I love when people complain about "stealing" kills.  It's just a funny thing to consider your possession. It's your kill when the enemy is dead, not before. 

 

Less YOLO, more skill. 

 

The Machine is a professional kill stealer, just like every rapid fire gun tank.  Just be sure to be loaded at the right time.

 

Well, If I yolo in my Machine, ram a guy for 500 then dump 3 round into him and he has 100hp left and then a rat snipes him from half the map away and was watching the whole time and didnt help then yeah its a steal. Or if Im in my 7/1 and spend a minute or two trading with someone, knock out 95% of their health and then someone whos been watching the whole time and not helping throws a round in during my 7 sec reload then yeah thats a rat making a steal. If youre gonna steal at least help out, dont just grab the last 100hp for yourself. Heck, last night I had one tank with 56hp and another with 44hp left and some rat came in, did a ram on one and stuck a round into the other. 2 kills for 100hp total. Rat move plain and simple.

I shoot every tank I can, and prioritize low health tanks, so I can take another red gun out of the fight.  I hate wasting a high tier shell on a tank for less than 200 damage, though.  :angry:

I would apologize, but it would be insincere because I don't view things that way.  The kill is yours only when the enemy is dead.  Until then, it's just another deadly gun in the field that needs to be eliminated.  If you take all 3,000 from a Maus or only the last one, whoever retires the gun gets the credit.

Did the Stage 7 Requirements change in that were Lights always qualified. I seem to remember that Stage 7 and 8 were U.S., U.K. and Merc Mediums and Heavies only and then this weekend I notice that Lights were on on the list. Did I just over look those? Well now I have started to Grind the U.S. Light line so I can have another qualifying tank to play. I am at Tier VII now so I am hoping I can have the IX about the time I start Stage 8 (probably about 150 to 200K into Stage 8 realistically without using a bunch of boosters) and get the X while grinding Stage 8. I am not a big light tank fan though so I may just pass. We'll see.

Im on Chisel Stage 7. Spotting requirement came easily without even trying, got it at approx 200K XP. I finished the 400K+ XP last night but now Ive got the kills to requirements left. Just shy of 200 kills complete. 

 

Out of curiosity, for those who are on 7 or 8, what order did yours come in. At this rate ill be 600K XP into stage 7 before I get all the kills. Playing has become mundane now. Im just suiciding my Machine down the map to get a quick kill then jump into another tank and do the same. Rinse and repeat.

 

Oh and the amount of kill stealers out there is unreal. Trade with a tank all the way down to one shot left and some rat comes in and steals it away between shots. I easily get 2-4 rat snatches per match.

 

I got the spotting first, then the XP at which point I had about 100 kills to complete. I'm also finding the irony of criticizing 'kill stealers' whilst adopting a tactic of yoloing for one kill quite delicious ;)

Lights were always part of stage 7 and 8. If you've not got any qualifying tanks (T49, Sheridan and Tusk), in your garage I can see how you'd easily over look the fact. T49 is a lovely little run about btw.

If you think it is mundane at Stage 7 wait until you are on Stage 8. Grinding daily about 28k to 30k xp with ten eligible tanks doing the 2x.  I just added a Action X to the team last evening., so eleven eligible tanks currently. I am at 487,000 after two weeks with another two weeks to go. I  did not mind the challenging parts at stage 5 and 6, spotting damage and HC this made you think. It is now a mundane grind. Not sure if I will tackle another one of these contracts again anytime soon.

At last I finished this stupid stage 5 (that depends too much on luck and on good shooters in the team : one time I succeed with only 3 assisted shots and another I didn't succed with 11 assisted shots) and I have 104 remaining days to completed the 3 last stages. Go on guy !

I've about got Stage 7 xp done.  Got the assist a while ago.  At the current rate I'll finish the XP today with about 50 kills left to get. 

 

I agree with the premise that the kill is not yours until the target is dead.  The priority should always be the 3Gs, Get Guns Gone.  That means that sometimes you will work a tank down only to see someone get that last shot in.  It can be frustrating, but they are doing the right thing by killing the tank before it has a chance to do more damage to your team.  It plays in you favor sometimes too and you win more often when you focus on getting their guns out of the match.

I will get the kills before the xp, I think it’s because I don’t always play daily doubles and I get 4-6 kill games regularly. Probably have 30-40k xp to go when I finish it.
My best kill getters for this stage are
T57
Machine
M46 Patton
Centurion 7\1
Conqueror

Not in that order, got mastery in both the mediums within 20 games of getting them with 6-7 kill 5k+ damage games. That’s just so the Machine haters don’t jump up and down.
Quite happy with the above actually as I got mastery in all these tanks in the last week and that’s when everyone is playing them!

I called it right.  Finished the xp last night and now have 48 kills left to get.  Could have gotten the kills done first, but my entire technique throughout has been running the x2s off of the available tanks.  On typical weeknights that's all I have time to play anyway so it's x2s then done.  Still on track to get this done by Thanksgiving which is the goal.

Nice. I have 12 kills to go and 35k xp, doing all doubles now. Had a killer night with average over two kills a game

Third week of stage 8 just completed with 752,000xp should complete the contract by Saturday. This definitely seems like a chore at this point. 11 eligible tanks 6 tens and 5 nines.  Gotta thank WG for the double silver for tens this really helps the grind.

Just checking in on my fellow Chislers, seeing how its going. 

 

Currently im 320K into Stage 8. Grinding at the moment feels like the food equivalent of eating boiled potatoes with no butter for dinner every night for 2 weeks straight. Looking forward to dropping down to lower tiers while +1/-1 is on to cleanse the pallet.

I've got 100k left to finish stage 8, so I should be done in the next couple of days.

I can't wait to not play the same 14 tanks everyday!

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

Nice! Just in time for the weekend. I have 10 eligible tanks and more that I could buy but I stop after 5 or 6 tanks lately. Just cant bring myself to play the doubles on the others. 7/1, FV and The Machine are what I seem to fall back on to keep me going. My current play style seems to be about mobility.

I encourage everyone. The Chisel tank is excellent. It deserves the effort!

I'm just grinding away on stage 8 now.  Should have it by Thanksgiving.  I love British mediums so if it plays anywhere near the way they do, I'm sure I will love this tank.
