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.

 

This is clearly done in an attempt to just to test that feature and to burn out the free xp of the players. In order to make people pay when the "problems" are solved (LOL) and they throw that bone. 

Some might say i'm not constructive enough... Too bad i'm actually a deconstructivist

The way I understand it the Free XP for Premiums Program is still on the way. The Free XP to Skip Stages Program is completely independent of that.

Thanks Sam and ronin for the input there. I was expecting to be buying some lower tier premiums for some free xp. The mercenaries hold little interest for me, so I will just keep using mine for the 1st package for new tanks and keep hoarding the rest u til such a day comes. Here’s to hoping. See you guys on the field.

So if the tier 7s cost a quarter million, how much will tusk be??? The contract made you grind enough xp to get almost any two tier 10s in the game...

 

This is great for people that are done grinding. But if the contract is still the same in its xp requirements - Y would you buy the contract out when you could grind it and use the stored xp to buy a TT 10???

Depends on what you own and the gring to finish, this should be faster at least.

Noob question: if I buy a Merc outright will it be the same cost as skipping each stage?  Ex: suppose that tank XYZ costs 2500 gold to buy outright. If stage 1 costs 250 gold to skip and I complete stage 1, will the tank now cost 2250 gold (or 33750 free XP)?

It's not a bad idea to offer Merc stage purchases via free xp. I will be doing the Tusk the old fashioned way by earning it or abandoning the contract, but cudos to WG for implementing this. Looking forward to shopping for the upcoming Premium tanks for Free XP and my understanding is that this is a test for that program.

1 Gold = 15 free XP... Eh? Converting from premiums is 1 Gold = 25 free XP.

 

So if say i want the bucket at 3,500 gold and i convert gold say with my PzVIV it will be 2,100 gold? And that way i can save myself from using my saved free xp. + saving myself 1400 gold.

no doubt it is faster to grind a bunch of premiums and elits then convert. But what I'm saying is this, the last stage alone for tusk was set a 998k I think. If you grind just that stage with the sherry or amx105 then convert you will have just earned two teir tens. If you do this for the hole contract then you could free xp from teir 1 all the way to teir 10 on two lines, and get the tusk. So you will have earned three teir tens... Or you can pay for one ten at a little bit of a discount...

It costs less gold to buy it outright than to skip the stages(if you were to skip every stage).  It’s cheaper by far just to do the Contract and maybe skip a stage or two that you find too frustrating.  Keep in mind that the cost-to-skip roughly doubles with each stage.

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

Is that even talked about ???

Any chance we can get the Sharpshooter contract back on the table so I can have something to try it out on?

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

This plan is for players who have grinded almost all Tier10 tanks and have accumulated tons of Free XP. :ohmy:

Can anyone clarify if this is the free XP for premiums feature they were referring to ? I dont want to use my saved free XP to have some exclusive tank get released in a couple weeks that I no longer have the free XP for.

I'm hoping that this feature will be made permanent in the future. It would make sense as every other tank grind in the game can be accelerated by free XPing packages (stages) or whole tanks. Make the current 15FXP to 1 gold be the special sale price and a 25-1 (standard conversion cost) be the regular amount.

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.

You can't skip the first 3 4 stages of Tusk. I'll update for other stages as I progress.

Stage 5 is ~32,000FXP

Stage 6 is 74,625FXP

The last stage was reduced by 200,400 xp and the stages where expanded to include TDs and both tier 9 and 10. Tusk contract is much easier using the x2 daily bonuses this time around.

Some of us have all/most the Mercs too :( Not much else to do if you have all the TT tanks.

Thank you for the explanation.  I was going to give the Thunder-Bucket a shot but 5 days to complete a contract is a bit short. Will it always be like this or could the contract be extended

I like this concept, however it’s flawed. It looks like it’s cheaper too purchase the merc tank with gold. Personally, earning it is a better experience.
