Number 3 will surprise you, just like this classic Tier VIII heavy tank.

I hear you guys but still a good collection item if you don't have it in your garage tho! One of the first tier 8 Premium tanks in the game! ;)

Garbage tank.

Armour received a buff awhile back, but it still has week spots on the R2D2 turrets.

Plus you are a massive arty target.

 

Main problem is still the garbage gun.

186mm standard pen and 219mm premium pen just does not cut it in todays game.

The price isn't too bad though.

It's a pref MM tank and so gets totally screwed by the Match Maker.

 

It's balanced as a tier 7.5 but sees full tier 8 and 5/10 tier 9/8 battles ALL THE TIME.

 

As such it is routinely the weakest tank in the team.

 

Imagine rolling towards the heavy corner and seeing that their Defender and Obj. 257 are heading there too and you think to yourself, shall I stick with the 186 pen of standard shells, or shall I treat myself (at 4400 a pop) to 219mm of pen.

Meanwhile the Obj 257 driver is confident that his 315 pen HEAT will do 440 (vs your 300) even against your armour.

That's it's only value, collecting (dust) in your garage.

 3. The insurance payout

Make sure to get an extra insurance policy for your radio operators

 There you have it folks, one of the "5 Reasons" to get the tank is that your radio operator will die all the time because of the R2D2 weak spot on the front of a tank whose selling point is armour and HP.

 

Save your money - Avoid.

I feel the "collector's item" selling point really doesn't work. why collect all those €20 to €45 Premium tanks you can't take out into the battlefield anymore due to the goldspam meta? to spin them around in your garage until WG switches off their servers after years of mismanagement, PR fails and consumer fraud? XD

 

PS: Other than that, KV-5 is a perfect premium tank. Significant weakspot counterweighed by strong armour (which has been nullified by gold spammo) plus PMM. Was lovely to play in the pre-Defender era. Thems the days...

KV5 is a great old time fun tank (+500 games, +60% winrate with unicum stats, not much gold shot), and cheap also, if you in general think its a good thing to pay WG anything...

Really? You are still asking for money for this tank? haha milky milky. 

 

NO. I do not have it and actually wanted to buy it SEVEN years ago. Now, simply no, 10 years of world of tanks, you could gift us this old-timer for funs that's all, not worth a single penny to spend.

I'm glad to see more of these around!

 

Lots of HP means lots of damage you can farm on them! Plus, the poor saps who play this thing and think, thanks to Wargaming's "pro arguments" that this thing is armored and drive out in the open.

 

You don't even need gold to turn these things into swiss cheese.

 

(THat said, rather see these than the OP Defenders around)

Read the forum rules, check for constructive posts and anything contributing to the discussion. Thus far you have done neither, and others needed to be booped also. Just a periphery drive by the forums and I'm already disappointed by some peoples behaviour on here. 

 

Behave or be booped, the rest of you. I wish you a wonderful day and may you shield your R2D2 well! :izmena:

5 REASONS WG SHOULD SELL TYPE59

1 its been in the game for a decade

2 its a all rounder of a med tank

3 make sure you have a fire truck beacause it sets on fire easliy

4 the type 59 have got a great 100mm with -7 degrees on depression

5 its a great crew trainer and offers lots of credits and also has not been on sale for a while

 

this is 5 reasons why TYPE 59 should be sold

 

on the next episode of why it should be sold we will be looking at the T103

this is EEKEEBOO and peace
