shoot below the metal plate on the slope you will pen i have over 700 battles in mine there not OP just good and when i doubt track em they spin and show there side to you then shoot just below the track in the middle of the engine thats were the fuel goes up every time

or when in close shoot the comanders hatch you can pen there with a PZ4 L70

You don't know what I am talking about so I'll make it clearer for you.

When somebody calls something the "poor man's " it means it is an inferior version to the original.

Therefore in this case the Type 59 is not as good as the T-54.

It has nothing to do with spending any money on it but all to do with it's performance.
A tier 8 is not as goods as a tier 9... Moar at 11. And no offense to anyone but the T-59 is equal if not better than the T-44.

the MM favours Type59 as well, when they are in a battle, they're grouped together, moreover, they are usually assigned into a much lower tier battle compare to T-44.

Shoot below anything about anywhere near the thing that goes vroom vroom and pow pow.

Oh wait, this is useless at a distance where the Type seemingly absorbs damage like it's got some force field on.

I'd put quite a few holes in the Type 59 with the JagdPanzer IV.  If you shoot the thing under the front plate it should go right through and it does have a pretty okay chance to damage the engine or kill a crew member.  If you hit it directly in the front or side you have a good chance to bounce.  I mean, you have to pick your shots and that isn't always doable when one comes up on you with little time to think.

Really have a hard time understanding what the big fuss is. Type 59 is just like any tier 8 mids. Aim low and you pen. I do have to say. Type 59 troll lower tier tanks pretty well since some of their gun isn't accurate enough to hit the right spots. I had loads of fun shooting up tier 5 and under because most of them never learned tactics and came up to me one at a time. Type 59 is like a smaller, faster but weaker armored version of American T32. They all have to face their enermy straight on. It's not an up or down tank, just average. Sometimes the pack work, sometimes it just put your team down 4:0. For all those who say Type 59 is OP, buy one and talk on the forum after 100 battles in it.

Except the Type 59 seems to absorb a lot of shots.

When I was talking about repairs, I was meaning everything: Repair Kit, Shells, etc... Sorry for not clarifying myself.

I have made some good money in it too...non-premium...

The Type 59 has been so heavily nerfed its barely worth playing now. Wargaming made their money, nerfed it, removed it, brought it back to make more money. Good tactics, bad business.

Once a premium is tested and introduced, it should be illegal to nerf. It's the equivalent of buying a car from a dealership and six months later during routine maintenance the dealership slashes all your tires and tells you tough shit drive it like that now.

Haha, silly noob.

Almost all of my stats are > yours.

My global rating blows you away, and I don't even try half the time.

Go troll elsewhere before I **** your mother.

my T29 does that to the Type 59 - 4 shots and he's dead. Most of my 7-10 tier tanks eat them for lunch.

Battle: Cliff Sunday, 10 June 2012 10:12:52 p.m.
Vehicle: T29
Experience received: 4,380 (x2 for the first victory each day)
Credits received: 108,060 (this was a 54k battle, but a 2x credit special was on)
Battle Achievements: Mastery Badge: Ace Tanker, Boelter's Medal, Steel Wall, Sniper, Top Gun

As far as the Type 59 goes:
I have killed 508 of them, I don't fear the 59 even in a tier 6 tank.
I have played over 1k battles in mine, I prefer pretty much every other tier 8 medium but none make the credits I need to buy the other tanks that the 59 is funding.
Don't like the 59?  Get a Patton, T54 or E-50 and you will have no fear of them at all!

Just 13 more days for this post to be alive for one year.  Dont let it die folks.


On a real note, I like my Type 59.  When playing against it I was like "Wow, that tank is amazing!"  When you get one you realize that its not that special.  Sure, I have had some very nice victories in it but nearly every game, BOOM, there goes the ammo rack and then you are just SOL for the rest of the battle.
