Spotting assist is no way to farm XP. Thus why so many lights sit at the back and farm damage, vs up front and farms assist. As grinds go way faster that way. As you share to much of your XP with the damage dealer, and others that spot the same target.

 

During gamescom they were asked about it. And they did say they had plans to make spotting more rewarding in terms of XP. How and when? Who knows. As it's to low atm. As I got a 2nd or even 3rd class on all my LT-15 missions.

IIRC the xp awarded for spotting is half of what you would get for doing the actual damage, divided up amongst all those doing that spotting.

I got a rather sick Ace on my Leopard for LT-15 on the T28 HTC, and I did not do much damage that battle. But 7,5k spotting is a lot for a Tier V LT, even pre 9.18 in a full Tier VIII game.

I thought it was half the exp. the tank doing the damage got, split between all spotters. Could be wrong on that though.

Not according to the Wiki, the reward is split 50/50 between the shooter and the spotters. There are enough people complaining about low rewards for redline sniping to suggest that this is indeed the case. Besides, it makes no difference since from the spotters' point of view what I said and what you said are the same.

Probably should have put my comment better so here's the second try. As exp. is modified by relative tiers it makes a difference to the spotter's exp if the tank they are spotting for is, for example, a tier V vs. a tier VII compared to a tier VII vs. a tier V.

Still doesn't make any difference. The reward is split. The "you" in my original comment does not refer to a specific tank.

It does make a difference using the term if you did the damage youself and considering damage is modified by relative tiers. So to take another example, let's say you're spotting for a tier VII which damages another tier VII which nets 150 exp. Now if the same damage had been against a tier V they would have got say 100 exp. So the spotter would get either 75 or 50 exp. Now if the spotter was either tier V or tier VII that doesn't change but it would if they dealt the damage themselves.

 

Im really basing on that's how it works due to not getting stupidly high amounts of exp. when lights had a +4 MM.

 

Edit: Rereading the comments I'm assuming that by you you mean you as in if you were the tank doing the damage not doing the damage in the tank you're actually in.

Seems pretty logical to me, if you do half the job, you get hald the reward.

You only do the dmg => 50% of  xp

You only do the spotting => 50% of xp.

You do your own dmg and your own spotting => 100% xp.

You assume correctly.

At least this proves to all those nay sayers that LT15 missions are fine and they need to stop whining

12k spotting is monstrous and 1196 exp for that game is pathetic. Maybe it was the number of spotted tanks (needless to add, 8, a very high number).
That's the only explanation but even then it's ridiculous that you don't get an ace regardless of anything else (tier, match-up, or any other element). This one was just 2 days ago and given there were only a couple of tiers VIII and mostly tiers VII and VI, the final 7k are (maybe) easily more than 75% of all the enemy team HP.
14 tanks spotted (lol): http://wotreplays.co...centurion-59-16

I did most of my LT-15 missions in the 13 90 when it was a tier 8. Even 9K assist gave it a 3th class. As the HT's camping base that did 2 shot of damage usually got more or less the same XP as I did.
