I'm not even sure whether  Poland has money.  I thought they were on a barter system.

My problem is that I cannot register at the Allegro web site which is necessary to take part in the auction. That page is only in Polish. Could not find the "English" button.

 

I tried to search for it, there is no I'm afraid :(

Poor bidding. Only few € higher then yesterday. But i guess the last day of auction it is gonna skyrocket the price :D.

 

234 euro is already a pretty good amount for a pixel tank.

It's lots of tanks though isn't it, including E25, and 6 months prem.

 

The thing I'd be nervous of, is that WG may in the not too distant future release a black T-59, probably in a very expensive bundle but still potentially much better value than this. Although they may not, but there's a chance, so no one should go out on a limb to pay more than they afford to lose on this, you'll just expose yourself to potentially getting burned later. It's for people with lots of cash who can afford to gamble and not mind too much if they end up losing in the long run.

Yes! :)

 

If you want a Type 59, have spare money and like supporting a very worthwhile charity, then this is your chance!

You do realize this time whatever you pay for the 'overpriced bundle' goes to charity?

I mated them and now have 125 Camels and am considered a person of importance in the region.

So... why would I want a Type 59 in the first place?

Just because it used to be OP once upon a time, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away?

 

Would it really be worth that amount of money for which I could buy 10+ other premiums?

Totally agree.... WG and the minions adding to the hype for the tank.......I dont have one... wouldnt even think about buying one at that price.... I know people have a disposable income (im one) but for a fraking tank just to feel "complete" fracking crazy

You are the only person who can assign worth to something you might buy.

 

Personally I would rather spend that money on a thousand other things.

Yes and that's great, but that doesn't change the fact people shouldn't over-expose themselves to risk (of finding in the future they'd paid much more than they needed to), if they can't afford to get burned. I've previously paid well over the odds for something (most recently a resin and separately a metal Judge Minty miniature) I could have got much cheaper (I knew the caster & someone working for the license holder) simply because it was for charity and that's fine because I could afford to and I wanted to support that particular charity, and how rare they are was a certain thing because there'd never be more produced (which isn't so certain with a T-59, it's probably only a small chance but there is a chance they may sell it again or at least a black version).  edit - charity is well worth supporting and paying over the odds for, as long as you can afford to treat any potential overspend as a donation and not a loss.

Last time I was aware this sort of thing happened, it went for £1,500+.

 

Yeah, it's for a good cause, but still to pricey for that tank :P. It's gone for insane amounts each time. So don't expect to get it "cheap". It's at $500 atm. I suspect it's gonna go up way more then that.

I know it's for charity but that ESCI kit. Is it fair to inflict that on someone?
