Now they extended the contract expiry, time to go for my 4th. Merc tanks give me reasons to spend more time in the game. Better incentives than that 1000 pts earn op.

 

Stage 2 could be an issue since I no longer have any British TD or Arty. Pay gold to skip since it can't be that much for a tier 4.

@ Stage 6 Earn a Sniper medal in a battle

 

Any recommendations on what, none premium, Soviet or German light tanks are best at this? Preferably lower tiers (III-V) as it will be easier to unlock in the time given, if necessary.

For that kind of requirement, find some peashooter that is fast firing and accurate. Camp back, aim carefully and shoot away. You are going after the contract requirements as opposed to outcome of the battle, keep that in mind and you will be fine.

Stage 5 filter bug is confirmed. 

What is that check mark beside Stage 5 requirement #3?

Exactly what I had to do, got several nasty messages from teammates for doing it.

 

Now I just have to suck up the Stage 7 "Receive 43000 or more potential damage"

British TD of the mid tiers could be the trick, those AT series can bounce things. AT-2 is notorious but it will be plenty of bounces to get it done with low tier. Soviet TD not good for that purpose. The Elefant was good back in the days when there weren't as many tanks.

Hi Rai,

 

The 43,000 'potential' damage for Needle stage 7 is kind of ridiculous, especially as heavy tanks are excluded, only thin armoured lights and TD's are allowed.

 

I have to die in 43 games with a tier 8 tank (Hollenhund has 1100 HP) to get this thing? How is that not promoting bad play?

 

Please can this be adjusted. to either include heavies (as the Needle is a heavy) or half the required damage.

I relied on my AT 7 for most of this requirement. I also got an occasional good game from my LTTB and The Hidden.

PS. @Rai This is a great post for showing everybody all of the important information. Much better than when the Merc Tanks were first announced! :medal:
