Has this tank always been in the comparison list in the garage or is this Black Market hype?! And now I notice the King Tiger © in there as well?!

There are people reporting it will be on sale for 15K gold.

Is that with the x2 credit earnings over a non gold Type or regular T8 prem?

I have heard that it gets focus fired and team killed more than any other tank in the game. No thanks.

15,000 gold is $63.25 USD if you use the Any Amount option to buy gold.

Not bad as the tank is a few hundred dollars on the China sever so I have been told.  $400 I think it was the last time I heard and that was years back. I could be wrong though.

Knowing that there might be some players who get butt-hurt when this tank loads into battle almost makes me want to get it!

 

If they're butt-hurt, they're emotional.  And if they're emotional, they make mistakes — and that gives me the advantage.

 

Hmmm...  Maybe I will have to get one now.  Just for schitzen giggles.

 

:B

How about a special-skin KV-2 commanded by Serb, and crewed by the Ukranian Bikini-Sniper team?

Highly unlikely.  My best guess is it will be sold, but without the Chinese super bonus.  Just a Type-59 but gold.

Might be (probably is) a dumb question (and I'm too lazy to figure it out)...…..but is it any better than the Type 59, other than the weird gold skin?  

 

(sorry...……..saw guido's post after...…..so no...…..nothing exceptional)

Thanks and that's what I'm thinking too.

That's because it was supposed to be a reward for a contest.  Then immediately after, the

Chinese company handling WoT sold it and everyone got mad.

So similar to what WG has done with almost ever other "rare" exclusive, limited tank, that they then have resold. The reselling of the type 59, gold or not will truly be WG's jump the shark moment.
