Stage 5 of the Jammer contract requires a High Caliber award.

No problem, until that’s all you’re trying to get. From innocent bumping early on, to teammates “helping” your Heavy up a hill it got kinda maddening. In 8 of 10 matches it was over within the first 30 seconds.

I had a Hellcat careen off me at the 14:58 mark. A French X medium actually got some serious air trying to jump over me I guess. They didn’t make it.

Persistence finally paid off tho and T29 came thru again.

Some of the merc requirements are a little asanine, given the pub match reality.

I haven’t gotten the spotting or the high cal yet. I’m trying to get them in the Pattons and the t54e1. I can’t get bupkiss for spotting assist because people just aren’t shooting my spots lately. I’ve had a few 4500 damage games in the tier 9s, but still not good enough for high cal.

Yeah, it's really freaking annoying. I'm getting so many games that fulfill all the other requirements, but some tanker has rammed me in the first 20 seconds. Just had a really nice game on Great Wall. Lots of damage, top of the team, but a friendly was helping my Cap King Tiger up the hill (repeatedly ramming / pushing me). I know they were being friendly and all that, so I wasn't too worried about it, but it's a smidgen annoying given the requirements for Jammer.

 

Buy past that stage? I guess that's the idea...

I got High Caliber in my first game. But after like 20 games I still cant get the spotting damage done.

 

EDIT: after 10 more games got the spotting damage done in T14 in Prokhorovka. Parked it in mid field to spot. Arty magnet for sure but I have heavy spall liner so it helps?

I will always want anything Hellcat related, and Jammer looks pretty doable. Lots of tanks to choose from to complete each stage, and plenty of time. High Caliber is a pretty achievable goal but it just seemed like it took too long to get it done.

I actually got most of my spotting in T29 as well. No optical equipment, I just managed to get hull down in a couple firefights and while others pulled back to reload I was able to sit and keep the Reds spotted. I got a few good shots in while my platoon mates did the bulk of the damage and we won those matches. Teamwork, weird concept these days.

That seems about right. Maybe another 25 to 30 battles and you get that 1 extra xp you need.:D

Now that might make me holler a couple unfriendly phrases.

Funny thing with this contract.  My platoon mate took  forever trying to get the spotting 1x your health.  We dropped down to a tier 6.  Forget which tank he got it in, but as I said, it took him awhile.  I didn't realize I made it to that stage, rolled out in the Minuteman.  Got it in my first match.  Then the High Cal. took forever, for the same reasons.  Pulled it off with the T29.  Should have had it one match.  Did about 3k in a tier 7 match, I was very careful.  Got it a few after that with less damage done, I know it's the percentage of the reds' health, shame there isn't a calculator for that.

 

Got the duelist easy.  I just ram and shoot to make sure I take damage from another tank.
