I like how every one is talking about how hard the HC requirement is they're over looking the 8 spot 1x max health. For me thats going to be the hard part. I just completed stage 4 and got 2 HCs in my centrifuge and knight yet I've only spotted 1x max health with my knight once while using it as a scout. I dont think I can get away with that in higher tier games.

The wording for stage 5 in the OP is incorrect for the spotting damage requirement. In game it reads, "Assist with spotting damage totaling at least 1x your maximum health, in 8 different battles"......Spotting damage at least 1x your HP in EIGHT different battles, in a medium or heavy Tier 8 or above? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over? The HC requirements are easy compared to this...

I had to give up my Machine contract because I'm going to be traveling for most of September, and I still have 300K left on the last stage.  :(

 

Arsonist is almost completely luck based.  I have played for days with derp guns firing HE without getting one, while I got one on my second game on this contract in my AMX 13 57!  

 

I guess I'll have to dust off my Caernarvon.

That is correct :)

The High Caliber needs to be moved down a stage so that it can be achieved with tier 6 and 7 tanks. (Cromwell's and T-29's)  

 

Tier 8 and above basically means tier 10.

WG,

 

How about extending an olive branch to those of us that will struggle with 2 high cals. 

 

Current XP for Stage 5 is 76,800. Update the criteria so that its:

[

((Spotting Damage >= Tank Health) AND (XP >= 76,800) AND (2 High Calibers))

OR

((Spotting Damage >= Tank Health) AND (XP >= 276,800))

]

 

This way those of us who cant get the 2 HC's can pass the stage by earning an extra 200K XP.

100K XP extra per medal seem like a reasonable penance for not getting the medals. Unicums can breeze the stage and the rest of us can pay for our sins via XP grind.

 

 

Hello tankers,

 

We see your comments and concerns regarding the Chisel requirements for stage 5.  It seems the feedback is 50/50 from players who say it is difficult, and other who say it is achievable.  We will look in to the performance and data of the contract.  We also wrote an evaluation ticket to review the requirements.  Please note that doing so does not mean we are committing to changing the requirements.  Also note that once a contract is live, it cannot be changed.  We will have to wait for the second run of the Chisel to apply any changes, if any.

 

Cheers and roll out!

But you could add a buyout option after the contract is started.  I seem to remember this was done with the some of the Machine contract stages.  I'd imagine that if you added a buyout on stage 5 you would stand to make quite a bit of money on just that one stage.

This is the hardest one for me as well, since all light tanks or mediums all race to spot. i also had one not register. I did 1791 assisted in the centurion 7/1 which has 1720 health and that didn't count for some reason.

Can’t add that after the contract is started.

2 high calibers are one thing but you need spotting dmg in a med or heavy tank. your own hp 8!!!!! times. that’s the hard part, not the high calibers. someone should change stage 5 description here. it’s still wrong. im at 5/8 after one day of trying. but you can believe me, it’s not easy. im an 2800 player btw.

i guess you tracked one tank. that’s also support dmg but doesn’t count. and if you track one and spot him. it counts only the tracking dmg. 0 spot then. just spot, don’t shot

THIS. How did everyone miss this? High Caliber won't be that hard IMO. The "Assist with spotting damage totaling at least 1x your max health, in 8 different battles" is going to be the hardest part. I'll give the contract a try regardless.

No doubt!  How did they come up with this one?  Not once or twice but “8 times!” What a joke.  This will be fantastic, everyone on stage 5 trying to spot at the same time.  Can’t wait to see how many uninstall over the rage.  Good job WG!

I am somewhat confused. 

 

  • Assist with spotting damage totaling at least 1x your maximum health in any number of battles

 

That‘s what‘s written in the thread starter at stage 5. Have they changed the requirements right before release? Because that sounds rather easy compared to what is being stated by the other forum members.

 

Also this requirement greatly interferes with the high calibre requirement, as for that you have to deal damage yourself.

Wow 5/8 in one day. They should have made it 20 instead of just 8.

Game integrity is in question. I saw a Chisel tank on the battlefield within 48 hours an impossible task for most players without extra help. Also stage 5 is unskippable, I think it was another bad decision for this challenge.

we played as an team of two with an clanmate. my choice for this op is the venegance so 1450 hp. he played an rheinmetall scorpion. after some fails, we are doing very well now.
its way harder if you try it alone and you can count on no one. the light tanks in your team are way faster then you. but one thing i have to admit. its alot of fun to play the game this way and accepting the challenge

Stage 5 should be for lights and meds and Not for meds and heavys! 

This Stage 5 is the hardest of all Tier 10 mercs!

Set someone on Fire is much easier as Spot same dmg as your tank  have. And Spotting is broken cause when i Spot at 1st a target and mates hit him i always get only half of Spotting... I know spotting blablabla... but if i Spot at 1st all dmg should Go to the Person what Spot it at 1st!

Tier 5 challenge on chisel is a damn joke.  I cant spot anything when other mediums and 3 light tanks get it all.  Plus having nobody to platoon with....im about ready to stop this grind

Almost every tier 10.
