as I promised yesterday to some of you in the comment section, went to check what were the changes for the 112 Premium Chinese tier 8 HT and statistically everything is the same, the model hasn’t changed either besides a few polygons HOWEVER the price went from 12250 Gold to 10500 Gold.
Also, and thanks to “Rizki Bayu Baskoro” the SEA staff wrote the following: “The main difference between this tank and the WZ-111 is the frequent occurrence of fires due to the internal arrangement of the tank’s modules. The 112’s fuel tank will now be moved away from the frontal armour, where it was previously easily penetrated and set ablaze. This can potentially reduce the occurrence of fires in this tank.” Its a Hitbox change.
Hope this satisfies your curiosity.

It was said that the fuel tanks were moved away front he front, so you don’t get fires from frontal shots. Any news about that?
confirmed according to WoT ASIA page
Oh I see, thanks for that dear. strange because there is no model difference from what’s presented. Will edit.
The initial source, which I think was WG ASIA, initially reported that it would have no more frontal fuel tanks.
Rita i just noticed a thing… now you can buy any amount of gold, other then bundles or tagged on packets.
Thats an really odd and really welcome change for all paying players.
You might dont know that issue, but at times you lack a small amount – or an odd amount… and we would had got get 3 small or 2 big backs… both of which come more expensive, or you got something left (you dont need)
@ZombieFX: Maybe I’m misunderstanding you, but you have always been able to buy gold in the premium shop…
You now can buy it CUSTOM:
they snuck it in somewhere between patches…
I often was in the store- getting small amounts, or laughing at some dumb offers…
So do current 112 owners get gold to compensate for the reduced price? Otherwise thats just not cool WG
Is this another WG joke or they are serious 😀
That’s… Underwelming news
Great. Do I get my money back?
This tank is compared to the IS6 or the IS3A pretty bad and is to this day also the second most expensive tier 8 premium tank. The armor is kind of ok, but with big weakspots (cupolas and lower glacis), while the IS6 for example has not really any weakspot on the front. An impenetrable upper glacis (who is shooting at this thing anyway) is no compensation for overwhelming all around armor. The bad gun handling and comparable low reload time (even the IS2 is in this aspects better, not to mention IS6 and IS3A) make this tank not much fun to play. It is of all of the tier 8 heavies the one I fear the least as a lower tier tank,because there is always a chance to penetrate this thing from almost any angle.
So how do they even came to the conclusion to change only the gold price instead of buffing this tank slightly (especially the gun handling and probably the reload time and the ground resistance)?
To all potential buyers: Don’t buy it. Bad mistake. It’s neither worth the 12250 nor the 10500 gold.
with 220 pen im shooting the upper plate… oh whats that ? he angled ? well shoot the cheeks
You get noting,good day sir. -AxE-
Do you get gold back if you bought it for the old price?
When on earth do you EVER get your money back if a product changes price…
“But please mister car salesman, I bought this car last year for 5000 euros and now it’s only 4000. Can I please get back 1000 euros?”
Come on, get real: this is wargaming… ofc they give it back!
What you think they are- money grabbing monsters?
People got a refund for Panther88, so there’s a precedent
That was a single instance in which people got a refund for a fairly new premium tank. The 112 is is really not that new. So yes, there is a precedent, but the two situations aren’t really the same…
In the end, there is no real obligation for them to provide anyone with a refund.
It’s never the same
Reminds me when I bought my E-25 for gold and then they changed the policy of if you have the tank already and get another you get credits instead and then handed out E-25s and I got my gold converted into credits. Thanks Wargaming as I will never buy a premium tank again.
I hope you got your gold back. That would be nice – however probably will not happen 🙁
2k lees gold…
Knew it blew…
so……. do I get my gold back?
hahah sure and as compensation : a hug from serb himself!
Actually, that would be awesome if Serb came to my house.
That’s 10€ cheaper for a tier 8 premium tank with preferencial matchmaking and really good frontal armor if the lowerplate is hidden. If IS-6 is removed that tank is gonna be the new target for wallet kids with 1k battles.
You do great work, Rita
Minor buff, but a buff non the less.
Pretty sure in the past when premiums have been nerfed they have offered refunds and when they have reduced price they have refunded gold. Just FYI for all the trolls thinking that’s a dumb question. Ie Panther 8.8.
Only Panther88 ever got a price reduction that I know of, but yes there was a refund indeed.
Proof to my comment above idiot trolls.
Before you go around calling people ‘idiot trolls’, you might want to think about it first. That was a single incident for a tank that was only fairly new. Which was because WG said they had made it to expensive to begin with. That is NOT the case here. The 112 has been in the game quite a bit longer already, the two situations are different.
WG might decide to offer refunds, but they are in no real obligation to do so.
That’s their big rebalance? U sure this isn’t the workings of the NA server?
Rita, this is big 112 reballance ? Is this a joke…if so, after 10.0, and Cyprus, all that was for nothing.
Your comment makes no sense…
Yes, like 112 buff. Tell me, How 112 can be competitive to IS 6 ? Soviet tank has to be better in almost everything. Btw on Cyprus they spoke about listening community, all 112 fans, get their buff, too bad its nothing, that will make this tank better in compere to is6….
Because Chinese steel isn’t as stronk as Sovyet shteel, you dolt!
wtf, no buff stat armor just like wz 111?? T_T
Highest dmg game EVER recorded in 112 was mine – this ,,buff” really hurted my feelings…
If it involved any use of HEAT it’s pretty worthless for us.
I don’t understand the people saying they should get a refund.That would be convenient,I know but why would they give you a refund? The tank didn’t change at all.. It’s like saying you should get your 20euros back from a game because it changed it’s price from 60 to 40 euros..
Thats it, less fires….. gdammit wargaming, yeah i guess its a welcome change, but thats it?!? The is6 which is considerrably better than a 112 laughs at this change, and “The main difference between this tank and the WZ-111 is the frequent occurrence of fires” what about the enhanced mobility of the wz or the wz better gun handling or the wz better side armour, come on wargaming be serious, i hope there are more changes coming.
+1, bro… ^^
This thing needs major buffs to be playable.
– Frontal lower plate buff to IS-6 levels is the most important buff
– Gun reload buff
– Gun handling buff
Improve lower plates on all Chinese heavies tier 8 and up, prem or otherwise.
The tier 10 heavy can be penetrated frontally by a Tier 6 lights. It’s a fucking joke.
112 improve ROF to same as IS6 and reduce aimtime to 3 rather than 3.4 possiby alongside slight gun disperson buff. Then this tank will be balanced.
So no changes what so ever on stats. The IS6 if getting buff after buff but for some biased reason this does not get anything. And when do we get the HD model for 112 and T-34-3?
So, is WG going to do the right thing by refunding the Gold price difference? Or are they going to give the credit equivalent…or, just say fuck you suckers, to those who paid the 12k price?
doesn’t matter any tank can be set on fire if get shoted by HE Shells. 😛
[…] 112 Tank Changes? […]
[…] -RG: Changes on 112 can be found here. […]
For some reason I can’t find it in the Tech Tree. Do you guys have the same ‘problem’?
It got removed dear, I warned multiple times on the recent Q&As
Aww, too bad, just when I wanted to pick one up. Guess I need to read your posts more often as well 😉
I can’t find the 112 in the Tech Tree nor in the in-game shop…
