Hello all,

So as the topic says you can get type 59 from gift boxes. I myself been hunting this tank for years, right after it got pulled out of the store and give special tank label and got it from my first 3 boxes I bought today.

 

So my question is, what do you guys think... is it okay for WG to give Type 59 so easily away. I can legitimately say that I robbed WG by getting type 59 for £5.

I made a poll just out of curiosity, to see what others think.

 

Cheers

Sure.

 

I am an old owner of the type. It was an horrible tank for a long time, and after the most recent buff it is quite nice again. But not OP. So, why not share it with the community. It's quite a balanced tank that won't mess up the game balance.

Everyone i know who has bought any boxes has got the Type 59.

 

I personally bought the £17 worth of boxes, and in it i got:

 

Type 59

Sentinal

T28 thingy

6000 gold

7 days prem

and enough decorations to get to level 9.!!!

 

 

I mean, for god sake, that was a damn good deal, I'll take that everyday.

 

I tell my mate at work, and he buys some boxes, and FFS he gets a Type 59 and loads of gold, i tell a guy in the clan, and he buys some and HE GETS THE TYPE 59!!

 

I then go into a game with the type, and there are 3 on each side, then i realise, this is not a rare tank anymore, the rarest tank will become the Defender...

I think the Defender will become the new tank that is given away in competitions and the Type 59 will go on sale shortly.

WEll I dont think so. On the other hand it lost ALL its value as a special reward tank, not that that ever really mattered.

It isn't easy at all. It's a matter of small chances. I've opened over 50 boxes and still no tier 8 premium...

Don't have one, don't care about it either way. If I would get to choose I would pick either the lorr.40 or patriot over the type 59. Probably because I started the game after the type was the hype.

I guess some will be dissapointed though because it's not very special anymore.

With the current fucked up T8 SMM, Defender being the new type59 and overall power creep I don't see much of a problem in more type59's.. It's not like they would be raping tier 5's in masses like way back in time :teethhappy:

Idk, I just felt like Type 59 shouldn't be thrown at everyone like that. After all most people seen Type as a special tank, but now it's like an extra from extra boxes :O

I got mine today, plus 2 spare ones! I'd been after one for years, and then 3 come along within 10 crates! The spare 2 appear to have been converted to gold, so I'm now wedged up. Would have loved a Lorraine but I'm happy with what dropped.

Wanted the Lorraine and got it! Getting the Type 59 was a nice bonus on top of the crapload of gold, credits and premium time.

The drop rate seems quite high for such a legendary tank. I'd have expected about 4-5 signaled on the forum, but a consequent amount of players here got one. Or even any other Tier 8. And that infamous T-28, which is utterly broken and shouldn't be available.

Am... Am I still special for getting one in my 10th box over 11? :(
