As you all know Wargaming have released the Tusk, a light tank with a derp gun..

I'm currently grinding the stages (stage 5), but it seems as if we will not have enough time to get this mercenary tank because of the XP needed to complete the stages..

What do you guys think ?

The contract expires on Christmas' Eve. That's 139 days from now, or around 12,000 XP per day. I think it's doable.

Signing up for it doesnt cost anything and there are decent rewards along the way.

 

12k per day means you will probably need a couple of Tier IX and Tier X tanks to maximise the daily bonuses

 

But if you have a few high tier USA/French tank to grind I'd say it's a very good opportunity to get some extra goodies

Uhh... Tier 9 and 10 tanks are REQUIRED for the ENTIRE Op, so yeah..  

 

Plus this weekend is x5 first win bonus, so even easier, and I'm sure there will be some more first win bonus ops by Christmas time

Ironically I'm mainly using the Sheridan and when it allows the Batchat AP because that's all I have in tier 10/9 american or french unless I buy back something which I won't for an op.  I sold those other tanks for a reason.  I need to get gud with the sheridan and grind the Batchat T so it's not a problem and I'm on stage 5.  But I'm not sure if I will even attempt the final stage for a tank that is not looking better with actually less benefit than what I own that I'm earning it with but the rewards along the way are nice so I got in the contract anyway.  If I get it ... probably just sell it get the money and keep the garage slot.

 

Since I have a standard acct and it has no multipliers there is little point in keeping it vs. just playing the sheridan and training up a crew that can be used other places since tier 10 play can actually cost me money at times.

 

That's the mystery on the whole merc line to me.  I got the stubbs and I never play it.  I have many better tier 5 tanks with great crews and some premiums like Crowley, Ripper, and Lycan that I won and that make me good money so I just don't get around to playing the stubbs and it sits there even though it is a half decent tank.  Why do I want to make the time investment with something so limited when I have better options.  They need to at least have money multipliers on mercs and be able to transfer crews among them IMO to make them worthwhile to invest play time.

 

I just don't see the point of the Merc line unless you are a collector and bored.  The whole concept doesn't seem well thought out.

the whole thing is designed to get you to pay for the thing...if they cared whatsoever about the effect this op has on mm they would have allowed tier 7 and 8 lights to compete for the XP as well so that tier 9 and 10 isn't just stacked with 1390s and sheridans like its going to be for a month until everyone gives up realizing they aren't going to earn the tank after all...I was ready for the grind until they sold it...not impressed...I'm not wasting another sec on it now that the cool factor of only those who earned could get is gone...open up your wallet or have fun playing your 1390 for the next 3 months straight...

You are right I've noticed I'm not the only rare Sheridan on the field any more and I was just thinking that a lot of people must have fallen in love with French lights.

The ice caps are melting.....really.
When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

Do you mean since the world is coming to an end we have more important things to do than play WOT.  While I agree I got to blow of a little steam and the environmental damage I cause with my computing is really a sunk cost so incrementally I'm not actually causing any additional damage.

 

Is that what you were trying to say?

It is pretty harsh for people with jobs, and the final step only having two tanks makes it extra harsh.

No, stage 8 is only 2 tanks. Only tier 10 at stage 8.

That's really hard. Doable only if you have a lot of time.
