Had it for about a week, cant say I'm to impressed. The guns not great at all, was hoping for something a little better.

Can I hazard a guess at "not enough pen"?

To be honest I don't recall, but I was fighting a M48 at a distance and only one round penetrated, the rest bounced off the front or missed completely. Increase the velocity of the rounds that's all it needs, oh and maybe one more round

Just think, the tier X Czech tank gets to use the same basic gun but with longer reload, slower rate of fire, and far less armor on the tank. 

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.

Finishing 6 lines made it worth it, the tanks OK but nothing super great. I'll play it for other contracts, but I wouldn't play it for fun.

The Machine is worth the Grind. I finished on June 1. You instantly become a target when you get spotted up, so you need to play a bit passive, otherwise people come from all over the map just to kill The Machine. It's funny, because it's not as dangerous as people make it out to be (not OP). For a X tank it's actually kind of mediocre, but not a let down like the Tusk. I ground out the Tusk as well and was (and still am) disappointed in it. With that being said, I'm not disappointed in The Machine. You should finish your grind on it and make your own decision. I like The Machine, but there are, of course, many tanks available that are better than it.

Just started stage 10.  You ought to add another poll: how many tanks a player used for stages 9/10.  I have 5 eligible tanks.  Most days I just do the minimum and get the first win bonus on each one.

 

I had 27 tanks available for the last 2 stages. Basically played each tank until x2 bonus was off and got the last 2 stages quicker than the other 8 combined. All the Kills and wins, medals, assists, was the slow part. Once you get to XP only, it flies by.

Because the Sharpshooter is the tank I really wanted, I bought out Stage 10 of The Machine so I would have plenty of time to complete that contract (even in its current "incorrect" form) - with 40 days to go and on Stage 8 of the Sharpshooter I have no regrets.

 

The Machine is good, but not the flawless pay-to-win heavyweight people have accused it of being; it does have a list of weaknesses that need to be worked with.

 

Initially I thought I would go for the Hardcase contract after completing the Sharpshooter but I think I may decide to go back to grinding the Polish, Swedish, & Italian lines instead - I kind of miss those tanks. 

 

How did you get past stage 5 on the Sharpshooter? 2 High Caliber medals in a tier VI - X light tank to me seems impossible. I'm trying but if the option was there to buy out, ( I hate to say it), I would take it on this stage. I should have looked at it before accepting the contract, because I know my light tank play is no where near good enough to get a High Caliber, let alone 2 of them.

I’ve been playing The Machine a bit and yes it’s a super Fun tank totally worth the grind. It’s way better than the Sharpshooter IMO.

 

Don’t give up the grind guys, it’s worth it :honoring:

Sorry to but in but this might help you:

 

1. Play the lowest tier light (tier 6). The higher the tier, the harder to achieve as you’re competing against higher damage tanks.

2. Stay Alive as long as possible & inflict damage all along.

3. Don’t be afraid to Spam Premium Ammo only.

4. Play your games on the server that has the lowest population. This will give you 7 vs 7 matches which increase your chances.

     For example play in the EU server during the evenings if you live in America.

 

You’re not restricted to using only the tier 6, but this tank occasionally seems top tier and with the steps above you should be able to achieve these.

 

Good luck :honoring:
