Just get the tech tree Chinese tier VII light, it's much better

A great little light tank very similar to the old WZ-131.

Compared to the current WZ-131 you trade some mobility to get much better DPM, better gun handling and more view range.


Here is my review of this beauty:

 

ps: One question WG, the engine health of the Type62 is 105 compared to the 190 of the WZ-131, can you bring these more in line?

I wanted to buy it so badly whole last holiday season. It wasn't on offer back then and now I'm not interested in Chinese lights anymore. Thank you WG for saving some money for me. :D

I always wanted it, but I have the Type 64 and can't really justify this.

I have the Type64 as well and I'd take the WZ-131 over it any day of the week. Somehow I feel tier 7 lights, tier for tier, are more effective then Tier 6 lights in randoms.

Type64 is king of tier 6 in skirmishes etc but in randoms it feels a bit underwhelming to me.

Nice that you put offers in gold this year... But still nothing interesting for me to use my precious goldzzz...

You like the 62 so much that you have only played it 13 times since you got it. You are the one who started the whole #walletclosed thing just because you wanted it so badly, for crying out loud. I am so disappointed in you Cobra.

Why is there no free BIA crew with this tank?

At least then it'd be a worthwhile consideration whether to buy or not.

I played it quite a lot on my brothers account who owned it since years as he stopped playing.

Shortly after the Type62 went on sale I took my sabbatical from WoT, have been AFK since then and only recently started playing occasionally again.

 

As for those 13 games: 92% win rate and 3400wn8 average. ;)

 

But yes, you are right I need to start playing it again as soon as I find my WoT groove again, currently sticking to shitty tanks to get back in the rhythm.

 

AND, the #WalletClosed meme is actually very much alive on the forums so that is nice ^_^

Isn't account sharing against the terms of service?

Well, sharing is against the ToS but if he is visiting and logged in on my machine I'm at liberty to try out tanks I don't own on my account.

 

Account sharing to get (CW)rewards (for which this line is in the ToS) is something completely different ;)

Ahh the tank they gave me for free in a contest, not a bad one either... but paying for it? Well then the Type 64 is most certainly the better choice.

 

On a funny side note, then I actually do well in this tank compared to most of my other ones. :great:

Seems the leaked advent list is spot on so far.

If so, tomorrow there’ll be a 360 day premium account offer and on Friday the Thunderbolt.
