Stages 1 to 4 was very easy and was able to do it within three days. Stage 5 was a challenge because of the spotting with damage--which I was able to do thrice with the Caernarvon. I tried American and British medium and heavy tanks with no luck! I was getting frustrated and ready to quit because I was stuck for several weeks on 2. Last week I got another one... However, I was getting frustrated of the amount of time I was putting in the game and not getting the results I wanted. I was ready to give up!

 

Funny thing, yesterday I was able to complete stage 5 using tier 9 Centurion (got 1) and the rest with the mercenary tank Cruncher (got 4). Yup, took me 3 1/2 hours.

 

Stages 6-8 only took me 5 minutes to complete---go Gold Baby!

 

Cheers,

or me,I know it's a pain,but I found when you try to hard is when you can't get them, have to try and play your normal game for the high calibre medals,and obviously resist shooting at tanks for the spotting, which I found really hard, goes against the game lol.

Tier 8 medium in a tier X game. Stay ahead of the other tanks and stay hulled down. Two good TD hits and it's done. Also, only try for it on good maps. On maps where it's hard to get good scoutting dont yolo just work on your XP or HC. Atomic worked well for me.

 

 

This.

I recognize the struggle of stage 5. You have the luxury now of not having what felt like EVERYONE on the same stage, trying for the spot damage requirement. It is a struggle getting all 8 1x spot damage but it is also quite doable. Best way is to platoon up with an artillery or three. Short of that, don't rush out to get spotting damage early. Stay alive and it becomes a lot easier once your yolo lights get eliminated and you will become the spotter. Seek out empty spots on the map and don't let yourself get caught up in the requirement. If you have to take out a red, do it.

 

Staying alive is the key. Even heavies are likely to end up with 1x spotting damage if they survive late into the game. Don't worry about spotting damage when the matchmaker hands you a city map. Don't force it. They will happen and the rest of the stages are extremely straightforward. 

 

Can't recommend trying to complete the contract with one or two qualified tanks either. Too much XP earnings required, especially for the last two stages of the Chisel contract.

These contracts have everyone hooked ! So stage 5,6,7 is ridiculous:ohmy: . Especially when you can only use certain tanks. Why not complete a line of new tanks. IMO the reward certainly is not worth the effort. Just saying you could get a new tier 10 tank by putting in the same effort, why put yourself through this torture. :amazed:

I finished already 20 merc contracts and i vote NO because a tank is more valuable if not everyone in the game is able to achieve it.

I think the grind/objectives are good, I don't want a reward tank that everyone in the game is able to achieve. This shouldn't be a participation reward tank. Half the reward to me will be the rarity of it...if everyone has it, the value of the tank will seem less. There are easier objectives for less skilled players and that's great. This one is for those wanting a challenge and a grind and that is needed too.

On Stage 8 currently with 128,000 XP cleared of the 880,000 XP. I typically post 28k to 30K XP with ten eligible tanks for the daily 2X in two hours prior to leaving for work. That is all I can handle for a daily XP run. Stage 7 took 14 days to complete long pole in the tent was 280 kills. Stage 6 was also 14 Days. I believe Stage 8 will take 30 days to complete. I believe there is 116 days remaining.

No. It's not easy, but that's ok.

 

As always, if someone needs arty support on PS4, contact me.

 

Platooning makes the spotting damage plausible, in some cases easy otherwise your just really wasting a lot of time.Ugh

Mediums and heavies can earn plenty of spotting damage. Try platooning with a death star.

high caliber is the harder one for me.  looked at my stats, and I would have to play at least 80 battles, likely, to get 2 of that.  spotting in heavy tanks is very possible--take a forward position in an arty-free spot, where you can  block shots as your snipers give you spotting.  I find this is one of the best ways to get in the top 3 on your team consistently in a heavy tank, and is part of my usual playstyle.  heavies can effectively "scout" in this manner. 

problem with high caliber is: if an opponent outdoes you, because they had a nice combo of bad teammates and opportunies to cause damage, and also the relative performance of your teammates.  Plus high caliber is going to be much easier in certain tanks, like the devastating TD's especially.  heavies usually would have to reach high damage numbers by surviving a long time, which doesn't often happen if you are playing frontlines.  heavies that act as snipers are one of the great predictors of a loss, in my experience.

No. It’s balanced.
Stage 5 for Chisel is truly somewhat hard. But it’s relatively well placed and not ridiculously hard like the previous variant of Stage 5 for Sharpshooter where you were needed 2 HC’s in lights only. Doing the same in heavies (and mediums) is much easier and natural for the game play.
And spotting games are also somewhat hard when you can’t use lights. But in a medium with good concealment and view range it’s achievable. So mediums like Vengeance or Patton KR. And - yes. It’s even possible in super heavy. I’ve had such game few days ago in Super Conqueror on Prokhorovka in a battle without arty’s. Close to 5K spotting damage holding the ridge on the middle.

So for spotting - get a good concealment and view range (like Vengeance or Patton KR) and hope for good map for spotting and not too bad team. Also the best mode in this case is Encounter. The best map is Malinovka. But also El Alamein, El Haluf, Steppes, South Coast, Scorpion Pass and few others.


Don't rush me, I'm waiting for the last moment!

Third week of stage 8 just completed, hit 752,000. Hoping to complete the contract by this Saturday. 11 eligible tanks for stage 8, estimated time to complete stage 8 of  880,000xp is 26 days still on schedule.
