Wargaming has shown it's competent enough to have an auction method in it's Black Market so why not use that for the 5AM offers so everyone has a decent chance to get it while 5PM at which time most people are home it's the usual first come first serve?


Or do we really need to wake up that early/stay awake till that time for 7 days in a row?

I would guess you are a grown up right? Sort your priorities out. No one is forcing you to wake up early. Its a videogame after all. If you want to participate then be there at the set time if not dont be there dude, its that simple.

Unless your life depends on these offers , then you are excused.

If they are gonna do these 6h auctions than I see no reason not to have them in the morning.

That would make life easier for most players that wishes to partake in these BM offers.

Sadly there is a kind of FOMO vibe going on with this Black Market. Rarely sold tanks? New tanks never sold before? Premium tanks for credits? Dirt cheap broken tanks?


You don't/can't participate you can miss out on...I don't know....Object 777 deal for a real good value and it's a good tank sold again in year 2120. Pz V/IV which I've never seen in game etc.

Is there?, most of the BM tanks in both versions have been average to pretty terrible.  Some semi-solid tier 8 premiums, some lower tier trash and some way out of the meta tier 10 tanks have been the mainstay of the BM over the two versions so far. Along with a stupidly over priced Type 59.

 

Best tank out of all the offers has been the Panzer IV/V, I don't anyone is particularly missing out on 183s, Chryslers Ks and Lansen Cs.

Not "everyone" will have a decent chance at any moment in time. Not at 5 am, and also not at 5 pm.

I've had morning shifts from 6 am to 2 pm, where I had to leave my home at 4:30 am to make it in time for work.

I've had afternoon shifts from 2 pm to 10 pm.

I've had night shifts from 10 pm to 6 am.

 

And I'm pretty sure plenty of other people will have the same.

As long as there is a "imited stock", people will get screwed over.

If all the offers were auctions, EVERYBODY could participate, nobody would complain about being "too late to the party" anymore.

 

(plus, we could cheat the system and all bid low so we don't have to spend much, but don't tell anyone)

...did I say that out loud? :trollface:

Excuse me, but what?

Most people I know work until 5pm, they then have to get on their bike, in their car, or on public transit to get home.

Over here, office workers work from 7:30am 'til 3:30pm, and some others such as car mechanics work from 7am 'til 5pm. At least the ones I know.

Why does everyone forget that the Lefh got sold for 300 gold? That's easily by far the best bang for your buck out of all the offers, even F2P players could have easily bought that.

Rasha has nothing to do this the OP's claims though.

Right, dunno which countries that would be, but I think that for most northern european ones, 9-5 to the more typical.

It would not be a terrible idea. But as you have seen, there are topics for those that complain about the 5 PM one too. So WG won't win either way.

 

 

But... then again you are complaining about an event that clearly says "we make the rules"... And right in your face as rule 5 says "don't like it, there is the door". So I doubt it will change this BM.

It's funny that you say that yet people don't acknowledge the fact that people have to do that in the mornings too, and yet they think that it would be okay to push back the times and how it wouldn't screw over anyone...

Yes, so?

Murika got to adjust their times, so why couldn't we?

Last time wasn't nearly as bad with 6am/6pm.

Not sure how many times this has to be said... It might work for you but then it won't work for other people. If the times were set 6am/6pm, would you then listen to us people who couldn't make those times? No you wouldn't. It simply is tough luck for you and honestly people should stop complaining already.
