Having an issue with Stage 5 on this contract.

 

Vehicles destroyed not registering after each game.

 

Anyone else having this problem?

I just finished this a couple of days ago. Never encountered this issue

REMINDER - 5 DAYS LEFT!  Contract ends 11/30/2018

Had paced myself to finish grinding out the Longbomb this weekend.

Then spotted forum subject saying contact ends Nov 30th - minor panic since that didn't match the in game info for contract days remaining.

Relieved to report that as of Saturday there are two days left in the contract, so presumably ends Monday Dec 3rd.

If somebody at WG decided ending on a Friday was not a good idea they have my thanks!

Cheers,

YB

Finally bought my way past the arsonist stage because I'd already wasted a couple of days on it.

It can be very frustrating, lol. Good luck with the rest of it.

I looked at the updated contract.

 

Stage 6 still has the Arsonist / Demo medal requirement. 

 

Every time I've tried to do a contract with that requirement it has been nothing but pain. People carry fire extinguishers and will out the fire. Or someone will see the burning tank and put a shell into it to get the "killing" blow. Or the shot to the engine that would set the thing on fire doesn't matter because the tank didn't have enough HP left.

 

I figure not bothering to take the contract is the best thing to do in order to force a change - if no one bothers to try to get these tanks, then that's something that WGCB may pay attention to. Or maybe not. Either way, it's not worth time, frustration, or money to bother with.

most of the time i had to do it i was doing nothing but shooting the engines of enemy tanks and hoping they will light on fire and die to it, but like you said either someone killed it before fire killed them or they have a fire extinguisher. 

i am pretty sure the only reason i got it is i got lucky and lit a person on fire 2 times in a row

I think I've completed 3 tanks with this requirement. I don't think I've ever had "fun" while completing the medal requirement. For one contract, I think I got 2 arsonist medals in the stage 5 portion of the contract, but it took me 4x the amount of XP required for the stage 6 portion before I got it done. Massively not fun.

 

I guess that's the question to the community - do you consider getting the arsonist/bruiser/sniper/confederate/kill 2 tiers higher/whatever other requirement they put at stage 6 - to be any fun at all?

Beautiful Tank. Got it last night. For stage6, took a while but got it with the 10.5 on the Hetzer when a light tank charged me frontally on highway. 104k for stage8 is a long grind. Got lucky by getting the 3x XP from winter game bravo just in time for that stage. In tier 5-6 it is a beast but at tier 7 you need to play it conservatively. T7 guns will rip it open even from the front. Thank you WG

To all those who complain about difficult requirements, you might want to check step 6.
Demolition expert or arsonist...


That means that you either have to light a tank on fire AND hope for no one to steal your kill while he burns to death (if he has no extinguisher and is low enough on health) OR hit someone straight in the ammorack with enough damage to blow the whole tank up...

That's a bit tricky.

 

Yeah, this stage is the one that killed me when I tried to do this contract.

Arsonist is the most random achievement.  I have played days of games in TDs with howitzers without getting an arsonist.

 

On my current contract, I got arsonist on my 2nd game on the stage...in a 13 57.  Absolutely f@ck*ng random.

I was 99% sure I would hate the Longbomb when I unlocked it. I was right. This tank is hot garbage. Played a couple games and sold it for silver. Rubbish accuracy, slow shell velocity, narrow horizontal arc, armor that most people know how to overcome. If it had better accuracy, then maybe you could trade shots more favorably. But as it is, playing this thing is painful.
