I've been playing this game for 7 years and had never heard of the Raider badge, so had to look it up when I got my first one just now.

 

Does anyone have a pile of them or is it really incredibly rare?  I would have thought it was verging on the impossible: "Remain undetected throughout the entire battle and be the only one to capture the base"

 

The joke is that I actually got 100% of the cap in a slowish paper TD, so picked up Invader as well.  3 or 4 enemy were circling the base but the SU-130 is Captain Invisible and they didn't spot me.  

 

Victory!

I can stay hidden for a while but not the entire battle. Post a replay please as the games on this map are always interesting and i like that TD. :)

Congratulations! It is a rare one as it really needs some cooperation from both teams (willing/unwilling) to get. Pretty rare due to this

Never got raider myself, but did watch a T95 get one in Stalingrad long ago.

Well played mate! :D

I've never managed to stay undetected all the battle! Actually, sometimes I go in the open if nobody spots me. (Lol):hiding::izmena::bush:

I have two, one in Grille and one in G.W Panther SPGs, both earned ages ago. One of them was on Mountain Pass but can't remember which.

 

I guess viewrange saturation in the playerbase, combined with a higher number of speedy tanks in the game, possibly even speed buffs of very slow tanks, might all contribute to the apparent scarcity of this reward.

 

But, for all I know they might be common.

Thanks, guys.

 

Bearing in mind my footling abilities in this game, it reminded me of the story of Mallory's Pipe, familiar to all climbers

 

"My friend George Mallory, for instance, who later disappeared close to the summit of Mount Everest, once did an inexplicable climb on Snowdon. He had left his pipe on a ledge, half-way down one of the Lliwedd precipices, and scrambled back by a short cut to retrieve it, then up again by the same route. No one saw what route he took, but when they came to examine it the next day for official record, they found an overhang nearly all the way. By a rule of the Climber's Club climbs are never named in honour of their inventors, but only describe natural features. An exception was made here."

 

"The climb was recorded as follows: Mallory's Pipe, a variation on Route 2; see adjoining map. This climb is totally impossible. It has been performed once, in failing light, by Mr G.H.L. Mallory."

Pretty sneaky with a solid poker face. Two nice snap shots on the M41D and the Super Pershing. :great:

Seen 3 get it in all my games. 2 of them TD's. One of them a tier X French Arty that raced around the map before he did cap. Never got it myself, so congrats.

I got my first one only a few months back. Starting south on Pilsen in the UDES03 I had no opposition on the coal field side so I motored north and ended up in cap.

 

I positioned myself behind the Hetzer hulls and prepared to defend myself. Nobody came. Full cap and Raider medal.
