2018 Black Friday Containers

I have a account on Asia Server and when the Black Friday Containers were released i bought 10 of the 2018 containers 24 hrs later those containers were removed so people couldnt buy them and it was stipulated in the news posted 25th november that we could buy 2019 and 2018 containers now that article has been removed as well

 

My gripe is why advertise something and you pull everything after it was released as i was looking forward to buying them on the EU server where my main account is

Hello,

          due to a technical issue players were mistakenly compensated using the 2018 black containers. Players essentially were compensated when they received a Black version of a normal premium ship they already had. So not only did they get the black ship but also the amount of doubloons it was equivalent to. This issue was posted in the news section of the website and MrConway confirmed it on the forums. The issue was quickly resolved.

 

Regards,

                Minia

from other posts I would guess that the dropping didn't work as intended, for example people getting a ship and a doubloon compensation at the same time

Black Friday 2019 containers will be back soon, but unfortunately 2018 boxes were removed from sales due to technical reasons. All already purchased boxes work normally, but no more of them will be available in this sale.

Hey Klopirat, there's something I'm having trouble understanding here. Why would Wargaming advertise something like a good deal like this and then remove it? 

 

In my opinion I would have thought that having both the 2018 and 2019 containers would have made a great bundle sale for everyone. I thought about the technical issue and kinda think it was a human error on the coding somewhere.

To the best of my understanding, the containers were providing untended compensation for people who owned the original variants of the B ships.

 

They were removed from sale for less than an hour that I noticed.
