Pick off enemies from afar with the well-camouflaged WZ-120-1G FT, a tremendous Chinese destroyer adept at lurking in the shadows.

You would be crazy to buy this package if you have a tank you don't want and if u have surplus gold . You would be better to use the Trade-In event now to trade your tank you dont want for this tank if u want it for basically half the price if u have expensive heavies you don't want :)

Well, atleast WZ-120-1G FT is actually good tank and the only chinese TD worth to have. But as mentioned in previous post, just use trade in-event to get it.

At the moment I'd say this is the best premium turretless TD, if not just flat out the best premium TD. I've called this thing the "Chinese Wrecking Ball" or a "turretless medium", as it can do a little bit of everything. It has some armour, though it's not entirely reliable, it has very nice mobility both in a straight line and on hull traverse. The gun traverse is one of the not so great attributes, which can lead to losing your full aim a lot, though the aim time is not horrible. The gun handling is what I would call "temperamental", so not outright derpy but sometimes unpredictable. You'll still be able to hit weak spots most of the time when fully aimed. Good pen and nice alpha with a very good rate of fire. It doesn't have a lot of gun-depression, so that's something to keep in mind when looking for a firing position, so you might want to study the art of peak-a-boom.

 

Would I buy it in a bundle? No.

Yeah I remember this one from strongholds, it outspots light tanks somehow and turns so fast you can't flank it. Hate coming up against these.

Is it balanced? Not really but then again very few of the new premium tanks are nowadays.

This is a great troll tank on frontlines, that are also coming in 2021? Right?

Great TD with as very well said before, a "temperamentfull" gun. I don't agree this is the only Chinese TD worth having, the tier 7 imo is great fun as well and the grind leads you through a more then acceptable tier 6 as well.  Looking forward to give this premium some serious mileage once the Holiday event is completely over.

Later this year apparently, they said there was something they wanted to fix/adjust with the game mode first. Might be some optimizations... but who knows.

Very true - if there is a balancing factor or two - I would say no turret - (A deal breaker for some but with the traverse speed it almost gets away with it) and I would say the gun can troll you big-time. I see  a lot of aimed shots hit the dirt, but this thing is great when it can get up close/mid range and get some hefty shots in. I love mine - rarely a poor game, many times a loss but always a high lolfactor

There are still performance issues with the mode though and then there is the jumping aim issue.

"Sorry kid, the food store is closed because the lights in the bread section are not working!" ... wtf

That jumping aim issue is not a big enough deal to delay the mode for so long !!!!

And I'm one of the players who had that issue too.

The positives outweigh the couple of issues far too strongly. Ability to grind tanks / crews / credits + ability to play in an almost gold ammo spam free environment + you can play with friends + ability to choose your own flank / location to play from + the battle not ending when your tank is destroyed = the ability to redeem yourself with other tanks + being able to repair your tank + using special abilities like airstrikes etc. Sure, the 2 maps get a bit dull at the end of the week, a 3rd map would be nice to have. I'd even play Frontline if there were no prizes involved. It's just such a good gaming experience.

I freaking hate Randoms where 1 afk player, or 1 guy with 25k+ battles who never knew how deep some water is (and never bothered to test it in a training room but rather started testing it in a 3v3 or 2v2 situation) can essentially POOP over your statistics by giving you + your whole team a defeat / draw where it should have been a win.
The statistics free element is amazing. For all modes that have no statistics. I love collecting Frontline medals as well despite them not actually giving you anything besides bragging rights. (Apparently when they tested frontline they'd give you bonds - I wish they'd bring this back.)
Or you know, they could just put in something like "non-stat" Randoms where you can grind your tanks / crews etc. for free.

I know I'm going on a tangent by why the FUK in 2021 do we still have stock tanks / +/- 2 tier MM and handicapped beta maps like Abbey / Ensk / Mannerheim line?
