When WoT nerfs, they nerf hard.

It happened to the t59. People complained (the MM for the tank was off), and so the developers decided to nerf it into the ground (now I hardly ever see t59's with kills). I've now learned the lesson to never complain, because I know the developers are never going to rebalance them and make them useful tanks. I greatly suggest a new rule of thumb for the developers regarding new tanks: The tanks must be out for at least a month and a half (time for most people to get them) before you can greatly nerf them (tweaks would be fine).

The T-59 always had a poor gun, abysmal acceleration, and burned and kaboomed like it was made of gunpowder but it had plenty of low tier cannon fodder to feed on that had trouble hurting the T-59 head on and it was easy for the T-59s poor gun to hurt them.
All that changed with the matchmaker change now the T-59 see a lot more tanks it has trouble hurting and a lot more that can hurt it with ease.
The French tanks that got nerfed were fine when I got them upgraded.

When I first got the the 13 90 three months ago I first started seeing Batchats on a regular basis and I was amazed at the number of them that suicided like that. At first I figured they were pretending to be T-50-2s or something, after that I thought they might be going for scout badges. But every time I saw it happen I couldn't help but think something like "now that's a waste of a lot of firepower". Sometimes they just seemed to be downright stupid.
After a while of this routine I started thinking that maybe the Batchat was terrible after the nerfs and that they were rushing just because they'd lost hope or something. Maybe it was a form of protest, a way to show Wargaming the sheer frustration of playing the suddenly-not-so-OP batchat. I'd wince every time I saw a "Batshit" getting turned into a piece of Swiss cheese by the whole battery of enemy guns while I was sitting safely behind a rock in my 13 90 waiting for a good target to flank or ambush. I'd have two or three kills by the end of the match and make a load of profit while that Batchat got no credits and had a sky-high repair bill to boot....
Now I just got a Batchat yesterday, figuring I might finally find out why people rush them all the time. And guess what, I still can't figure it out! My Batchat is still stock, 13 90 gun and everything, but I'm having a great time in it and averaging about one kill per match which I think is pretty good for a stock tier IX tank with a tier VII gun. The batchat is fast, still a little slow to maneuver but the gun is great against what it can penentrate. I still see other Batchats, fully upgraded, rushing to their death and doing minimal damage. I don't even have the tank upgraded and I love it, how is it that they could dislike it when it's upgraded and even better?
So, in the end, I've come to this conclusion: people are stupid. I'm just as guilty as the next person for doing stupid things with my tanks, but at least I can play a Batchat pretty well. It's no use blaming Wargaming for nerfing the Batchat too hard, because frankly they needed to and the tanks still performs very well.

Oh I'm sorry they totally didn't raise it's turret and flatten out! Oh well I don't care at least it's getting another MM buff again!

Ditto here. I learned to shoot them in the side with my VK 3001 (P), which conveniently sets fire to the 59 as well. I only aim for the turret if I have a flat shot at its side or rear, if if he's facehugging me which means cupulas.

Prime example - Marder II.
It took forever to nerf it.
