  1. Oh wargaming…. I know you need to make money, but you constantly go back on your word and it just pisses people off. Maybe this is an April fools joke that it’s going to be sold. I don’t want one at 89.99 US its going to be about $100 Canadian, and it’s not that good. However, if I’m not mistaken, you told people back in testing, that when they bought the tank it would NEVER BE SOLD AGAIN…

    How is something or anything you say regarding collectors items supposed to have any collectors value if you just release the “valued item” whenever to make some extra cash. Comic companies don’t print 100 special issues numbered that are sought after then keep 500 in reserve to sell in 5 years when they want more cash.

    Like I said, maybe I’m just ranting pointlessly but man would I be pissed about this video if I had bought the mutant back in testing.

    1. It’s already confirmed that it is NOT a joke. Don’t believe me then click the video to it’s main source and look at the pinned comment by world of tanks and look at the 1st reply.

  2. Second time that they’ve gone back on their word on this tank. A few years ago they put all the pre-order tanks up, and there was such a backlash that they took them right back down.

    Oh, and the reason that you don’t see them on the battlefield is twofold. 1) They’re not that good. Frontal armor is good but that’ll only save you for long enough for someone to hit the ‘2’ key. 2) Anyone that has these is deep into the non-existent end game of WOT, and thus doesn’t play much anymore. (Yes, I have one)

    1. Get over it. I really hope WG will sell them all and don’t give a shit after 6 to 7 years where only 30 players with that tank play frequently. And when you are upset go and quit with the game. Thank you.

      1. Uhm, that is not how it works. It was promised these tanks would stay exclusive so WG is obliged to follow what they promised.

        1. Dont worry they said you will get compensated something, been waiting for this thing to go on sale now for 5 years, they have promised a lot of things and then broke that promise, this however is good for everyone.

        2. You do have a point, it is wrong to go back on a promise. However, many players would like to add 1 or 2 of these “Superrare” premiums to their collection and I understand that and Wg apparantly agrees. Not every player who started from beta is still playing the game to this day, some care and some dont care that these vehicles will make a re-entry. WG can still decide what to do with it even though you have a vehicle in the garage. They should not have made this bold statement at the time but over a number of years things can change. Anyway, vehicles like the mutant will just be bundled massively with gold and such just like the E25 to push up the price to retain a part of their rarity. In 28k battles over a number of years I have seen the mutant only once just like a few others of these “exclusive” reward tanks. I don’t really see the problem brining some vehicles back for 24 hours but others like you may disagree, only because of a promise or for gloating because you have a rare vehicle?

            1. Suffering, what is there to suffer? It’s a game, not a disease. I understand the possible frustration when a company goes back on it’s word but what can you do? It’s not an antique or something that lasts forever and is worth lots of money, it’s a pixel, a rare one. When the game packs up all the money spent on prem time, gold and tanks is also gone. When that happens are we gonna protest against it and demand to put the plug back in?

        3. They are not obliged. It’s an interview only and not a contract. I think people should really get over it and not post this interview over and over again. And I’m not interessted in the Mutant, but I’m happpy when others might have a chance to add it to their garage for a high price.

          1. Incorrect. In the USA, when you make an offer to sell something with stated conditions and take money from customers for said item, that’s a legally binding contract. WG can roll the dice on Beta testers not caring about the Mutant being sold 6 years later, but that won’t change the legal facts and won’t excuse their actions about going back on their word to early players. Personally, if they do this, I think it’s both dumb customer relations AND risking a breach of contract suit.

      1. The armour scheme is more like Liberte, honestly. The hulls are very similar, including the paper (but not overmatchable) sides.

  4. Finally the one tank I have been waiting for since I started, my hydro was put for sale so what let people pay a lot of money, I think most tanks should be allowed for sale, just give you guys special camo, extra XP or credits.

  5. Mutant and Type59 simply won’t work now. There is gold-for-credits and a bunch regular or premium tanks that are waaaay more powerful, just to mention Defenders/Libertes/Patriots line.
    5 years ago an average tier 7 could only watch while Type59 was raping him. Now it loads APCR/HEAT and the advantage is gone.
    Mutant will be a nice collectors tank though, but I would’t buy it for credit printing purpose, because it will be a disapointment.

  7. The only tank I really want is the PZ 5/4. So, with the mutant making a comeback one can only hope they follow suit and offer other premium tanks that weren’t available for the newer players.

  8. Sell this and I want ALL my money back from every premium tank, close down my account and never play again.

    I had just about enough of WG bullshit and lies. Remove premium mm tanks… No just a lie. Never sell this again… LIES. Try throwing a type 59 as a compensation and I was I’ll tell you to fuck off and die. NO!! Just fucking No!!!!

    1. You dont get any money back as you paid a user fee and played the game for 6 years. Btw. an interview is anything but not a contract. In the shop offers it was only sold as an exclusive package, but with no words it was called a “onetime-offer” in the shop. But you are free to quit the game.

  9. sentences like “Total exclusive” and “you never ever get this tank in the future” were used in that video so its a promise for players who bought it. And i bought it because i wanted to help game grow and get some unique to myself..

    They better keep their promises πŸ™‚
