It’s not Aprils Fool! Yes, it is true, the M6A2E1 also know as ‘Mutant’ or ‘Alien’ will be back on sale for just one day on April, 1st. Six years ago since it was released as a special vehicle in the Heavy Pre-Order Package, the tank is coming out again… But is it worth it? The game has change so much that the vehicle is a bit out of the current meta, but it does have special matchmaking! Before you rage about why this tank is on sale, Wargaming kindly shared with us Community Contributors a Q&A with more details, plus we all got the tank to review and let you know if it’s worth. Don’t forget to check my review on it.
Q: In 2011 Victor Kislyi stated the tank will be available only in Heavy Pre-order Package.
A: The M6A2E1 has been a rare tank for 5 years and as such, the tank is almost never seen on the battlefield. So we want to give you all the opportunity to own this amazing tank if you missed it the first time as it has been a frequent request from the community. The tank will be available for a limited time and we hope to see it grace the battlefields more often. Make sure you don’t miss out this time because it could be your very last chance to get the Mutant.
Q: Are you going to sell other rare tanks such as Type 59?
A: There’s always the possibility that a tank such as the Type 59 or any other rarity will be made available at some point in the future. However, this is not a promise that it will.
Q: Why did you decide to offer this tank up for sale?
A: It’s an interesting tank which now has a HD model and, over time, has been buffed. It’s such a shame that it’s rarely seen in the heat of battle, this is why we wanted to give you the opportunity to own this amazing tank.
- There were less than 1000 active players with the tank.
Q: Will there be any compensation/bonus for players who bought the tank in pre-order package?
A: Yes, we have special content for players who already have the tank in their garage. (Most likely a set of missions for the tank, will update with confirmation later in the week.)
Q: Are you going to sell this tank in the future?
A: There’s always the possibility that a tank such as the M6A2E1 or any other rarity will be made available at some point in the future. However, this is not a promise that it will. The tank will be available for a limited time so make sure you don’t miss out as this might be your very last chance to get the Mutant.
