Now that the Type 59 is admitted to be inferior, let alone over-powered, WG should sell it again. Thoughts?

The Type 59 is WGs shlt storm of a debacle. They have elevated to some weird iconic status.  

When it came out it was like £24 or near as dammit.  To sell it now would mean it would have to be sold with 30k hold or some other inflated crap.

I don't own one. Don't watch streams to beg for one. Quite happy watching others bring up this thread on a weekly basis.

I say this.  The Type will be sold again.  When WG is dying. Not anytime soon to though.

I actually think there is an easy acid test for whether something is "op" or "game breaking" tbh


Rather than tanks being "rare" or infrequently sold EVERY tank should be regularly accessible IF its still in the game, if its not then it should simply be removed and either an alternative offered or a refund given


This could be figured out quite easily by the effect a tank had on results IF everyone who wanted one could get it, if its so "game breaking" that WG don't want to sell it anymore then NOBODY should be allowed to keep it, I really don't see a valid excuse for anything between those two other than "clown tank" variants where another version IS readily available and they have the same stats


Otherwise you do cross the line into the P2W sort of area by having something KNOWN to be too OP but still letting a select or lucky few play them


Did anyone get to keep their WTF E 100 just because they already had it? Why not? And how (apart from purchase price) is that any different to any other tank?


Also the idea that any tank "cant be balanced" is probably the most laughable pile of crap I have ever heard, they are VIRTUAL tanks, absolutely ANY tank in the game "could" be given the exact characteristics of ANY other tank, you "could" if you wanted make a maus play like a bulldog and vice versa if you wanted, so a broken tank could be given the exact same stats in every respect of a tank that isn't broken and problem solved


IF these were "actual" tanks this couldn't be done obviously, but they aren't, theyre pixel tanks and could be made to fly, drive under water or transform into trees by pressing the "T" button if the developers chose

I tell my friends the exact same thing. If WG sells the tank again, it will be for a cash-grab because the game is declining.

 

And I understand your attitude for these threads. The reason I posted this one is because I was curious if anyone had any information about WG's intentions since they are now going to buff the tank. It seems odd that they are buffing it all of a sudden when this has actually been an issue for awhile now (it being underpowered).

 

While I still think your quoted comment is correct, this buff gives me a sneaky suspicion that they may be setting us up to sell it again (Recently Buffed Type 59 - One Day Sale!). Perhaps on the advent calendar or something like that? Maybe I'm just paranoid? :hiding::)

Nah, I think the buff is a pretty good indication they will find "some" excuse to sell it again


And being WG perhaps even before the buff in case the buff isn't as good as many expect it to be as that would reduce the sales

I don't see it happening anytime soon as it'd create a bit of problem considering that they've said they'll never sell it again - not that, that stopped them with the Sherman Mutant of course.

 

Would I mind if it went on sale, can't say I would as it's neither OP or broken so why not?

They won't sell it alone. They need something rare to give as a prize or sell for a big bundle, such as the 99 Euro offers with the Pz 2 J and such.
The tank is not OP anymore as its armor got powercreeped badly and with the current MM... yeah, good luck with the PMM!

Also, get rid of the "We won't nerf premium tanks" policy. Treat them like normal tanks and buff/nerf as needed.

Depending on the aimtime buffs Type59 gets after patch. it might be better to grab the T-34-3 as it might actually be worth it after the buffs. "might".

Who the fheck still cares about the Type 59? Lots of people have them yet i haven't seen any around for about a year now.. Which probably means they've become obsolete.. Like the T-34-3 (which is arguably even better than it).

I'd rather see type59s than a defender infestation for christmas. That would break tier 8 mm completely (look at tier 8 sh)

WG's word means nothing these days, and they saw to that themselves.

 

The Type isn't that far away from other prems these days, arguably it's not actually that great overall. Selling it wouldn't be that problematic from that perspective, but the fallout would be amusing to watch from the sidelines.

Now that? It's been very public knowledge for years now that the Type is really just a bad tank overall. And yes there is a reason why it won't be sold, and that's the complete and utter shtstorm that would brew from doing it. Could be kinda funny too, though.

No, the Type59 should not be sold again and even with the gun handling buff it's still not a great tank.

They missed their chance as far as im concerned.. the hype is over, their opportunity to make some serious bucks are gone, along with the playerbase thats gone since it was last on sale.

Type 59 is far from "OP". And is indeed not considered the best tier 8 prem around. But it still has a status if you will. It's still a tank many want, even if it was way more crap. And if sold, would break tier 8 MM more then the E25 did when it was sold last Xmas when you did see 6 on each team. That and it's the only tank that makes people watch their WGL streams. As 90% of the chat is people asking for when the 59 give away is. And the second it's given out, the viewer base drops from a few thousand, to below 100.

Just sell the damned thing already (yes I have one).

 

Then I will wait with popcorns and some nice cold beverage for the shitstorm on the forums....

 

"TYPE 59 IS CRAP"

 

"WAS TYPE 59 NINJA NERFED?"

 

"I WANT MY MONEYZ BACK"

 

"BUFF TYPE 59"
