I just started playing this tank. Holy crap, this tank is a hidden gem for me! It plays like a sportier version of the T21. Or possibly a Type 64-lite. I'm really enjoying this thing. When fully updated, it has great mobility, good camo and a reasonable gun. It can actively or passively spot. It's great when top tier and can still be very effective when bottom tier. I play it a lot like I play the Russian T-50. I put the Chinese Christmas camo from a couple of years ago and it really looks sharp too. The only downside is that I only have about 10 games left before it's not longer useful for Battle Pass and I'll have to put it aside for a couple of months. Anyone else really love this beauty?

Yeah I love that sneaky little bastard - luv lights in general and have a lot of favs in that class, but have found myself only playing 3-5 or so games then logging off recently, and realize now that it's almost always starting with a match in 59-16, then its followup WZ-131, then maybe another tank (mostly just to score Tank Rewards). So lately it's been very consistent that I play a game or two in that tank, and it's usually a blast.

 

Holy crap: I knew I liked it/did well in it - but I just checked and I have a 5570 PR rating in the damn thing, which puts me at #5 overall?!? I just need a handful more games to officially enter the rating lists...

yeah, it's a very fun tank.  It's not as good now with some of the current tanks in the game, but will always be a fun tank to drive.

I got mine right before they nerfed the auto cannon. That was a lot of fun.

Well, 24 games and I have to put it way for a couple of months as I've hit the Battle Pass points cap. Much sadness. I did manage to ace it but not enough games to mark it - only 48% on the 1-mark journey. But now I can now run the WZ-131. Tow2, you're right. The WZ-131 seems to be lots of fun too. It seems very similar and slightly better than the Type 62.
