First of all thanks to Dom1n for sending me this over email. Now, back to the Black Friday, seems its not going to be an exclusive just for consoles and we are getting at least three tanks in black also: T34, IS6- and Mutz. These tanks were introduced with today’s Micro Patch, meaning they will be available soon. No other details have been leaked yet, so I don’t know if these tanks will have some kind of special XP/credit earning rate like the Console ones.
On the other hand, Console Black Friday Tanks weren’t received very well because of their price. Wargaming now decided to cut the prices down, offering bigger discounts to the players:
- Back in Black Mega Bundle: 35% Off
- Back in Black Ultimate Bundle: 30% Off
- Back in Black Duo (I, II, III) Bundles: 20% Off
- Individual Black Edition Tank Bundles: 15% Off
But Wargaming is not very good at doing things correctly sometimes, and even with these discounts the prices are not very appealing. Further more, some tanks are more expensive with the discounts, than they were before, example being the STA-2 cost was 7,400 Gold and got the price increased to 8,700 Gold, now with the discount it costs 7,800 Gold. Wargaming did admit the original prices were a mistake, but if this is true, why instead of keeping them and actually benefiting the players, did they change them? It’s not like they need to produce the tanks, so there isn’t any costs in manufacturing, meaning Wargaming would never make a loss on this.
Let’s just hope that in the PC we don’t have absurd prices for tanks painted in black… But my hopes are very low.
