The suspicious activities have met their end: more tanks are now guarding our warehouse.

Damn, i was hopeful we will see the black market dude again, but with a german shep guarding... I don't think he will be able to sneak in and get us more merchandise.

"This elite task force caught the responsible, and we're now looking around for the missing items."

 

WG is going to confiscate all the sold items.

good. keep it shut. it was terribly divisive with the limited numbers of items, early offers that sold out in seconds and ridiculous pricing.

either revise the format or keep it shut please

Well, aside from selling an exclusive Pre-Order tank which was very bad for WG's image (actively lying to customers and indicative of a very low (moral) standard), this sale was actually quite nice as it gave free to play players the chance to pick up premium tanks for credits and effort, rather then money.

 

Next sale, more premiums for credits and no more vehicles which shouldn't be sold.

I know that. They get the same D-day marathon and on top of that they get this one too. When did we have the chance to do super easy missions AND choose from different premium tanks?

Since black market have no rules and wg put the price for emil 1951 tier 8 as 1200 bonds and secret tier IX  1500 bonds, obj 907 for 15000 - 20000 bonds (this is overprice) could be an option.

For an average player it would take at least two years of hard play to get 907 for 15000 bonds.

You can call this tank 907b (that means was purchased with bonds) to let competitive players with their privilege and make difference between 907 obtained in clanwars and purchased with bonds.

Many people want 907 but are not in competitive clans and also It is extremly hard to get 15000 -20000 bonds but would be another way to get 907b.

Sell other competitive tanks for bonds and put distinctive letter "b" at their name.

I know people who sold 5 Tier X tanks that are out of meta just to buy the FOCH...

 

Personally I sold like 15 tanks that I had 0 battles on (and at some point wanted to play) or bad tanks I had grinded (no need to play them ever).

 

But don't you think 25Million was a bit ... EXCESSIVE for a Tier 10, considering a regular tier 10 costs 6,1Million...

 

Also I have no idea why anyone would buy a T34B (especially one that cost 8 million per piece? lol), but the community bought 40k of them.. 40K

 

lol

 

Edit: Oh yeah, finally something where the time was perfect for Eastern Europeans. I remember having to stay up late at nights for CW's. Waking up at 7:00 - daily life. Ez first buys.

COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME......

WOT you made no effort to think about the average working man in the UK....

The deals started at 5AM GMT and again at 5PM GMT....

Those that work in the UK would no be up at 5am or be finished work by 5pm...

this was totally unfair for anyone working in the UK.....

This event reminded how WG was in the old days.Hats off to WG for this event and I truly hope this wont be the last time we see it.As a suggestion:If WG could sell the tank for gold could they offer us an alternative tank for credits or even the equivalent of credits to the amount of gold.If WG could implement this once or twice a year itl give players time to grind for credits and make it easier for those who cant afford gold.Im sorry I missed out on the Black Dog but hopefully with the next event i'l be able to get it.

You know WG, you could just let players have their own black market. Let's say someone has a rare tank like PzB2, but doesn't want to play it. He can put it on a player black market for let's say 4k gold (his own made up price). Someone might buy it, someone might not. Also selling free exp / bonds / reserves. Make this game an 'open market'TM simulator. :hiding: :trollface:

Maybe WG figured that due to Brexit the UK wouldn't want to participate in EU server activities....:trollface:
