Hello, Is WZ 131 better tank then premium type 62? https://tanks.gg/com..._6.5.17_13.4.1 

 

Type 62 only have better dpm, right? Maybe better camo? Why  is then so expensive and rare on sale? Sorry for bad English. :)

It also has 20 meters more viewrange, which is a huge deal for a light. If you don't mind having to shoot HEAT every now and then it's a solid tank.

How about you look at the comparison you linked? You may notice it also gets better aimtime and 20m more viewrange, which for a T7 scout is very nice.

Because that's what WG decided.

Pity that after the changes to light tanks, I have never played the tier 7 wz anymore. It used to be one of my favorites :( I tried something though, I switched to the 85mm gun on the tier 8 wz-132. It's not as nice as the tier 7 used to be (with scout mm), but it comes close :)

I used to love running the 85mm on the 132 in team battles. Great for taking out other lights. Shame they removed the better 85mm with the light tank rebalance

"Only better DPM" doesn't quite highlight the fact that we're comparing 2050 DPM to 1670 DPM. 2 seconds longer reload for 20 extra damage is a pretty massive difference. The aiming time is also 0.20 better and as was mentioned above 20m of view range is a huge deal as well.

145 pen is a dealbreaker. if i wanted tier 6 pen a whole tier higher id play tier 6 where you dont meet tier 9 tanks every match. that kind of pen is useless in tier 7 let alone 8-9.

I picked up mine when it was on sale, here you can see my review of the Type62 compared to the new and old WZ-131

Before I bought mine I compared it to other tier VII lights and the stats are somewhat comparable to the amx 13 57 imo. Its a little sluggish and does need premium ammo against higher tiers occasionally, but all in all it's a solid jack-of-all-trades light tank. It's been a while since I played the WZ 131 and my crew certainly is better now (50% in their 5th skill), but I'd say that it's both better than the WZ and worth every cent I payed. 10/10 tank, would recommend.

It’s a great tank, it’s as much fun playing as the old pre balancing wz131

I don't know as i don't remember how 131 was because i played it so long ago. And is probably a different animal now after all the changes too.

But i do like Type62. Got it relatively recent and in two times i got on Malinovka i got Patrol Duty and if i was to be more attentive to my damage count i could had actually been able to complete last LT-15. Basically played too safe late game because was unaware that i was so close to finish the mission and basically gave last damage and assists to my allies.
