I've not been reading much of the forum on my holiday and I did not know about the Black Market. I have millions of credits, most of which I have generated in the last 18 months playing tiers that are fun. I just found out today that the SU-76i was put up for sale.

 

Tank destroyers are the ultimate stealth weapon. They take patience, brains and commitment to play. All the attributes that mature players have in abundance. Leave those damn cars to the boy racers. They are also great for busting unicum egos. I had some purple numpty ranting at me for a full 10 minutes when my SU-100M1 blasted his AMX scout.  Apparently I should be considering other peoples' enjoyment by not shooting.

 

Why then did WG release a tank destroyer for sale at the time when the mature players with jobs can't buy it?

It wasn't for credits at all.......just the paltry sum of 15,000 Gold.

So save your angst....it's cringeworthy.

If theres a multiverse of infinite realities, we might live in the only one where someone opened a thread to complain that they missed the opportunity to buy this tank at this price in gold.

The SU was up for 15 000 gold. I bought mine for 1K back in the day. And I can tell you that's all it's worth today. You pay 14K extra gold for "rare". It's not stealthy unlike the Pak40. It was an armored assault TD. But since then most tier III's got more normal pen, and now it dies in 1 to 2 shots. So it takes patience to play indeed. It was fun, but you should have gotten it 6 years ago. Not today tbh. Not for that price. So relax. You did not miss out on anything. Just farm silver and check-in at 17:00/05:00 at the in-game store. I'm willing to bet more tanks for silver will appear. As last time they had a fair few from tier III to X.

I wanted it though, and WG released it when only the feckless would be online.

15,000 gold may be a lot to you, but it's nothing to me.

Get off your high horse. I play the Marder a lot, and I play it because I like to play it. People don't have to follow the unicum herd to have fun.

This is no marder, far from it. I would say it's the mirror oposite of it. 15K gold might not be much to you. But no tier III is worth that much. You missed out on nothing trust me.

15k is ridiculous for this tank. It's not even that good. I already have it and would never spend that amount on it.

 

 

Comparison with some other seal clubbers (actually I am quite bad at low tier):

You don't have a Marder on your account. Where's your main account?

Sounds like you should take your own advice.

First, if you are not up to date with WOT news its your fault.

 

What the hell are you crying about and all these forum crybabies? All you need to play WOT nowadays is a phone with internet connection.

Just reserve 10 minutes of your time and log in with GeForce Now game streaming...

I would have paid 30,000 gold for the SU-76i. The fact some people think that's a lot says more about their failures.

The fact you would have paid 30k for a tier 4 tank says a lot about you.

 

I wouldnt even pay 5k gold for this tank let alone 15k.

 

And im sitting on 59,5k gold. I can afford it. Im just not that dumb.

Even assuming the leffe for 300 gold was an error and should have been 3000, why on earth put a tank two tiers lower up for sale at 15000 or x5 as much? Unless they meant the leffe to be 30000:trollface:

Same.

 

I get how this event may annoy people, but crying over a bad tier III is a bit... much?
