I've got a 20% discount and am thinking about buying the 112 as a Chinese crew trainer.

 

I know it was utterly gash before?  For those that have got it, is it basically heavily armoured with an IS6-ish gun?

If MM gets fixed, yes. If it stays as is. No t8 is worth it.

agreed 100% T8 is not a playable tier at the moment unless you are very lucky and get top tier, mostly and the last 175 games I have been in a tier X game with any T8......

Do not buy this turd. Those Chinese 175 pen 122mm guns are utter trash. Buy a Patriot or any of the newer premium heavies.

 

Edit: On second thought, do not buy any premium tank until they fixed the matchmaking.

I agree with all above, but if you do need a chinese HT crew trainer, 112 is not a bad choice. It has a very strong front and turret, but of cause potato gun handling, slightly worse than IS6... Premium rounds are HEAT and you might need allot of it in current mm...

I rarely meet one in randoms, that should say a lot.

 

And yes, tier 8 at the moment is utter torture to play in.

I strongly recommend the 112.  I'm a very average player and can raise my 50% win rate to 57% in this tank.

I can recommend 112 as well. HOWEVER i don't think it would be the ideal choice for you at the moment, it's not so forgiving as people think ( especially nowadays) and the lack of gun depression/handling wont help at all. 

 

i think a superpershing would be a better choice.

Currently if you want it as a pure crew trainer then it is doing ok, but be prepared to spam a lot of premium ammo.

 

You barely make money with it, and the current MM is your biggest enemy.

 

But overall this thing is completly powercreeped and I cant recommend it in any way.

Do you think tier VIII Premium tank with 175 mm penetration gun is worth it?

 

Obviously not...

The 112 has pref MM, right?

So I don't see why all the people here are whining about the bad MM T8s are getting atm.

The gun is beyond bad. Nice armour though

I've been taking out my Prem MM tanks (E25 and T23E3) and i rarely find myself as top tier. Yes only having one tier higher is a bonus but with the new super heavy tier 8s it hurts tier 7 SMM a lot.

 

I also tried my WZ-111 and again mostly tier 9 games where my pen is useless and it needs plenty of gold spamming which leads to no decent silver income over regular tanks. Indeed I find i'm making most money at the moment playing tier 9 ,meds.

well, it all the time meets 3 or 5 tier 9 tanks now. In past it was max 3 once in 5 or 10 games.

And lots of new tanks destroy it.

Its not just MM at fault here. Entire good/bad and most played tank chart have changed.

Its not a bad tank. But nowdays there are lots of other "not a bad tanks"... :trollface:

 

I suggest you to take a look at some premium tanks that are getting a buff this patch. For example, t-54 mod.

Played some pantherM10 and WZ111 myself lately, didn't notice/care about bad MM. Might be just me not getting tilted/outplayed by higher tiers often though :thinking:

112 money making ability is trash , it actually doesn't make credits , due to constant need to spam heat , and even heat bounce a lot , due to being horrible vs spaced and angled armor and potato gun handling 

 

The 250mm heat is like a 220 ap round so don't expect penning tier 9 easily or even some tier 8 

 

Hell even against defender lowerplate its 50% chance of penning it with heat

When it was buffed and before the intro of MM and 'super' prems it was pretty good, the gun is difficult to use effectively. I played mine last night for 3 games did personally quite well in it damage wise ( 2 games over 3k damage ) but it can't push anymore so I can't force wins anywhere near as I could. It's not worth buying at the moment.

175 pen works fine at tier 7, as you see a lot of tier 7, 8 and rarely 9. A tier 8 PMM sees minimum tier 8 and that hursts the money making from the start as you see a stronger opposition.
I've abandoned all tier 8 tanks for tier 7 IS-2 and that is more fun and makes a lot more credits due to that.

The MM f**ks tier 8's royally. So no, don't buy any tier 8 premium tanks until they get that sorted out.
