Spotting/tracking damage is not counted in the endgame results of homefront. I haven't watched those yt videos, am I missing something or is it just the dumb design that was(not) expected.

Yeah, it seems so. Unbelievable how rushed this mode must have been made. How can a developer that has run this game for years miss that kind of oversight.

I just had a game with 1200 dmg, 10 k spotting in homefront. Of course, I was in the last place in my team, since obviously spotting isn't important or anything. GG wargaming, you've done it again.
What's the point of having any lights in this mode, I wonder.

Cannon fodder and firefighter on call to chase any tank while the campers never move away from their bush all game.

Last night a mate and i @ t1 got pulled into a t2 game (way to go WG, epic mm design as per usual!) and i ended up with over 5k spotting but only 1.5k damage done. After the inevitable loss (our sole T2 had picked a line up with 2xSU85 and camped like a 'female dog' )    i was bottom of the team despite being the only daft sod to get forwards and spot...

Spotting dmg is added to dmg done at the end so basically it counts the same as dmg done yourself. 

Ps. If you cannot pen tiger/panther frontally, maybe..maybe try coming from rear (which is pretty easy with mobile lights and appalling pen does not matter at all)

No, it doesn't.

I've had a battle yesterday with 5k damage and 5k spotting and the results only showed me the 5k damage; the spotted I did was mostly useless except for enabling my team to farm more damage for themselves.

interesting, i had a battle with 6k spot and 4k dmg and ended up with 10k (tier 1 in tier 3 match, not sure if that has any relevance to calculation). Or then i remeber wrong.

As far as I got it earlier. Assist counts for the other points, not on your rank. As in the 50 ish points you get towards the equipment. As you get a win bonus, a bonus for how many points you have left, how few tanks your team lost. And a team coordination. As in assist etc.

Those were probably from airstrikes on unspotted targets.

Nope.

 

Win a lvl 1 without losing any "cap" points = 17 points towards the improved equipment

  "    "   "  2     "           "       "       "        "      = 51      "         "          "        "              "

  "    "   "  3     "           "       "       "        "      = 115    "         "          "        "              "

 

Regardless of anything else.
