see the logic in separating the 3 types of assist.

Though that would mean that you in theory could get 200% from a target...
