Good morning Tankers, 

 

Two rare vehicles return to the premium shop: the German Pz.Kpfw.38H 735 (f) and the Chinese Type 59! The last time the Type 59 was on sale was 2012 before it was removed from the premium shop, so don't miss your chance to own either of these extremely rare vehicles. 



Head over to the article here for all the additional details. Happy tanking!

Selling the Type-59. Guess that's one way to help pay for the USC server move.

When you can start an account in 2021 and buy the "Founders Bundle"...

 

This was THE LAST vehicle that early supporters of the game could take pride in owning. It wasn't a broken promise like the others, but we all knew what the Type 59 was about.

Selling for a month too. No consideration for the thousands of players  customers who bought far too many loot boxes for a chance to get this rare tank. Now it's going to be about as rare as a Toyota Corolla.

Is the tank really that great or is it just that until now, you couldn't get it any more? If I encounter a 59 in battle, I hardly ever notice it so I'm somewhat at a loss as to what the big deal is.

WOW wg, 

Well Now I have Two types, One Gold one normal to collect Dust, It's also a really great deal, Expect theses
"deals" to keep coming as wg gets more and more desperate for cash. 

 

Back when my Type, Su76I, Type 62, T44-100,Grostraktor, Mini Maus  I would really be pissed. These days I no longer play much if at all.

I've had it a long time. I haven't played ANY low tier tanks in years (play4funz account). As I remember, it is slow as molasses in January, and is easily penned by TDs & APCR, so... not that good even for players who do play low tiers.

The game had +4 matchmaking when it was introduced. Stuarts and Shermans couldn't do much against Type-59 platoons, and sheltered matchmaking actually meant something back then.

"we're not greedy" as they have turned into one of the more scummy companies imo.  Greed flows through every decision they make now.

 

Edit:  Selling the mini maus really screams WE'RE LOOKING OUT FOR NEW PLAYERS...because it's basically indestructible.  Especially if you're a poor new player who has no idea.  That's great for quality of life at low tiers WG and really backs up this entire year mantra of "all about new player experience".  Honestly, you guys are upset at the 59 but it's powercrept out the but now and is a figure head more than anything.  We should all be a bit frustrated at the mini maus bundle.  Who is going to buy that?  You think a new player checking the game out for a few hundred to thousand games is gonna drop 100$ like that?  No.  Only players who have been here and know what that is will buy it...and then go club the crap out of actual new players.  That is the tank that shouldn't be sold again.

 

The 59...it's whatever tbh.  People that have dropped hundreds trying for it have only themselves to be mad at.  The mini maus bundle is the one that should really not be there.  "new player experience"  what the hell ever WG.

 

Complete BS if you ask me.   Also, guaranteed we wont see another WG employee in this thread.

One word, "Greed". This company has repeatedly lied about every premium tank they ever said would be "pre-order exclusive", "rare", "removed" ... because like an "addict" they eventually break down and "relapse" and need a "fix" ... you can never, ever "trust this guy", ever ...

I'm gonna buy it but honestly i'm pretty sad its being sold. I started in 2012 and i was new and didnt know to buy one. So all these years i've kicked myself for not getting one. Its sad to see the end of an era...soon we'll see the super mutant on sale again. maybe it has been on sale again and i just missed it in the last few years.

I've had one since 2012 and I couldn't care less if they sell it again. Let folks buy it so they realize it has been powercreeped into oblivion and is now a mediocre tank.

 

"Oh no, my special supercool exclusive pixels are not exclusive anymore"

 

Please.

This is a bit misleading to say the Type 59 hasn't been sold since 2012, because of the events where the Type 59 gold has been sold over the last year.
