Hi,

The Sharpshooter Contact have a major issue with Stage 5 with the two High Caliber medal require. The reason is I have been playing for over four years with over 8000 battles in light tanks and never got a High Caliber medal once playing light tanks. This is possible to get for me and very large number of players on World of Tank. Can you please update the contact and add gold to skip that Stage 5 and can you do it soonest like today. The reason is should have been corrected before with this issue be known since the last time the contact was in play last fall 2018. Player support cannot do anything to help player on the issue and I have try hard to get it done. But they told to me post on the forum and that is very poor player support service.

Hello,

 

We are aware of the requirement for the sharpshooter contract and we will be evaluating the stages the next time it becomes live.  We are currently unable to make any changes as the contract is live.  Making changes to it now will mean the progress all players made will be completely erased.

I'd argue that having some skill based requirements such as two high caliber medals in light tanks is a good thing.  It serves as a goal set for players to reach, and by no means is a high caliber in a light tank un-reasonable.  The issue people who fail to strive towards some requirements is that they have the mentality that they are great/ its always someone else fault for their short comings.  A requirement such as this one takes a bit of skill and some in game thinking, as playing your light tank in a toxic manner and not playing well will indefinitely not yield you results.  The participation trophy mindset never motivates anyone to better themselves, whether it be in life or a mere video game.

So should I start the Hardcase contract now and give up on the Sharpshooter.  Because two HC medels sounds hard to do in a light tank.  What are the chances they will change it

Maybe you should get better at the game. Two high caliber medals shouldn't be a challenge at all.

But some actual advice on how to better yourself to get a high caliber in a light tank.  Don't yolo and get your tank destroyed within the first 2 minutes of the game.  You need to play for your team first most; and this is most critical on the larger maps where your team will be in need of a good scout.  Secondly on that note, don't play passive and try to snipe in the back, as you will struggle to pen many targets/lack the accuracy to hit them.  Provide vision for your team early on and maintain doing so throughout the battle.  You will have plenty of opportunities to deal significant damage.

It's really easy to get a high cal at tier 6. Just use the T37. Tier 6 american light. I'm grinding it at the moment. It gets top tier alot. It's really not that hard. If you can't get it done, you probably are not ready for a tier 9 tank anyway. So many people fail their way to tier 10 and just carry on failing when they get there. I think the stage requirement are a good thing. They might stop that from happening.

I'm still bummed that they aren't the appropriate nation's  vehicles. Oh well. The Rover-237 is really good for getting those High Calibers, by the way.

 

Good luck, OP!

At first I felt like the OP and gave up the first time the Sharpshooter contract came out. The second time it came out I was eager to try it again since like the OP thought surely WG made stage 5 easier. But it was the same, and at that point I had played 2,700 games in lights without a single HC medal. But after getting advice on this forum and other places I tried again using my Rover and T37 and guess what I got the two HC medals and I am currently grinding stage 8 and have about 730,000 xp with about 34,000 to go. So WG dont change the requirements it can be done as is by an average player like me. It was so gratifying to get those HC medals and it makes the Sharpshooter a rare tank that owners can take pride in and it shows their dedication and hard work paid off.

And it would kind of be a slap in the face to those that earned the two HC medals and went on and finished the last few stages to earn the tank only to find out that stage 5 was made easier or could be bypassed with gold.

I think that bigger problem is that the tanks that you have to use have nothing to do with the sharpshooter. Other contracts have logic in them , this one no. And yes if you can`t do a stage or its to much of an effort dont sign the contracat ,simple as that. It's not impossible ,a lot of (good) players have it and non of them could pay to skip that stage.

Have you considered asking someone to do it for you? It'd mean giving someone access to your account but I'm sure you wouldn't have to look too far before someone helped you out :)

Don't change it, see it as a challenge, why do all babyboomers think they can buy the whole world with their stupid money, accept, learn and grow. Btw. WG can you tell us how many people finished the sharpshooter contract till yet, would be interesting, is it really so rare???

I not only 3 marked the T37 doing this stage (did it from 88%) but I also got 4 high calibers while doing so. Yeah its challenging but definitely not impossible. Best way to do it is with the T37 because it's kind of overpowered for its tier and because the health pool is much lower its not too difficult. Just gotta pull around 1.8k-2.5k and you'll get a high caliber unless someone pulled more damage.

You're also asking for freebies from player support which kinda sucks dude. I had to do it and so do you. You just have to conserve your health until Endgame which is when you'll get most of your damage.

The problem here is not that the task is difficult or challenging, which it is, the problem is that you are asking players to use the light tanks as damage dealers rather than as force multipliers.  The contact requires light players to maneuver to do damage and ignore tasks such as spotting and flank support.  This hurts the team play by encouraging lights to compete with heavies, TDs and Arty and ignore support tasks like spotting and flanking.  If someone is out chasing damage they are probably not helping the team.  Change this requirement next cycle.
