mokoito won 2 prizes as well, i say its rigged but calling them on their [edited]would only get us banned from the channel

 

Exactly the thing that happened to me, question the [edited], and the mental deficients doing the interviews that have no actual clue about the game, got me a Perma-ban from the channel.  

Rigged or not, they certainly have the mod nazi's always ready to stop an uprising, but never,ever have anyone to spare to watch the servers for cheating/bots.

Awesome, the edit out the letters B and S if they are together.

That's some epic censorship.

Oh the joy of not wanting or caring about a Type 59.  It feels so good to have not wasted any time watching E3 streams, and especially not having to pay attention if I did.  And now today I have like 0 butt hurt, and can leave my tin foil hat in the closet.

 

To those who won Type 59s, congratulations!  I look forward to blowing them up on the battle field.

I quit even trying to watch the "twit" (pun intended) after I got a perm ban for simply asking when the streaming was going to start twice about 1 minute apart. I don't need that fascist crap. Its very entertaining to see that this was rigged,  gee I wonder what else is rigged?

The fact you had to be active, and somehow survive both the onsalught of child spam and trying to get a response in to a question, totally just turned me off of it. And the stream really wasn't that good. 

 

In regards to the Type 59, it's been nerfed so much that it's not even worth to have one. Honestly I'd take the 34-3 over the 59, just because of the fact at least the 122mm is meaner. (Even if the reload time is that of an artillery.) I wish I would've bought one when they were first introduced, as that time was their hayday. And yes, in the hands of a skilled player, the 59 is still a match changer, just not now in the hands of the average. (Which I readily admit I'm an average, so I'd be a hinder to my team. :P)

Hey guys,

 

Just to clear it up, nobody won two Type 59's. The player you mentioned won one Type 59 and a Gold/Credit/Premium code. With a few hundred prizes given out today on the stream, the chances of someone winning some prize twice are actually quite higher than the odds you're giving.

 

There is no rigging in the drawings on stream, they are indeed random (I'm sitting right next to the guys that are drawing the winners, and can vouch for them).

 

-Hyp

 

Being first doesn't make you an instant winner. It is done randomly from the group of replies.

 

One that is actually random.

 

 

:trollface:

So, the stream had about 11K watchers max.  So, assuming everyone watching was following and posting to win, that makes the odds of winning a Type 1/11000.  The odds of winning a second type is 1/11000.  So, 6 possible chances equals about 3/12100000 of getting two types.

 

Or, still better than powerball.

 

EDIT: cross-posted with someone who knows what going on.  Guess that settles the question of "How did someone win two Types"

 

They didn't

 

You forgot factor the odds with all the dumbace spamming going on. You be lucky to catch a glimps of any post.

Assuming the constant population ratio of 1:10,000 players on Twitch WG viewing E3 event, there is only 1 in 100,000,000 (one hundred million) that she could win two prizes in a row - that is like lottery odds of winning. She literally won the lottery >.>

 

the Moderators are giving the type 59 codes to their friends or alt account, leave us with nothing!


GUESS WHAT!!! type 59 is overrated coming from a player that has played the type before Physics. Overrated is what a type 59 is.

 

And guess what, go cry somewhere else cause you didn't get a type 59, im 15 and I wont cry when I don't get something I want.  And now im going to be a jerk.......your stats aren't good, and you have only been playing since Jan 18th 2013. KKthx

 

You seriously went out of your way to make this thread when you could be trying to win a type 59.  I didn't win anything, I still sat and didn't play because I was learning stuff about tanks and twitch and stuff like that. Its not all about the prizes, instead of getting sad and crying to mommy I told my mom to stop talking to I could hear "clutch" and others. #INB4Ban

 

So complaining about not winning a type makes all of you feel better by saying its rigged and should get one(nah, is6 better) doesn't work that way, its given away for free, and im sure people complaining would be the ones rubbing it in if they won.

 

 

Im done my rant, feel free to neg bomb me(personally don't care, its the internet) I just feel the need to vent to all of you and let you know, it will be ok, if not, im sure they make a pill for your problem.

##double post

 

I HAVE A TYPE 59!!!!! but I used my money to buy it.

 

Why do people play the lottery if they know the chances of winning are so slim?

 

Why are you trying to win a type 59 when the chance are "so slim" ~ quote someone in this thread.....

 

They didn't tell you to show up, you wanted to show up. I lied, now my rant and venting is finished.

Apparently the codes are credits -or- gold -or- premium.

This practice should be stopped immediately.  All these promotions all wind up going to the golden ones and not the faithful minions who follow this game hoping for a crumb.

There are over 5,000 people in the chat at a given time, and you're complaining about things being rigged just because you didn't win? I'll concede there may be some error as familiarity with a name may end in double-code handouts, you're better off praying to RNGesus than crying about some sort of conspiracy against you.

Watching the stream and joining chat gives you a chance to win. It doesn't entitle you to anything.

I never thought community members with a good reputation could come down so low. Smart Alec replies and arguing; unbelievable. To the OP, every system is corrupt, but it's not all bad, the Type 59 is just a virtual tank and no longer over-powering Tier 8 it once was. You didn't miss out on much.
