OP is overreacting on this. This happened in mass on RU server and WG came up officially saying they work on fixing it. 

Calling it a scam is just untrue. Saying that "this is not the first time", I suspect of being untruthful too.

 

I had a premium take a while to show up after I bought it once. Sent in a ticket but the next time I logged in(next morning) it was there before I got a reply. Stuff happens but people like to go off the deep end.

Why do you offend me?  As long as you are an adult you have been in such situation many times in your life. 

That's funny, I'm an adult but this has never happened to me . Why do you assume that this happens to everyone  ?

Maybe you are cursed.

You are ruining our fun. We are hoping he really got ripped off or this wouldn't be a genuine Black Market.

OP do you expect messing around in the Black Market. Sometimes there is always tainted goods in the BM as there are no rules. You were warned ahead of time about there being no rules. You expect customer service to help you when you bought tanks from the black market and not the proper premium shop.

 

Ouch!!!!

 

But ... but ... it's a GAME, not a SIMULATION!!!!   :amazed:

How about just posting this drivel on the support page. IF you aren't lying then they will fix it.

 

Hey bonehead.:facepalm:  It's a public service announcement and I appreciate it.  OP, thank you.:)

A Federal Judge will block it.

 

I know it's crazy how that whole separation of powers works. It's almost like we have a rule of law and not a king. Crazy. I mean who can one be an autocrat with all these rules and laws.

Rest easy. The issues that the OP was/is having with his FV 183 purchase is affecting a lot of players on the EU forums who have purchased the recently released Caernarvon AX. There are multiple threads today with many posting that they were deducted the credits from their accounts but no tank added to their garage. As I mentioned to the OP twice, screen shot your purchase confirmation and then open your information center, bottom right of your screen, and screenshot the notifications their of the purchase. Then if you are having the issues open a ticket and attach the screen shots to it when submitting.

 

Link to one of the threads on EU:  http://forum.worldof...__fromsearch__1

 

Good luck to all.

UPDATE:

I got response from support. Looks like there are a lot of people affected by this issue and WG is working to solve it across all their game servers.

This happened on EU as well.
Eventually the tank(s) appeared, when the system stopped puking all over itself or someone replaced the worn out hamsters.

Screen shot the little purchase blurb in your message center.  If it doesn't appear in a few hours, try a ticket with that screenshot (showing the actual account name that purchased it).

While often times rather clunky and slow, they've never outright stiffed anyone.

Why do you offend me? I posted it as an advise for players to screenshot their transactions. It's not the first time I have such problem with WG. How warning potential customers about the issue with a seller makes one a scam artist? Where is the logic of that? So you have never been in a situation where you paid for something and it was not delivered? As long as you are an adult you have been in such situation many times in your life. If you are a kid than it could be a different story of course. How would I benefit from convincing anyone on the forum that I should get something if I would not spend credits for it? It's not up to those who read this post anyway so it would not matter. It is between me and WG. This post is just a warning to get a receipt (or a screenshot in case of WoT).

One more thing. I have 40 more premium tanks than you do, so getting those is clearly not a problem for me. Why would I lie because of one tank for credits, not even gold?

Bought the Caernarvon AX last night. The credits were promptly deducted. No tank in my garage ... Lol

Did take screenshots to safeguard myself for this event. Sent in a ticket ... Almost 12 hours later the "my tickets" page will not load to check if they have responded ... Lol

Not a scam just typical Wging :facepalm:

I'm in the same boat. Ticket was raised with WGing and they did reply saying many people are having the same issue and that they are working on a fix, with no timeline as to when it will be... Sit and wait I suppose

I got my FV183 instantly after forking over the credits. Just send in a ticket and it will probably be resolved.

Why in the hell would you want to purchase that tank?

 


Bought it, equipped it, played it once. 

In that battle, shot four times, had 4 kills, including a 2000hp one shot.

So...definitely for the memes.

Before you spend any credits or gold read this.

I have paid 23 million credits for FV215b 183. 23million disappeared from my account, but I din not receive the tank.  I know how to use carousel filters. The depot also did not show that I have the tank. Store (Black Market page) displayed a message that it is already purchased. Restarting game client including safe mode did not help. I have sent a support ticket but you all know how slow is the support. I tried to reset game cache, and the outcome is that I still don't have the FV215b 183, but now the Black Market shows that I can purchase one as if transaction never happened. The problem is that WG took that 23 million credits. Before you spend credits or gold be prepared for such situation and take screen shots of every step, or you may loose a lot of credits or gold. I won't be surprised if I get a response not earlier than Tue. I'm kind of worried if I get the FV215b 183 or 23M credits back.

TAKE SCREENSHOTS OF YOUR TRANSACTIONS!!!

How is this a scam?  Inquiring minds want to know!

My parent's weren't rich when I was born! I specifically told God that I was only willing to exist with rich parents. God scammed me!
