Really, I started selling lowties tanks that I've kept for sentimentality and completionist reasons. And suddenly I'm out of tanks to sell with no real cash to show for it. 
I guess I should have remembered the cap. I guess I should have started with the high tiers instead. I realise that the cap is there to protect our accounts.
But Please WG, could you remove tha cap during Black market event? Pretty please with sugar on top?
I mean, we still need to buy barracks space if we want to keep our crews in order to rebuy the tanks...

they should never give out real money exclusive things for free. this is a bad move and tells 2 things :

 

a) incompetent marketing department

b) dead game

 

edit: in before the white knights with "silver credits are not free reeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"

Should probably not have a cap set right at the start of the sale of for instance 20.000

 

They should probably increase the cap every hour or so, to ensure that not only students/unemployed people who can log into WoT during the day can get these tanks.

So for instance 2000 at 06:00, 2000 extra at 07:00 etc. or something similar, all through the day.

Clearly a NO! Today they sell the overpowered FCM td and there probably will be more OP tanks to come. we don't need more of them in the game.

It points to the fact that what they were previously selling isn't really valuable anymore. A bit like trying to sell VHS video players in 2000's, newer better things appear that the industry can make a profit on. Are we about to see a raft of new Prem tanks... perhaps t10s? I can only envisage WG giving things away basically for free, when they have some other real cash generating product in the pipeline.

 

The recent credit boost especially the piggy bank has changed the whole financial meta of the game to me, I can now play t10's constantly, use gold and not become credit poor due to the 750k weekly credit drop. I've played ranked most of the week and been spamming gold and losing quite regularly :) my credit pile hasn't been dented. It all smells of big game changes to me.

Not so desperate as to sell tanks yet, but would have liked to sell some extra modules, premium consumables and food. Not gonna happen tho, game freezes immediately when trying to sell anything.

Im fine with limit, but I wish there is some counter how many is left. If there is no limit, than we will be swarmed by those tanks

in answer to your question the answer is yes, the cap should be removed.

 

However, the more important question is should they ever do this kind of thing by offering them for credits. The answer to that is a massive no.

Perhaps bad wording by the OP, but I think his issue with the "cap" does not refer to the cap on the tanks sold by the Black market. 

 

I think OP...

- was short on credits

- decided to sell low-tier tanks

- and hit the cap of 5(?) tanks that could be sold in 24hr, and possibly still doesnt have enough credits for either Pak 36 or the 1800hrs tank.

There is, they sell 10K, and there is a countdown counter.

They might even remove credits while they are at it. :coin:

I'm glad some have a limit on them. If the AMX 13 57 or Lefh SPG comes for silver with no limit. Tier 5 and 7 MM would be rather ruined for a bit. Same if they sold the Gold 59 with no limit now. Then tier 8 MM would be amazing atm.
