The slapjack slower and with a second more for reload? You just killed him, I think I'm going to sell mine. I do not understand why ... he has the tiger 131 gun but with less penetration and more reloading time. It will teach me to never buy new tank (like somua or minuteman for example) because they are nerf not long time after.

Wow, I thought the Stubbs was pretty crap before the nerf. Another dust collector...

I think that Mercs should be considered Premiums in terms of balancing.  Tell me, how much gold are players spending to get the Tusk? A lot of players are spending real money to buy the Mercs.

For the majority we pay to pass the 4 or 5 step less expensive which are unfeasible for 99% of players because the requirement is too precise ...... example: for this step you must have the char xyz with the camouflage of permanent barred city and the valor insignia on the right side of the turret

I have spent the best part of 3 weeks grinding the contracts for these 3 Tanks, plus paying gold on 2 occasions  to bypass ridiculous criteria to complete a stage and ONE WEEK LATER THEY NERF THEM!

 

Why do you release Tanks that you believe need to be nerfed?

 

How about giving me my gold back?

Not for the Tusk though...

I classify myself as an average player, and I have not bought a single stage of the Tusk contract. But I will give you that I had to purchase premium time, because my XP accrual was too low to project finishing the contract before it expired.

I renounced to all the other Merc. contracts because I did not have the tanks.

I remember I paid gold to bypass a stage that required to kill a tank 2 Tiers above me. I gave up after being placed in battles where I was top or middle tier, FIVE GAMES IN A ROW!

 

There is not much fun in having NO CHANCE to achieve the criteria, right from the start of the battle!

 

The other stage I passed on was earning a Confederate Medal. I checked out my stats before the stage and worked out I earned that medal every 200 battles or so, on average!

 

I was lucky with setting a tank on fire stage. I set a PzT25 on fire with my first shot in my first game.

I was going to pay to bypass this stage, but I thought I’d try one game first.

 

WG know that most players will pay to skip at least one stage, so it’s a money earner.

 

I wouldn’t mind if they discounted the cost of skipping at stage that has 3 parts in it, if you have completed 2 of the 3.

And when finally you finally have it receives a nerf, and not a little nerf .... they kill the tank squarely!

You nerfed a tanks that needed to be buffed what kind of balancing is that. Give me my time and gold back for doing these tanks in the first place if they were prone to nerfs like this

it’s the worst little tank before this...I’m good enough to be a Unicum in it, but it is so bad. I can shoot the entire ammo inventory at a Tiger from all directions and do zero damage. Ha ha

Wargamer has there really been enough games played in these tanks to give a high enough confidence in your data?

 

How many players payed gold to skip a tough level only to have the tank nerfed so quickly after acquiring, bad decision on your part.

Is there any way to get all my gold back that I spent on the Stubs Merc Tank that I spent on camoflage, flag, and time spent doing the contract? It was a bad tank that  even tier 4 and 5's could easily take it out, but found how to play it on the maps. but, now you made it worse by lowering it's health and increasing load time.

Just eliminate this whole tech tree and add the Italian or Polish tech trees.  These tanks were/and are bull &*^( from conception........concentrate on matchmaking remedies and not made up tanks......

This has discouraged me from doing any more Merc contacts. I didn't pay to skip any stages, I expect those that did will be even less inclined to do more contacts.
