CS-59 - The least bad Polish medium

Recommended Posts

Don't see a thread for this tank so why not create one? I kind of find it decent, it's not Leo PTA comfort but trying for the same position so that makes it bad by comparison. It feels like the least bad  Polish medium to me, with the possible exception of the derp-BUGI, which has hilarious alpha for a tier 6 med.

Have any of you researched the engine? The stock engine is 670 HP and 1.900 kg. The upgraded one is 700 hp and 2.100 kg. Seems to me there is no real need to spend 50.300 xp on that thing. Should I?

I will absolutely not spend 9.200 xp on the upgraded radio. Going from 710 meters to 730 at tier 9 is absolutely, utterly pointless. And you get the radio for free when you unlock the tier 10 so double the reason not to spend XP on that module.

Faster traverse. The radio might be pointless but so is the tier X.

It's clearly worse than the PTA, but does it at least compare well to the Patton/Type 61? I've seen people bring this thing into 430 positions and use the small size + DPM to cut through things. Is that a legit strat?

Small size? It feels enormous. Not too high, but pretty much every hit pens so you feel big and fat. I don't think it can work in positions the 430 can rock, since it has a squishy turret. It's been so long since I played the Pat and 61 so I can't really judge it in comparison with those.

So engine is a yes? Or suffer through without it since it's not really a keeper?

I don't have it but in general the better engine is the way to go even if the numbers imply it's meh. Those things have hidden values such as gearing, torque and throttle response it seems, which can make a huge difference where the p/w ratio gain seems minimal of even non-existent.

Meh, I ended up getting the engine. I don't really notice a huge difference, but it seems to feel a little more agile. Could be a placebo effect I suppose.

I really liked this tank. The gun misses more than I'd like, but the armor bounces more than I'd expect. The 390 alpha damage is so nice to have and the pen is high enough I seldom switched to premium shells. My second to last battle before selling it to move to the tier X was a particularly fun loss:

      Credited with the Concept 1B tonight. Has anyone got theirs yet? Thoughts?
      EDIT: Nevermind - http://wotreplays.eu/site/5859757#karelia-snoregasm2-concept_1b 
      1 battle, 1 Ace tanker. Has insane armour, is fast as a medium, has no weakspots frontally from what I can tell, has insane gun handling. WTF WG?!

      The Panzer IV from the Girls und Panzer Anime seems to make it into the game.
      https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2021/04/19/update-1-12-1-🇩🇪-pz-kpfw-iv-ausf-h-ankou/

      Funnily enough. It is propably one of the most realistic premium tanks or tanks in general we got in a long time. Despide being from an Anime.

      Been struggling with tier 10 since coming back - jesus christ this is awful. If you don't play something OP you feel like a tier 9 in a tier 10 game. 
      Got an account with a 0 game FV215b that I marked (69 games, just barely 4k dpg lmao) - wound up running the equipment piece that prevents fires and the same directive after the same amount of fires as amount of games in a 10 game session (got lit 3 times in one game...) but after that I never got set on fire again. Totally worth putting those up and giving up vents so you can actually use the HP without a fuel tank fire. Been noticing that a lot of casemate TDs are running new equipment as well (7.5s was pretty much enough RLD to permatrack anything until it dies and it is not anymore. It's closer to 6, so I'm assuming it's the equipment since it also varies heavily.)
       
      907 yoloing with optics+directive is sort of working, I'm keeping 85 but getting good enough of a session without a derp to fall back down after climbing up is so rare with how common the absolutely worst maps are. I have played 8 times the amount of Erlenberg as I have Prokh (assault and encounter enabled), I also get a lot of Kharkov and Abbey that keep showing up too and these maps are just too poorly designed to get a good enough gameplan to fulfill the damage requirements. There's just no play that works well enough. 
       
      I tried tier 8 as well, and it's like a different game played on the same board. You get away with so much stupid shit because of gaps in view range and the overall skill level. It makes me feel like my mechanics are super clean as I can poke in to tanks pre aimed at me and fire, pull into safety/unpennable angle before they fire - but at tier 10 that is just wishful thinking. 
       
      Long way to go, I hate being this derpy in game quality which is what I'm going to work on but tier 10 is so ass..

      So, how many trees you cut down (WG send me some thing i could see funny stats)
      In total i fell 56811 trees and shot 21966 tracks and drowned 23 times
      (also mines my best map (i think?) which seems kinda right, in general i get good games there, hehe)

      Starting with update 1.12.1, it's impossible to log in without Bullshit Center running in background. No reason to keep the game on the hard drive for me. Meh...
