  1. Having played World of Tanks many years back, playing light tanks wasn't the most impressive or action-packed experience, especially when the team was spread evenly and you couldn't press a flank. That said, World of Tanks does a hell of a lot more to encourage spotting damage than World of Warships does. In World of Warships, you only get a damage counter and ribbons for spotting things. The XP reward for spotting damage is very pitiful, easily outpaced by raw damage or caps. Fair enough, caps are important to make the game easier on your team. But spotting damage should be as important as raw damage, because somebody has to do the spotting or there's nothing to shoot at! I'm sure this is an experience many of us can relate to, with entire flanks of enemy ships vanishing as the ship spotting them breaks line of sight, oftentimes mere seconds before you fire a salvo or were setting up for a torpedo drop. I would really like to see spotting damage acknowledged & rewarded more. Both in credit and XP gain, and hopefully, with some achievements for doing an outstanding job spotting the enemy team and assisting your own in sinking them. Proposed Changes Some sort of marker that displays next to an enemy ship's icon that you are spotting. Currently the only way to tell if you are spotting a ship taking damage is to watch your spotting damage counter as said ship takes hits. Increase in credit & XP gains for doing spotting damage. Doing damage is half of the fight, spotting things so that your team can do damage is the other half! It must be rewarded more generously! More ribbons (oh boy, more ribbons!). A ribbon for spotting an enemy ship that is sunk by your team, due to your spotting, would be a great place to start. Ideally there's a reward that goes with it as well. Proposed Achievements Screening - Spot & sink (or assist in the sinking of) 3 enemy ships. Lookout - Cause spotting damage equivalent to 20%* of the enemy team's total base health pool. Until the Bitter End - Keep 3 (or more) enemy ships spotted until 75% of (3 or more) enemy ships' health is gone. Eye of Cthulhu - Spot 5 or more enemy ships that are sunk by your team. You must be the one spotting them at the moment of their sinking. [Some of these achievements may need to be adjusted for CVs, or CVs can receive their own set of achievements for spotting.] *25%, maybe even 30% might be more appropriate.
