My vote goes for Chrysler. Saw so many of them in the early weeks, but nowadays close to zero. Saw one earlier today and did not immediately recognise it, realised I could not even remember the previous time.

it depends how many games you play and at what tiers you mostly play.

i'm usually playing tier 7 and 8 and i see the chrysler quite often. i know for sure i've seen it at least 10 times today. then again i played 70 games :)

 

but yeah, it does seem there's less chryslers than there used to be. maybe people realised they're a credit sink so they started to play them less.

You'd think more people would be playing them since they're so gamebreakingly OP. Allegedly.

it needs loads of credits to be truly OP. with 198 pen it can't pen anything in the usual tier 9 and 10 battles, hence it needs to spam premium ammo and that gets expensive really fast.

 

in a similar fashion with the pz2j, but not to that extent.

The topic raises a legitimate and, I dare say, recently overlooked question.

Oh, the Mutant is also quite rare nowadays because only early customers got that and it was never sold again since.

It wasn't.

They did the same thing the first time the Pnz2j went up on the store as opposed to a code.

The reason you don't see a lot of chryslers is because they are shite, they were massively overhyped courtesy of WG advertising department  Quickybaby but in reality the defender, Patriot, Liberte, Primo, Skorpion... etc. etc. etc are all far better.

The Chrysler sold so well, due to some very clever negative advertising.  That, or talk about a storm in a tea cup.

T34B and IS-6B... The first two days I saw no one. Then suddenly I came across one in each tier 8 game for a few days. Not seen anyone since. 59 Patton is one to. Saw several a day for a few days. Then one a week. Now I barely see one a month.

 

Defender sold fairly well for EU. Most stats sites agree that we have around 30K here. But the amount of battles the before the past 14 days on the last update was fairly slim vs others. Even the KanonenJagdPanzer did see more action. So I suspect most were not to happy with it. So I suspect it was not such "pay2win" as most wanted it to be.
