Hey.

 

I have enough credits to get either the  AMX 50B or 121 and was wondering which one people think I should get to help me decide because I'm finding it tricky. As far as I know, the AMX 50B would be considered the better tank but I absolutely hated the AMX 50 120 which makes me wonder how different the 50B is from that. The fact that WZ 120 is probably my favourite Tier 9 medium in the game is the other factor making this a tricky choice for me. So, in short, is the AMX 50B a lot better than the AMX 50 120 and is the 121 better or worse than the WZ 120 and which one of the two would you choose if you could only have one?

50B is a bigger upgrade over the 120 than the 121 is over the 120.

I'm not sure, though I haven't played both of them. I am still on 50 120 ans WZ-120 myself. 50 120 I hate, but WZ is very cool and interesting to play.

 

-I heard 50B has good mobility and the armor isn't that bad, which makes is a lot easier to handle, compared to 50 120. I've read from people who are happy to finish the grind on 50B and enjoy playing it, though they hated the 50 120. This has kept me going as well.

-121 has more gun depression then WZ-120. I just checked your stats to see if you already played the Chinese heavy line, but you haven't. Still your stats on 120 show you're already used to the bad gun depression on the Chinese tanks, so -5 on 121 should be pretty easy for you, since WZ-120 has only 3. The heavies usually have -5 as well.

 

I would pick the most expensive one of both, because of the discounts running at the moment. On the other hand, if you like playing the 120, you could go for the 50B and still be able to grind crew xp on your WZ before buying the 121.

well is sold the 120 in process of getting the 50b and didnt really regret it  so far i never found the motivation to buy the 121 even long time after having unlocked it  keeping the 120 and being happy with it

 

as for the 50b you get a decent frontal hull armor (thought if they go for the turret that wont help) higher mobility  (20% more horsepower)

and proably the most important stuff the reload is improved cutting down the clip reload by 5 sec and intra clip you save about another 3

 

as told before didnt really test the 121 but looking at the stats i looks like it exchanges a bit of mobility for more dpm with a minor pen. improvement of 9mm

 

might not really be only about stats

 

the 50b might add a new playstyle  while the 121 should be similar to the 50m and action x you already own

or do you want to wait for the T57 ?  might be even more extreme in the autoloader/reload aspect  thought its mobility wouldnt exactly match the mediums

50B is a huge improvement over 50 120. That being said, if you really enjoyed the WZ-120, you should probably go for the 121.

Depends on your play style as well do you like autoloading paper thin tanks to support from mid range, or do you like to get in there amongst the action weaving and punching.

121 is garbage.

I have both.

I liked wz 120, and I sort of like 121 in a funny way even if it is crap.

AMX 50 120 is not really an overwhelming tier IX. AMX 50B is a much better tier X than 50 120 is a tier IX.

 

50B.
