As an arty player I love the Badger....so do most Med players. Stay close to your hole!

For a new tank it is not doing that hot. Usually starts high and drops significantly over time. Situational armor, slow, is no way to go through life. It is still a casemate TD in a game of super fast mediums.

I'm actually pretty happy with the tank, although I haven't played mine a ton yet. It's always going to be a niche tank due to being a TD, I think it's right in the sweet spot where WG should aim when balancing tanks, i.e., it's not OP across the board but is situationally weak and situationally extremely powerful. It doesn't obsolete the T110E3 (lower survivability on Himmelsdorf) or the S-tank (poor camo and speed) but is kind of a hybrid of the two. I've even gotten to play it in CW a few times!

Hate to admit it but the age of casemate tds are largely over. Considering the map redesigns and influx of med meta. WG still hasn't found a way to balance out class usefulness in the mainstream.

not impressed by it so far. As an enemy and as user. Prefer death star.

Annoys me that they had to give it a 12*3*mm gun. Just to make sure it's never going to bounce my STRV. Would have been nice to have something I could face down directly.

Not really a problem to kill, I can slam in gold and tear it up as long as I have some camo to work with, but on, say, Mountain Pass, if that thing gets into the valley with the lower plate covered by a lump in the ground or a wreck? Just forget using that entire lane unless you're lucky enough to have an Arty that's on point, and in a good spot.
