well done Wg on improving the gun hnadling of the type 59, it shoots so much better now.

 

next fix the engine. it had the speed and acceleration of a heavy atm.

 

give more horsepower or lower ground resistance to make it move like a td and make it become usefull/relevant in the game again

 

edit:

 

and if u could ifx the fact that every 4th shot knock out my turret rotation....... that would be great

It deserved the buff it got, it's now among the best T8 mediums and gets to avoid T10 matches (even if that isn't a huge advantage anymore).

 

(Even if it got an engine/terrain resistance buff, there'd be people asking why it wasn't making them a sandwich.)

I've never had a problem with the Type 59 performance apart from the lack of sandwich maker.

And if it got one, you'd be whining on the forums on why it wasn't [edited] your [edited] for free, too. :trollface:

I tried it on the test server when it first came out and had a good laugh at the expense of all the people who bought it thinking it was the new Type 59.

Yeah it was such a surprise that a T8 medium with 122mm gun had completely garbage gun handling lol despite the fact that it was ten times better than T-44 with 122:D It still surprises me after playing for so many years  that people can have such a ridiculous expectations. Anyone with a bit of common sense should have expected that it wont be shooting like obj 140...

It's still a T8 medium tank, though, so they couldn't really make it that strong. 

 

Defenders have problems enough with the TVP VTU already!

Look, while I can symphatize about the T-34-3 and FV4202, you have a goddamn Defender, Search. :facepalm:

NEVER! i dont play my Defender much as its dirty. also right now i enjoy my T-34-3, not saying its GOOD but ill take it over any other of my tier 8 mediums due to not facing tier 10.

Hmm... gotta check t59 now. Later was prefering super-pershing to type any day. But perhaps now its a good match.

Mobility of this medium is atrocious, it needs to have a more powerful engine (and I believe it did have in the past before the huge nerf). As said by the OP it has heavy tank mobility at the moment.

 

Gun handling is finally usable.

Inspired by this topic I decided to take my T59 for a spin and it really is a usable premium tank now.

Now if it had at least decent medium mobility it would be almost good.

Come on, this medium can't be faster than Defender Heavy and Patriot Heavy. That would be imbalanced given it has less pen, less dpm and less armor ;)

Mobility could be better of course, but I am not looking for a perfect tank. Before the patch it was pure frustration. Now you can actually aim and something and have a good chance of hitting it. And you have more ammo, so you can blindshoot and spam ammo as a tactic. In fact, my premium ammo use went completely down after the patch. I mostly don't use it at the moment. There are some occasions where you can't escape a confrontation with some heavily armored tier 9 or the defender and then you switch to premium ammo. But mostly you do not have to any more due to having the ability to be able to hit something and the ability to spam regular ammo. Not every shell counts any longer.

 

It has become a workable tank again. You have some decent'ish turret armor. You have a decent'sh gun. Decent'ish view range. Decent'ish camo. 

 

It kind of works again. I didn't want the type 59 back of the old days, I wanted to be able to drive the tank and think "that was a nice game".

 

That had't happened for a few years.
