Right, why only sell 500 when it appears they are desperate for money?

Based on last year financial results WG is desperate for the money, so they will offer Type 59 again soon, in one way or another.

How did you see those? WG is a privately held company that I thought no longer posted their financials?

Yes. The price was 25k gold on all the other servers too.

 

WG isnt hard up for cash. This was a way for them to drain 12.5 million gold out of the server. I doubt even a quarter of the people who bought the tank actually spent cash on it, since most people probably still had tons of gold laying around from last Christmas.

Yes... some people would ahve had to buy gold, but far more people would have used either tourney gold or christmas gold or clans wars gold to buy this.

Bingo!

 

Got people to fork over 25M in gold for a gold colored skin.  Shockingly obvious and even more shocking that people bit on it.

Well, what it's clear is that the 59s are now in the garage of this game's best arty players. :trollface:
