The hype, oh sorry I meant the type 59, apparently on the NA server this was snapped in 14 seconds, just what is it about the Type 59 that makes it special, and are there any T8 mediums that can hands down be as good as this thing?

 

As for the event missed it, and in one way glad I did.

15:15 Added after 1 minute

Here is a vid of everyone's favourite unicom doing what no one else can in it:trollface:

 

Please don't take that to seriously, lol

It used to be good, it got a story of being pulled after like half a day for having been too good, then got powercrept and is now the (sometimes golden) carrot dangled in front of players.

 

Nowadays it seems to be nothing special except if you got the golden version (which also was bought out minutes after the market opened) cause with that one you also got a golden color name in the team list :)

Type 59 isn't a bad tank. But there is no point in getting the Gold version. Except SEA, where Type 59 Gold has some crazy bonuses, on any other server Type 59 Gold is just a standard Type 59 with a bad camo job and your name displayed with golden letters...Yeah...nope.

 

Still, the old standard Type 59 kept its decent credit making property and in proper hands can do a lot of damage. Powercrept it may be, but...preferential MM, good credit earner, good trainer. If anything... overpriced for what it is in our days.

You'd be able to spot a golden TOG from the other spawn.

Normal one is better. Why? Because it doesn't make your eyes ache when playing it.

 

I got the normal one from lootboxes right on my birthday ty WG:girl: Only bought a small amount also. And i'm glad i got that when i did instead of having to pick this horrid, ugly thing up for 25k gold

Today, nothing.

 

It still has it's reputation from a time when it could meet tier V mediums in battle but not tier IX mediums (only tier IX heavies and TDs).  When a tier VII heavy was considered to be equal to a tier VIII medium, and when the matchmaker would put eight of one tank on the same team.

 

So you would have a wolfpack of mobile, armoured medium tanks, matched against heavies a tier lower bullying mediums three tiers lower.

 

Now all it has is an ability to make credits while firing full premium ammo.

I don't need a golden one, but love to have the normal version. It's still great.

Still wish I had one... - then again I mainly want it cause I like the chinese lines and with this one I'd have the complete set (well, this and the clan wars one...)

The gun for the Type 59 lets it down slightly.

 

It's not bad by any means but it's ultimately less accurate than say Progetto and T-44 100.

 

Also Type 59 is the Tiananmen Square tank, it's the model that parked in front of that dude with shopping bags...

Type 59 gold is same on SEA as every other Wargaming's server.

Actually, I think they were of the Type 80 varient, But I'm just a Submariner so may be way off.

Type 59 is an ok tank, the last set of buffs really helped it. Having -7 degrees on that hull is alreet. Still get ammo racked too much
