Do TE contracts still exist in the pool? I've played for quite a while since the interface update and I have never seen TE contract even once since then.
They still exist on PS4, along with T2's in Vet matchups -_-
I've always looked at the amount being paid for the contracts as a supplementary amount, not a primary source of income but that said there is a definate disparity in difficulty/frustration in achieving them for "identical" rewards.
A few frustrations I notice:
1) Any of the "Kill ships with modules" contracts. Getting the killing blow with a module explicitly can be quite difficult naturally, so I find myself trying to time things or play sub-optimally (or sniping kills) to try and achieve these. This contract is particularly frustrating on a Tac Cruiser.
2) (PS4 only I presume) TE Contracts. Just useless, they can't be completed so they must be re-rolled.
3) I suspect this may be more of an issue on PS4 then PC, but the "Kill 12 Tac Cruisers" contract is difficult to complete just due to the fact of no real players running tacticals at all. The AI will, but those kills don't count. And stemming from that:
4) AI Kills in Onslaught/TDM don't count towards contracts. I understand why they don't count in Practice matches, but they really need to count towards contracts in "normal" PvP modes where bots get auto-included.
