Ive had the Type-59 since 2012 christmas and its been alot of fun having it, but i never play this game anymore. (Which is sad, the last part.)

 

I used to love this tank, but novadays it seems anyone just goes right through it (the turret in general) when shooting normal AP/APCR at me.

 

Even if they dont shoot gold, they still pen most of the times when the turret is angled (to somewhat degree) and i cant have a proper "hulldown" position / aggressive play.

 

Is there any way to make this tank more fun to play with? Ive had alot of negative impacts when playing with this tank, as people will either praise for its rarity or be toxic towards me for just playing it.. :L

 

Any suggestions?

It's not the strong tank it once was and after the Christmas boxes promotion it isn't so rare either. The toxicity may stem from those who are jealous that they didn't get one. I don't have one and can't suggest specific ways of playing it but the T-34-3 now has the same armour model so I'd say play it as a regular medium; don't rely on a hull-down position, look to flank, use its mobility to make shots rather than trying to trade.

Well they buffed the Type to the point its playable now. No need to complain.

 

Gun handling went from horrible to decent.

Ammo capacity increased dramatically.

 

Its ok now. The special MM makes it a good & fun tank to play.

 

Certain tanks will attract more gold shells. Nothing you can do about it. Deal with it.

5 actually. 5/10 format against Tier 9's and 8's is the worst MM it can get, and it gets it often. At least the Type 59 has the pen to somewhat deal with it. For the T-34-3... its HEAT or nothing. 

 

Nothing scares me more than seeing 5 top tier enemy heavies, all ST-I, Obj. 257, E75 etc. Even with HEAT those tanks are a pain.
