Being Mr Scout - which do you find most effective... the Pz1c, Luchs, or Leo? Last time i went up that line it was a tier lower pre nerf. Just wondering if any are worth checking out again.

Irritatingly I'm about a fortnight from 6th sense on most of my light crews.  Might have to try abusing view range in TDs.

You dont have to use German tanks, any patrol duty counts. Good luck though with five scouts a side.

I realise that, but ze chermans are on special and get extra credits, so there is that extra incentive.

So as a regular player of scouts and other spotty tanks how often do you reckon you get a Patrol Duty? An how many do you think you might get when a third or more of your team is made up of spotty tanks? I reckon WG could safely offer a Type 59 to anyone who gets more than 15 patrol duties in the week.

Define safely...

 

I'd certainly give that a nudge with a week of scouting. I've got 31 from 250 battles in my Pz1C (of which i've grown quite fond). Probably 100 battles if i was actually trying for them.

Suiscouts would make little difference. Patrol duty is about staying alive to get the spotting damage, not the initial spots. You're thinking scout maybe.

No I'm thinking that if even one other tank has eye's on the target then you dont get spotting credit towards a Patrol Duty. I like the idea of the rewards for things like this but I expect the popularity of it to make achieving the goal significantly more difficult. Even if all the other light tanks do suiscout it will take time for the enemy to kill them and while that is happening spots with be shared. If they are half competent scouts then you will be even worse off. Throw in shared spots with meds and TD's trying to kill the enemy's spotters and yeah I reckon anyone who plays around the common 20-30 battles per day would be lucky to get 15 PD's during the week of the event.

It's odd that i don't think i've ever bothered researching, but if two scouts have a tank lit, and it gets hit by something that does not have vision on it (arty / whatever) - do both scouts get full spotting damage? Half each? Full to whoever saw him first?

 

Anyone know?

Its in the description of Patrol Duty. You have to be the only one spotting the target.

Hmm - but wider as far as spotting damage is concerned, i wonder how they split it.

 

Either way, clearly TKing your other scouts makes sense for the mission. ;)
