Pretty much it... besides collecting is there any other reason to own it?

It's a good medium tank. It has been fun mostly for its rarity, but it appears even that is being stripped away. 

 

It is not OP.

Not really, t-44-100 is at least slightly better in most categories except armor.

It's Chinese, the T-44 is Russian.

Trains crews for a different nation, so if you play that nation...

 

Also has preferential MM, so no meeting T10s.  Though that means a little less since the MM changes.

ok, well.... that's kind of good. But yea... you dont see too many 10s these days anymore playing 8s. Not such a big deal.

 

China meds kind of suck too, so not sure I'd want a crew trainer. I think I'll pass... besides, 25k gold?? are you frickin kiddin WG?

It's this game's "prestige item", it's not OP or anything, just rare and a good carrot to attract some players.

As said before:

T44-100: Tier 8 MT in Tier 8 MM.

Type 59: Tier 9 MT in Tier 7 MM.

Guys, the offer is really for the "must collect them all" crowd. The appeal is in the rarity of the 59G more than in anything else. Nothing wrong with that, but if you are looking for pure utility to be derived from playing and do not have unlimited gold, then it might be better to wait for something else - there are 11 more offers to come.

Its a fun, solid medium tank for a nation that I don't necessarily play a lot.  I'll take my T-44 (tech tree) over the 59 any day.

Because you can train Chinese medium drivers in it.

 

DUH!  :teethhappy:

It has pref mm, so armor works better. Not worth 25k gold definitely.

already have the type59, this one doesnt make extra as it should from what i hear, so download the skin for free if you already have a type 59, at 25k its way over what a tier 8 should cost. has anyone seen any special skins in game, that cost 12k gold?

It's not worth that price, indeed.  Wait until there is a cheaper way to get it, they buff that line (pretty sure they will), or both.

Making the price "too high" is appealing to some. Others prefer to pay more if it keeps it exclusive, and advertises "I can afford this. You triggered?"

One thing not mentioned, it's shells cost is like 200 credits, so it make the best credits of all the tier 8 prems 

 

You can play some WG roulette, see if they offer the non gold type for credits later in the event if you really want to walk on the wild side.

The recent buffs more or less make it a tier 9 tank with a tier 8 gun with pref mm so it never fights tier 10. I'd say that is a very special tank. As to if its worth 25k gold is up to the buyer but at the minimum it won't disappoint when in a match so at least you get a viable tank.
