I am doing one of the directives where you have to get spotting damage with a carrier.  Its slow going in coop.  In one battle, I swear it was only counting fire damage as spotting damage.  has anyone else noticed that?  

Yes, I know its coop, but I didn't want to bring my carriers into random when I am just ok as a carrier driver.

Co-op explains your problem. With less players shooting less targets, you get way less spotting damage in Co-op. If you want that sweet Spotting Moolah from a CV, you have to play randoms. It's practically mandated for spotting.

Also, if you want help with Carriers, just go to @Femennenly's stream, and she'll give you all the answers you need.

Spotting damage doesn't count the fire ticks. Just the initial fire.

I'm fairly sure Fem doesn't play the reworked carriers.  Ahskance's stream is the place to go for reworked CVs.

Oh yeah, Fem was really good with RTS, I forgot.

I bet she's real popular on the CIS server :Smile-_tongue:

The trick to farming spotting damage.

Fly towards the flank with unspotted enemy battle fleet.

Deploy fighters 7.5-7 km from the nearest cruisers or battleships (you will see them before this). Your team farms the spotted ships for the duration of your fighter consumable.

Profit.

You should be getting about equivalent spotting damage as your average damage inflicted. Sometimes the stars align and you can get monster spotting damage.

I've got over 200k spotting damage in a tier X battle in my Lexington once...

The problem w/spotting damage is once the ships spotted by you fire their guns they become spotted by everybody else & you stop getting spotting damage...except from the very far back snipers...& that spotting damage is split between you & whoever else is spotting them after they fire.
