It got hit with the nerf bat pretty hard. I'll give it that the armor nerf was arguably warranted, but the mobility and gun nerfs were entirely uncalled for, especially the mobility nerf. The mobility nerf was made worse by what WG calls "physics" and the Type cannot get out of its own way.
The_Chieftain: This. As mentioned, they had a habit of showing up in wolfpacks. A Wolfpack of any Tier VIII mediums back then would absolutely ruin your day, but the “power” became associated because it was a lot more easy to associate your death to a reasonably common group of three Type 59s than to a more rare group consisting of a Pershing, Panther II and T-44. Type 59 was never as powerful as those, but it was a lot more common. It wasn’t the first of its effect either. Anyone else remember the days when whichever side had the most T-54s would win?
