Heads up post folks.  WG acknowledges some folks show it unavailable and that timers are off for others.   Doesn't sound like the timer issue is directly affecting the event though.

 

I'm also guessing support is getting too many tickets filed, so they put out the word they cannot assist with BM purchases.

 

I snipped the times out as they were listed for the BM we just had.

Black Market Times

 

Created 12 hours ago

 

Greetings Tankers!

 

Please note!

 

If you are unable to participate in a particular sale, even if it is due to technical issues beyond your control, we are unable to offer additional tanks for sale once they have sold out.

 

Customer service cannot assist you in manually purchasing a tank that you missed purchasing in the Black Market. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience!

 

  • Some players are experiencing an issue where the Black Market displays as unavailable in-game. We are working to resolve this, but do not currently have an ETA.

 

  • Some players are experiencing a display issue where their Black Market timer in-game is not set correctly, causing them to think that a sale will occur one hour later than it is actually scheduled.

 

          --SNIP--  Removed times as they're were for the morning auction we just had.  See second quote for the time schedule.

 

 

 

 

Black Market times folks.  Also no word on the timer fix either.  All I snipped was the listed time.  First link takes you to the full support article.

 

https://worldoftanks.com/en/news/announcements/black-market-0220/

Starting Saturday, Feb. 8, new offers are available twice daily at 08:00 PT | 10:00 CT | 11:00 ET and 20:00 PT | 22:00 CT | 23:00 ET.

Does anyone really want T3 tanks for 15k and 9.5k gold anyways. This is a colossal waste of time. Nothing "new" or exceedingly "rare". Giant money grab from a company that sure seems like isn't doing so well.

I've lost the Type 59 G last year, and leF this year through no fault of my own.  Nice to have some sort of explanation, even if it doesn't make anything better.

You mean the tier 2 and 3 tanks that sold out in minutes or seconds?? Are those the tanks you're asking if anyone wants??

Yup those. Would be tons still for sale if they sold more than 500. Guess WG can get idiots with tons of money to waste to buy anything. I bought the SU for my son back when it went on sale for an hour for $9. Kinda sad that WG even admitted the think was full on 100% op and pulled it faster than lightning. Yet they know idiots will buy it for, what, 10times that much now?

I sent a ticket in to get the leFH. It's the only thing I wanted out of the BM and I was up at the right time to get it. Clicked Purchase and it told me it was unavailable while there were still ~600 left. If Wargaming doesn't let me get it like I deserve to, I'll be uninstalling for the forseeable future. This event is already a fiasco and you're telling me that they're not going to reimburse you if you get screwed over by a glitch in THEIR event? Screw that.

 

From what I understand though, Wargaming Support cannot make the executive decision to provide me with the tank. They would need an o-k from the higher-ups and I doubt that will happen.

I had the same problem with the Tiger C twitch tank, long story short, even though twitch prime customer support was great and wrote me a great email saying how they support myself to get the tank, WG refused.  WG doesnt care how much you spend on the game, so i quit supporting them as i used to buy almost every premium that came out

They would have sold thousands if they had offered that many. And I have to point out that the only idiots are the people who can't understand that everyone has their own, equally valid, opinions as to the value of such items.
