Type 59 will become the most overpowered tank ever. WG is buffing a tank that already can't see 10 tanks and is basically better than most T8 MTs already and we can't even buy the /%&#"(/#& tank?!?

 

Meanwhile WG thinks buffing the FV4202 was a little too much...thing sees T10 CONSTANTLY. Don't even get me started on testing the changes and "leaking" them so people would be tempted to buy it on discount. Well, too much hoping for a British tank to be overpowered.

 

to top it off it gets more ammo?! just insane. More ammo alone would be fine. I get that it is annoying but now... most overpowered tank ever. :facepalm:

"and is basically better than most T8 MTs already"

 

I'm finding it very hard to take the rest of your post seriously.

Pfffffttt. They did not even give it the now common "-10 gun depression" fix. So not even close yet.

Well, adding extra ammo isn't really a buff to combat effectieveness - just means I can take more AP shells for when I get a Top tier game (those 1 in 100 times) and keep the same amount of APCR as I have now which is enough for T9 games - so when I am top tier I wont be forced to fire APCR cos I ran out of AP(like I had to when I got my Fadins medal in it - I didnt mean to shoot the E25 with APCR - just had to  as I had run out of AP!! - I am a bit sad that it will be far more difficult to get another Fadins in it now though - almost makes me want to oppose the buff... almost...) - just means I will make more credits,which is nice but wont make me kill you any faster if we meet up. As for the aimtime etc - it badly needs it - it's not any way near as OP as it once was - and I have done a lot better WR wise in some tech tree t8 mediums, so like the other posters I assume that you are either a forum troll OP or really dont have a clue - in either case I really shouldn't post a reply - but since when has common sense had anything to do with forums, so I will feed this troll this one time lol ;-)

Wow, a genuine person playing a 44% botting account, I'm impressed!

 

And with an opinion on balancing nonetheless!

 

Double Whammy!:teethhappy:

 

Only Tier 8 tank is a premium, check!

Hey Jotneblod!

 

The Type 59 was a great tank when it came out, but that was quite some time ago. Since then it fell behind the curve and in the current mategame it is definitely not the most competitive Tier VIII medium. It was in need of a retouch and now it is getting it. If you feel that the changes are too much, you can submit your feedback in the Public Test Discussion thread here: http://forum.worldof...a-france-japan/

 

That being said, I took the liberty of looking at your profile and noticed that you don't really play the higher tiers (Tier 6+)  and in fact your only tier VIII tank is the 8,8 cm Pak 43 Jagdtiger. I think in order to form a valid opinion about the type 59 you should be a bit more familiar with the higher battle tiers where it is played and either play it yourself or against it to understand how it fits into the current meta. In other words, I would like to encourage you to play some more and gather a bit more experience before forming your opinion :)

There are no trolls in WOT. Or was it bots? Or both?

Oh, Type theme again...

 

Type 59 - Most overpowered tank ever

 

It was, for the first six months, a year or so when it came on 15th September 2011 in 6.9 patch. Before the first silent nerf done to the premium tank, a massive one. In that short starting period it was an absolute king of the game, always top tier (fought against Tier 6, even 5), impenetrable, better gun etc etc. The games were decided by which team has more T59's.

 

That's when it achieved it's notoriety. Soon it was over, the hammer was so hard that during the years WG ups it a bit, never to it's original glory.

 

Now it's OK-ish. Being premium, you always earn, but that's all.
