So, I just finished stage four of the Machine's contract and moved up to stage five, where I realized that I now need to set a tank on fire to complete. Considering that this is the one real RNG based objective in this entire ten stage contract I was worried that it might prove to be extremely annoying to complete. Regardless, I took my ELC EVEN 90 out to start the contract off, and in my first engagement in my first match this happened:

Yep, in less than a minute of gameplay after starting the op I had already completed the secondary objective. Also, as if that wasn't enough, the very next game I played saw me lighting the last enemy alive on fire as well:

I have to say, this has been the easiest stage to complete yet. I just hope that I didn't steal the RNG from a bunch of you who end up taking 100 games to light a tank on fire. :trollface:

Did you use normal HE or premium rounds? I can never pen anything with HE

Normal HE... I'm too frugal. Most of the time, I'm not penning, either, but the splash can still wreck modules. Only on my arty grinds do I spend willy-nilly. :teethhappy:

+1 lol 

 

I still remember that. Quite annoying, many posts & too much gloating taking place. Lets hope these fires don’t run on random lotteries.

I don't think fire is that bad. Most tanks are unbelievably easy to cook. It's the ammo detonation one that's pure rng, you might go a few days between fires but easily go months in between ammo detonations.

MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

Setting fires was a main reason I quit doing contracts and think Mercs is terrible for gameplay. It took nearly  3 weeks to set a fire with the one tank I had for the slapjack contract.

It took like 17 days, going Yolo by the end to get 2 or 3 shots into the rear of tanks and dying to try to get fires. These ops should just be XP based, maybe throwing damage and kills in there. The other crap just ruins gameplay by making people run out to get spots, ammo racks, and fires. We wonder why there's more landslide games, but these ops are my theory.

Did it first game with my platoon mate. We both were in our bat chats and first he set a type 5 on fire then i set him on fire again after he put it out. I let him burn then his turret popped off. I did not know you could ammo rack a tank with a fire :D bad day for that type 5

I wonder if they adjusted the fire chance to make it easier. Saw two tanks get lit up in my first game tonight

I'm thinking...Yes...Seems like I have been set on fire more in the last 2 days than I have been in the last 2  months...

I tried HE with zero effect - went to normal and got it after getting 40,000 exp in around 20 games.

If arty numbers 3 or more, A shitty game will be in store.
