Just realized the extra sale starts tonight at 2000 CEST

That's UTC +2 hours. So that is 10pm in UK.

 

What a dumb time to start a sale.

Thanks for nothing yet again Wargaming.

Well people complained last time it was during work hours, I'd have expected most people to not be at work at 10pm

I am at work at 0700 the next day, so I have to go to bed early to get up at 0530.

So yet again, I will miss out on getting this tank.

Talk about organizing a piss up in a brewery, NOT.

20:00h CEST is 19:00h UK time; your math is flawed, but don't let that stop you from screaming in rage. :sceptic:

UPDATE 30/06:
We were extremely happy to see such an overwhelming level of support for The Tank Museum in Bovington, over the weekend. The fundraiser bundles including the Tiger 131 sold out faster than expected. We understand that some of you missed the chance to participate and pick up your very own Tiger 131.

Therefore, we will be putting 400 additional Tiger 131 'Collectors Gem' packages up for sale on Wednesday, July 1 at 20:00 CEST (UTC+2).

The proceeds will still go directly to The Tank Museum.

Just a heads up they are currently on sale @: 16:09 in the UK with 341 units left.  Another messed up thing to add to the list.

Farcical comedy at its' finest; this company owes a big debt of gratitude to that guy from the Silent Hill games. :popcorn:

Just got home from work at 1730 UK time.

There are NO Tiger 131's on sale in the premium shop.

I will check again at 1900, but if they have all sold out BEFORE THE 2000 CEST TIME STATED, then I am done with this stupid game.

Just got one, and I think either the offer is broken, or unlimited, as it's still showing as 400 available, almost an hour after SmegTheNoob above bought his.

Yes I can confirm that, bought my firstone at 20:00 and gave a present one for a friend at 21:00 and the counter still said 400 left.

But might be a good gesture from WG after all the rage about the charity sale and its limitation

... or a total FU :coin:. But either way this is good WG!!

Keep it unlimited for the the next few days to show you really care about the comments of your customers  and show you really want to help the museum.

Now this charity thing can mak a difference for the Bovington museum !!:B

 

Good job WG!

 

Edit: AND this time I really mean it!! :medal:

OK now we know it was anot intended to be "unlimited" it was a mistake from WG personel I guess and they "solved"it.

Another friend asked me to buy one for him while he was not able to come online. i logged in again and the webpage was gone

So I guess WG dont like to give away to much profit after all.:izmena:

So, I just tried to buy one of these after seeing a splash page advertising it as back on sale, and,

after following the link, it is NOT back on sale apparently as it says item unavailable to me!

So if it's not available WG, REMOVE THE LINK?
