How about stick your FACE up to IT... (you know where), not interested and NEVER were about the Type, its nothing special (never actually was). Type is a WG HYPE, nothing more.

Don't even bother to get this tank! WG have nerf Type 59 so many times that it's now useless to another tier 8 meds. Yes the gun is bit better than years ago, but the ARMOR and SPEED is totally gone!

 

I bought Type 59 back in 2013 because then this tank was T-54 on tier 8-9 matches. But now those days are long gone...

 

T,

As I see you can enter queue as solo player, but I still didn't get in the game... and when I do I wouldn't know what am I doing anyway. :D

One player out of 15 kept timing out, so all others had to be bounced all the time. Not working. Make it work in game.

You mean when it used to be able to bully tier 5 tanks.

 

So terrible that it now only sees as low as tier 6. :rolleyes:

i take it all this face business is not doing so well? time to bring the big guns to give it a shock paddle treatment?

it wont work because like it was mentioned before the event is biased toward top clans and players who are a tiny majority. 

normal players know they don't have a chance of winning it so they wont bother. fail again wg.

you would generate more interest if you give a number of types to random players as a lottery, then everyone would have a go believing they have some chance of winning.

If you want to know how the Type59 performs, just get a T-44. The performance is roughly similar.

 

Type59 is one of the most overrated tanks in this game for some reason, it's honestly pretty average and nothing special anymore. Even that thing has been powercreeped.

Well once I got over the initial timing out of people for the first 30 and hour

- much more time than I'd usually spend on something to figure out whether it was fun -

It kinda works with the Special battle mode and the game client in a pretty good way.

 

Of course joining up solo there is no way it is going to be fun to be matched up against clans that have signed up together.

If you play solo this is total fail. You wait forever for match to be created because someone is always timed out, half of people don't even know they have to open the game after match is created, and if you by any miracle get into battle, you will most likely lose. :facepalm:

Even if this was the case I wouldn't want a Type 59 :facepalm:
Like Speczt mentioned the Type 59 is nerfed to death.

I have a Type 59, however even I didn't have one, I wouldn't buy one as things stand nowadays :sceptic:

There are better alternatives out there than the Type 59!!!

This is classic wargaming, they try palm of a tank that is now crap. Players paid good money for it and it was nerfed to f**k, something that should never happen once you have parted with your money. No one would buy a car with a 2 ltr engine, only to take it back and have a 1.6 put in because it was too fast. I don't trust wargaming on anything they say, and all this crap is targeted at clan's who are in a minority when it comes to %

of players. Wargaming will never have a tournament player base like league of legends because they don't give a crap about the game. Too many so-called unicums use hack mods, which because they aren't illegal in game are allowed to get away with it, leaving players that don't use these mods, at a disadvantage. The game just continues to slide downwards with players leaving in their droves. Out of all the people that used to play this game that I know or are related to, I am the only one that still plays, and I hardly play at all anymore, the game is flawed and wargaming have their heads where the sun don't shine, trying to bail out a sinking ship with a bucket.

The Type 59 is still being hyped even though the tank is overrated. It's being hyped by WG even though it's been power-creeped. The hype and the artificial scarcity is kept alive just so people put in extra effort/time and possibly money in trying to obtain it.

 

Kudos WG.

Actually, drive t-44 and think how'd it be if it were without mobility. That's type59

One Type 59 for however many people will enter this thing, no thank you. I have a bigger chance of getting syphilis than to win that tank.
