Destroing enemy engine block the tank, just like tracking it, so I was wondering why damage on a veicole whose engine failed is not counted as assist damage too.

Are there some implicit imbalances that I can't figure out?

Or it's just that developers didn't think to it?

I could be wrong but I think you do get assisted damage

Unfortunately no. I had some games in wich I brought down enemy's engine with my allys shooting the foes, but in the end battle summary I had no assist damage on them. It's not so usual, but some time it happens.

Again, I could be wrong but about 2-3 days ago I had shot an IS' engine down and was rewarded asisting damage. His track wasn't broken. I'll try to find the replay and maybe that can give us some answer. Maybe, right after you broke someone's engine they repaired it?

Last time that happened I shoot a stug III. He didn't move and gey shoot by my allys. But then, may be it was a noob and repair engine without moving after... if you find that replay it could be useful! :)

should also get assist damage when you damage an ammo rack and someone else blows it up with the next shot

Nah that wasn't what caught my eye. I didn't spot that IS, I went around him and smacked him in the [edited]. Appearently his engine broke down.

What caught my eye is that at the battle result screen the assisted damage symbol said I received assisted damage through broken engine.

So there was a third option along with spotting and tracking?

you know what, I have 162 replays and I can't find which one it is. So disregard all I said if you want to. I'll take an ss next time if it happens

It does not count, just checked one of my replays.

 

Spoiler

 

You can see on the screenshot the tracks are still up and the PZ 4 H finished him off behind me, got no assist damage from it.

I'm genuinely refreshed by this thread.  Honest answers given to a fair question.   It can happen.

Yes, you get awarded assistant damage only on

spotting or detracking enemy vehicle(s).

 

Thanks for providing evidence. :great:

Maybe they did, but thought a tracked tank can be confirmed visually as "being in trouble" and therefore that can make people more prone to keep attacking it, while a tank with a damaged engine can still maintain a threatening facade.

 

Just speculating here, no clue why that doesn't happen.

Well, that's a possible option. :)
