Is this really worth it?

Nah. As things stand right now they are worse LTs than soviets and with whellies around... you either end up with inferior LT or even more inferior MT depending on battle.

 

As with most chinese tanks you'd do better getting original rather than copy.

Even if that WZ was good, I probably wouldn't grind it, as I have enough grinds already (Ikv 65,KV 3, Cromwell, Wolverine, ec.) to not thinkabout adding another one. 

 

I haven't even gone down the Chinese light/medium/heavy lines (though I'm going down the TD line), so this event would be a waste, as I would get stuck on Tier IV and have no fun grinding a tank I force myself to play

Meh. Thats equivalent to some milion credits for 250k xp,  which takes a noticeable ammount of time/battles during 20 days of on-track. Thats like 10-20 battles with tier VIII prem. Or just two or three Frontline funsies. Getting Locust for thirtieth time is not warming up my blood either.

So I'll pass on "usefull" stuff. Maybe someone with less "impressive" garage could make use of it, but for me primary incentive was completing line which from stock IX to X require a bit more than 17k xp per day of on-track which makes it not very appealing considering how current random battles look.

Thebtier 8 and 9 are gud. The 10 is lackluster. Take it for what you will

It's worth it to me in that the credit purchase price of the tier 9 is 30% off, meaning that I now have the WZ-132A at 1.02 million credits less than the normal price.  I wasn't in any hurry to get it as I've plenty of other tanks to play, but figured quite a while ago it would be on track sooner or later and that I could wait.  Now that it is, I moved my crew in and will start playing so I can eventually unlock the tier 10 and complete the Chinese light tank branch.

In my personal opinion, I've played T6 up to T8 WZ light so far the line is dope. Bad camo rating but the gun is good, speed is ok. You just gotta play a little bit of passive scouting unless it's all T8 match. Don't (yolo scout).

For the bad camo rating, I use my improve equipment/camo net. Oh yeah not knocking anyone but the feedback you're going to get on light tanks are might be it ain't worth it from players that like to (YOLO) in their lights. 

But every tank style ain't for everyone. You got to fine play what's right and comfortable for you fam. Deuce my dude!!

Already had Type T-34, Type 58 and IS-2, so I just bought 59-16 at a discount and ran M5A1, Type T-34 and 59-16 for a while last night and will go a little tonight.  No plans on moving beyond 59-16 though, but I'll grind back and forth on IS-2 and 60G TD for the Swedish thing as I need modules for those.  The TD before the 60G can be fun also.:)  Gotta learn how to be more patient with the lights though.;)

I have all of the "tracked" tier 10 LT's in the garage or researched. I haven't purchased the american yet because I think the T49 is more fun.

 

I like the WZ but the gun is a bit unreliable. The HEAT round is quite nice for shooting at distance as there no pen loss at range and the 390 Alpha is pretty sweet. Also at 30 tons it is a very heavy light with a lot of horse power so ramming other lights is very viable. It's probably my favorite of the lot. It plays like a Medium / LT hybrid.

 

But of course the T-100 LT is just beastly.

The problem with it for me is the gun. Its so unreliable especially at any distance that its just better to use other LTs. Its  so fun to drive, but everytime i right click its sadfaces everywhere. The tier9 just feels more reliable all around. Especially with its good dpm

The tier 9 was fun, but that turret is pretty much paper thin... It will always have a special place for me. Got LT15-4 completed with honours in that one.

 

It's unfortunate that WG seems to think that it's a light so it should scout and therefore nerf the heck out of it's gun handling where as mediums should be dealing damage so great gun handling but they also get to keep best in game vision. I wouldn't have a huge issue with that it it were not for all of the corridor maps and tiny maps like ENSK / Mines.

I'm grinding to the WZ-132. I really like my 59-16 but this is a chance to grind higher. I already had the WZ-131 unlocked so I purchased it and moved my crew from my Medium Type 58 (which I use in my Type 59) into it for this On Track. I should have the WZ-132 unlocked pretty soon (this current Swedish mission is taking most of my time) and will move the 59-16 crew up into it. That's probably as far as I'll get. When the On Track is over I'll move my Type 58 crew back and sell the WZ-131.

 

Oh Tracks are almost always useful and profitable for me. This one is hard though as I'm not good at Light tanks. Oh well.

59-16 was best with autoloader.

Right. But atleast the 132A had a decent dpm so it could trade better with other lights. The 132-1 gets to shoot maybe once as other tanks esplode it
