Are these things any good? I honestly don’t know anything about either one. A decent amount of money, would need to be dang good for me to buy.

I searched the forum and didn't find anything on the WZ-122-2, but i have the WZ-111 (which i got for $4.99 in a limited time offer) and if you already own an IS-5 or IS-6, etc. then no need to pick that one up as it's just another IS-# spam tank.

It's the WZ-112-2.  I love this tank.  I made a thread about it.

 

http://forum.wotblitz.com/index.php?/topic/103123-the-best-is-variant/page__fromsearch__1

 

It's an IS variant without a pike nose, so it can be angled like regular tanks.  It's got a pretty hard turret, tough sides, high top end speed but weak power to weight ratio, it's DPM suffers from an interminably long reload, and it traverses slow.  I like it because it's got that low profile trollish IS shape but no pike nose, I can generate a lot of bounces in this thing.  I don't get a lot of damage in it, but it's great at holding positions and ticking off the reds.  It's kind of like the 252U in that if you play it right it's a defensive monster but the low DPM combined with the typical russian trollish gun make it hard to put up big damage numbers.

A good heavy driver knows how to make shots bounce off their armor, how to use cover while fighting at the front, when to get out there and just take the shot to protect his team, to keep the reds attention focused so his team can flank, and to consistently do damage while all of that happens.

112-2 is good, but the 111 is underwhelming, even for that style of tank.

 

Good easy heavy tank. I wouldn't pay this price for it but that's because I got it when it was in $5 crates.

Me too.  I was free to play forever, but lately I'll spend $5 or so on special deals.  I got the tank in the first crate.  BTW, gambling is a sin.

Well pretty soon crates will be a thing of the past in the U.S and probably Euro as well.  WG will take a serious hit w/o the ability to garner all this money from people buying crates like candy.

They'll come up with a way to make the money back.  They're good at that kind of stuff.  Probably selling avatars, or Blitz themed vodka.

WG made a slew of money pre-crate. 

  Just expect new premium tanks to cost more than before. 

 

Also I would expect another credit economy ‘fix’ like 2.8 to make tier 5-10 less affordable without premium time AND premium tanks.

Sorry I haven’t aced the Smasher yet - So I’m still ruining tier 6-8

didn't you get the 111 cheap because of a bug with Amazon?

Yes that is very truth and depressing thing that will happen to counter the loss of crate income.  However, it makes you wonder how much tank sales will slump if they raise the prices even more then.  I mean I quit buying any T8 at 10-15k gold (with maybe an exception or two)..there is just no way I would pay that much for a T8 past the first few years of this game.

I absolutely won't consider buying anymore premiums if they go any higher at all though.  I can buy entire games for the prices of single tanks these days at T7+.

Just drive any IS-# (premium or otherwise), eat your dog, and sell your enemies' organs to international transplant recipients... boom, Chinese heavy experience.

Please, don't make generic and cliche'd assumptions about the Chinese people... I guess it's now time to educate yet another misled netizen.

 

Organ harvesting has nothing to do with your average Joe, and they don't have a say in party policies either. Therefore, please don't associate the terrible deeds of the Communist government with the Chinese citizens. 

 

Dogs are a traditional delicacy in the south-east region of the country, yes. But two things - first, the dogs eaten are/were NOT pets. They are specifically bred for that purpose. They aren't just stolen off the streets or some poor puppy lover. Furthermore, China is a huge country, and very few people outside that small region actually eat dogs regularly.

 

Can't tell if your post is satire, so there's that.

Mike, I know.  Relax.  Watch about an hour of old George Carlin or Sam Kinison routines and I'll seem slightly less offensive in comparison.

lol np mate. I was raised in Canada so I really don't have that much affinity to my country of origin. However, on the other hand, I also won't hesitate to correct a misguided netizen. o7

who is responsible for the Chinese Heavy tank? Government or average Joe? If government, then Blartch’s comment is both funny and relevant and non-offensive to the average Chinese netizen or citizen. Thanks for trying though.
