Holy crap man. 1500USD????? and to be eligible to buy it  you had to of spent 17,000USD? Welp next time you or I go to complain about EU even if it's with reason I'll just remember the Chinese server and it's owners 

 

However, saying that. WG if you wish to put this in the prem shop for 100ish euro's(like initially planned ,apparently) My bank is on the ready :coin:

This diagram explains to whom it is targeted:

Whales in Gaming & Media

 

So nope, that offer isn't directed at scrubs like us. Not the free player,not the the paying player, but it is targeted at those who go *Here's the cash, gimme everything you got!* sort of folks. I fully expect that these ludicrously expensive offers & deals will one day pop up in more western games as well.

I have it on console. And it's not worth 1500.. Not even 50. But it's a steep price even for China. The Type 59 gold was like $600 iirc. WT auf E-100 was $198. And the WZ-113 Opera thingy was around $800. And 17 000? I doubt many have spent that much, even on that server.

I'm sure you could sell some people sprout and liver flavour crisps if you stuck a gold "Limited Edition!" sticker on the bag.

It would probably never arrive as the engine would break down on the way.

Oh right... Totally forgot about that 'game'. So it already reached the west, in a yet to be released game of all things...

No Sprout & Liver Flavour, this is the closest I could find.

People haven't realised that China's not a poor country anymore. These people have ridiculous amounts of money because their economy is thriving, so it's not strange that they can do these things. I expect the culture to be different when it comes to gaming as well, I personally would never spend that much money on a pixel tank, but the culture might be different there. Esports is huge where the players are pretty much celebrities so I suppose it gets easier to understand. South Korea, Japan and Singapore flush ridiculous money into the online gaming industry, especially on the competitive end. I don't see how China'd be any different. 

 

I mean, they have Dota 2 schools. League of Legends schools. If Starcraft was still a thing you'd bet they would have one for that too. They're starting to flush in money into CS:GO as well, giant sponsors and player potential is going through the roof. I personally have a hard time seeing this into WoT, but it's an insight into how serious online gaming is compared to the western world in general.
