Only get it if you really need/want a Czech premium for crew training. It's not a competitive tank, it's not unique in any way and it's not particularly fun (At least for me) to play. 


I didn't answer in the poll because none of the options fit my opinion on the matter.

Second option, except I really don't care about getting a refund.


It's in its entirety a mediocre tank who's only purpose is for you to crew train through. But as a crew trainer it is considerably poor as the tank needs a good crew to be any form of useful in the battle.

Everything about the tank is either average or below average which is very noticeable when it is in a tier filled with exceptional tanks.



You'd be better off just crew training using one of the mid-tier TT tanks.

I you need a Czech premium, go for it. It's not as bad as many say. It's just a weak tank with a nice gun. If you don't need a Czech premium, there are much better premium tanks out there to buy.

I need the crew trainer or I would not have gotten this. That being said, if you use it as a support sniper and keep out of sight, it can put out a bit of damage, but I had trouble earning 1st MOE. It is not consistent, of course play hasn't been consistent since the holidays, so, grain of salt.  


In conclusion, I would recommend the Zizka if you aren't an up front player or can alter your play to accommodate its weaknesses, but not to less competent players.

i got sixt sense on it since yesterday....that makes you not feel like a big xp pinata, as you are a big pinata when in the open....everyone shoots you(like the cdc or leopard)

I absolutely despise this tank. Yet I have unicum wn8 with it. People must play it terribly! And I don't blame them because honestly every game I played it has been a nightmare. Even games where I did high amounts of damage, I could've done way more if that gun would work better.

I voted no but the most important part of a crew trainer to me is if it is fun to play. This tank isn't for me. As said above, it's tolerable with 6th. But, everyone already knows you are an auto lock tank. No need in aiming. I've either had really good games or really bad ones, very few in between. It has absolutely no business playing in tier8. Of course the type59, Mutant, 131, etc. all needed PMM.

BTW, it essentially has no premium ammo unless you have your burrel stuck up their but. Which you never want to be that close to anything anyway.

Played just a few games in it and it's okayish. 


Sovietdeath above hit the highs and lows pretty well. Damage and mobility are nice, but it's not much at snapshotting and has stunningly little gun depression. And HEAT as it's premium round is garbage, but I'm not a fan of HEAT, so your mileage may vary.


Basically, it's just a mediocre 34-88.

If you're planning on researching the tank line then its worth getting one for crew training, but its not a great tank otherwise.

I like mine. But it's a difficult tank to use. Not really good at anything. However, that HEAT round works great on Japanese Heavies!

I trained a crew just as fast in the t34/100 as i did in cyrus the virus

So ummmm why do you need it again?

It's not a good tank in a lot of situations. Because of the alpha if you luck out and get some good shots while not being shot at because your team is helping it is good.  You can have some really good games in it but it really depends on your team.  It isn't a stand alone good tank, it is a support tank.  If you have spotters and heavies doing their job it can be a good tank.  If you are on your own you are driving a really poor tier VI medium.  I got one just to get a head start on a crew. That crew went into a tier IX. Then I trained another crew up to Sixth Sense then that crew went into the tier VI autoloader elite tank for training.   This tank is officially retired and will only come out for parades now.  It's sole purpose was to jump start Czech crew before the line came out.  As an everyday premium it is sub par to many other premiums out there. It performs like a stock VI tank.

I like it. Play like a French tank and its fine. Hit Reds and dont get hit by the Reds. If your gonna take a hit, make sure its to remove a Red from the battle.
Vents, rammer and GLD essential. BIA a must. Snap Shot, Smooth Ride and Clutch Braking would definitely be an asset.

Even without all these perks, I enjoy it.

I wanted the crew training, but I really dislike this tank.  


The gun will troll you so hard.  It's maddening. 


A crew with out camo or recon perks keeps you pretty much spotted at all times. 


The tier 6 tt tank is better in almost everyway for me.

After grinding out two crew skills I feel like I never want to play it again. I'm not happy with it.

I like it but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It has the obvious premium upsides, but everyone knows that. As far as how it plays, it isn't as good as it should be. I have fun in it but I wouldn't suggest spending real money on it, when there are much better TT tier 6 mediums. I think WG should've gave it more of a standout quality,  but it really has none.
