for the "lucky" once who are blessed with this tank, how do you play this thing? haven't played in ages, took it for a spin because I needed the credits and it's absolutely rage inducing. wth is with the aiming? WG keeps on introducing new OP premium tanks and neglecting the old ones. it's like we haven't paid for this piece of crapand no one cares because it can't be obtained anymore, at least on the store.

Damm,now that you are talking about that i dont know if they buffed already the type or if its in the next patches. I m a bit lost now.

It hasn't been buffed for sure, I really hope they do something about it next patch or so.

 

it's also one of the reasons that I will never buy another premium tank. 

 

Introduce OP tank-get money-nerf it till it's unplayable. repeat. WG's motto

Type 59 owners are pretty rare these days, they have been for a while. It's no worse than most of the other T8 premium meds though, you're just hankering back to the old days where you could wolf pack a lot of T5 and 6 with them like school bullies. But it's had it's days, even though it gets pref MM it still mostly sees far superior t8 and 9 tanks all the time so like most T8 only a few really hold their own in this new MM.

Don't play it, MM is exceptionally bad for t8smm tanks. Always vs t9 and t8 abominations like defender. If you want to do any damage you have to shoot gold and then you will not make any credits.

bullies? this thing has been nerfed for years...I got it after it's major nerf so I don't know bullying anything. it's had it's days? does that mean I have to be content with it being dogshit? aight.

I am aware of how dogshit it is but I was forced to play it for credits since I need that 30b. sigh

You have T34, play that instead. You will face t10 all day long, but at least you don't have to shoot prem ammo, so you can make some credits.

read somewhere that they are looking into buffing it a bit

 

well, it needs:

 

engine power

better turret

better dispersion on the move

aim time better

more pen.

 

will never happen ofc since wg does not sell it anymore

So you weren't about then when there were 5 per side rampaging through the teams  where the battles were decided by who had the best type 59 players. The fought t5 at in the early days and nothing could touch them as they were almost always top tier.

the truth is though even if they were at their best they still wouldn't be any where near good enough for todays MM.

I play it quite frequently.

It's a slowassmedium tank with good turret,

abysmal aim time and accuracy.

I don't mind the speed or armour, but the damn acc and aim time..the target is gone by the time I fully aim which still has a chance to miss.

I certainly did not pay 15 euros for my type. even if that was true it doesn't justify the current state of the vehicle.

Contact support, they can probably restore it, you just need enough credits and free garage slot.

Shoot gold from the start, only if there are soft tanks left, switch to ap.

And aim all thw way, and stay calm if even than, the shell goes anywhere.

 

For credits, play an other premium tank.
