I’m kind of surprised that there hasn’t been an uproar about the Mutant being available for 7800 gold yet.  I wouldn’t buy it in the big extortion bundles, but I might today.

Hey I wouldn't complain. I might actually die from the front for a change if enough of these things showed up. Can't be that hard to gun down a goose, can it? :D

It could be possible that the people who are most likely to complain about it haven't seen it yet. Heck I didn't know it was on sale until I read this post.

 

Once again, WG puts the tank they said they will never sell again, back on sale again:facepalm:

I seriously doubt there are enough original owners left actively playing to matter anymore and of the ones left I would imagine don't care one way or another. They could all quit as a group and it wouldn't make any difference to the daily player count running through the queue so wg as do all companies is maximizing profits.

I bought it just now for gold and I've been around since just after Beta closed.

Once in a lifetime opportunities happen only twice a year, three times at most.  Four times if there is a special occasion.

As someone who is trying to complete SPG 15 for the T55A, I welcome the sight of many more Mutants on enemy teams!

They got to make money some how since the NA servers are slowing dying off. They might as well only have 1 NA server why have 2?

Is this thing any good these days?  What are it's strengths/weaknesses?

For 7800 gold it's actually a total steal.  It's rather powercrept against 9s, which it often faces in the "great" template age.  5 9s or all 8s, you don't get many situations where you can be a bully anymore because templates don't allow for fun.

Giggatroll hull against tier 6/7 and about half of the tier 8s.  tier 6 and 7 premium struggles against it, but tier 8+ premium butters it.  Sides are garbo, no scrapy-side in this one.  Turret cheeks are squishy to high pen stuff.

 

 

Against a good player, it's easily defeated, against Joe Random who has never seen a bobblehead, it's a neigh unstoppable murderbox

One Tsavo review later, and it's in my garage :)

 

Thanks

This game has been in existence for almost ten years now.(7 yrs to be exact), and in my four years playing, I did not see this tank nor  even known it even existed until WG put it on sale for the 1st time maybe last year(sorry did not remember date).

It is not like this tank is being driven regularly from day one. It just mostly sits in the garage collecting dust. Then everyone's pants are fire when WG decided to put it on sale. Yes, WG used this tank as a carrot to get people to spend money to support the game in the early stage, and had kept its promise for over six years. Time has changed, players base changes, and most importantly, WG is a business which needs to make money. 

 

 Putting this tank on sales is win- win move. I think by put it on sales, WG brings awareness to this tank, thus allows the early alpha, beta testers to glow that they were early owners of one of the rare tanks. This does not take anything away from these owners. Maybe WG can designate an emblem and give them to the original owners so they can proudly display it on their tanks to let everyone knows that their tanks were the original ones. And let WG continue milking its cash cow, to be able to keep the game free to play for those who can't afford spending money on the game.

Well, with all the extra gold I got from the Holiday Boxes, I think I can afford to pick this baby up.

I probably won't play it for a long time, but can't pass up the opportunity. I mean, this is only the 3rd or 4th time this "not to every be sold again" tank has been on sale in 2018. So, I need to get it while the getting's good.

It's suffering every day. they buffed it and the win rate is still dropping. An IS-3A with 270mm HEAT clips this thing. The Defender with 256 APCR kills it. Even a Patriot with gold rounds can kill this like butter. It's outspotted by everything on the map, moves like a slug, and can't hide anywhere. It can't side scrape (side armor is garbage). It can't snipe (.40 dispersion is troll). And it can't DPM (rounds per minuet are crap). It spends 1000 credits per standard round with 204 pen that bounces a lot and spends 4400 for an APCR shell that can still pen things. you will lose money in this thing. The new French cars will spot if from the spawn and will just drive up to you and kill you unless you are surrounded by friendlies. I would even bet that the new Sweedish medium tanks will pen this thing with gold as well. You are always bottom tier, like every other premium match failing tank. You get owned by scorpion G's and the new Russian Scorpion G wanna be. 

 

It's a tank that is from a meta so old that it might as well be hot garbage in today's game. They have sold it again now what, 4 times? But you still never see anyone play them. Why? Because they die in two seconds in today's game. You will bounce 5 shots. Then, everything loads gold and you die in 5 pens.

Here is an original owner. I did care but now I don't give a damn. 

 

WG has lost all honor and integrity over their reversals of promises. The latest broken promise is no wheeled vehicles. If you think arty is hassled now wait for the armored cars to arrive.

 

Here is one thing that gives me solace. The ONLY thing good about the Mutant fathead was it's exclusivity. As a tank it is a POS that has been power creeped to death. Enjoy your new purchase.

 

Ok...bring on the trolls!

Just out of curiosity, have you never made a decision and then, YEARS later, changed your mind?? Because to me that doesn't really seem like that big of a deal. If someone goes back on their word a week or even a month later that's pretty shady but sht happens, things change. You don't even know if the people/person who made that decision even works for WG anymore.

Could you please direct me to the quote where they "promised" no wheeled vehicles. Because, just to be honest, I don't believe it ever happened...
