Patrol Duty

 

Help your team damage at least 3 enemy vehicles by spotting them.

 

  • You must be the only player spotting the enemy vehicles at the moment they are damaged

 

 

These are the first two points from the in-game description of the award. Every award in the game has a description provided by WG as to how that award was obtained. It is different from the Scout medal because that just entails spotting. Patrol Duty is more about effective spotting.

If spelling, punctuation, etc had a win rate, you would be like a 43% player.

I know why, and though I can't speak for Antoine I'd wager he does too.

 

Seems like you're a bit of a poisonous and salty presence. I offered all the required information and the forum offers plenty of other resources that anyone of average intelligence could figure out the answer.

initial spotting is different from assisted dmg 

 

initial spotting is the first time that enemy tank position was reported to the team.

scout medal is the medal related to this.

 

assisted damage means you are the only one currently in line of sight or having had a line of sight in the last 9s  with the enemy,

and that enemy has received damage from an ally during that time.

in other words you did light an enemy otherwise invisible, and an ally caused damage during that moment.

patrol duty is the medal related to this.

You only get credit for initial spots for the scout medal. You can spot a tank again after it has been spotted by someone else and reset camo. This won’t count towards a scout medal but it will count for patrol duty. In your example, you were the first person to spot 1 tank but you spotted at least 2 others after they had been spotted and reset their camo. Once you spotted them a second time, your teammates damaged them. Hence no scout medal but still a patrol duty.

1 spot means you only spotted one tank before everyone else. Patrol duty is when you are the only one keeping enemy vehicles spotted and allowing allies to deal damage.

 

Also, I hope you've enjoyed your ban. That should teach you about not blocking others  :)
