I got a special offer today for 55% off a Type 59. I already have a T54 Mod1, though. Is the 59 worth it for 7500 gold?

 

Thanks!

I have both as well.  And my opinion is the opposite :)

 

I'm an average player - ~53% over my career

 

120 games in the T-54 Mod 1, 51.67% WR 1.07 DR, 1195 DPB, 38.33 Survival

38 games in the Type 59, 39.47 WR, 1.07 DR, 1123 DPB, 31.58 Survival

 

The type 59 was one of two premium tanks that I really wanted.   I waited a long time for it.  I was able to put the gold together when I sold most of my 'collector' tanks.   I was really excited as I'd wanted the 59 since I very first started playing.  Poppy_tart got me interested in it.

 

So I was really disappointed when I purchased it - and cant drive it worth a darn. 

 

 

Peace-

Boris


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

I often look at tank compare on blitzstars to get some data points especially on playerbase WR in a particular tank.

Type 59 is slightly more mobile and has a better, more traditional T-54 style turret.

 

The Mod1 is kinda sluggish but gets good frontal armor.

 

Both have bad DPM and pen.

Type 59 has better gun depression as well, and if you can maintain hull down, can be a beast.

55% off and it was still 7500 gold? Geez...must be a huge package with it. 

 

Anyways, the Type 59 has a better turret (mod1 turret is pretty darn reliable as well), has 7 degrees of gun depression, makes more slightly more credits, and is faster. Mod 1 has a frontal plate that bounces a lot more, 120mm vs 100mm, and has better DPM. Other than they, they have similar gun stats.

 

I have both and I like both. Do you really need both? No. Are they both good? The frontal armor on the mod 1 makes up for a lot that it loses out on (which is mostly just the mobility and the gun depression).

It depends, do you prefer to hit and not pen, or just miss altogether?    :playing:

 

 

I prefer the 59, but if it were me, I would save my gold.  It seems like in an effort to improve sales, new premiums perform better than the old ones.
(Really regretting that Panther M10 purchase).

 

I'm sure someone would be able to tell you what new premiums will be available in-game in the near future.

use 500 gold more and get the lekpz. 

 

Mod1 and type are much alike. While in battle U might forget which one you are driving.

I’ll just throw out a big “I disagree” with the above. Although the German Bulldog is much fun, I think it’s a much more difficult tank to win with. JMO of course.

more difficult to win but more fun.

what is your main reason for playing ?

 

plus if u have a mod1 and adding a type59.

Seriously if u win enough in one why getting the other.

And if u don’t, then some deep questions must be answered.

And I say u but I really mean anyone. 

 

Anyways my reasons for playing aren’t “boring”

and that’s certainly what those type59 look to me.

What is 7500 gold worth to you? Are you only buying one premium tank this year or would you buy any tank that looks decent for a reasonable price?

 

For me, the Type 59 was a worthwhile purchase and I owned the Mod1 when I did so.

I have both.

 

The mod1 has great armor and a superior gun if setup correctly.

 

The type 59 turret armor and better gun depression make it more versatile 

There both sluggish. The dpm on both are ughly.

I run all to engine boost...and it's better.  But no speed demon. And not op.

But it makes great credits and I prefer it.  But my mod1 has a slightly higher win%.
