Sadly, you can only get it in an overpriced bundle.

Why is it only in bundle? 40€ minimum for a tier 7 light tank? I wanted to buy it, but I feel it way too much.

€40 hole in my pocket...  I have been waiting for this for some time!  Guess I'll have to quit the game another time.  :rolleyes:

I think previous recent releases were bundled, IIRC I got mine in a bundle so maybe they are just being consistent.

Yep, I got mine indeed and it made my day already, finally ^_^

 

I understand why they bundled it to be honest, it's a very good tank and you don't want millions of them running around, that would be bad for general gameplay.

 

ps: Out of +reps for Today, sorry :D

 

==================

 

Here is my review of the beauty, managed to get a solid Ace Tanker :)

Selling the 13 57 bundled probably worked like a charm. Also, gotta keep the matchmaking a bit sane. Removing T8s from the MM pool and increasing T7 play could be ...interesting.

 

(Nevertheless a good idea to be consistent; happens to 'feel' a bit better for those who've owned it since release, ground it out in a marathon or bought it bundled previously.)

Everyone and their dog will be playing Frontline with their tier 8s anyway... I suspect Type 62 and 13 57 will have very, very easy life for next 4 weeks in WoT.

We have six days to decide, and perhaps Cobra will do a review on it by then...

I hope so :)

 

Had a cracking game yesterday (we lost but it was a good one), enemy team had a type 62 who took 6 kills and reset our cap attempt on 99% - I remember thinking that the Type 62 must have very good cammo rating/vision range as neither of our cappers saw him at all

I'm sure WG will give me a reason in the future to revive it ^_^

if you like lights and u can manage the low pen and poor depression is a good tank

for me even if i am a light player e25 and 13 57 are way more fun and unique

Selling this tank at such high price is wrong, honestly.

It's a tier 7 after all with some extras.

If it was standard I would have got it, but at that price, nope.

Skip.

If you like lights and you have a decent Chinese light crew then yes it's worth it.

 

It has nothing really exceptional going for it, but it's very good all rounder, it's more like a very good all round tier 7 medium (like what tier 7 meds should be, not the weak ones they currently are) than a light as it's not super fast but it has decent alpha, good DPM, good mobility, good gun handling, good camo and enough premium pen to deal with tier 9s.

 

Plus tier 7 seems to get better MM in my experience than say tier 8. 

 

Of all the premium lights that got changed to regular MM, it was the one that probably needed it the most as it was thoroughly underwhelming seeing tier 10.  Don't expect it to do anything magic as it has no super burst damage or super speed or insane camo, it's just decent at everything.

 

Except shell velocity, that is crap on both rounds.

Played over 1k in my type 62 and Simeon describes it perfectly. Key is the crew though, without it u will struggle.
