Even though i won't be using it this time, It's a great way to bypass an Annoying Stage (i.e. Set a Fire or a Vehicle you don't have) or to Buy the Whole thing.

 

It should be a permanent feature in the game.

The exchange rate of 15 to 1 is quite favorable.  If you have the XP to convert, this is the way to go.

The article states deadbolt and lawgiver available until April 7th, but game says these are unavailable at minute?

This is not what we got promised, this is not what we asked for.

We asked for tanks, ACTUAL PREMIUM TANKS, to be available for free Xp. Not the posibility to skip stages of your mercenary junk contracts.

And we asked for both the Tusk and the Machine, and we were promised to get them available in the same time approximately. Yet we get the Tusk again without a sign to avoid the High Tier Light Tank Swarm of Madness.

Now gets clear that WG C-B not only even doesn't care about MM balance, gameplay balance nor playerbase at all. But they play with them like some bad copies of Murazor in potence.

 

Here's my two cents.

That feature is in coming it is not ready yet as stated repeatedly. Look at this as a test & TBH it should have been on "merc" TT sooner since you can do this on reg. TT & "mercs" are not premiums but a special TT.

Tested with Plaguebringer Contract, Stage 6 costs of 18,075 FREE XP to skip or 1,205 GOLD.  It's a great addition addon, would be nice to keep it as a permanent thing. I think it would be used sometimes but not abused because of the higher XP costs. Though I prefer to save my FREE XP for skipping stock guns/packages etc.  Merc contracts I personally don't sign often because I hate being stuck to specific tanks to earn 100-300k of xp etc.
 
  • Bucket 52,500 of FREE XP to buy the tank.
  • Roundabout 55,950 of FREE XP to buy the tank.
  • Plaguebringer 129,525 of FREE XP to buy the tank.
  • Long Reach 136,650 of FREE XP to buy the tank.
  • Big Top 229,725 of FREE XP to buy the tank.
  • SlapJack 229,725 of FREE XP to buy the tank.

I heard there thinking about doing this for some Premium Tanks in the future. Probably a Tier 8 will cost 350k+ of Free XP

Thanks for having an opinion, Buddy!

 

Meanwhile, I rather like the idea of being able to get at the Tusk without spending enough time in the Sheridan to make me resent its existence 

 

Also: there's no reason to assume that this deal isn't coming for other tanks in the future, nor that you'll like it any more when it does.

I asked for a way to Skip Stages, I also asked for Free XP Premiums. The Free XP Premiums should still come hopefully but i'm glad this is in the game as it was leaning towards Buying with Gold but now we have a choice.

I see it as a test already, a test for the system AND a test for the players about how much they are ready to expend.

 

Still i'm completely agree with the fact that it should have come earlier though.

In other thread people have told that you can use td's and even mediums and heavies to go after the Tusk so, happilly, it's not a light swarm anymore (it will keep the td volume high but... people wouldn't stop to use them anyway)

 

Hope they read your last line though, and make it real in the lapse of time we got until april. However they can state any "technical problems" they want though, it's not like the first time they put something on delay for a technical problem and, eventually, a deal involving certain kind of currency happens weeks before the actual releasing of what has been delayed...

Yeah, the Buying with gold "feat." is annoying considering how much the game is insistant with it on the Merc. junk contracts. However i have stated in the latest quotes why i'm so annoyed with all this... They better don't promise nothing with a determined date and stick with their usual SOON™ in order to keep creating hype for nothing!

Does anyone have any information on what stages of the Tusk that you will be able to use the free exp on?  I have about 400,000 that I will never use.  Would love to know ahead of time before I commit to this long contract.  I would hate to get half way through and have a tank I really want become available.  I currently have every merc tank except the Tusk and the ones that have not yet been released.

This looks like a good feature some people will use.  

I'll keep mine until we see premium tanks for free XP though.

If I buy out a contract do I still get the premium time?  That's the biggest incentive for me to do merc contracts.

So is this what you were referencing when you said we would be able to purchase tanks with free xp? Just seeking a little clarification as this was a bit different from what I was anticipating.
