I cannot understand why all mercenary tanks are not permanently available to grind. They would still have the same time constraints, the contract countdown starts when the contract is signed.

When I grind, I play more, may spend gold skipping a stage, and the more contracts, the more variety in the tanks currently in game.

So here I am wanting to get the Sharpshooter - not available. Trust me, you are not building up demand for a tank that's been out twice already. I am just plain annoyed about it.

Can anyone on here enlighten me as to any possible benefits of the current system? (WG welcome to answer too).

Many thanks.

If they have to change the requirements, they have to pull the contract so all progress would be lost. Far as i know they're changing the High Caliber Stage, not sure what to but it was recently available so will take some time.

Point taken but surely they've been around long enough now. And how long can it take to take the high caliber requirement off?

I'm waiting for the Sharpshooter contract with the correct stage requirements.  You know using tanks the Sharpshooter is made from...

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

Not sure but Machine took several months at least and that's being generous but Machine they had to rework all of it.

Agree don't understand why not keep them all available, contract timers just reset etc.

I like the high caliber requirement on the Sharpshooter. It is pretty easy IMO but makes the tank pretty rare. It is one of the best IXs in the game so it is not a bad thing that very few people have them

Well sure, it is perfectly understandable, it is marketing 101.  A few ways to increase demand for a product are creating market scarcity and/or exclusivity.  You want this product but it is currently not available to you.  Therefore you have to wait and probably keep playing in the meantime, maybe even spend some gold.

  I am going for all tech tree tanks also but I have taken a contract on one of the high tiered mercenary tanks. I don't figure on getting it but the rewards for the different stages I do finish will be helpful as I am grinding the Russian and Chinese lines off the contract. This way I grind tanks on the tech tree while getting extra rewards for doing so. Don't have enough time to finish the contract but it helps for my tech tree grinding.

Pretty obvious that time restraints put players under pressure and are more likely to make you open your wallet.

Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

To wring out gold from uninformed customers by adding a time incentive to the grinds.

Time restraint would still be there. Length of contract remains the same. Countdown starts on signing the contract.
