I understand it would be rare, but it would still happen. Could you please add it to the historical filter so that the golden version appear as a regular Type 59?

 

It can be added to feedback, but I don't imagine it would be on a high priority consider the probability of this happening to most players :)

Can you please turn it off?

Just like I don't want to see pink tanks driving around, neither do I want to see golden tanks driving around :sceptic:

They sold only 1000. Chances are pretty low you encounter them on a regular basis. Just ignore them.

Personally I played a few games to try and see/admire one ;)

When I found out that I had overslept the Golden TYPE-59, I was upset at first.
Then I found out the price (25K gold) and upset less.
Then I remembered I had a regular TYPE-59 and almost regained my composure.
 
Now I will wait for new arrivals and I am sure that I will not miss what I want to buy. However, I'm not sure that WG will offer me something that I don't have. Is that PzIIJ?
 
But how beautiful this TYPE-59 GOLD is!

Dude, most tanks in the game are not historical.

 

Atleast they look historical. Tell me one sane tank commander that would paint his tank in gold rather than regular camouflage colors?

GZ for spending 83,40 € for 25k gold, be you a Type 59 G owner or a cash cow who didn't make in time.

 

Back in the day we had to pay it 28€ and even got two nerfs as emotional features, for free.

100 every hour would sell faster. 

 

 

 

its not about "selling faster" which might be true; its about "having EVEN A CHANCE to buy if you are not out of work or 12 years old".....

I reskinned my type with aslains modpack he has a lot of alternative skins for tanks.

Costs nothing and looks no different to the G version.

Of course you are the only one that can see the dragon gun and the gold finish but that could be an advantage.

That's what the people complaining about seeing golden Type 59 G as "historical" need! A mod, but the exact opposite.

A mod turning Type 59G into regular Type 59.

Yet ADDING type 59 gold was a priority. It should appear as a regular type 59 without the dragon and gold colour when unhistorical visuals are disabled same for skorpion G skin. After all I am not aware of any historical reference to such a tank?

1000 sold out in 3 minutes and 10 seconds, if all had (of course they did not because they already had the gold) bought 25k of regular gold - those 1000 tanks would have cost £72k in just 3 mins 10 seconds.

 

Nice work WG that will keep your bean counters happy.

I'd suspect it'll appear in a longer term offer during Tankfest, so you probably don't have long to wait.

People focus type 59 gold because want to make some gold  jewelry if after shooting it, some parts fall apart.

So you'll be dependant to your sunglasses to be able to handle the Type 59G shiness :B

We may say this or that about WOT or WG, but their marketing department is up to the task and probably keeping this game alive.

 

 

Just follow the "level of outrage" and see what items should be offered again in some future "limited offers" or "xmas loot boxes", ka-ching ka-ching :D

 

Btw nice event! Thumbs up!

Weird that WG sold the most wanted tank at 3rd. Not much left to wait for.
