Would love to get into a 3-man '59 platoon sometime.

Even if only for the, 'Oh 5hit', value.

 

create ingame chat channel.

Suggested name "Hype 59 platoons"

Suggested password "usedtobeOP" or "used2bOP"

 

Or something of that nature. I am on a train going to a work meeting and typing the forums on my iPhone, but you get the idea. It would work in a similar fashion to the ingame "forumites" channel, which might I remind readers has the password "play4fun".

Congratulations OP. Welcome to the Hype 59 owners club. I bought mine back when they were first sold. It is not the OP vehicle it was back then, but due to low shell costs it is still a good earner if you can make the 181 penetration work.

 

181 pen at tier 8? zbhwahahha what a joke...

YAY buy a couple of boxes and I got a Type 59 as well, I am well happy as been after it for years. So made up and it looks good in the garage. Thanks WG a great Start to Christmas for me. I have also seen 3 other Type 59s given in my community so am a little concerned that the rarity of this vehicle, whether power creeped or not could easily be wiped out in one event. Don't get me wrong I am well happy to finally get this addition to the garage and appreciate that it is not OP but seeing so many given out in boxes does water down its appeal.

 

But thanks War Gaming the event has been only running a morning and it already looks the best Christmas event you have done. I congratulate you.....

It’s a clever idea from WG. They’re selling the Type without “selling” it. Good call marketing team!

Wow I just bought 11 decoration packs (modern Christmas) and got a Type 59! Awesome, been wanting to play one of these since missing them being in the shop when I first started playing.

 

Sadly I'm at work and can't play it yet :( .

Supposedly I received a T-29  from the first crate you have. Can't see it in garage.

 

What's the deal with this thing ? I don't understand. 

 

 

Second, why the decorations have chinese text ?

Yeah, and you get bonus stuff mostly usable for Chinese tanks if you don't get one. Wouldn't recommend going on a spending spree just to get one, especially considering the China-specific bonuses.

 

Probably not correct, judging from other posts on the forums (getting e.g. Soviet tanks with non-Soviet packages). I'd wait and see how it actually works.

How do you know that you got it then?

Does it show in your account on the WOT website?
