Well holy sh*t.

 

I'm not sure what surprises me more, the fact that they're selling this gaudy looking thing or the fact that people are actually buying them at an insane rate. 

 

25,000 gold?! I'm guessing serb's space station needs an extension. 

 

Definitely not interested in picking one up myself. 

 

Seeing as they sold this thing for gold I'm wondering if they'll start selling other 'rare' tanks for gold as well. A worrying trend I fear.

Had the chance to buy it was about to press the buy button but just couldn't justify that much gold on a tank I already have but different colour

The actual price on tanks.gg is over 155k gold. Just one thing, was the tank available for gold or credits? and how many were up for grabs?

Probably not, because people already payed for "gold" in loot boxes.

Yes, but now if they sell more 'rare' tanks for a lot of gold they've drained the gold reserves of a lot of people who may well now suddenly buy more gold to get more 'rare' tanks. :coin:

Easiest 100k euros WG ever made. Already have type 59, even if I haven't I would have never paid 25k in gold !!

 

Hope the owners of these tanks thought this through. Although 3 minutes doesnt give you much time to think of anything lol. They will be arty focused and yoloed by so many jealous players.

And that's different from any of the other tanks they regularly sell for gold because...?

25k gold is currently £71.36 (about €80) ... how many people spent more than that on Christmas boxes chasing a regular Type 59?
