it might be me, but one week after wows goes live( many of my xbox friends are shipping nonstop), we finally get the machine contract. i know there are quite a few people have been waiting with baited breath for the onset of "THE MACHINE" contract. just thought interesting timing, well played WGBC.

I feel like if you’re playing WOWs, this won’t bring you back.

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round

Correct, in fact the opposite!

Brought me back, Ships needs a lot of work still. The spawn points are trash, lots of glitches in game and the graphics are poor in 4K

If I liked WOWS I'd be playing that, I don't so I'll do the contract. Don't see an issue with the timing, what should they do wait till nothing is happening anywhere in the world before starting the contract?

Yup.  The only coordinations between WoTMerc and WoWSL is some ad space in their news feeds.  I’ve been playing WoWSL too, but it hasn’t changed how much WoT I play because, you know, sometimes I play other games.

 

Was there a sale on tinfoil somewhere?

While it is an interesting theory, is was just coincidence :) We really wanted to get the contract out as soon as possible due to the length of the stages :). The contract will be live for 145 days.  That’s a lot’

you guys should just turn all the contracts on permanently at this point not really a reason to keep turning them on and off for months at a time

Shouldn't there be more notice? I am sure a lot of us are caught in the middle of another contract.

I noticed that as well and found it kind of amusing.  All week on Twitch, it's people streaming WoWS.  Today, I saw more people streaming WoTC, on a weekday no less, than I have in ages.

I completely agree.  I don't understand why they're not on all the time in the first place.  It's supposed to be its own tech tree.  We don't turn off the ability to unlock other nations tech tree tanks.

Work just started up again for me and I've lost interest in the game. A merc contract won't bring me back to grinding.

WoWs needs a bit of work.  Nice to play when WoT server is down for maintenance.

I just started the Ramrod contract afther finishing the Bigtop contract.

 

I don't like the long grinds, so i will save the high tier contracts for the end.

 

Only 1 tier 6 and 2 tier 7's and I'm done with all contracts from tier 3-7.

At that point i will look at the higher tier merc's.

 

I will def not play ships ! Only a matter of time before they will introducé pirate ships (merc's) and simular shjit.

 

Please wg give them a seperate forum, we allready have enough shjit with tanks.

If they turned them on all the time, and wanted to make a change to a contract your progress would be reset....

This contract and WoWS shows up right before I go away for two weeks. Thanks Wargames! :sceptic:

I asked an EOD man how he dealt with the stress of his job. 

 

He said he didn’t have any stress. Either he was right or else it became someone else’s problem.

The spawn points are trash, mentioned many times before in alpha. It seems they want fast detection so they move up the spawns from what PC have. I have seen detection as fast as 5 seconds after start.

Come on WG, could you not please add a few more weeks for the contact. This will run in the summer time and i bet the majority of your player base will be away on vaccation for at least a week or two. 
Im going away for 5 weeks and wont be able to finish this contact in time :(
