Really WG? Even grasping music event organisers drip the tickets out so that everyone gets at least a chance.

 

Not staring at your PC at exactly 1 second past 4pm because you have a job? Well **** you, try again tomorrow., everything's sold out within a few seconds.

 

What a mean-spirited way to run an event.

 

Guess I'll keep my cash.

People will literally whine about everything.

The date and time was published 1 day ago, you had loads of time to prepare

WG gave players a premium tank for credits why are you whining?

The event timing is definitely poor, could have done with it pushed back by and hour or two so it's not the middle of the night and while people are at work.

very silly start times, at work for the afternoon event, in bed recovering so I can go to work when its the morning event

seems like a big FU to anyone who holds down a job

looks like a premium shop embargo for me now

It's first come first serve. Same as the last one, same as the next one. If you can't adapt, then that's too bad.

 

I thought people with jobs would be grown enough to understand you can't always get everything in life. Such is life, and we all know life sucks, sometimes more than other times.

 

Edit: As consolation, think of it as a way for WG to limit the amount of tanks people get. If everyone got one (for credits, means it's basically free) then nobody would buy one in the premium shop anymore... Offering an unlimited supply for a limited time is bad from a business standpoint. The other way around (the way it is now) is more profitable.

Oh no, diddums didn't get the chance to spend cash on what he wanted.

 

Guess what? Those items are not really scarce and there will be other chances to spend.

I wouldnt care at all. You cant have everything in life. I was there at the set time and therefore i got one. If you are not there you are most likely not going to get one.

Tomorrow morning i wont be there so i wont get one. Its not hard to understand.

And if the times would be moved later by one hour, other people than you wouldn't be abe to access the offers. Tough luck for you.

Thanks

 

FWIW I defo would have bought it. An opinion shared by others apparently as it sold out quickly. I'm not aware of other events that sell t8 prems for credits.
