Lights are the easiest tanks for WN8 farming but only if you do dmg.

For WN8 only damage counts. Basically you need to do more damage than the damage that is expected in the vehicle you play.

Initial spot also counts.

 

Get it up fast by playing good, simple as that really

Both, assisted dmg also counts for MoE.

Damage counts for gun marks too, your assistance damage (i.e. spotting, tracking) will be counted but for reasons unknown only the higher of those two values from each battle is taken into account.

It's combined.

I'm going from remembered information and that was that it's combined for campaign missions but counted separately for marks. For example ...

 

@tappman321 on reddit

Here is the formula for your effective damage for calculations. Basically more recent games matter twice as much than your older games. team damage also lowers your mark %, so don't be a jerk

EMAi = EMAi-1 + K*(DAMAGEi – EMAi-1)

• DAMAGEi = (Dealt by player in battle) + ( maximum damage by tracking or by spotting) - (team-damage caused to allies in battle)

• k = 2 / (N +1)

• N = 100

Tips:

  1. Only the greater of spotting and tracking in a game counts as the assistance damage towards your mark.
  2. Cleanup damage/spotting is the freest damage you'll ever get. So it's better to try and win a game, especially in your lights/meds. Exception is for your campy TDs.
  3. For medium tanks: Spotting damage is easier than doing damage. Running optics over vents makes a huge difference in %.

 

But whichever it is, doing more damage is the key to marks so focus on that and the rest will follow.

Oh I assumed you meant max out of personal or assist dmg. The assist thing, yes I agree with.

You can forget gunmarking a Ebr 

Better focus first on your overall winrate

He is. Congratulations, OP, on learning to play. It seems easy, but so many are too busy blaming others. I blame myself for the fact that I still can't play well enough to match your recent performance. :(

 

As for the specifics of gun marks, I find that I can 2-mark my favourite vehicles quite easily, but when I try to get near three, it really is a lottery whether you can reach it. Anything you can do to improve your chances has to be a good thing. I am ready to 3-mark the StuG III G. I have already increased my APCR load and am running an EGLD directive (not sure what it is called) to increase the aim speed now that I have noticed how many opportunities I have missed.

 

Food, BIA, various skills. This is what you are up against if you want to get the best gun marks. One is quite easy if you can play well, I feel. Two is easy enough in your favourite vehicles if you know what you are doing. Three is not easy, IMHO. Good luck.
