I trawled thru my logs this morning but the game was too far back, but am sure there was The Machine on my team on Fjords on NA server last night (11pm ish UK time) Didn't think to screenshot it at the time either. Anyone else seen one? How is this possible as you can't buy it out?

 

Admittedly it may have been a hallucination due to sleep deprivation, at least that'd account for my quality of play.

 

Edit. Found the replay. Definitely The Machine @23:45 on NA on Fjords.

You can buy it out by reaching Stage 6. Really expensive though.

You can buy it out starting at Stage 6.  Kind of pricey to do so.  They have the costs listed in the main thread for it.  There's actually quite a few people who have already bought out the contract already.  I need to finish up Stage 5, so I can use some of my higher tanks to find a Machine to destroy.  I need to kill one to get my Master Tanker badge back.   :playing:

I seen one yesterday also. Was trying to get into position to get a couple shots at it but the tier 10 lights swarmed my tier 8. The player that had it only managed 3 or 4 hundred damage though. Not sure if it was the tank or tankers fault.

Have not seen one yet but as others have said the first 5 stages can go by very quickly if you get the fire in stage 5 without too many games.  Then the rest can be gold purchase.
When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

I've seen a guy playing it a couple times, i won't put it's GTag here but, considering that the guy is better than me (nearly unicum), i can't say that the tank is that OP.

Or maybe is that forum folks are pretending that every single muppet gets it? :harp:

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

I personally couldn’t part with that kind of money! Lol! But I’m glad that some people CAN!  Those early reviews will be helpful to those on the fence about signing the Contract

Why would anyone do that? :confused:

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.

I'm sure there are people who will want to use it in the tournament this weekend.

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).

I just hope to earn it/play it before the nerf bat hits it.

It's not a matter of having the money to burn. It's being silly enough to do it on a Merc tank.

But to each their own, I should not be throwing stones as I too have spent an arm and a leg on this game.

I have plenty of money to burn but this is silly.

 

Also, I kind of want to see if I can earn it.

It's a goal.

I for 100% sure saw one on the Red team last night. Thought perhaps it could be purchased outright? Maybe WG staff or a tester? Regardless I was really surprised but we crushed the Red team and I moved on without further investigation.

 

Still working on my last 390 k XP for the Tusk contract so you won't catch me in the Machine for a while! :playing:

Saw one myself yesterday in the enemy team, but he died too quick to have any effect on the battle

You only help your team mates, because they cannot be shot at, if they are dead.

Am probably going to do the same thing as I did in the Sharpshooter, grind away and then buy out the final package for $100. I have issues with delayed gratification. :bajan:

 

Edit: on a side note, been really wanting to see one and just checking the scoreboard on recent game had one on my team! Shows how concerned I am about what tanks I'm fighting with and against. Probably good thing I didn't know, would have turned into a bit of a stalker.
