Hey I have an idea lets make an event that doesn't let people who have real jobs and earn money take part in. The part of the player base that actually has money to spend and you screw us over with a limit on tanks! I go into the black market and sold out..you might as just give us middle finger there in place of the tank.

I'm in the same boat.  I work both mornings and evenings, so if they are releasing only limited numbers I won't get a chance to buy any of it.  I hope that the inventory limit tonight was solely because it was sold for credits and they don't want to give away too much "free" stuff.  If they sell something rare for gold later I would imagine they'd want to keep the inventory open through the entire 12 hour window in order to sell as much gold as possible within that time frame.  But I could be wrong.

What did you miss out on? I didn't see anything. Is there a special place for the market?

if it's any consolation, the players buying the tanks don't know how to play them anyway..hell most don't even have over 3k battles from what i have seen in my games.

The in-game store has a tab for the Black Market.  They are releasing various "rare" tanks every 12 hours in the game client only.  Tonight they sold the M41 90 GF for 5 million credits.  They had limited units though.

 

Rumor has it the Type 59 will make an appearance.  I've already got one, but I imagine if they are selling it for the ridiculous price of 15,000 gold (as I have seen speculated on other websites) they are going to want to sell as many as possible.  If they limit the inventory on premiums like that then they are just limiting how many gold packages they sell in the premium shop and losing out on profit.

Blackmarket is in-game store Tab and you can buy Premium/Rare tanks with credits.

I don't care about the Black Dog.  All my light tanks are American, French, or Russian.  But I would like a shot at some of the more rare vehicles that are listed as making an appearance.

If WG were smart they'd make the event for EVERYONE.

Shouldn't be ingame only.  8:00am most people with jobs can't access it. Same tank should be sold again at 8pm if that's the case.

I am safe for the mornings but working ten hour night shifts makes it difficult to get anything in the afternoons so it is going to be challenging to say the least. White collar workers with an desk and a laptop with internet have it easy but for everyone else with blue collar jobs are pretty screwed all in all :<

Even most white collar workers are screwed. The only way to participate is through the game client, and most companies don't want you downloading a 30GB game onto their computer.

Having a job is so 2005... :hiding:

 

Gotta get your priorities going in the right direction. Maintaining a job or playing WoT, and not necessarily in that order... :P

What sort of twatwaffle idea is this blackmarket scam? I come on here see that it is going to happen sometime tonight, get on with real life for a few hours, then come back and find that it is done and finished already. Not a good way to encourage me to participate in the game more WG!
