So. I'm trying to decide whether to trade in my WZ-111 for the Alpine Tiger or not.

 

Things that I have done that are related:

  • Traded in my BlackDog for the non-GF version
  • Have unhistorical Camo turned off.
  • Don't even play the WZ much (at all)

So yeah, I do kinda like my tanks looking like tanks, and not party busses.

  • On the other hand, the Alpine Tiger does look really cool

 

So... Should I trade it in for the decorated version, or is it lipstick on a pig?

With 175 std pen, its only going to look good sitting unused in the garage surely.

Will be buffed to 182 next patch iirc, but it is still too low.

I can make 175 pen work just fine. After all, it's not a slow tank. Getting on a heavy's side is not hard, and shots pen easily then.

 

I play it like a heavy medium whenever possible tho.

 

@OP - The Alpine Tiger is super sexy if you ask me :B get it, definitely.

In exactly the same boat. Did opt for the swap, though. If only because I really like cats. (The thoroughly contented purring from the background might be freely translated to: I agree, and when do I get food next?)

I know I have the 112.

 

Being expected to brawl IS3s, Defenders, Libertes and O-HOs with 182 pen is dumb as s*$!, and thats just the same tier.

Just send a ticket to trade my WZ-111.

 

Would probably have bought the Alpine, but 44 euro is way too much

I've often wondered whether it is worth trading in my CDC for a Ravioli. But then I remember that the CDC looks like a tracked UFO and that the games itself wouldn't be any different and so it isn't worth the effort.

 

Edit: autocomplete sucks.

Budget? :unsure: The swap is completely free of charge.

 

...unless you don't already own the regular WZ-111. :hiding:

I did the swap , it might as well look nice in garage even if it won't be played.
