Yes it is mainly due to everyone trying out other pref tanks but the Mutant is basically a Defender with pref matchmaking currently. Most players don't know where to pen you and even if they do they can have trouble doing it. You can shred through a flank solo quite often while watching all the other 8s panic after they start to bounce. On top of this it gets to see tier 6s often which besides a handful of tanks are completely helpless against you if facing them frontally. It also carries an insane amount of ammunition so you can just hold a flank constantly peppering 320 into tanks every 9.5 to 10 seconds while never worrying about running out of shells. I ended up 3 marking it in my session using it tonight after realizing how good it is earlier and was probably one of the easiest tier 8s to do currently. If you are going to 3 mark the tank do it now before the expected values rise up to where they should actually be with how good the tank performs. Probably have another week or so before it gets some insane expected values cause of the performance of it.

All these reports of the buffed premiums roflstomping everything is hilarious. All I can do is shake my head when I think about the Pershing and T32 which have already been powercreeped into near-irrelevance, now even more so.

 

Thanks, Wargaming.

I took mine out 2 days before the patch and it seemed to confuse opponents.  Must try again tonight with better stats...

No wonder it's the favored tank of one of the most vocal SBMM proponents.

Yeah people don't know to shoot it right at the open spot where the top of the tracks and upper hull meet. Massive overmatch spot. However they did clean up the turret so its much harder to nail the small weakspot at the top. Overall its much stouter frontally even vs 9's and its a complete steamroller when top tier.

Put a few dozen battles in my mutant over the weekend.  Hugely improved.  Blocked 5K+ several times.

All are vastly better simply because they're playable now.

Thanks, Wargaming. 

 

Don't forget that they won't nerf premiums, so this is just how things are going to be now.

 

They should full-on nerf premiums for the overall health of the game. And remove any class that horribly breaks game mechanics despite how many one-armed neckbeards will sob about it into their Dakimakura.

 

Sincerely, someone who owns a Type 59, IS-6, KV-5, Chrysler K, SuperPershing, etc.
