Or you could buy an IS-6, that is just a superior WZ.

After two marathons for it who will buy this ? In general it's better than 112, but still lacks in penetration regular ammo /175 mm/.

WZ-111 is not good at all. I have it. IS-6 is much better.


 

IF you guys in WG would change the match making for all tier 8 premium tanks so they don't see tier 10, then you have my money. I don't like to be meat for tier 10 with my premium tank. I have the FV202 which gets in tier 10 almost 8/10 matches. That tier 10 match is NOT only a match with 1 tier 10. NO, it's with 6 to 7 tier 10 tanks, TD's and Arties. Having all those tier 10 plus the stupid XVM, there is not much space to have fun. You have people who attack you because of stupid stats thanks to XVM, then you have so many tier 10 that finish you off in seconds. Nope, WG is clearly out of this world to put these tier 8 premium tanks in tier 10 matches.

Cursed tank.
Typical chinese RNG [edited]penetration values that make you bounce, bounce, bounce point blank shots off enemy tanks every 10 seconds whilst taking hit after hit and not bouncing any shots off your own armour.

Dont bother buying, esp bundled.

There is a lot of players who didn't play when marathons took place or didn't have enough tanks, time or dedication to complete them back then. That's another chance for them to add this tank to their collection.

Unfortunately I happen to be one of those. I have also always wanted the tank and I guess the offer itself is decent on paper but it's still 45€ for a tank that's not really great. It's hard to reason buying it. We are talking about almost 50€ of cold hard cash in here.

 

What you WG guys should do with these situations is to offer rentals of 1 day or so. Investing several dozens on a game would be much easier justified if you know exactly what you are getting. This would also potentially attract buys from players who previously had no interest in the tank but liked it after trying it out just because they could.

 

If you are worried about exploit potential, you can't really train a great crew in a day and you always need more credits. Giving away an occasional 1 day rental causes you no harm. The rentals should last no more than 1 day so they wouldn't have a negative impact on the game.

Not sure why the rant about matchmaking, WZ sees Tier 9 at most.

I don't recommend this tank, the IS-6 is superior in many ways. Armour profile, APCR being two of them.

Its standard HEAT shell is alright but sometimes the IS-3 gives you its side so you want to press the 2 key. Would maybe recommend for half price. 

 

Edit: Hold up, nutter. It has hype?

With 30 days premium and a garage slot included the tank itself actually costs barely more than 30 bucks.

I used to like the WZ-111, but after the IS-6 HD buff there is literally 0 point to play this tank anymore. It's pen and gun handling are atrocious and its armour situational. For 20€, sure. But 45 means it's more expensive then both the IS-6 and FCM, which are better limited MM premiums, and more expensive then the T34, STA-2, CDC and Revalorisé, which are all better full MM tanks. Heck, at this point I'd just recommend people to go for the Skorp G, which is also much cheaper.

While on that, Its been quite a while without any marathon. Tobad i missed IS6 and T26E4 marathons. Got WZ tho. Wonder if we will get another marathon anytime soon or WoT already done with that kind of stuff?

After last years marathon for E25 on RU-cluster, WG said there will be no more. One month ago there was a marathon on Asian cluster for T-44-100 R. But there is a issue with tiny player base. Nothing was said about EU and US, but usualy they stick with the RU server policy.

Not really, the WZ price in gold is same as the 112 - 12250, so 44.15 € give or take. The month of premium time is pretty much for free.


I really like the looks of this tank post-HD, but the gun is frustratingly moody and RNG-dependant (same deal as with IS/IS-2/IS-6, two IS-6 trying to pen each other with AP is kinda funny to watch).
