So I finally completed the Sharpshooter contact on the weekend and am enjoying the Tier IX "Chieftain" a lot. It was well worth the effort and the best Mercenary tank I have played thus far. 

 

What would be the next best contract one can grind for? Anything above Tier V is ok with me except for the Tusk. Any other tank recommendations from the community? Thanks.

I don’t recommend the Reach. LOL I find it to be just a worse KV-85 w 122mm.

  • Needle

If the Bulwark Contract is available I say go for that!  It’s like a Captured KV-1 with an absurd rate of fire!

The Bigtop is a lot like a baby Ravioli/Super Sherman if you’re into that type of play..... and if the Contract is live.

Pick whatever contract you already have tanks that you enjoy playing or tanks you've been meaning to rebuy or grind.

I'm not stealing kills, I'm handing out Confederate medals.

I got the Stinger, Cruncher, and Bulwark. I think it also depends if the grind will actually be relevant to the tank's components? As in the Sharpshooter has a Chieftain turret but did not require any British tank grinds. 

 

My liking are mobility, fun factor as in perhaps "accurate" derp, and actually being able to inflict damage when bottom tier. I have started off the Slapjack just because there was nothing else available but I doubt I will complete that in 33 days.

 

Thanks for the input. Wonder if the tier X Mercenary tank contract will be available this year or if when the Polish tanks come out there will be new Mercenary tanks out too.

The Sharpshooter Contract actually has the wrong tank requirements.  Once they released it they couldn’t fix it because players had already started playing it.... a LOT of players.  RaiBOT01 herself said in a post that: “Contract requirements can’t be changed while the Contract is active”.

 

If I were to guess on the Contract for The Machine I think it’ll probably release close to whenever the Tusk is over.

 

Theres still some other interesting Mercs who’s  Contracts haven’t been released yet AND we know they’re gonna keep building new ones for quite a while.   They’ve certainly got a massive pool of ideas to work from if the Suggestions thread is any indication!

There is that one with AT 2 shell and Hetzer derpy 105, called LongBomb. It could be most funny OP thing since first batch of Tigers 131. Just signed a contract.

I am getting the hang of playing the Deadbolt Tier V Heavy.  Pretty quick contract and as a bonus it has RaiBot01 (our favorite community manager) as its commander! I renamed her "Arlette el Gato", changed the language to Mexican Spanish and decorated it with camos, a sugar skull, a cat logo and a Mexican flag. The tank is a bit underpowered so is a bit slow, but the gun packs a punch and the front armor is pretty good, and at tier V can be used for all the grindy ops.

Just playing the LongBomb for kicks and currently stuck on Stage 6 - need to get the Demolition/Arsonist medal in a battle. For some reason prior to the contract I was able to get these with ease on the Deathstar - now its simply not popping. Also one-shot enemies not helping lol! Might have to buy back the Jagaroo to ammor rack T-10's from the lower plate. Sigh.

Go for the Bigtop, it's a solid tier VII, Pershing turret on a Sherman chassis.

Well, the LongBomb contract expired and I was stuck at Stage 5 so that one is aborted. No news on The Machine contract as yet?

Will probably kick off once Tusk expires.​

I know it's not popular but I like the Reach. Just finished the Long Bomb but only have 2 battles in it. 1 win, 1 loss. Jury is still out on that one.

Could not complete the Longbomb contract simply due to the fact I had atrocious games on the weekend and the slender selection of TD's to complete the 100k grind on the last stage put me off. Well, now to wait and see what shows up next after today's server restart.
