AFAIK, assisting have a huge impact on performance, especially if you assist by spotting/tracking higher tiers. 

Usually I get the firat place in my LT if I spot +3k and deal 1k damage. 

Same goes for self spot, if you spot and fire, it'll give you more xp, especially if other damage with your spot as I mentioned (I might be wrong though).

I find assist to be somewhat sketchy a lot. I spot something which is immediately hit by players behind me (not pre aimed at a static target like a bush) and either share the assist, and get a fraction of the hit. Or sometimes nothing at all. Changing servers seems to cure it for a while. But why do I have to share the assist with team mates not nearer than me, who are unable to spot at extreme distances?

 

And why is it sixth sense goes off occasionally when totally hidden , with camo net, and there is no possibility of an enemy anywhere near at all?

Mandatory replay please!

1. Because other tanks are spotting as well, and only one is shooting and hitting without spotting himself.

 

2. Because at that point you are not totally hidden or there is an enemy nearby enough to spot you (or you shot and weren't behind at least double bushes).

 

Sounds like more an issue with your understanding of the mechanics.

If you spot a target and damage it you get no assistance at all.  Assistance is when you assist someone else.

You also don't lose any xp and credits in comparison to shooting something that someone else has spotted.

 

(Yes, that should be obvious, but... you know.)
