Thanks WG ! :Smile_Default:

The chienese tree just released and already tier 7 tank as a tank of the month? LoL
That's a good deal for all those 9 players who has used free exp. to get this tank.

You'll be surprised how many of those wz-131/132 are driving around already. Though the tier 5 or 6 Chinese would have been better, since they haven't been around so long yet.

I loved playing the Cromwell as Tank of the Month, it was a lot of fun and really good for the credits! (~250 games and 64% winrate :D)

I have already played the American M5 Stuart and the Russian T34. I generally enjoy a mobile, sneaky or flanking style.
(For that I now own US mediums up to Patton M46, also Chaffee, T49, Cromwell, T-34-85, PzIII/IV and AMX 13 75 & 90.)
(I do not have a Type 59, according to the WoT wiki the WZ-131 is a lightweight version of that.)

But I wonder if going for this WZ-line would be interesting for me. Any comments or thoughts?

I know they are mobile/light, but I am not sure of the nuances in their playstyle, so I'm not sure if they will add something fun for me :).

Don't tell me this is new to you. As for most events: You either have the tanks on discount already or they are way out of reach!

Nah, I don't need and don't want this tank. Have fun!

I couldn´t be bothered to upgrade from tier I in the chinese tree yet, since there are a a lot more desireable tanks for me to grind for.

If this one should proove viable, I might change my mind, until then, there are already Chaffee´s, T 50-2´s, AMX´s and even VK lights swarming the battlefield.

Have fun with it, anyway.
