Seems like nothing more than a way to bait people into converting freexp for gold.  I guess we’ll see.

Pretty much hit the nail on the head with that one.

 

With lots of players flush with gold after the Christmas boxes just now, how many have unchecked the 'Accelerate Crew Training' option to start building the XP for conversion.

 

I'll take my chances now with what I have, 1.4m in Free XP and 290k gold. It should allow me to grab a couple of vehicles.

Hours of the auction will make it so people with a job are kind of out of luck doesn't it.

Looking forward to getting at least one of the tier 10s on another account but it is no great leap of the imagination that for the most part this will be a record setting event as far as the bids are concerned.

Now the real question is will this be the black market or is this just put in to drain the accounts for when the black market comes everyone will have to now spend more money instead of left over xmas loot like years before ?

Definitely not the Black Market.  I think it's a test run for them to see what kind of numbers people are willing to put up in freeXP and how many convert FreeXP using gold to try and bid...thereby burning through gold on accounts right before the Black Market.

 

If I'm right, be aware anyone converting FreeXP because if you don't win the bid there will be no refund of your gold.

Can't please all the people all the time.  It's been this way for Clan Wars for years and other events they've held.

There is an assumption about a book with a bookmark.
This is Type 59.
The book is the history of WG, and the bookmark is a reference to the year of the rabbit according to the Chinese calendar. The last time was in 2011... and if you pay attention to the watch chain in the form of the number 9, we get September 2011, this is patch 0.6.7 and the addition of Type 59 to the game.

I like your thinking. I too, had seen the number 9 in the chain.  Never referenced the book as the history of wargamming, but it is plausible.

 

And the 59G is always going to be a money spinner for them.

 

My issue is that I want to collect them all, except the envelope if it is the T95E2.

Wargaming does nothing for us but find ways to take more money. If they were smart they would do something for their paying customers that does not involve trying to drain their wallets. I'm pretty much done buying things from Wargaming. I have 354 premium days left and will give up premium when that is over. The matchups amongst other things are extremely unfair.
