Black Market event:

It unfairly penalizes people who have *real* lives, which include *JOBS*. The current implementation of this 'black market' event has both a limited number of vehicles available, and a limited period of time in which they will be available for a given currency (silver/gold).

I may wish to purchase a given vehicle with either - BUT - this shop is *NOT* available via the web portal, so accessing the sale from my place of employ is not possible. And, by the time my job is done and I can access the client the vehicles will be sold out.

This is a *HUGE* penalty to myself, and others in my situation. So, do not close this ticket. When a vehicle I wish to have access to becomes available, and then is not available when I can access it's method of purchase due to [artificial] quantity limits, I will add them to this ticket. 
I have the funds, and I am willing to use the funds, but I am not willing, or able, to sit gawping at the client to jump when the limited number appear.

Thank you.

Thank you for your public service to us all.

 

from what I have seen the black market opened at 7pm on the RU servers and 6PM on EU servers.

 

Just curious I"m guessing that was in their earliest time zones?

Unless you need them, sell all those consumables today.  They might go on sale tomorrow for the Holiday Weekend.

Also, you can sell a whole stack of Emblems at once now, I had another 1M built up in there.

 

Solid advice, same for equipment as it hopefully goes on sale too.

No friends or relatives or significant others you trust to log into the client when it drops to buy a tank you want? There are millions of people who play the game with all sorts of schedules and real life responsibilities and wg can't be held accountable for not being able to appease every single one.

3) I've also been told that things we might see are: 

    a) Tiger C (an American Tier 7 heavy)

  

Knowledge is key, yet we seem to always be kept in the dark... :facepalm:

Also, on the EU server, they offered up 20,000 M 41 Black Dogs in the Black Market, they just sold out. Took them 5 hours to do it. I can guarantee they won't be offering 20,000 on the NA server so be ready guys & gals.

But you can't sell non-historical ones - I have a boat load of them that I will ever use

Going to camp it so not taking any chances of missing out and will be ok for the next few days however I work grave yard shifts at a factory which makes catching some of the tanks impossible so considering having a family member log for me lol. This does screw people who have to work afternoons and nights as well those who have to leave early so basically if you earn a living without access to the client at work you are likely to miss out :<

5:20 Eastern right now and I restarted the game to see if the Store changed, it didn't.  I HATE BEING IN THE DARK on this.  But just in case, please someone post a "This game is dead" thread so no one will be buying whatever Black Market tanks are offered :trollface:

 

SELL YOUR STUFF TODAY if you need cash (like me).  Bought 15M worth of tanks within the last 4 days - regretting the heck out of that now...

I read somewhere on here that they said on EU they said they'd have more Black Dog's in the morning.  If that's true...

 

What the heck... the guys at the pixel tank factory have to shut down for maintenance for a shift?

Pretty sure it didn't even last that long. I logged into my EU account at 1.5 hours after the sale started and it was only 4k left at that time and they were still selling fast

Well there is a limit on sequential transactions the game store server can handle so they probably are trying to spread the load so it won't crash. This is why the code redeem page is sometimes unresponsive when a popular code drops.

Same here, possibly. Pretty much an American version of the VK 45.03. Just with more armor and a little less health, and a well-armored turret. Same gun, just about the same gun stats, and so on.
