Honestly, go blame the super testers for letting these kinds of tanks get past super test.  Seriously, are you super testers that bad at the game that you can’t figure out when a tank is going to be OP?!!??

It’s not because the type is OP, it’s not.  It’s because it’s intended to be rare.  

 

The type is not a rare tank.  It is just like the E25, widely sold by WG.  What is rare is the JZIIJ

You keep selling the E-25 few times a year a tank that is OP but dont sell the Type 59 because you think Type 59 is OP? That does not make sense. The Type 59 doesnt have OP camo or rate of fire.

 

really rare tanks (su-75i) 

e- 25 is meh at most

well when the e-25 was added it was not OP the thing that with drew it from the game shop was: 

it’s Limited MM and maybe the fact it was exempt from camo changes that hit every other non premium TD at that time ( changes to camo)

It is because of the hype to seel said tanks.

5 - You werent here when they sold the type 59 years ago i assume? It was nothing but type 59's in matches for a whole week until  WG took them away and refunded everyone

Can I get a refund for mine? It is a decent tank but I don't really play Chinese tanks so it is useless as a trainer for me.

1 - It's not OP, Ide rather take an fv4202 in almost every situation over it

2 - it's a reward tank for doing something outstanding for the community/ special contest prize

3 - Selling it would be pissing all over the work heavy contributors do for this game

4 - It's probably the best credit printer in the game

5 - You werent here when they sold the type 59 years ago i assume? It was nothing but type 59's in matches for a whole week until  WG took them away and refunded everyone

 

and to answer your question: why does wg keep selling op tanks?

A - Because no one wants to buy balanced tanks. They make the t92, imo a far from OP tank, and then a bunch of reviewers saide "ehhh, probably not worth your money" ... so in response, WG naturally brings back "OP" tanks, since everyone wants them

 

Selling balanced tanks is fine, I buy plenty of balanced tanks. What I'm not interested in buying is blatant cash grabs, or tanks that are not unique to their tech tree counter parts and worse than them in the same package. If they actually had made that a T7 it would have been interesting, but they made it a T8 and nerfed it at the exact same time. Like what?

if you think the Type 59 is widely sold you must be stupid.

it hasn't been sold since 2012 and the only way to get it is through special events.

E 25 has been sold multiple times in special events. 

Pz II J has the same rare status the Type 59 does because it's only available through TankRewards.

SU-75I isn't a tank.

You either meant SU-76I or SU-85I.

The E25 is above average, but it's probably a stretch to call it OP.  It's quite a bit worse than the AT 7 is, worse than the O-Ni, worse than the IS-2B, worse than a lot of tanks many people do not consider to be OP.

that seems like a stretch to call any tank OP.

if the driver doesn't do well in it, nothing will make it OP.

sure we have noob friendly tanks but those aren't OP either if they just sit there and expect not to die.

Everyone considers the IS-2B to be OP, it's straight up better than an IS and the O-Ni is also pretty OP for the armor value that it has

so because the tank is just a outright better version of the regular tech tree version that makes it "OP"?

so... the T-44-100 is better than the T-44 in most regards.. does that make the T-44-100 "OP"?

Regardless of what anyone personally considers to be OP, the E25 performs on the same level as the Lowe and IS6.   It's significantly worse than tanks like the AT7, O-Ni, and IS-2B, which are rarely touted as the epitome of OP tanks.

 

In other words, the E25 is overhyped.

A wise man once told me, If the question begins with 'why', the answer ends with 'money'. WG is a business.
