Ok, well can some experienced tankers tell me what to aim for when up against a type 59? I don't think I've ever won against a type 59 in my Tiger II, sad I know, but I don't use hit boxes, just try to kill them anyway. Never works. If I see 2 Type 59s coming for me, I run for cover and try to prolong the inevitable.

The sides are low but very vulnerable. The problem is if you aim high even a little bit, it bounces off.  

If you're close, try for the lower glacis. It's still an iffy penetration, especially if he's angled at all, but you can set them on fire through there. Once again, if you're high it'll bounce every time.

If he's shooting at someone else, hit the back of this turret. There's an ammo rack there.

If you don't think you can hit either of these, try to track him. A still Type 59 is much easier to deal with.

I have worked my up through the ranks and it was hard enough to deal with the Lowes, now there is the Type 59.  They are like cockroaches swarming the field.  It makes me wonder why I have spent so much time working my up.  I think the type 59 has swung the balance of the game. Why work hard when you can just buy a bad ass medium tank.  I'm fine with there being gold tanks, but they should be limited in their capacity.  They should not be as bad ass as they are.  I hate to sound like i whining, but it sucks and I feel cheated.

I agree 100% with this. I have been busting my guts to get a T-54 but why when you can basically start with one that gets into lower tiered battles. So crap.

ahhh *sigh*

1 : the T59 is not even CLOSE to being as good as the T54
2 : the T59's MM value has been boosted by one so now it gets in " harder " battles more
3 : the T59 is the worst of the tier 8 med tanks
4 : the T59 needs to be in a platoon to be truly effective
5 : tier 5's cant kill tier 8's, WTF tier 5 should be able to kill every tank ingame just like the tier 8's can easily kill teir 10's...oh wait....
6 : T59's are easy to kill if your willing to learn

i could go on for about another 30 mins, but i dont see the point. players will always whine and bitch about something they want but cant have ( or is unwilling to pay for ). please dont bullshit and say the tank is OP etc, because its not....the reason 99% of you whine is because its a PREM tank....nothing else

but by all means dont bother going for your T54, keep thinking the T59 is better or as good, and i will keep ripping T59's to bits in every tank i own and laughing at the players that cant

First of all, I play on the Russian server.

I don't own a Type-59, and I don't plan to. Too many of them out there already, I hate being on the "me too" bandwagon, and I really don't like playing light or medium tanks, unless they are lower-tier (<3 the Valentine and Matilda)... I may eventually just for the sake of unlocking everything, it's just that I prefer heavies in almost all situations.

First of all, to those that say "premiums are OPed":

Type-59's are almost never the BEST tanks on the field:

To those that think that ANY tank makes more credits than a KV-5(note: Lowe AMMO cost):
Posted Image

Even when they see you and try to all attack you at once, half the time they can't penetrate you:
Posted Image

Trolol?  :Smile-hiding:

Keep in mind that the Type-59's are weighted like the other T8 premiums, and I rather have an extra Lowe, KV-5, or M6A2E1 on my side, than a Type-59.

It's a shame I don't SS stuff in-game very often when shooting at stuff, but half the time the Type-59's all run into an area thinking they are the toughest sh!t under the sun, get tracked, and FFed by 2-3 heavy tanks that will kill them-off before any other thank.

Look, I HAVE been soloed by Type-59's even in my KV-5 (freak sh!t happens), however 90% of the time you are better off with just about any other tank by your side, premium or not.

As far as Panther II versus Type-59, I can roll-over a Type-59 without much thought, but I need to play peek-a-boo with a Panther II. Do any of you get why? 1 vs 1, one of those tanks will bounce at least SOME shots, while the other will likely get criticals with every shot.

I got into the game after it was taken out. I would also like to get other premium tanks that no longer show up in the store. I feel like my collection is not complete without them. :huh::Smile-playing:

Tolos at one time 'you said' you didn't even have a T-59 anymore, it is now obvious you were full of BS on this account (What a surprise)

What a T-54? Hey DUDE I have one now, and a T-44, and ya know what your are full of BS on this account to. The T-44 is not even close to a T-59, and the T-54 is better but ya know not that much better. You are a WW from the word go Tolos and nothing else. The T-59 hands down is what I said it was from the start, a low end tier 9 medium, or as others are saying more correctly, a tier 8.5. Your own stats, and let us all not forget that Tolos 'claimed' he sold his T-59 awhile ago and guess what huh, he didn't. Look bro I have kept track of your stats to see if you were full of it, and huh yup you are.

You are the worst kind of troll there is. Boy what a

surprise that is................

My favorite bunch of BS is the T-59 being the worst of the tier 8s going. Well brother I now have a T-44 and a Panther II and you are full of it. AND do NOT even try the BS about the 122mm on the T-44. The T-44 is a brawler and anyone with even a half an ounce of experience in the game KNOWS a brawler tank needs ROF+Firepower to succeeded. So the 122mm comparison doesn't fly. Even when ROF+Damage is factored in the T-59 sits above a tier 8 T-44/Panther, and below an E-50/T-54. As for armor the T-59 is hand and foot above the rest of the tier 8s.

I am now convinced your 'skill' comes from your ability to pack as many gold rounds in a tank as you can, in short your skill is actually 'no skill'

Your advice is nothing short of BS, what a surprise, kinda like your BS about selling your T-59. Gee what a surprise you claimed you sold it, yet since our last conversation you have played more battles with it???????????  Hmm kinda makes one wonder if BS'ing is a normal trait for you? Must be why you never posted your actual garage to prove your point about selling it, huh you didn't.

Well as I have always said, just let the liar shoot their mouths off, and pretty soon their true colors will be revealed to all. Go ahead claim you have sold your T-59, as you did before, and I will post the old games played number you used to have to show you didn't. I will even post the statments you made to that effect to prove how full of BS you are.

Amazing how many people whine a tank is OP while they dont even know where to hit it apperantly. Ill give you a tip: On the front of the tank theres a metal bar sticking out on the hul. It goes the entire width of the hull. Thats a weakspot. The lower glacis is also a weakspot. Commanders view port, Drivers viewport, gun, tracks are all spots where you can easily penetrate.
