I've made mine decision today very easy. ;)

I do not like to play with tanks without turrets, no matter how good or bad they are.

I know the tank can be bought in game for gold but again, the website shop bundle forces people to buy gold.

 

Imagine a scenario where someone is away for Xmas and can't log into the game. They are either forced to buy the gold package or keep their wallet closed.

I don't have much gold. I plan to buy a few crates, when they'll be available, which will give me some more gold. Some of which I can use to buy interesting advent calendar tanks with gold. So until then, I'm happy to see crappy deals.

To any who are thinking about getting this tank: Don't. With the introduction of the idiotic wheeled cars, the momentum of the game has increased to such a degree that it is incredibly hard to make this tank work, since the good camo value counts for little anymore. As to the rest, the speed is nowhere near enough to escape from light tanks once you're spotted, armour is non-existant so you'll enjoy those wheeled-tank HE more, the rate of fire is absolutely pathetic, and the much-hyped gun is, in fact, the Leo 1's gun before this year's buff, which means it has a definite tendency to troll. I can think of few tanks that are as thoroughly out of meta as this thing. If Wargaming had any sense of shame, they would stop selling it completely or at least massively buff it. But well, they don't, and they won't.

Tank itself is pretty nice, price high because why not.

As soon as you get spotted, it's a one way trip to Valhalla. :trollface:

Nope, wait for the E-25, it's basically the same play style but a superior vehicle tier-for-tier *AND* it's got pref-mm.

I do love this tank, its fast, nimble, German acc, its a ninja but a paper, but you can reallocate really fast (but than again i also do love my Raumpanzer:D). If you dont need the stuff just buy it with gold. Looking forward for next week:popcorn:

Cent 5/1 is great, i got gifted the Primo but RAAC suits me better, the hull armor makes the difference. Type 59 is good, but i would prefer to play Mod 1. Type 59 days are gone, its just this hype around it.

Not spending another penny until you sort out this mess of a game. Yesterday 15-3 losses nearly all session......absolute joke. 'It's random'......no it isn't....statistically something is dodgy.


 

'Git gud scrub' ...you say, just how? wrestling with the RNG turned up to 50%? and teams of what can only be described as mindless buffoons in zombie mission mode. Loaded cheat mode gold to fight the RNG....nope.....crit no damage, crit no damage, we dinged 'em. Impossible.

 

I went downstairs and took it out on the missus.......guess what......crit no damage. She returned fire with HE and I ended up in the spare bed.

So...... buy another premium tank? Not a chance.

T-44-100 is better than Type 59 in almost all the ways.

Then I will stick to the Centurion only.

Too expensive, it's €38 in gold. Guys are we reading into this Advent Calendar wrong? Is this just about "Today you can buy tank X" but not actually supposed to be a good deal or anything? 

 

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't this tank being sold for about €25 during those summer sales version of a type of advent calendar daily tank rotation sort of a thing? There's 30% discounts being thrown around a lot anyway so in any case there'll be plenty of future opportunities to pick up these tanks for around €28 so other than sheer greed I don't see the logic in offering these tanks at off-putting prices. If this tank was offered for around €25 today, I probably treat myself to an early Christmas pressie but not you get nothing, don't be greedy WG.

Preferential MM with the Type 59 is a big plus as you won't need to face T10 monsters in the Chinese tank ever.  Type 59 got buffed recently too, it's a v decent tank now. in the top 5  T8of Medium Prems. IMO it's only real weakness is a lack of gun depression although 7 degrees is still good. Maybe DPM but it's not good or bad for the tier.
