Ok, so I'm absolutely loving the WZ-131 at Tier VII (definitely a keeper)

Just unlocked & purchased the WZ-132 & I was wondering if anyone here has thoughts on the IX & X?

Basically, are they worth the effort?

I've enjoyed the T54 ltwt & the T100, also the RU but the Gerry X was absolute cow chutney so I'm loathe to waste time grinding the Chinese.

Thoughts?

This.

 

And the tier 10 is meh, its behind the the 13-105 and T-100 lt, and those are hardly the strongest tier 10s as it is.

 

The tier 8 is nice though from what I remember.

That's a shame to hear - on paper at least it looks pretty good.

May very well end up being one of those I'll purchase as & when there are available funds.

Well, with the Lt234423423423 out now on tier 8 and having the black dog as well, I have no need to keep the WZ-132 and will be unlocking the WZ-132A soon.

 

Also, I do have the Type62 so no need to keep the WZ-131 anymore.

You know, I almost sold the 131 but enjoyed it so much I've decided to keep it.

I purchased Ze German Bulldog when it was on sale in November (I think) and it's tremendous fun - possibly the most fun I've had at Tier VIII in quite some time.

Will likely purchase it when it's unlocked & give it a go - only if I have the spare credits tho :)

I actually found 132A pretty decent, it hits stuff if you aim, but loses the ability to snapshot like tier 8 132.
Tier 10 is absolute trash in my opinion, you will never hit anything with it if you move alot, if you play more passivelly, you get teamkilled. It has nothing going for it.

Keep your crew on the tier 7 and enjoy, it is the high point of the line.

There are some pretty good t7 lights out there (amx 57, t71)  but the WZ is still solid.

Aye, up until the WZ, my favourite by far was the T71 (both variants).

I had the 59-16 when it still had the autoloader, loved it - the tank I learnt to scout in*. I loved the 131, and kept it untill the Type 62 came on sale this year. I loved the 132 so much I ground out the medium and the light from it. I am not enjoying the T9 though. I am really struggling to grind through the modules, let alone get to TX.

*I'm still not great but I've completed up to LT14-3, just the 7000 dmg one to get.

The tier 8 is great.

 

The tier 9 sucks at the moment, we'll see when I upgrade it.

 

Tier X should be the heaviest light, with stronk turret. :girl:

The 59-16 and the WZ-131 are good but look at their premium counterparts, the Type 62 and the Type 64. The standard tier 6 and 7 are crippled in almost every aspect compared to those 2!

The t9 is not that bad but the t10 is one of the worst pieces of crap you can find in the game.

Except that it doesn't fortunately....a light scout with pref MM would be rather pointless

I know dude, I kind of regreted  not buying the type 62 when on sale some time ago.

I was thinking of buying the Type 64 just for team battles but i'd hate to give WG money considering they trashed the 59-16 and the WZ-131 like this!
