2018 loot boxes  , i bought 211 boxes thinking that i would finally get my hands on type 59 , but like always my luck is garbage !! , i was really hopping for another chance to get type 59 , but with all those leaks e75 ts , obj 703 ii , progetto 46...etc , my hope if getting the hype 59 is decreasing !! and i know for sure it won't be in the advent calendar .... so i just want to know who still want to get it !!!

 

like why in earth they won't add it in the prem shop !! , like i myself every months i spent money on world of tanks , bcz i really love this game . but just tell me the excuse that prevent to buy the type 59 from the prem shop like the other tanks !!

 

just give us and me a valid reason .

 

and i hope this topic not get closed by the moderators and happy new year everyone 

 

and thnx for reading it and trying to understand my point here 

Same here, it's the only tank in the game that i still want and would buy if they made it available. All the other prem tanks - i either have them or i'm not interested in them (this including the double barreled thingy).

My guess might be obvious, but likely because it would be troublesome for the matchmaker, and there are apparently quite a few who happily spend all their dosh in an attempt to get it.

No it wouldn't. Granted lots of people would buy it, and for a few days it would be a flood of them in the MM, but it would die out in less then a week, once people realise it's not some OP monster, but merely a decent tier 8 med.

I am going to assume that you are not married

no im not , but actually i built a house and im about to get my driving license and plus im working on the whole marriage thing 

but i never spent that amount of money on any game , like what i did with the type 59 , after that i stopped buying , i have a life and im 25 years old . so yeah

but we all have the right to know why or what is the reason for type 50 not being added in the shop , and i see the reason here im 50% with it , and the other 50% still with adding the type 59 in the shop , but like psychobear said :

Fair point. My opinion is that it wouldn't cause significant problems and it would wear off shortly, but that is only my opinion, no real facts to base it upon, so that's that.

Although it is really a bummer that it's the only "rare" tank they've never actually put on sale after it was withdrawn from the shop, not even for a goddamn day (the 59G in the black market doesn't count since it's a different tank and the 2017 lootboxes don't count either, since that is basically lottery, not actually a sale).

What can i say... #feelsbadwg

Why bother getting married?

Just give your house to someone you don't like

The type 59 is basically crap. If you are a collector I get you may want one, but honestly, once you do, it will only collect dust in your garage because it is power crept so badly it would do nicely in tier six.

 

It was pretty good before Italian tanks came along and meds like Cent 5/1.

 

So yeah, it got power creeped. Now it's still not bad, but just mediocre.

Its understandable why its not in the loot boxes (I was never lucky enough to get one) and the fact the 252/Defender and all the others. 

 

Lots of people have them and WG are actively trying to reduce the gold reserves people have, so they dont have to offer the gold equivelent of them.

I think T-34-3 is closer to the actual tech tree Chinese meds gameplay-wise. High aplha makes Chinese meds - or at least it made them in the past.

The more you hype yourself up about it, the more disappointed you'll be when you finally get it...

 

I can understand it if you have almost every other tank and want it purely to complete the collection.

But if you're expecting an OP premium tank, you'll be disappointed.

 

I bought 12 boxes and got thit in the second to last box and went ballistic.I screamed so hard my neighbours came to see who was killing me.

And im still struggling with playing it. (OK, I'm a very average player, but if it was OP, i should be doing much better in it.)

It's very average, probably a tad below average. Power creeped to hell even with the recent buff.

It's main issue is that it is sluggish, think Cent 5/1 sluggish. It personally feel it could be a magnitude better if the Power to weight ratio improved to above 20

 

The Wiki says "Considered one of the best tier 8 premium tanks" but  I strongly suspect that text hasn't been updated since it was removed from sale in 2012

View PostHAMMOD_95, 

just give us and me a valid reason .

 

Its a horrid crap of a tank, i totally want a full refund for mine, so at least other poor players dont get f-d up the way it happened to me. A very simple reason.

No offence, but I think it is a good thing they didn't put the Hype 59 into this year's lootboxes.

Saves people the trouble of wasting all their savings trying to get it and failing to do so.

 

Seriously: consider why you buy the lootboxes and if it are the tanks you're after, and if it isn't better to just wait until they pop up in the premium store.

only Type-59 that is somewhat worth collecting is the Gold version since it's actually unique and rare

unless you look at the new Christmas sticky thread,  then all of them are gold :)

it USED to be an amazing tank.  but now it isn't.  powercreep at its best.

The 59 was annoying many years ago, in the very early days of the game, especially those gang bang toons of them, when we were all learning how to play, and the huge MM differences meant that the 59 could easily blow away your piffling little much lower tier tank, and few had progressed to higher tiers.

I can't see that they have more than curiosity/collector value now.

tbh with u about my investment !! it didnt pay off and i got [edited] about , be in my place for a moment just hear me out , that particular tank is the only and most wanted tank that i really need to get it , like i watched ppl literally getting it by only 10 and 15 boxes , so i thought it is 100% guraunteed ( i will have it for sure ) but i bought 211 boxes !! i swear 211 boxes and i didnt get it !! how would that make u feel 

seriously i spent 70% of month salary just to put my hands on 2 years ago !! and guess what , i got 1 big SHINY middle finger in my face !! ofc it got me mad , ofc it made **** for an entire month thinking why would i trust and do this stupid thing , gambling !!

 

Do not gamble, loot boxes is about the maybe win tanks, but about the cheap gold and creadits and maybe nice skins.

Yes, and I remember often Type 59 agree to drive together in packs to rip the enemies to pieces.

Fun days, now it's just nostalgia.
