Yessssssssssssssssssssss, gimme dat Panzer 5/4!

 

Dunno what else will be offered but I suspect:

 

- 3D styles from 2019/2020 loot boxes

- Type 59G which will sell out in all of 15 seconds

- Some old tier tens that were swapped out for credits (Foch 155/183)

- Some rarer premiums that probably aren't worth it unless you're a collector

- Probably at least one entirely new tank

- Probably at least one super crew for purchase

- Chance to bid on Jambijon's office in Serb's Moon Base

So how does the Black Market work exactly? Paying for credits for limited offers, right?

That's what I'm wondering.  Seems I was on break or otherwise missed any other ones they had.  Anyone got more details?  Average prices, tiers, etc?

here is how it works:

 

1. You login

2. you wait for Black Market store to load 

3. you realize that tank you wanted already sold out in 15 seconds while you were waiting to load the Black Market store

4. ………….

5. you logout

6. profit

It's all relative of course, but generally speaking it's for whales, yes.  There will be some low tiers that's affordable for everyone, but even then, you still pay the price.

 

I predict the rumored golden Waffe E 100 will show up and sell out in 12 seconds breaking last year's record.

Been after a Type59 since i started playing the game.  

 

The people who live around the servers will jump on and lock them up. By the time the rest of the folks even get to look at the store, the things will be gone. 

 

So basically the same as last year.....

Guys the time tomorrow may just be the kick off time.  Then it may reset and follow previous years times.  Key word being may of course.

 

And thanks FDV for last years list.   Plus one.

 

Edit:  Forgot they cycled twice a day last year.

They are doing it at 11 am, because EU has it at 5pm. We will not have advantage over EU server anymore by knowing what will be available next.

I am happy to see the Black Market return, but not having the advance notice of what would be offered by checking the EU forums the night before is a little of an inconvenience. Last time I could just check the EU offer and see if I would be interested in that tank and then sell equipment and consumables to get ready for the NA offer. Not knowing in advance will definitely throw a wrench in my system, but it should still be a lot of fun.

Last May they had 2 different offers per day. 1 at server reset in the a.m. and another at 6 or 7 pm EST. If you wanted to see if you wanted what was available in the early sale you could check the EU server page at midnight EST. Usually ( but not every time) the NA server would get same offer.
