let's chill abit with the personal commentary...

 

 

This ^^.

 

Comms on the first day was late. I can say this now - mods were actively chasing WG on the news article, which apparently was delayed due to waiting for translation.

 

As for email options there is an option to get on the mailing list (forgot how though), but often that gets filtered by the spam filter. I know I got a mail notification of both D-Day and black market, though that is slower than an identical news article on portal. So yeah, check the portal regularly for updates if you want to stay updated.

 

The game launcher is a great preview of news articles - just click on those headlines when you run up the game, and with D-Day marathon you would be logging in everyday anyway. So much as I am annoyed by WG's game launcher, it was a decision that has merit (helps push notifications to players).

Thanks for the clarification Neokai. Of course it would have been much less of an issue the news being late on the first day, if you could buy the tanks via the web portal instead of having to be on the tanks client. 

 

I learnt about it while sitting on a train, if I could have bought via web then I would have there and then. As it was by the time got home from work that day it was long past sold out...

Haha well I am trying very hard to sleep early, my body will not last long if I sleep too late. Luxurious or not, your heath is finite. Tanks is always there.

Well apparently not black market tanks.

 

I planned way too much for this event since I missed the blackdog on day 1.

 

Got myself a Caernarvon AX, T34-B & Foch 155,

 

and a huge revamp of my garage collections.

 

If the player is F2P, getting even only 1 tier8 premium tank from this event, is enough without sacrifice the sleeps.
If the player is a premium players like me, I will discipline myself to get myself ready for the countdown on next tank, and planned my tank selling carefully on each day in order to minimize the credit loss.


Deathstar
- Deathstar is more like overrated trophy collection to me, as I owned FV4005 until I sold it for Foch 155. It has much worse terrain resistance and turret bloom despite without a turret. 23 million is too expensive with an unstable HESH + subpar PEN.

- Current FV4005 is slightly worse than Deathstar due to abysmal reverse speed and reduced hull mobility. Gun Derpy-ness still not as obvious since 183mm calibre.

 

Blackdog

- Its shame to miss the Blackdog, but this prem lights to me is just another mortgage-able 1,300,000, and Its not longer semi-OP when there are better LTs around (LT-432, HWK30)

 

Caern AX

- Must get even if its alpha is pitiful, tier8 cool-Conqueror design, and its gold/shop price always bloated, so able one should not miss this credits offer.

 

T34B

- The PEN and alpha is still workable, and its a cooler T34 black, definitely must get by credits.

 

Foch 155

- 1 of the best from the Black Market, its my salvation after WG has killed my FV4005 (I dont like HESH derp, I am the 1150 AP shell with deadeye)

Is that alarm your wake up alarm or your time to go to bed alert?

That's what the sales value of the 155 and Death Star have been for some time. Removed TXs are a special case like that.

 

I forget what the reason was.

So you can't use them as collateral for "loans".

I don't get that... wouldn't it just fall into the normal pattern of buying a TX for 6.1 mill and selling it for 3 mil? Except that in this case you'd simply be unable to purchase them again? 

 

Wait... was it because owners were getting a free TX, so they didn't want it to be the case that you would get an extra 3 million in bonus credits? (you could still sell the current TXs but not the old ones).

To dissuade people from turning them into garage slots and credits. Like how WG devalued the cost of giveaway low-tier premiums.

 

And looking at what people were selling to get "loan"s for the Black Market, and what people were buying with their loaned credits, I'd agree with WG.

Isn't it funy that the 8M credit T34B is only worth 4.8M credits

 

With the $70 dollars needed to buy 5M credits, I can buy the T34B straight from the shop.

 

So the extra 3M cost is just extra 3 hours of credit grind

Yeah, but you're still stuck with a T34-B.

 

No matter how good the player, I will continue to always assume anyone in a T34-B is an idiot. Because they're in a T34-B

I hope you think the same for all the other premium tanks reskinned versions and not only the T34B since i think T34 is a good tank... I tend to see LOWE players as potential bots for example, but mostly because biased forum opinions...

 

LOWE-Bs anyone??

What were your thoughts on buying really rare premium tanks for credits?

Here is what I think:

#1 M41 90 GF

Nice deal for 5 million credits and you can make back the credits you used in about ~60 battles as long as you are consistent with your skills.

#2 FCM36Pak40

Impossible to obtain over the past few years, it is a tier 3 sniping monster, but at 3.5 million, the people who buy it are either TD Sealclubbers or Collectors.

 

I like it. I love it. If the thing is on sale in silver / credits, i dont care about the price amount i will buy it.

But, what if it is on sale in gold? I will never buy it.


1 clean hit to an enemy tank is enough to make my day in battle.
