I'm going to be posting daily or mostly daily to get the damn Type 59 buffed, there's no reason it should stay as it is especially with the sham of selling the King Dragon Type 59 and the Type 59-II considering Type 59 owners didn't get any buff or a special trade in offer. This being a perfect example in the issue of older tanks with pmm getting shafted in favor of selling new buffed versions of the tank with regular matchmaking. 

 

The only thing it needs is aim time, 2 seconds like PC would be great but even 2.1 would be acceptable at this point. There's no reason it should be kept at 2.9 seconds when the gun hits for all of 250 damage when there are plenty of tier 8's being sold that hit for 390 or more at this point. The speed is decent, bit sluggish so it's not near fast enough to be broken at this point. The armor is the thing most people praise, but seeing as how it encounters tier 8's and 9's with newer and better guns the armor fails plenty and even so it's not dealing enough damage to compensate. 


Premium matchmaking is not a debate considering the list of buffed tanks with premium matchmaking at tier 8 includes but is not limited to the STA-2, FCM 50 T, Super Pershing, and Panther 88. All of which have been buffed over time, and while they trade armor for a more effective gun and being able to get to speed faster it still shows the hypocrisy in the statement "It has premium matchmaking so it doesn't need buffs." 

 

Day one of the crusade.

I don't see it getting buffed simply because it will be competitive once they implement fulltime +1/-1

It's not competitive against tier 7 right now and it has pmm anyway so +1/-1 will hurt it.

PMM with +1/-1 is always top tier, or at least it has been in the tests. Furthermore, I'm not the greatest player in the world but if you can't defend against tier 7s in the type59 perhaps its human error?

There is nothing wrong with the Type 59.

That's like saying there's nothing wrong with this game as a whole. I've seen so few Type 59's compared with all of the other tier 8 pmm tanks that have been buffed.

Several tier 7 tanks have been buffed, and they're selling tanks like the Dreadnought at tier 7 which can easily ruin the Type 59. I'm not the greatest either, but the Type 59 struggles compared with every other tank I have.

You serious?!? It's gun handling is god-awful! No medium tank should have this kind of gun handling... it's unplayable.

Aye. Type 59 needs so much love, being neglected for so long.

For real, another thread got some of the Chinese mediums buffed but conveniently ignored the Type 59. I don't want to buy a new version of the tank, I want a buff.

I think it's a lost crusade.. With the king dragon buff and the new unskined version out. The type 59 is dead.... RIP...

I'm still pushing for buffs to tanks that actually need them. I don't want to buy a buff for a tank I already own.

Really would be nice to get a buff for the OG Hype 59. Aim time buff would be nice. 

 

As it stands I’d rather play the McDragon in a tier X match than play the Type 59 in a tier IX match...

Agreed... with small alteration.

I can handle the terrible gun handling. Would rather see another rpm buff. The dpm isn't competitive anymore.  But I wouldn't turn down any buff.

Just a small buff to 2.5 aim time would be enough imo, still someone out there is killing it as i can't move from 81-82% and when i do it's usually followed by a very bad game and back to where i started.

Another day, another missed chance to buff the Type 59. 

 

I'm thinking someone in the balance department got killed by it too many times so they refuse to buff it now.
