It's not just a reskin. It also has a sign on the back of the tank inviting everyone to single them out on the battlefield for being such a tool to buy a Golden Type 59.

 

Hahah. I was thinking this as I watched them sell out in minutes. An easy $40k fow WG.

Checkout 1:38 in this BlackPink K Pop video... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHNzOHi8sJs

 

Tier VI T-34-85M with BlackPink "cammo."

 

You could even sell an all-girl Blackpink crew for it.

 

I'd pay credits for that....

 

I was really triggerred that they did THAT to a glorious and dignified T-34/85. It awakened my inner Communist.

I understand it's only rarer tanks that are on sale  (i.e. not available in game or not permenantly in premium shop), do I doubt you'll see S1 or WZ-120-1 FT.

 

What if it's gonna be sold for credits though? That's still gonna be quite the catch for alot of people.

Didn't realise the KV2R is from a cartoon as well. Oh well. But the edelweis? Not sure it looks all that tank like in my books. I was just disappointed a t92 couldn't pen the back of it or the other one.

 

It's from Warhammer 40k; the 'R' in this case is for Ragnarok. We have the Edelweiss and Shameless, but why stop there? WG should bring out the R3000/T08A2 just to add to the ridiculousness.

Meanwhile in certain other regions people complain about not getting a 59G after it sold out in 15 seconds *cough* US EU *cough*

Next up is the T3 Sexton for 500K. Very dissapointing offer - but still cheap I guess. I bought it just to add to the collection.

Now it's the Sexton I for 500k credits. They're selling like hotcakes for some reason.

 

Edit:

Sold out in 2 mins 10 secs.

It's only 500k credits, basically tier V price. Unlike FCM36PaK40 yesterday which was the price of a tier IX tank.

 

A good garage-sitter, but based on experience I prefer the tech-tree Sexton over the prem Sexton.

If it hits...

 

It also has more radio range and almost double the HE penetration, in exchange for a weaker engine.

 

Doesn't really matter much since they rarely hit anyway.

IMHO it would have been better for them to spread the total number of vehicles available by replenishing every 1 or 2 hours over the 12 hour period.

I'm sure there are a lot of people missing out just because their game client took too long to load :teethhappy:

So do we assume everything worth owning will be 2 or 4 am for a chunk of the server based on the first 2 days?

Nothing about this promotion seems worth the trouble. You could stay up all night, but if they're doing nonsense where tanks sell out in minutes (or seconds!), it's essentially a lottery weighted towards anyone with a good connection, as opposed to anything like a normal purchase.

 

With absolutely no warning of what's going on sale, no way am I going to waste my time hanging around for two weeks ready to login for the chance of possibly buying something I want, if anything like that comes up at all.

 

To be honest just about the only thing that would really put me out would be an opportunity for us regular schmuck to buy a 907.

I wouldn't mind that. It'll probably be hilarious. Don't think they'll offer CW tanks though.

Yeah, something tells me none of the Clam Wars tanks will be on offer. Just gimmicky shit.

 

Sure, some of it might be broken (LeFfhfhfhfhf for sale?) or a bad idea, but there's not going to be very many conventionally serviceable tanks in there. The blackdog may well turn out to be something of an exception.
