It’s “time”. Tomorrow, there will be an announcement or teaser. In the meantime, Sanya (@SanyaTranslate) wrote a new message un Twitter: 

“Wow! There is very little time left. Here, the last two elements. One of them is at the very end, and the other is on the sidelines, but, as it were, along with everything else. ”

Two images, a shop and a promotion? Is it the return of Black market during the final week of August?

Or... is when the Skoda appears. Who knows...  Tho I would not have used a shop icon if I was to hint at BM. Bond shop sure. It was supposed to come in 1.5, and black market was just a quick fix for it. So if it's close or far away still is anyone's guess.

I hope in the bond shop , we have been waiting for at least 6 months now.

 

..that slowness of development

 

As far as the skoda is concerned, if it is not put up for sale I think it may be the future premium tank for a potential autumn mission marathon. 

[in my opinion, it looks like a good candidate]

Well WG said there is no Marathon planned until Sept. So if it does indeed come as part of either their anniversary or Gamescom, then they will miss that window. As Gamescom ends on the 24th is it? And the twitter account hintet at 27th.

Since it was stated that it's similar but different to the Black Market, I hope it's an exchange shop where we can trade / sell / buy tanks between players (for gold or credits)

That 'tank festival' is 6th to the 30th August (have WG forgotten that August has 31 days?)

 

It is suggesting with that new symbol a new tank is coming on the 27th August. (could be Skoda T27, could be one of the other new premiums like M48A2 Raumpanzer, E75 TS, VK 75.01 K, TL-1 LPC, T54E2, )

 

Gamescom is the 20-24th August, but I am sure I read somewhere that WGfest was going to get the bigger and better events and that is in September. 

 

So does it not look like more like a Summer Advent calendar type thing there, with deals and missions maybe each day for premiums and then a new premium on the 27th which you then have 4 days to buy/get?

Well, according to Sanya (Who is a WG employee), this roadmap will span over several months and according to russian sources should end somewhere near the end of september – beginning of october, but this isn’t known fully yet.

No idea what the tickets mean

Some Czech event / special before FL Episode 7 (maybe the T27 goes on sale?)

Kindof Advent calender between next week'ish until shortly after FL Episode 8 (maybe it runs 27 days?)

Chaffee Races after FL Episode 8

No idea what the shop indicates: tank trade-in or a between-players-exchange shop end of sept/beginning october?

​Between players?  never happen.

Selling Premium tanks for credits was also something many players thought would never happen. ;)

First ticket Gamescom?

2nd ticket WG fest?

No idea what that rock thing is that leads to dog tags

Is that ranked between episodes 7 and 8? 

You'd also think if there is a Czech marathon type thing there, then the hidden under the cover premium is a different premium?

I am praying to god this dogtag event isn't going to be another brutal grind you can only do with ££ like the Christmas Skins (didnt even get close to the nation skin I was focusing on, **** RNG, **** cost of ornaments and **** return on breaking them down)

When you have the entire collection, you will get access to the Festival Shop with valuable rewards previously available only during special events
 
So quite a grindfest it will be (again) to get access to the Festival Shop... :(

Yeah let's have the guy I just killed get my customized dogtag shown to his face. I'm sure the more passionate players will love that feature.

Someone better call the toxicity department.

Or the introduction of the tool to rebuy all previously sold tanks like RU and NA have.
