TAAANNK! Mutation announced.

In their Saturday update for The Sacrifice, Valve has announced that 5 new mutations are coming, including TAAAANNK!, a versus mode where every player on the infected spawns as a Tank, and only a Tank. I personally can't wait.

Unless the Tank's health/power is decreased, it will be extremely difficult for survivors to win..

Why are people suddenly concerned about the survivors winning now? Before, everyone wanted some new infected that could kill faster or something and now people are worried about 4 simultaneous Tanks.

At either rate, it's gonna be a barrel of laughs with 4 Tanks going off at once.
What if life was like Metroid Prime?

They'll probably cut zombies limit to a shorter number, those are the actual threats when tanks are around.

Personally, I think it'll be even easier to win as survivors now. I was easy to juke a tank before, it'll be just as easy to juke 4 and run to the safe room
I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome I am.

I'm pretty sure Valve thought ahead. >_> They'll probably make the tanks hit for less damage, less health, and be fast enough to catch up to a green-health Survivor.

What about this?:

There are five players in the lobby. One person is the Tank, the others are the Survivors. The person controlling the Tank will respawn as another Tank upon death (and keeps going that way until the end of the round). When all four Survivors are killed, the round ends, and the Tank control rotates to another player. The winner of the game is determined by how quickly the Survivors are killed for each round.

4 Tanks could easily surround the survivors and destroy them. That wouldn't be much fun.
But I'm sure there is a catch somewhere.

If it's 4 normal Tanks then the survivors will win almost every round. Seriously once you juke past 4 tanks no one is going to catch the survivors. I am with Mike on this I hope Valve thought ahead otherwise there is going to be a ton of rage quitting.

A better idea would be to have it that after 10% into the map a Tank spawns and after that Tank dies a new Tank spawns. This repeats until the end of the map. That would be legitimately hard for the survivors.
