What is WG waiting to reward "Scouting dmg" in the proper way?

Although in reality the scouting thing is at long and medium range a role taken by cruisers, in this fantasy game DDs should be rewarded to lite targets for others. It also takes skills for it. You end up with 200k spotting dmg and end up at the bottom of the grid? Much like WOT scouts, y think there should be a value for doing so for DDs. 

Cheers.

Thing is...you may have initially spotted them...but once the targets fire they are directly visible to most of the ships firing at them so nobody gets any spotting damage reward for it.

Only the outlier ships (aka the ones outside the targets gun bloom range) sniping from the back award spotting damage to the rest of the team & it gets spread out between every ship that is spotting them at the time...not just the closest.

Narrator: they are.

Destroyers get more XP for spotting than any other class. 200K worth of spotting is 80K damage worth. Now, if it’s just spotting battleships, then that’s worse than spotting all the destroyers.

In general in random battles, I think the xp is rewarded fairly. Spotting should not be compensated more because it in fact is not as influential on the match outcome as %hp damage, which is what primarily affects your base xp (along with caps). Spotting is something to benefit your teammates, which is why you should prioritize doing more % damage to enemy ships, because you cannot depend on your teammates to do it for you in randoms.
