So, just to get this straight:

You're on Erlenberg, for some reason you find yourself in the middle of the map, and you are not spotted.
At the ridge near the north spawn a tank destroyer gets spotted, you aim, fire 2 times and pen, your team pens him several times as well and he's now a one shot kill when suddenly he goes "unspotted"...
Your reticle is still homed in on the spot you fired your last shot at and the target did not show any signs of relocating before he went dark, and you...


STOP SHOOTING ????????????

I can't say I have ever encountered that situation.  With as many games as I have played it is possible, but I certainly can't say I remember something like that happening.  Cool story though...

The idea is for you to get frustrated with a "stage" and buy gold to get past it.

 

If you add up all the Xp you need to earn in the eight stages for the tier VIII medium, it comes to 550,000. And only 6 weeks to get it done. At first I thought this could be interesting, but then I read it all more closely. We have all probably killed undetected tanks at one time or another, but you need luck to do it. The devil is in the details. This has every appearance of a gold scam.

If its the Bigtop contract you must use either Vk 3002m, Vk 3001d or vehicles that use the same engine / linked higher tiers. This includes the Rhm Skorpion which I think is the best vehicle to use since high alpha and pen=better chance of getting a kill with a lucky blindshot.

Honestly not sure if the E25 shares that engine.

 

I used the scorpion g myself.

Yes it is quite the incentive to pay to skip stages but without any premium bonuses, I can't justify paying for novelty tanks.

Do you have to use a particular tank or tank line?

I haven't started this contract so I don't know.

 

But I'd use an e25 with my full camo crew and with it's fast ROF just spam tracers until you get it.

Plaugebringer stage 5 requires to use ARL44 or higher French heavies...of which I have only the ARL.....with its amazing aim time of forever...LOL

Hehe, allright, im baffled but hey, i really hope you get that contract done.

Maybe my little story gave you some insight how you get these done.

In all honesty, i encounter these situations at least 1 in 15/20 games maybe even more.

Kill an undetected enemy? Really?  I have never done this one time in a game and I have played a lot of games.  I simply won't grind any of the contracts that has this provision.  I would like to grind both Bigtop and Plaugebringer but it will not happen as it stands nor will I grind any future tanks that require this.  

 

Dunno how strict the tank requirements are, but this sounds like something best done in arty. Counter battery.

I want the old Chaffee back.

I accomplish this entirely by accident quite often.  It usually happens when I have a long aim time on a gun I don't dare fire unaimed (like that ARL).

worked good right. Considering the other conditions for that stage too such as deal twice your HP in damage in 4 games the skorpion was kinda perfect only having 1100hp.

Artillery punishes flankers, not campers.

 

3700+Wn8. 100 tanks with 3 MoE including 29 tier X's on my main account.

​Much better than trying to use the E100 lol.

Got the undetected enemy kill medal within 2- 3 weeks of playing. 

 

Mostly happens by accident. Being forced to get 30+ of them is bad.

Done this a total of three times on the Bigtop contract. Even waited for the tank to disappear before shooting, the contract has still not been met. Is it bugged? 

 

All I did last night was try for this, shuffling between the Bat Chat 25t and AMX 50 100. My luck was dreadful and my frustrations were building, but I kept saying to myself, "One more game."

 

So, I get Highway in the 50 100, a Jagdpanther has positioned itself in the structures just north of the main ridge that leads into the town for the southern spawn. I take some shots to eat some of his HP.

 

And then, I watch him. He loses detection, gets relit, and then I watch where he gets relit. I'm deconstructing this vehicle to its very core. I'm feeling very confident. He gets detected and I wait a beat, wanting to get a shot off just before he goes undetected again, and fire... PERFECT! I track him and he is a one shot for me. He goes dark, I fire, he dies. I'm stoked!

 

I'm so pumped that the rest of the match every move I make is magic. I am the Man of the Match.

 

The Contract page comes up and... :angry:... the requirement isn't checked off. Arrrrrrrggghhh! 

 

I turned off the Xbox and went to bed. I'm gonna check the replay the next time I get on and scrutinize the kill from every angle... maybe he got relit a nanosecond before the kill. 

 

Is this not a legitimate way to fill the requirement? As Daring Affinity asks, is it bugged?

took me one game in french Tier VII arty to counter-batter the other arty. Dirty, I know, but I don't care.

commenting on a similar post of yours, but yeah... I think I'll spend some gaming sessions grinding my Tier VI Arty.
