It is good that both these contracts are out now but I think it’s kind of crappy that the sharpshooter came out after the machine. Last time you he sharpshooter was out, it came out the same time as the tusk. Last time it came out, I was working on that contract. Anyway to extend the sharpshooter contact an extra 30 days or so?

Read between the lines, you have two major contracts (well three including Tusk) at the same time. Hardly anyone can finish all of them within given timeframe, hence you need to reach for your CC and skip some stages if you want those OP fantasy scrap metal tanks. 180$ for Machine, around the same for Tusk and 100-120$ for Sharpshooter and you can get them. For a small fee of 500$ you can get all 3 of them so you can store them in your garage along with 400 other tanks you never play.

I have the Tusk and the Sharpshooter and would suggest the later is the one to go for first.

 

The Tusk while it can be fun isn't really very competitive at it's tier and the T49 with the derp gun is just as good overall.

 

The Sharpshooter has a great gun and good turret while the hull is weak and the traverse speed is poor. It's a capable support tank.

^^^ This +1 ^^^

 

Last year I was grinding Tusk and have missed Sharpshooter due that fact. Maybe it was accidentally?!?

Now I’m grinding The Machine and I’ll miss Sharpshooter due that fact... again. Maybe it’s accidentally... again?!?

So obviously I’ll have to wait for the next year when Sharpshooter will be available... again... accidentally... after the Hardcase introduction.

Sorry WG - no way to catch me this way to dump $500. Even not speaking about its silly contract requirements which were not fixed in contrary of the other contracts.

If I wanna play Sharpshooter that much - I’ll get my Centurion 7/1 for free. 


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

Getting 2 high caliber medals with a light tank for the Sharpshooter at stage 5 boggles my mind. Not many tanks to choose from and doing twice with a light? Wow!

Never really looked at the total gold to buy out the contracts, but those numbers are crazy. But I guess if there are some rich people with a lot of disposable income and they buy the contracts then good for them keeping the game going. But for me I will just grind them out.

Stage 5 is nearly impossible, seriously, earn 2 High Calibers in a light tank?  Every time I get 2k in damage the heavy's have 4k, hard to compete with that.  Only have a limited number of tanks that you can use.  Can this stage be bought out after a certain number of tries or time?  Think I have well over 75 battles in this stage and not a single HC yet.  of the 150 or so HCs I have. only 1 was earned in a light tank so it's possible, but come on.....

Don’t know what you have to run, but our XO was struggling too.  He switched to the European server when he noticed it had 500 players.  Got a 7 vs 7 was able to complete the High Caliber.

Made the switch at 9pm EDT last night. I didn't get any 7v7s... but my teams were so passive that I was able to get all the clean-up damage. 2 High Calibers in 3 games. 

 

Stage 5 in one day. My quest to earn both the Machine and Sharpshooter has jumped the final hurdle. Less than 22k XP/day.



There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

​Nice job Classy! I tried the Euro server trick too, got a lot of 7 v 7 battles, but generally bottom tier, or in the wrong tank for the map or competition. Zero HC's for me. Trying again tonight. Not sure how many days I will keep trying before bailing and starting the Machine contract. 63k xp in about a day, got the spot damage for 1x your health on second battle, now 24 hours of zero HC's. Annoying!

Ringing the bell. Sharpshooter is mine. What a beautiful tank. Might be the sharpest looking tank in the game. Definitely using clear camo.
