Have you tried it yet? What do you think? RU server unicums are having 5k DPG already.

I don't know. Couldn't tell on Test server - all rushing the middle mindlessly and firing like there's no tomorrow - and in this one game I had half of the tanks were Badgers. Shooting calmly at each other looking for the weak spots. All extraordinary behavior.

 

It's gonna take some time, days, normal battles, to reach any valid conclusion. Too early to tell.

 

(and RU unicums can make 5k DPG in a Lee :-), nothing conclusive there)

Wait a bit. It might be op but early results mean nothing when your oponents don't know how to deal with you. Also current t10 meta is badger vs badger

A tank which is effectively invulnerable frontally even to premium ammo with ridiculously high DPM, how could that ever be OP?.....

 

*effectively* invulnerable since it's really easy to hide your lower plate and it has no other frontal weakspots.

Crap tank in reality so far probably because everyone wants to try his new toy without knowing its limits first. Today a full tier 10 battle with 24 badgers in both teams, i was in the foch B tried to farm the assistance as a viable and cheaper solution to this infestation :) ended up with 3k dmg and 7k assist (all badgers)!!!

Yes,  it is OP. Just await the results which will show it in a month or two.

And then we will say a loud "I TOLD YOU" to WG, even if they don't care...

Having best DPM in the game combined with fantastic accuracy and tied for having the best frontal armor with the T110E3 when hulldown while also being not THAT slow? Yeah nothing is wrong with this one.

 

Seriously, there is literally no reason for it to be so fast. It should be limited to 25 kph, IMO. It also needs a LFP armor nerf, and if that is not enough, either a RoF, alpha, or accuracy nerf.

You mean, going from one corridor to the next and hoping to not get face blasted by half the enemy team or another hidden TD?

Yeah, that usually works quite well...

Shoot HE just above the two miniturrets at the front. Their roof is only 68 mm, so the splash will do decent damage. It isn't ideal but it works.

Yeah, if you area TD or heavy that might work but mediums/lights HE is not up to that.

And even with HTs and TDs, if you don't have at least 150mm gun, your ammo capacity won't last enought to take one of them out...

Of course it's OP. Isn't every new tier 10 they introduce OP so that people grind towards it? Then they nerf it after 8 months and bring something else out for people to grind towards.

But there is good news for Deathstar owners. It has its ammo capacity upgraded to 20 shells. There might be some possibilities there. Worth a test, just to see if you can take a Badger out with HESH from the front

Yep, but that's a 183mm gun. I can't see a way tanks like IS-4 or 113 with 122mm, or IS-7 with the 130mm can do it.

Ironically, the now retired deathstar is the better counter to the badger.
