I know that to be a good passive scout for your team you need to find a nifty spot  where you can spot lots of enemies while not getting spotted yourself, but I'm really clueless as to where those locations are. Any suggestions?

There are several "popular" spots but there are always risks. Better advice than specific spots, I think, is that, if you are in a scout, no matter where you go, once you spot the enemy, move, roll back and relocate, duck and dive, so you don't get spotted yourself.

there are no perfect passive scouting spots. or rather you should be active scout instead of passive. i find active scouting will risk less if you do it right.

 

because there are not that many bushes in Blitz Maps and the Bushes doesn't have that magic cloaking ability of that of WoT PC, i can often easily guess where the scout is hiding and slams him till he dies if he doesn't move

haha... i love taking blind shots into the popular bushes where TD likes to setup!  

 

I always make an effort to not setup behind the bushes anymore, esp in TD.

 

Bush is now infamous for telling OPFOR, 'SHOOT ME, I'm the TD camping here'!!!


 

Good luck on the battlefield!

I now actually position myself in ultra strange positions using bushes and trees. once in my Waffle Pz IV i shot a IS-7 behind a tree that has not been knocked down using a hill and the amazing gun elevation of the waffle so my waffle is basically behind the concealment in a form of tree . not spotted at 210m and enemy never knew where i shot him from.

From my limited experience many think the far back corners are the way to go so when I roll forward in my T-14  I get spotted by a toaster and massacred.
