If you are new in World of Tanks, you might have heard, or not, about the Black Market and wonder what it is. Well, that is simple, it’s an event where for 7 days you will have two deals per day that might interest you for Gold or Credits.
These deals are usually Premium vehicles or rare ones with straight prices, like 5,000 Gold, or 8,000,000 Credits, or can be auctioned with a minimum bid. Of course, these deals are limited in numbers, always changing depending on the vehicle.
Black Market instantly became a popular event, with players constantly asking when the next one is going to be and this leaves a lot of margin for fake leaks or speculation about lists of vehicles that might come.
Today, WOT Express published a small picture with a comment from the official World of Tanks RU VK.com profile, joking the Russian championship starts on the 26th of February. Of course, this leads to a lot of posts and information saying the Black Market is coming on that day, but I don’t think that date is correct.
The first Black Market event started on Thursday, 23 May 2019 and it lasted seven days and the second Black Market event started on Thursday, 6 February 2020, lasting for seven days. February 26 is on a Friday…
Of course, this doesn’t mean the date is totally wrong, maybe it’s a hint and we could say it could start on Thursday, 25 February. But could it really be? If we look again at last year calendar, the event started on 6 February, ended on the 12 February and on the 21 February the Bourrasque marathon started… So, if we get a marathon more to the end of February 2021, we can’t get the Black Market at the same time.
I believe the Black Market if it comes this month, will be on one of these dates:
From 4 February until 10 February;
- From 11 February until 17 February.
- From 18 February until 24 February.
- From 25 February until 3 March.
Remember, these dates are my assumptions, I strongly believe we will see the Black Market on one of those dates because if we get the Chinese 122 TM medium tank marathon, it will either be between 12 to 21 February or 19 February to 1st of March. Update 1.12 is coming early March, most likely 3 or 4 March, leaving no other dates for the Black Market event.
Please remember, I have no way of confirming the above information, this is me purely speculating based on previous calendars and knowing Wargaming does follow a pattern when it comes to events.
What do you think? Is the Black Market something you are looking for too? Could it possibly come this early or maybe Wargaming will wait for later in the year? Let us know your opinion in the comment section.
