Can someone explain to me how spotting really works.

Because in this match I received 0 (Zero) XP

Might be a case of the inactive warning having a penalty attached.

 Some sources of XP don't work alone by themselves. If you have dealt at least 1 point of damage or shot down 1 plane you would have received XP for the spotting.

You may have lost it because of the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

That's the thing. I couldn't hit anything

Even the enemy CV couldn't do anything

That's a tough one.  You did spot for your team, so there was a contribution.  It should be awarded points.  However, I know why WG doesn't do that.  An afk ship could gain XP and get past the afk check just by spotting an enemy ship at the end of the game as they were being discovered and shot at.  Unfortunately for now, you will need to figure out a way to at least drop some torps or bombs, or perhaps shoot down an enemy plane.

So you didn't even try to attack anyone as you lost zero planes.

 

No surprise you get nothing for that game if you didnt even try

Had two drops.  Both were unsuccessful.

The game was also 7 minutes long.

I don't know if the OP is any good, but some attempt was made to impact the game.

How do you explain no planes being shot down by either team?

Neither of you launched planes, that much is obvious, otherwise some of them would have been shot down by AA from the opposing fleet.

Edit:  You can see that there is still even a 0/0 by the bomb and torp drops - if he had dropped them and missed  it would have read 0/4.  The 4 released makes no sense.

Looks like a game where a bunch of people got disconnected and somehow never logged back in.

They could have both only attacked the destroyers, as they're the most viable targets on each team. It's common for a DD to not shoot down any aircraft(if they even turn their AA on) and they can dodge ordinance easy enough. It's likely that the DDs were far enough away from their teams that only their AA was engaging the planes.

For OP, maybe the team eliminated the DDs before their bomb/torps were dropped as they released one squads worth of both torpedoes and bombs. Bombs could have lolRNG missed the target too.

The enemy CV could have been one of the first to sink too. Probably where a lot of the spotting damage came from. But the OP definitely launched planes, attempted an attack run, and moved their CV. Battle only lasted 7 min.

If neither carrier shot down any enemy aircraft, then neither carrier has any sympathy from me. 

Use your damn fighters for something other than "scouting" or "protecting yourself".

The OP most likely had a fighter load out as well since he only made use of one torpedo squad and one dive bomber squad in the entire 7 min

The truly scary thing is how bad did that other team have to be to lose that match with the enemy CV being AFK. There must have been a lot of 44% win rate scrublords on that team lol.

I was surprised we didn't have any deaths either.

I really hate that the Replay thing wasn't activated.

Most co-op games are less than 10mins long, with only 8 enemies to engage. Carriers still manage to be useful.

 I still managed to earn 0 XP in clan battles though, something you will never achieve :Smile_honoring:

Yes, and I was pointing out that the length of the game was still sufficient to have done SOMETHING.

I believe what happened is that he didn't cross the threshold for afk and he didn't score a killing anything, be it ship or fighter. The client equated it to being AFK and penalized you for any spotting scores accrued. If you had killed something say a plane, you would not be tagged as afk.

I was playing a Cossack and got only 20k damage but was still in the top 5 leader board from all the spotting I did.
