Frankly, I don't really get the frenzy over players spending copious amounts money on hoping to get the Type59.

It's only slightly better then a Mod 1 cz it has PMM and if you want a PMM tank, you can always buy FCM, IS6, 112, T-34-3 (for chinese crew training) or the Super Pershing.

Spare me the other 'benefits' of a Type 59 as they only trully matter if the player is very accomplished in it.

You can massacre noobie players who got lucky and pulled a Type 59 by the dozen.

Anyone else agree that all this fuss about getting Type 59 is stupid?

And no, I'm not butthurt cz i didn't get one, I bought 3 packages and got 3 packages as a gift, they had 4k Gold in it, which pretty much makes the price come out even. The level 5 ornaments were a bonus.

Those type59 threads are popping out more than arty threads back in the day...

 

sorry bud but you do sound a little bit butt hurt..

 

Would you have written the same thing if you were gifted a type59 from these boxes?

 

you sound even more bitter than us who didn't get one while wishing for one.. except we kinda moved on..

I give a crap because I'd like one. I don't give enough of a crap to start my own thread about it though, so I guess OP must give more of a crap than that.

 

Yes to all the things you say are bad about it but I wanted one before it got buffed and was truly awful in the then current meta. Why? It's a great looking tank and I like it for what it is. As it goes it appears I'm one of the few who didn't open a box containing one - maybe next year.

 

Merry Christmas, OP. :)

I do because I wanted one for a long time.

 

It's a tier 8 medium that has low tier bully levels of armour, has a very strong turret that can challenge most tier 9 guns and has -7 gun depression which is more than any other 'dome' style turreted tank. 

 

Plus it's decently mobile and now has pretty good gun handling.

 

As regular tier 8 medium it would still be very solid, as limited MM it's very good IMO. I feel it can easily challenge most other tier 8s and then you realise they see tier 10 and you don't.

 

So I was very happy to pick one up and happy to spend the cash, especially as the final 'value' of goods I got was about 3 times higher than what I paid.

Think I'll start my own thread as I don't have one either...

 

But I played three dames this morning,  Deliberately killed the brand new 59 driver (WN8 of 300 and 2K games)   

 

All because I'm Butt hurt :)

Wow, I see a bunch of people really need to go through basic psychological school again if you really deduced that I'm butt hurt cz I didn't get one.

Well, I see you don't believe me, but I don't give a crap about that either. Check out my tank list what premiums I own and how far did I take the chinese line, I'm only at the Type 34. What the hell would I need the type 59 for?

I have/had the Panther 88, T34, IS6, Patton KR, CDC and the Blackdog for tier 8 farming tanks along with the Excelsior, the Skoda T40 and the Chinukai.

That should make it clear that I absolutely don't NEED the type 59 for either farming or crew training.

Ever since the new MM rolled in I have thrown out the IS6, the T34, the Excelsior, and the Patton KR as I don't need them and had quite enough of them being outclassed by the powercreep sh*t.

I am butthurt about the now retarded MM though, that's why I'd trashed said premiums, cz they have all become obsolete or downright useless in tier 10 battles.

LOL, FCM, IS6, 112, T-34-3 are crippled SMM tanks that are terrible in current MM, you have to be crazy to waste your money on these tanks.

After latest gun handling buff type59 is the best tier 8 med that doesn't see tier 10s, fun to play and best credit maker in the game.

Hey I'm relaxed, dude, and whether you believe me or not I really am NOT butthurt that I didn't get a Type59.

I'm much better at earning credits with my Blackdog which (I may as well say it) ACTUALLY benefits from this shitty new 3-5-7 MM system as I can get more assist DMG without having to shoot anything cz there is more HP to farm and I don't have to worry about weak pen or shooting premium rounds.

 

I do agree with LEO though, old PMM tier 8 premium tanks have totally become obsolete and useless, hence why I've thrown out my IS6 otherwise I would have kept it.

When I see an enemy player in Type 59 this Christmas season, I say to myself: free damage.

And I am rarely wrong, they are like rabbits caught in the headlights, doesn't matter what cr@p tank I am playing myself.

Well no one thinks you are sore at not having one.  Not anyone of us.  No sireee.  After all you wren't hoping to get one when you bought your boxes were you?

 

As for the benefits... It's hard for those without one to understand just how many credits the Type 59 makes.

The 112 isnt crippled at all, the t-34-3 is viable too. The type 59s uniqueness/aura for me has completely gone now after this event. Im pretty much in agreement with the Op ( although i wouldnt start a post about it ) the tanks nothing special imo.

Pretty much this.. I know it's not all that but for me it's the only true "all-rounder" med at tier 8 with pmm so just for that it's worth it's weight in gold.

No, I was kinda hoping to pull a Skorpion or a Patriot, but I got 4k Gold from the 6 boxes I got (3 bought myself and 3 gifts), so I'm okay with that. I didn't put much faith in getting a tier 8 premium to begin with, I'm not that lucky.

And I'm perfectly happy with the benefit I have with my Blackdog thank you, which is that it DOES see tier 10 matches where I can spotfarm more HP irrelevant what kind of a gun I have. I don't even take premium rounds in it. It's much more fun to shoot HESH.

If I could, I'd sell you mine.

I've had the Type 59 for 5,5 years now, and yeah, back then it _was_ a very stronk tenk. Then they nerfed its soft stats, and then came the overall powercreep, and the meta changed several times since then.

 

For hundreds of battles, I drove the '59 consistently at around 59% Winrate. In the last couple of years that rate dropped like a brick out of a plane. Now it's down to just 50.8% in my case. Driving the 59 is not much fun at all anymore. Yes you do get preferential MM, but your tank is really only a tier 7.5.
