may not be the right place for this, so i apologize before hand. im sorry, but to me the type 59 is way way overrated, they say they didnt change it, but a tier 8 medium(like m26) or (t44) has a gun that can deal with tiers of its own, and higher, yet the type 59 has tier 7 gun, a tier 9 engine(520 horsepower) that isnt that great for 40tons, and i end up finding myself actually having to fight against a 'Lowe' tier(8) which in most cases they track me and kill me in two-three shots, where as it takes my; gun about 5-10 shots(200damage max, isnt that much, and for maneurvability a small ant hill, will slow me down, i know that they say it didnt change, but still 520 horsepower for 40 tons, any vehicle of its tier, with its tier engine, will out accelerate, and super its top speed,and often find myself fighting the  kv-1. i know its a money maker either way, but seems the advantage is to the lowe or kv-5, since it turns and loses speed, with its armor now able to be penned by tier 4 up, maybe make it a tier 7 tank, where as it doesnt need to face tier 10 tanks, that it has no chance of penetrating, why you made it tier +1 in battles is beyond me.

Max damage is 240, not 200, with 175 pen (penetration equal to all the good guns on the t-44).

There is a pretty gross difference between tier 8 and 10, so it can be rough for all tier 8 tanks.  For the most part, the Type is balanced appropriately compared to the other tier 8 mediums, and would be overpowered as a tier 7 with it's current stats.

Are you ****ing kidding me? Have you even looked at the guns? T-44's gun only aims faster, and before that gun, it held its own just fine with a worse gun than Type has. M26 has 5 more pen over it, and WAY worse armor. Nvmd, you know what, this isn't even worth my time. You go ahead and keep trading shot for shot in any other tier 8 med against a heavy. Btw, stop point your ass and side to tier 4s and maybe, just maybe, they'll stop pen-ing you.

This thread is still going?

On a different note, the Type isnt that bad of a tank, but it isnt as OP as most (i thought so too at once) seem to think.

have an issue? get a tissue, their only good when people know how to use them its not uncommon to see them explode in one shot.  People cry because they think they have too much armor but in reality unless you are angling well any tier 7 and up tanks can pen it easily

I only hate the Type 59 when it is on the other team and there are 4 or 5 of them, and there is not a single 59 on our team (full discolsure: of course, on the other hand, i love it when the situation is reversed and I am in my 59 and we have 3 or 4 others on our team as well!). Are they indestructible...absolutely not. Are the OP...not really. Do they have certain advantages and a role to fill...of course, almost every tank does. As I mentioned, the only real problem is when the other team has several, and your own team has nothing effective to counter them. Other Tier 8 mediums are as good or better, but you almost never see 3-5 M26's or T-44's or other similar mediums together on a team. On the other hand, you seem to see several 59's that are not even platooned together on a team quite often (thanks again MM). One or two 59's is no big deal, but 3 or 4 of them together in a pack is usually trouble.

They are good if you know how to use them.  I have a 61% win ratio on mine and 89 battles in it.  I was in a battle two weeks ago and our team had 2 59's and the other side had nine.    I was in a russian t-34 and died quick.  Our loss was declared by someone before the timer counted down and a guy in a kv-13 said for nobody to leave base but wait for the rush.  The 59's came in two waves and we crushed them.  I'll post a screen shot tomorrow when I'm at home.

So, from what I gather, the counters to Type 59 is:

Have a bigger gun

or

Hope they are stupid

Well, I really can't say either way but, my Type 59 has had it's ass kicked on several occasions and many times, I make hits but, do no damage. I bought it just to have in my garage. I get matches with more tier 9's & 10's than anything else and let me tell ya, when hit by one, I get spun around in a circle and damned near toasted so, I don't think there's any real need to get rid of them, limit them or, change their class of battles. I'm having a hard enough time in it as is. Besides, it's not that often I get battles with a lot of them in it. If I do get a Victory, it's not because of me, that's for sure. It's because of all the higher tiers in the game. I usually wind up with a huge repair cost especially if, I fail to damage something. :Smile_confused:

Looking at your stats I can see that.

I'm sure you can tell a lot by my stats while I'm playing the squishiest tanks in the game.

I make great credits, even better than with the T34 I bought.  And I'm not any good.  You aren't playing it right.

Most of the Tier 5 TD's , not sure on the T-49 new TD, I know the up gun Panzer IV and Up-gun Sherman can as well as the KV's.
t-49 can hurt a type 59.killed one with a frontal shot hit him about 3 times(think i got lucky but did damage him)have used HE shells against a lowe doing just 2%damage per shot

After 89 battles got Ace Badge in Type 59. And this was after the matchmaking was changed by WG, meaning it's put into Tier X battles more often.

Obvious OP tank is obvious.
