Preferential matchmaking? Much better frontal hull armor?

 

The T26E5 is a better tank, but it also has to face tier 10 tanks.

 

Pretty much true. The Mutant has insane hull armor, a good gun...and Pref.MM. I just want to get the Mutant mostly to collect it....maybe use it in CW and Detaches, and then the occasional pub battle.

Wow... I totally forgot that it had Pref MM...

I'll pick it up, of course, but what the US line needs is a Tier VIII TD for crew training.

 

They promised they wouldn't sell the Mutant 6 heavy.  If they sell it as a TD they won't be breaking their promise.

It's been long enough since the Mutant was last seen that many of the Beta Testers who had access to buy it are long gone....and the few that are left probably don't care if the Mutant is re-sold. I think that is what Wargaming is hoping for.....many people have wanted the Mutant to be sold just ONCE. This April Fool's day just might be that one chance to pick up the Mutant 6....one final time.

 

Yes exactly, for idiots like me that would drop the coin in a heartbeat for something I should have picked up as an early supporter and failed to do so. Given the opportunity, I'd have every vehicle in the game. I haven't had a chance to earn any of the clan wars reward tanks but I have most everything but the elusive J and the Kanonenjagdpanzer. I still have to finish the standard tank lines and will eventually go back and fill in all the tiers 2-4 tanks that I skipped over.

I think it's the Chrysler K, and not the M6A2E1. The photos are fuzzy, but I think it makes more sense as the Chrysler K.

It's early for April Fool's, don't you think?   It does look like a Mutant 6.  I sure hope you won't be selling that or giving it away for missions ETC.  As that is one of the rarest tanks in the game.  A reward for BETA or ALPHA testers, I can't recall

​It looks like the M6A2E1 or "mutant"

April fools folks.  Unless this is on EU and RU also, it will be a free Mutant for anyone who logs in and actually "finds" it in the game.  Pubs will be like "ima gonna find it" and drive off cliffs.

I thought about the the Chrysler K but for got to look it up til you mentioned it. The muzzle brake looks right

 

EDIT: I just had a thought. What if this is a special vehicle that appears in matches April 1st weekend works kinda like the WG guys you kill and get rewards. If you see it and shoot and kill it you get some kind of reward.

 

IMHO I would not expect them to give away a free tank just for April 1st or put a tank on sale just for April 1st. But some kind of special event would be right up WG's alley.

Well it seems obvious which tank it is... which one has not been seen in about a decade?

LOL, I knew some smart Alek would say that :facepalm:

 

OK, here we go again... except for the Hype 59 (which is unlikely to be sold to put it mildly), which other tank has not been seen in almost a decade?

Mutant 6, I am with the crowd on this.... Folks I have a hunch that this tank will be in a 100$ bundle.... I have already bought the 252U..... So I won't be making a purchase for a few months.

As an origionalist who spent $90 on a tank 'that would never be offered again', it better not be the mutant.  Or the can refund my $90.  I believe a company should stand by it's word.  If it say it's 'never' going to offer a tank again, it should never offer that tank again.  That includes any 'special' edition of said tank.  I.e. no 'black' mutant.  That would still be offering the tank.  Don't do it WG, just don't do it.

Watching quickybaby on twitch and he is playing on the RU server in a M6A2E1 and it looks a lot like it.

Breaking news!

We sent Meathead back out into the wild and he got us some more pictures! Well...he set up a trail camera that managed to get some new, clearer pictures. Hopefully these can be used to shed some light on the nature of this unidentified object!
