Is the guy who wanted that tank bought it during the black market or not ? Now he has the opportunity 

The skin is great but other than that 

 

He had value as it was a rare tank but not so much now...

I was going to get it but then I saw the price and realised you can get the m6a2e1, a tank that is not just rarer but that, in my opinion, is quite a bit better and still save some money.

 

Wish there was an option to buy the tank at a slightly reduced price instead of having to get the bundle.

So just the regular WZ-111 that can't pounce on anything faster than a snail or a TOG II.

As usual WG selling overpriced bundles with misleading and incomplete information.

 

The smart thing would have been to sell the Alpine Tiger camo for 5 Euros or so, but no, let's to anything but being smart.

I actually wanted this sexy beast for black market, but for credits.:(

Would have paid even 40 milions for it... Oh well.

Terrible gun handling, you will get sniped all day by opponents who keep their distance. I'd only consider it if Super Vents came with it, and could be bought for credits.

That fancy paint job will surely help you with your 186mm of pen when you come up against a IS-7.....I mean Defender......

Surely one of the most beautiful models in the game, but as Cobra 6 mentioned, it is let down by by it's gun. This tank can easily be outplayed due to its lack of pen and gun handling. Tanks like Super Pershings, T29's, and even FV4202's and T54 mod. 1's can bait and bounce shots from the WZ-111, Alpine Kitten and 112 (oh yes, don't forget IS6).

 

If WG could give some attention to these machines it would be great for MM, as I'm sure more people would play them. I personally aren't very fond of my Defender, and I'd much rather play my Alpine Tiger, but I know I'll get punished in game for doing so. I know the tanks has preferential MM, but really, 186mm on a tier 8 heavy is useless, unless the bump up the gun handling so that you at least stand a chance of hitting weak spots.

damage per shot is average nowadays...like nothing special to put this tank forward

 

frontal armor is not good - it is bad - paper-kind bad

 

price is not stated directly on offer but rather you have to click BUY NOW first in order to see the whopping amount - price is way too high for a skinned WZ111

 

other highlights of this tank are:

 

- bad gun handling

 

- outrageously low penetration

 

- prone to ammo rack damage

 

It was a good tank 4 years ago - but not today

 

Not today

 

 

07:20 Added after 6 minute

Yesterday I met E100

 

at the beginning of the battle, he said he is going to drown.

 

He went straight to the corner of the map - pushing me sideways and blocking me halfway there

 

Then he waited till everybody is dead and drowned himself.

 

Solve this WG

 

Bots farming exps and credits and marathon missions!

 

Suicides!

 

Massive gold spam tier X!

 

FV4005, FV 183, Foch 6 shots autoloader - but you took WTE from players??????????????????????????

i don't think you will miss something important, regarding this tank. you will be frag material in tier 9 games, and you will have to spam a lot of gold to do something, which will deny the purpose of a premium tank :)

Haven't seen Simona say 'nice tank.Don't have it' for a while......that was one of the nicer things about the forum :-)

To balance the mostly negative comments above, I have to say that I still like this tank. However, I do not play it like a heavy but more like a heavium and usually go the medium line with this one and get real close.  In close quarters against meds it can brawl quite well as then the turret will bounce quite some shots. Heck, even did some blocking missions in it and the added bonus is that you are not let down too much with the low pen of the gun..

 

But if you want it the easy way just get a Russian heavy which can do the same but better..

This is so true. I like my WZ-111, but only works in a good match up
