To buy it outright:

 

40k bonds or

800k free xp or

100,000,000 credits or

55k gold ( over $200)

 

Wow. This is gonna be a hell of a resource sink

I really like the idea of being able to mix-and-match currencies to purchase the Obj 780.

But everything else about this event is just... why?

  1. It's insanely expensive, as Tanfa already mentioned.
  2. The tank as currently balanced is not good for the game in my opinion.
  3. It allows anyone to outright buy a tier 10 by purchasing gold, which is not what we need. At least with the Free XP auction for the Obj 268v5 you had to have ground enough in the game to have that much convertible Free XP. For this auction you don't even have that requirement. Personally I don't think players should be able to buy a tier 10 like this until they've ground to a tech tree tier 10. Maybe that's just me though.
  4. This also makes me wonder if people will create alt accounts to purchase the Obj 780, and then resell those accounts for exorbitant prices on Ebay. Since we all know the market for accounts with rare/valuable tanks is very much alive and well on Ebay.
  5. 20,000 of these tanks running around is insane. Considering most of the time there are only 20k accounts online even during prime time.
  6. Tier 10 sucks to play right now anyways because of how bad the meta is. And 20k 780's running around is only going to make that worse.

 

Overall, I'm kind of disappointed.

Is there a way to see how many remain? I'm curious to see if the whales will leave anything for the regulars by the end of day 1.

Yes. As mentioned in the article, it will show you in the Assembly Shop screen how many are left.

Thanks, guess I missed that bit. Ah well, if I were to get it outright it would put me in the hole for $150, and I doubt there'd be any left by the time I grinded out anything remotely close to the necessary resources. Guess I'm gonna sit this one out.

Per the article: You can use up to 50 national blueprints from each nation, in increments of 25.

So much fail. Why is this even a timed event? Either people have the stuff and they, being village idiots, feel compelled to spend it on this complete waste, or they don't. A week or two won't change anything.

 

This event might be useful to the two crazy people on the server who have already unlocked everything in the game AND have since then built up this much fake currency afterward. To everyone else, except the village idiots, it's completely useless.

 

And if you are a village idiot and need it spelled out for you, what Wargaming is doing here is drain your fake currency balance so you'll remain addicted to the game, having to spend another 5 years building up the balance so they can drain it from you instantly with another stupid "event" like this. Or if you're particularly special, the answer is no. Please no. Don't pay real money for this. Also, time is money.

On paper it looks like a Obj 277 with slight +/- in various parameters. 

I like how they are allowing blueprints to be used as currency. I have eveything on the trees unlocked and a ton of free xp so I will probably grab it since I do not use those resources for anything anyhow.

When will the option pop up to purchase? (Knowing already its 0300 PST) Do I have to reload the game, will something pop up between now and then and I can just spam click it? Yes its a bad price.. but as others said.. once you have everything..

Seems like an entirely new and annoying way to monetize and gatekeep content, Tier 10 isn't even fun in the current meta so this is an easy skip.

The way it happened on other servers (which is most likely how it will happen on NA) is that the server went down for its normal scheduled maintenance, and when it came back up and you logged in it was there.

You click a button next to the Battle Pass button at the top of the garage to get to the screen for it.

It goes live at 3:00AM PST.

 

Also, just a caveat I've heard from some friends on the ASIA server, is that the screen where you exchange blueprints is on a different screen from where you exchange the other currencies.
