So recently it was released on World of tanks PC an event called “black market”. During 7 days every 12 hours they sell  any premium tank regardless of rarity. That sounds cool and all but what is the “wow” factor? You can buy premium tanks with credits! Now here’s the catch there is a limited stock of premium tanks that people can buy. For example, 500 IS6 and after those are sold out, the tank is no longer available. Same applies after the 12 hours pass if the tank is still on stock.  Even the super rare type 59 gold was sold to be able to purchase with credits! (Edit: I’m an idiot that tank was actually sold at 25,000 gold which is about $100 there were only 500 on NA server and those where sold out in 14 seconds after they released it!)On PC the type 59 gold is way more exclusive than the blitz version, which everyone and their mother has one, it was only sold in the Asian server through a limited time with a crazy price tag like). Now that’s the type of events we need, I don’t complain about the free premiums which were offered through events, that was a good move. However the chance of buying any premium with credits is a way to tempting offer to let it pass. The prices were reasonable also, a tier 8 premium costed around 5 mil. This is the type of stuff we need. It will benefit both newcomers and veterans alike, and newcomers might even spend on a premium account during the event to earn more credits so it’s a win win situation.

The sort of equivalent was the winter fair, with good and bad years.

im not sure blitz is mature enough, but maybe it will be so.

this is a great idea because some Tankers have “gad-zillion” credits

Are you sure it is credits?

The screen shots that I have seen show the tanks available to buy with gold.


Selling rare premiums for credits makes no sense for WG.

Edit: I guess it was both, some tanks available for credits, others for gold.

If somebody wants to spend $100 for a yellow tank skin and winds up supporting the game that's great (for the rest of us, stupid for them)

If somebody with 100 million credits can dump some of that into special tanks good for them.



Just wish they'd fix the server or like um maybe put in something to help the new player suck less above tier 1 like they said they would.
