So I watched the 'sale', then made a post about it, then clicked battle for my first battle of the day.  Had FIVE of the Goldilocks in the battle.  (No, I was not one of them).  Two on my team, three on the enemy team.

-

So how did they do?  Here are the battle results:

Oh yeah baby, I got a piece of all three of them!  I got the first spot of the game on one of them, and got the first shot of damage into him!  And killed two of them!  2nd kill was a ram kill, soooo satisfying!

So they actually did pretty good, especially the ones on the enemy team (of course).  Battle played out pretty close.  They pushed north hard, we pushed south hard.  Neither push really 'worked'.  We stuffed them north, and we had to fall back south.  Eventually they fell back to defend and we flanked them for the win.

-

I have to say I understand why these are 'targets' on other servers.  So shiny, so tempting to shoot. 

-

Really to bad there were only 500 of them for sale, worse they were only for sale like 30 seconds.  But and interesting bit of color to the game experience history...-

I just had a match against a team with four of them.  Killed two of them with my regular Type 59, one with a round to the engine block and one by ramming.  They even look shiny when they die.

The only way WG could get me to spend $100 on a tank is an auto loading T34!  LOL

They're going to perform the same as any other Type 59... so kind of a dumb question.  It's a 25,000 gold skin and that's it.

Supposedly back in the day they'd almost always get teamkilled soon as the battle started.

I think for every bit you blow off of them you should get the gold equivalent.

WG wanted to create a Rage over this..

Fact is this tank should have been 75 dollars and open to all..

There was another post that a fellow said what about the people that are working and cant be there to buy it..

Maybe the Black Market should be set as a private Bid type thing not a Can you click fast enough. This would allow those that are working to have a chance.

Sad thing is the bidding could run so high that only the rich could buy it.

COULD YOU EMAGINE PAYING 400 dollars for this POS? lol

You didn't miss a thing and saved yourself $100 that could be better spent on up to 3 different tanks, etc.  Or whatever else was more important.

Can you 'emagine' being so upset about stupid people that you can't imagine being able to buy THE SAME THING at a higher price through a bidding war.

"WG wanted to create a Rage over this.."

- no they didnt, it's just another cash grab, it creates a greater sense of urgency to get it the next time around

 

"Fact is this tank should have been 75 dollars and open to all.."

- not according to basic economics. This golden type 59 is a luxury item, it is only worth what people are willing to pay for it, there is no baseline to determine value. In this case, WG created an artificial lack of supply, which allows them to set a higher price on the luxury good. They could probably make it cost even more and people would buy it anyways, but I doubt they would do so. Economically speaking, the current price tag is perfectly justified.

 

"There was another post that a fellow said what about the people that are working and cant be there to buy it.."

- that's not WG's fault. If you are too poor to have a laptop with you at work, go on a 10 minute crap break to go buy it on your laptop, then chances are you probably dont have money for this goldent type 59. Sure it sucks, but what is WG supposed to do? There is a 3 hour difference between california and new york. SOMEONE will be excluded from the sale either way.

 

"Maybe the Black Market should be set as a private Bid type thing not a Can you click fast enough. This would allow those that are working to have a chance."

- the only person who wins from private bids is WG. A considerable amount of people have an excess of 100k gold from Christmas. Do you honestly think you will outbid them?

 

"Sad thing is the bidding could run so high that only the rich could buy it."

- true lel

 

"COULD YOU IMAGINE PAYING 400 dollars for this POS? lol"

- so.... you defeated your own point? The current price tag in gold is $120 CAD or $90 USD depending on your discount. I think WG would get slammed even harder if someone exposed on reddit that they spent 100k gold to bid on this tank. People would instantly bash them for a bidding system

 

 

 

 

Look, I really dont like defending WG but the amount of buthurt in these golden type 59 threads is saddening. The thing will be nothing special in a month

Dude, were you one of those people who bought the $999 'every premium tank in the game' packages???  If you are, just curious if you thought it was money well spent..
