To the tune of 'Bye Bye Miss American Pie' by Don McLean.

(Sorry it's a bit late)

Spoiler                     

Not a very long time ago
I can still remember how
Tiers five through seven could make me smile
Be it VK, KV or ISU
I knew exactly what to do
And I could always do it with some style
But these Chinese tanks, they made me shiver
Their HP coming off in slivers
Wolfpacks every match-up
I was stuck playing catch up
I can't remember if I cried
When first I did with one collide
"They're perfectly balanced" Wargaming lied,
The day the pew pew died

So!

[Chorus]
Bye, bye to god damn Type 59s
Drove my Chaffee to the Abbey, it was clear this time
Them Belorussians found themselves a gold mine
Singin' "We can simulate scarcity for a time,
Then we bring 'em back in down the line."


Oh, now Snib's wrote the book on stats
And Zorin's lot role-play the facts
Like Wargaming promised a while back
Now do you believe that a community
Can offer more content and more accurately
Than the devs who won't even post on the wiki?

Well, I know that you've been buying gold
'Cause your scores are a wonder to behold
We were friends when we started this game
Now you're in the Hall of Fame!
I was a lonely little Valentine
I met you, your new clan and your Type 59s
So I knew it was the end of the line
The day the pew pew died
I started singin'

[Chorus]
Bye, bye to god damn Type 59s
Drove my Chaffee to the Abbey, it was clear this time
Them Belorussians found themselves a gold mine
Singin' "We can simulate scarcity for a time,
Then we bring 'em back in down the line."


Gentlemen, this topic is more suited for the Off-topic section. Moving it there.

Great song, very entertaining and a with a valid message.

I have a type 59 & I believe it was an awesome tank, although in my opinion it isn't any better than any other tier 8 medium. It is strongest in a wolf pack and that is only possible because so many people have them. It has been well and truly nerfed since 7.0 and now there is a new devil in town, the French mediums from tier 5 up. I have seen AMX 13-75's destroy a Type 59 on several occasions, single AMX 13-75's and their tier 7, 8 & 9 brethren dash through defenses with impunity and whack the artillery easier than it ever was for a wolfpack of Type 59's.

T50-2's and VK2801's have never been any where near as scary to an Arty player. Arty has always been very difficult to play well but now it is rarely effective, if it isn't the small French tanks tearing into base and smashing them apart its the other teams arty firing at the trails left by their shots.

Wargaming is supposedly trying to keep everyone happy, however all they seem to be doing is making things go from bad to worse. The game is rapidly becoming unplayable, with appalling match making and poor map rotation as well as dissappearing tanks, almost every one of the friends who I play with are talking of quitting. Thats a shame because until 7.0 the game was pretty good, certainly more playable than it is now.

I may not be writing a song, but I'm sure I am raising a valid point in reply.

What's this tank which stands before me?
Gold T-59s which aim at me
Spin around quick and start to run
Find out tier 5-6 are the chosen ones, oh nooo!

Big wallet warrior with eyes of fire
Telling people "Hey - I support your Free Game Desire"
WG sitting there and smiling
Watches Tier 5-6 tank flames get higher and higher
Oh no, no, please MM help me!

Is it the end of fun, my friend?
Tier 8 gold tanks coming 'round the bend
Low tiers running 'cause they're pissed
Game used to be fun but now its shit
No, no, please, no!
