What is Black Market?

The Black Market is a special WoT event where players can purchase rare in-game items (including vehicles) using gold, credits, or bonds. Black Market offers appear suddenly. They are available to purchase for a limited time period, and the number of available offers may also be limited.

The Black Market is closed right now. Stay tuned for updates on the official portal to learn whether it will be launched again and, if so, when exactly it will occur.

Black Market General Principles

This article describes the mechanics of previous Black Markets. If and when a new Black Market takes place, the rules may change. You will learn about this from news on the official portal and in this article.

The Black Market is only available in the in-game Store. A special section appears for the duration of the event.

Black Market offers refresh twice a day.

An offer may have a counter indicating the number of items still available. If you did not purchase the offer in time and it was sold out, there is nothing we can do about it.

Players can purchase offers using gold, credits, or bonds, but only using the currency specified in the offer description.

Several sales mechanics are available in Black Market. For example, the following mechanics were used during the previous Black Market:

  • Limited quantity of an offer. The number of items was limited and the cost was fixed. If an item sold out in less than 12 hours, you would receive a notification.
  • Unlimited quantity of an offer. The cost was fixed, but the number of items was not limited. For 12 hours, anyone could purchase the item.
  • Closed auction. The number of items was limited, the initial cost was fixed, and the items available would go to the players who made the highest bet within 8 hours.

When purchasing an item via auction, if your bet failed, the funds were returned to your account in full within four hours.

You can purchase items from the Black Market only for your own account. Purchasing an item as a gift for another player is not possible.
