Well wargaming, imagine selling a tier IV tank in the tech tree for some exorbitant amount on the black market.   You got that so wrong.   Are you going to reimburse those poor souls that paid thousands in Gold for this tank that is worth almost nothing?   Obviously the tanks you are offering haven't been vetted or checked otherwise this sort of thing wouldn't happen.   Not only that but you are yet to offer any real black market fair that isn't available in your normal round of giveaways every couple of months.   The first one was good, this one is a crock.   I think you need some new blood in the company because you are screwing everything up.

 

If you truly want a black market event then you should be offering rare and valuable tanks.   For instance, E25, FV215b 183, VK72.01(K), M60, 121B, T95/FV4201 Chieftain, AE Phase 1, Char Futur 4, Obj 907A, Chieftain/T95 (Tier VIII), Bourresque, and the Emil 1951 to name a few.   Maybe the WT E100 should return......

 

Oh and no doubt one of your tame mods will give me another warning point for exercising my right to free speech.

It's honest feedback that doesn't stray into their nono zone so i can't see it getting red peened.

 

As for the BM, apart from the odd prem for credit offering it's always been mostly about the hype. I'm already preparing myself for the disappointment of the 777.2 to be a gold auction with min bid at 15k or something equally shit.

You know, if you don't think it's a bargain you can always not buy it.

15k.

According to my EU contacts, those who got refunded the 14.7k got that deducted from their accounts.

black market event doesnt feel like the "traditional" black market we go in and buy illegal stuff like female crews, crew skins, special equippment and consumables, some rare tanks, crew boook with 850k exp, illegal boosters and prem accout time... Instead they offer the same unoriginal things that they offer anywhere else too. Except that they sell some of these stuff for credits or gold and thats why people still likes blackmarket while i find it boring and feel less likely to wake up at midnight to see the offer when i am on a day shift.

Yeah but calling it the 'how we're going to milk the fools dry' doesn't have quite the same ring to it.

Sad to see how the playerbase is willing to spend money on overpriced boring stuff wg sell.. If WG wants to milk the fools even harder, why dont they at least offer something worth it and original? This time i cant even blame WG for selling crap and people actually waking up 1 am to buy it.

Lol.  As you have already seen on the forums, was discussed on Discord and on Reddit, the mistake was by WG and they have already rectified it, all those who bought the Chinese tech tree TD were given the proper (previously OP) Tier 3 Soviet TD that was meant to have been on sale.

E-25: Maybe, but unlikely.

FV183: Was sold last time, might return

VK7201: Nope

M60: In bond store, nope

121B : In Bond store, nope

T95/Chief: Campaign starts next week, no way.

AE Phase 1: Too soon after FL

Char Futur 4: Still in testing

907A: Is just a testbed and isn't intended to be sold. Its just a 907.

Chief/T95: Campaign starts next week with a new mechanic to get this tank, it won't be sold as a result.

Bouresque: Again, still in testing

Emil 1951: Too soon after FL, but in the realm of very, very unlikely.

:B ^^^ This - if in doubt, don't buy it - by not buying anything, the worse case scenario is that you are in the same position you were in before the Black Market began. Best case scenario is that you didn't waste your money!

:hiding: Why sell the good stuff when players are clearly willing to spend the mega dollars on crap? Save the good stuff for when the player-base stops buying the crap - that's good business!

So when you actually do sell something worthwhile once again you [edited] it up.   Diligently waited up at the ridiculous time of 3am and the FV215B 183 did show up, clicked on purchase and the game crashed.   Once it recovered I find that it is out of stock.   Wargaming, you have screwed the pooch on this so bad that you have lost a paying customer and player of 7 years.   You are [edited] stupid.

Be nice if the damned store opened. It's funny, "Store currently unavailable" for deathstar only. Game let me look at the stupid Tier 4.

Up at 5am every morning to check out the blackmarket. GFYS Alex today when it's a tank I actually want. I call bullshit.
