You might want to go to the WN8 forums, these are WoT forums...

WN8 is not an official rating. It is a fan/community made one. So this is one aspect WG cannot help, rather page the community about it.

 

The official WG rating can be found on your account & looks at alot of things, including spotting & such.

As the guys already said, WN8 is a 3rd party stat and not developed by WG. This statement though and i believe it was mentioned a week ago or something in some other topic, is not entirely true.

 

Good players in lights can do both spotting and damage. The not-so-good will not be of any help to you anyway suicide spotting and destroyed within a couple of minutes. So personally i prefer to keep that extra gun in the battle instead of just throwing away tanks.

It is, and nowadays it is managed by the XVM team.

 

WG could actually do something about this though, they could release assisted damage via their API. That way it could be included in WN8 formula, something that is not possible today.

Don't fall into the trap of WN8.

 

I've suffered for years because of it. It affects my life everyday. Little things from when i go shopping i avoid buying red products as i associate the colour with frustration, Anger, Hatred. From major things leading me to starve as a result. I only want to eat the best food for my dinners in the evening. I have yet to find a purple meal that suits me to cook. All my close friends and family have distanced themselves because i can't help but constantly insult them if they decide to wear any clothes that have orange or red on them. I have been charged with assault the few times i encounter redheads in the street. I've been banned from my local pet store for snapping a parrots neck because it had red feathers.

 

Why am i still here? Just to suffer?

 

Don't let yourself become what i have. Its not too late for you. Get help, seek treatment. Maybe even consider going to church. Or failing all those. Perhaps live in solitude on a mountain somewhere.

That's why I like to look at the WoT rating, and MoE. Assisted damage is included in them. There's a nice mod for looking at MoE stats both in the garage and during the battle, but I can't remember what it's called or where I got it.

 

That's also why I think it would be nice to add tier 4 and possibly tier 3 to the MoE. I would love to try and mark the AMX 40!

Why is it always the players that don't even play the class that have the strongest opinions on it.

 

WG over the years has been doing their best to handicap light tanks by reducing viewranges, reducing the impact of camo (corridor maps, removal of concealment and increasing view range on other classes) and giving them higher penetration drop-off at range.

 

I see very little light tanks camping in base with arty, it's mostly heavies that do this driven by dear old Steve's.

When a light tank ends up with arty in base at the end of a lost match, it's really not their fault they ended up there, it means the team wasn't doing it's job properly.

 

Now, having said that I do agree that WG needs to make spotting/assist damage available to 3rd party metrics so metrics like wn8 become more accurate and don't only focus on damage done.

Make sure to pick one of the available Purple Mountains, though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_Mountain :great:

It is so sad that WN8 ever was and still is a thing. It is such an egocentric stat in a team-based game. It is so mind-boggling that players and clans use it.

Yet you show off your WN8 in your signature.
