Thank you! This is a contract that is doable. I really appreciate you giving us something with versatility like this. I tried the tusk twice and honestly had given up on all things mercenaries related. This has me trying again!

Dang, Stage 5 is the one I was thinking I'd need to buy-out.  76.8k xp & a fire in just my AMX 13 57 will be brutal. :(

A fire it's just a mathematical probability that varies from 10 to 25%, the more shots you fire on the engine or fuel compartment, the more probabilities you have to provoke it.

Said that, an eight shot autoloader (your 13 57) will have more probabilities than a four shot autoloader (my 13 75), all you need is the required RNG blessing.

Only the final stage is 507,000 xp, apparently. The other stages require you to total a lot more than that. For some reason, Wargaming decided to make us earn more xp for Mercenary contracts than it requires to complete a TT line up to the same Tier.

 

By the way, every Tier X tank requires an amount greater than 500,000 xp, when you total everything you earn starting at Tier I and everything in between until you unlock Tier X. Ranges between 630,000 - 830,000 I think.

Always been the same. This Machine is similar to the last Sharpshooter Contract and much easier than the First Tusk Contract. Plus you have a few tanks to choose from :)

So it looks like this is one I can go for since I do not need to purchase a tank for any of the stages.

You cannot purchase contract stages right away.  You need to work your way to stage 6 to start buying the contracts.

 

Rai - Is there any way we can see a list of the gold amounts for buying out each stage of the contract please?

Having to pick mediums and heavies from two tiers five nations is much healthier for the meta and makes the final grinds not that much of a chore. I remember the 980k XP you had to grind in a Sheridan and/or an AMX 13 105 and the Machine contract seems like a cakewalk compared to that.

Then they spend A LOT of gold to bypass every stage they could, that is insane. Or, it was given to them by WG to show off in streams?
