They didn't even add a "discuss" link to the forum below it!

What the F what were they thinking?

Never to be sold™!

Too bad they have forced to take down the video on youtube where Viktor Kiesley is lying that “you will never ever get this tank in the future”

 

also bold move to not make an forum announcement about it :hiding:...

Don't have the Mutant but each time it comes on sale I think about it, Probably 5 years ago it was a great tank now its just an interesting tank.

Should it be sold again not my problem but given we never see this tank in games except for a few days after it goes on sale "yet again" either the owners don't play the game any more or just that tank.

Its a little iffy to sell things they promise were exclusive I agree but I think a compromise could be reached.

You make the original collecter's items different enough and its fair to sell it again without the thing that sets it apart.

Shouldn't be difficult to credit those original Mutants with a special camo or something even more special full set of bonded equipment maybe .

It doesn't have to do with OPness (buy a defender the second you see it!)

It's about not selling staff that were supposed to be exclusive for some people.

Imagine busting your [edited]to do a certain set of missions to get an exclusive tank and after a year or two they sell it on the store, wouldn't you be disappointed at least?

This discussion happened the first time they sold it, a couple years ago.

 

WG did not care and you had community managers claiming the tank was rare and others should be given the opportunity to have it. They also ignored that famous video, and made little to no effort to compensate original owners. 

 

The only thing to learn from this is not to believe in any promise made by WG not to change some time in the future for whatever reason. My money is on bonds for sale.

They don't respect their playerbase! It's by the way is declining, in numbers and quality.

What's the big deal.

 

Mutant has meh pen, shocking DPM and I bet it's armour isn't up to much these days either....

 

Principle of losing in an exclusive tank I guess

Actually 204 AP/245 APCR penetration is pretty good for a preferential matchmaking tank that will never have to fight against stuff like Maus or Type 5.

 

The armor is also exceptional against lower tiers and it's still good against same tier tanks. Even against its own 245 APCR shell you are effectively flipping a coin whether you penetrate or not. The cupola is weak but the Mutant is a very tall tank so hitting it is going to be between hard and impossible in most common situations. The armor obviously gets worse if you angle and give the enemy shots at your shoulder which can be a problem when you are making a peek from behind a corner. The side armor is also utter trash and it is easy to overangle with the tank but saying it's poorly armored is just not true.

 

It's probably not an exceptional tank but I'd be surprised if it wasn't a good performer for most players.

Guess it's power weight ratio is nice and it has decent gun depression too.

 

Although for me simply on a money point of view I already have a Chrysler and a Patriot so I'm not sure what place the Mutant has in my garage.

Even Preferential MM is somewhat overrated these days as MM often defaults to single tier or +/-1 so the T10 beatdowns of T8 tanks is a lot less than it was.
