I think the regular Type 59 (Not KD) needs to be buffed to the stats it currently has on PC. It has been heavily power-creeped and almost every other tier 8 premium (with or without pref MM) is much more competitive than it. There's a reason you very rarely see them in the matchmaker and is often referred to as the "Hype 59", if the wr is high it is likely just because of the amount of people that play it and it is probably usually only played by good players so should not be taken into account.

 

The buff should change the stats to what the KD had before it got given the bigger gun (because it was trash against 10's). Its like WG just forgot the original tank exists:

 

Accuracy buff

Aim time buff

Maybe slight pen buff

 

The changes would not make the tank OP, just make it nicer to play and more competitive with other tier 8 premiums. They were wrong to take the PC's stats and just sell the tank again as a re-skin, only to just change it later. I've been waiting for this buff for months but think WG have just forgotten about the tank.

Must needs buy KD for proper buff. Good luck, though... I would welcome a buff for my Type 59.

 

Oh yeah, Welcome to the Forum!

Yeah ever since the King Dragon was released the Hype 59 is on the back burner.  I never wanna play it anymore.

 

I’d rather be in a tier X match in the McDragon than a tier IX match in the Hype 59! No joke.  :amazed:

 

An accuracy buff is completely needed. An aim time buff would be welcomed too.

Welcome

 

This has been requested many times but WG thinks IS6 is fine because of 50% wr, T-34-3 is good, 121 is center of balance and Tvp is fine so don't expect them to buff the Type59.

No it's not. Gun handling is awful, it needs aim time buff.

Get closer. It's the most accurate tank I own, Seriously its 81%. No other tank I play is that consistent. Your accuracy is 81% as well.  But I'm not opposed to a slight buff. Our Type still has its pmm. I prefer to keep it that way. Opposed to the Pc's standard mm. I bought the KD for tens.

It's hidden stats a.k.a. gun dispersion values while moving/turning turret are horrible, it feels as bad or even worse than Soviet heavies like Fatherland etc. and those tanks have 3.4 seconds aim time and 390 alpha. I'm fine with 0.39 accuracy but gun handling needs major buff, currently Type 59's gun is complete trash, I haven't played mine in multiplayer in over a year now, it's that bad.

Yup, needs a gun buff. The gun handling is awful. It has done for a long time though, I doubt it'll happen.

Personally all the Pref Tier 8s need fat buffs

Not all of them, FCM 50T, Jagtiger 8.8 and STA-2 are perfectly fine.

Agree, it should be looked at. It is a horribly sluggish tank,
