  Type 62 was built in... 1962, as its name suggests!

 

Oh, wow!

Well, at least they didn't name the "medium" bundeled version 'standard' this time, so there is at least some improvement.

Somewhat of a potato launcher with its low shell velocity, but other than that it's quite nice.

yes take it out of the garage and enjoy your defeats!
like type 59 the only reason I don't play them is because it gets me into losing teams!

It is sluggish than wz131 but with 390m viewrange,it is a better spotter.Also dpm is much higher and aiming is slightly better.
I dont know, if you need a chinesee light crew trainer so be it.But russian light line is better than chinesee thanx to bias?

 Developed as a lighter version of the famous Type 59, the Type 62 was built in... 1962, as its name suggests!

 

Famous Type 59 - you mean before you crippled it down with nerfs for EU/NA/RU while China can have their own proper version even in gold? That mention of 1962 is what? Like look how good we are, we offer you tank from newer then 1960 era which is our limit (but please do not pay attention to even newer and scifi tanks in our game........)

 

Block Quote

 With its low profile and the proper crew training, the Type 62 would be perfect as a passive scout.

 

Nope. Type 64 is better for crew training, Type 62 is just worse WZ-131 and passive scouting in WoT is mostly dead because of broken MM, broken teams and scifi accuracy/snapshot abilities of especially ruskies ;-)

 

BTW how to passively spot in this game when like during Sunday 13 losts in a row, always top with scout when the games are 1 vs 29 (3 vs 27 at best)? Or when you get Malinovka encounter, you go to proper spot bush on hill right on start of the battle, but 1 sec after you arrive you get hit by own Conway talking bs you could go spot, then followed by 50TP clown trying to push you down the hill so that you crash, then followed by T95 constantly whole game yelling that you are not spotting (yes, all 3 of them personal rating under 5000, but over 20k battles) and during all of that all of them on hill, no one around river or on field except of me who went there to at least slow down progress of enemy and to cover our 3 arties which are helpful on this map. Of course we lost and I died last. But please tell me how to spot for these imbeciles you are constantly allowing and supporting in this game even via this constant flow of premium tanks and not perma banning them as it should be? Hmmmm?

 But if you want to play it more aggressively, you can rely on the good accuracy and firepower of its gun, even on the move, and thus support your team as a proper flanker!

 

 

Good accuracy....... you know you are not talking about ruskie tank, right? And not even starting about shots on the move. Support your team.......yeah what teams? Enough said about teams you allowed to happen during last 2 years in above text. Proper flanker.........muhehe sure, against those 750 alpha and such guns snapshoting you in full speed on 550m when they are on the move. Sure you can flank them..........in like 10% of battles when they are one shot :D

 If your play style fits in one of the categories mentioned above, add the Type 62 to your garage now!

 

Not possible. Not only because of above mentioned problems, but as well because you forgot to put real discount on that tank plus your forgot standard offer (which will be anyway without discount)

 

 

BTW for some reason you constantly forget to mention during sales of premium lights that people need to be prepared that Tier 10 lights are worse then tier 9 lights (not only because of penetration on distance) because of your scifi trumped up reasons. Not nice from you :P

By the way why are they promoting this as a flanker when they have said that they are against flanking maneuvers? (referring to their reasoning on the Kharkov rework) :P

I have it and the only thing this tank is good at is passive scouting...  to do some damage you have to press 2. 

I strongly recommend WZ-131 if you wanna have fun and there's a big chance that at the end of game you'll earn more credits with the WZ as you hit more shots and you don't have to press 2 so often. :great:

these once "rare" tanks are sold way too often!

Same for AMX 13-57, E25, leFH18B2,...

what offer comes next? Type 59 and the M6A2E1, so that everyone has them in the garage?  *dislike* ;-)

Oh no, get ready for the Defender soon then.....

 

The game will be flooded with them, the world will end, and your computer my crash:D

 

 

 

 

But yes you are right, too many premiums, too often, no Chrysler K though, I preferred the voting system to this constant barrage of premium tanks.

Was going to buy it, and then saw it was in a bundle, it wasn't that long since you promised to not sell tanks only in bundles due to complaints from both the community and CCs, what happened? Too greedy? Well you're losing money since more people would buy if it was only the tank.

actually this is good that not so many people buy it! otherwise you will face the same premium tanks in every tier 5-7 match, like the e25 when it was on sale...

I have it, it is a good tank in the hands of a skillful player.

With current MM and how WG-EU handles things I wouldn't recommend the tank...also not spending any more money until they show some progress on fixing stuff.

 

As it is now the only way they are going now is the Milkyway doing anything but improving the game...just money money money money.  Improving this otherwise fun game and making it a better gaming experience seems to be of no interest. :/
