Why TF would I want "black" versions of ships that I already have? Ships that I didn't have to GAMBLE for in the first place? Pfhhhh, lotsa dry, leftover turkey is all I see here.

There is no convert XP bonus on this Black Friday sale....It was all the times before I believe. Why on BLACK FRIDAY would you limit your potential income, and leave out something as minor as that.:Smile_facepalm:

ALSO with Black Friday (15%) and Clan discount (15%) the total is 30% off Tier X ship, this is NOT the case....

Example - Yamato is 20,600,000 million regular price

At 30% off total the total should be 14,420,000, yet in the game it is 17,510,000

THUS your Clan discount and the Black Friday discount will not stack

WG: "Jean Bart is to be removed due to excess popularity"

Also WG a few months later: " exciting Black Friday containers with a chance to drop Jean Bart Black! Armory bundle with Jean Bart Black".

Well milked, well milked indeed. But hey, as long as one can combo artificial scarcity with RNG lootboxes to hell with balance, ships being too popular etc.

Oh WG I wish you hadn't bundled the BF commanders! I would've bought them had you made them all individual sales.:cap_old:

upday bought 2 more premium containers and atlanta B and cossack B popped out  so because i already had the standard ones i did the missions  and used the doubloons to get 2 more containers and out popped kaga B and jean bart B

An earlier Wargaming article said there would be a 15-50% discount on US ships with doubloons and credits, and an xp conversion discount.  What gives man?  What is it with WG mixing information up

You can still buy previous Black Friday ships individually this year, look in the Armory.

The article you are referring to (https://wargaming.com/en/news/wargaming-black-friday/) is from the 2018 Black Friday sale.  Notice how it mentions only the 2018 Black Friday ships (Massachusetts, Tirpitz, Atago, and Asashio)

I just bought the Jean Bart B, which I thought included a combat mission which gives you 2500 gold and 25000 coal for 5 victories IN THE JEAN BART B.  Lo an behold, the combat mission is for the Jean Bart only, and not for the Jean Bart B.  Since I do not have the Jean Bart, this combat mission is totally useless for me.  By the way, I would not have bought the Jean Bart B if I had know the combat mission did not apply to it.  Very misleading.  The description should be much clearer.  What a disappointment.

Shame that there was no doubloom  or premium time deals!  While I love the look of the Black painted ships, the fact they are not usable in special missions or campions makes them little more than pretty things to display in port...

 

Sadly jgerbsjr it has been that way since the first black painted ships were released... WG is good at hiding important details.

Scroll down past the individual 2020 Black Friday ships and you will find Massachusetts B and Tirpitz B as individual purchases.

Damn.  It would have helped if there was a date on there.  I type "Black Friday 2020 WOWS" and this shows up.  I guess that's where the confusion came in.  Still disappointing to see past years gave lots of goodies and this year not so much.

I see that now too :(  Dammit Wargaming.  Is this an accident?  Maybe they'll fix this??

:Smile_great:Yes it showed up after I went into game and only afterwards did it show up in the browser Armory Version, Still that only gives the option of buying for myself,Buying anything other than the current Black Friday event other than or the current ships isn't an option for when buying for a friend,Buying previous Black Friday ships for a friend is not an option2080154498_Screenshot_2020-11-27WargamingnetPremiumShop(1).thumb.png.6f916050dd1d549e59ac9e4dfd084878.png

Thank you for the Black Friday full bundle option, patience has allowed me with one sweep of the sickle to harvest a whole passel of ships. I have many missions to run now and will be able to post Black Commanders of the Fleet, Division and Squadron to their respective ships. :)

It's so great to have a combat mission for regular JB when its impossible to get that ship, why would you not make it for Jean Bart Black?

Because it’s meant as compensation for owners who already have the Jean Bart since the B ships are duplicates.

Considering all the sale events WG host, they will only sell over-priced ships. 

Then you will not be fooled by their misleading info.

Does wargaming ever plan to sell the older ships individually? I'm down for a second tirpitz, im not down to gamble for it.

 

Same goes for lunar new year:Smile_sceptic:
