"Thanks to its sturdy 122 mm gun, it punches hefty holes in your opponent's armour." IF it pens...hardly a "gem"

I don’t buy T8 premium anymore since most games are against T10. Surely this is hurting your sales figures WG?

Preferential matchmaking isn't worth much when it has to rely on the 2 key to even be competitive within its own tier.

Who can throw his money for a tank with such pathetic main gun?

 

Perhaps only those "tank collectors" who buy every single Premium tank but barely play with them...

As mentined before in every single post, you will have to be using gold ammo, maybe more then regular ammo in T9 battles. Sadly, its actually decent tank otherwise. More of a medium like vehicle, your only armor is rng and turret front. You will get penned by anything you see most likely if not decided rely on these factors. Still, wish they would gave 110 gun to this. Would have made much more sense and fits more of its playstyle.

I dont understand why they dont do what very succesfull happened in Blitz to add second gun in IS6 and buff the pen of WZ112 gun? and even to make the machmaking +1-1...we know that the Blitz is an expermental field for the future PC changes! as for WZ111 wallet closed until Defender apears...

 

That's an excellent question. Maybe there is too much coding needed, who knows. It would give us an easy solution, though. Equipped with the 175 pen gun the tank would have PMM, but equipped with the 200+ pen gun it would have normal MM.

this used to be good, when armor wasn't so good on tanks and mm wasn't so bad!
112 is better armored
you have to face all t8 mm or t9's most of the times, that means you have to use gold, that means you won't make money.
so what is the point of having a premium tank if you don't make money?
yeah it's good in the rare matches when you are in top 3 t8s and the rest of the tanks are t6-7 and you don't have to use gold!
and that happens like 1-2 matches out of 10!
but in a great match you can make 100k-150k credits! the cost for repairs and ammo might take you down to 30k income... maybe!

so it is very simple, use gold and hope to win or no gold and lose but you make credits!
cause seriously, bouncing with standard gets you more credits than penning with gold!

Why do you come up with offers like this if special matchmaking is such an issue? Do you intend to buff these vehicles and remove the special matchmaking to vehicles such as this? Or will smm be kept forever?

"For two days only, you have the chance to add the WZ-111 to your collection. This Chinese Tier VIII heavy tank boasts great mobility, allowing you to even keep up with medium tanks. Thanks to its sturdy 122 mm gun, it punches hefty holes in your opponent's armour."

 

WG bulls at it best...

This tank struggle allot due to stupid 3/5/7 format and insane power creep. In majority of games you will need to fire heat ammo and that negate main function of premium tank (credit earning). As a crew trainer this tank is bad. You need good crew for it to mitigate bad soft stats of tank. Gun and module dmg you will take are classic china = bad gun handling and annoying crits when shoot.

 

Get this tank maybe only as crew trainer for 3+ perk crew and not for credit making.

 

PS 112 is kind of better tank that trade a bit of mobility and gun handling for better frontal armor. Might be better vs htanks you will get matched against.

How about a REAL COLLECTOR'S gem like the Pz 4S? That thing hasn't been on sale since it's removal.

Totally not worth it anymore. If anybody feels masochist enough to play one of the Chinese premium heavies, he should pick the 112. That one has at least some decent armour. 
 

Seriously, I pity anyone who is naive enough to pay 42 Euros (!) for this powercreeped pile of junk. Playing Tier VIII premiums is generally not much fun anymore even with preferential matchmaking (as rightly pointed out above), but there is bad, there's worse and there is totally outdated, and Tier VIII tanks with 175 Pen definitely rate among the latter.

That could have described me up to a point but 3-5-7 MM has cured me.  All versions of the D25 gun on tier 8 tanks are obsolete.  "Preferential" MM means always facing tier 9 tanks, usually 5 at a time.  Buying any of these premium tier 8 tanks with the D25 gun means paying 40 euros to deliver free XP to your opponents.

 

Thank you, WG, for helping me to stop spending money on premium tanks.

That's like the lot of us with our tier 8 premiums, lined up for the match.
