6.19 rounds per minute instead of 7.06 rounds per minute like on PC. Unnessesary nerf in my opinion, Badger doesn't have crazy penetration, huge alpha, great mobility or fantastic camo values, no, it was meant to have THE BEST DPM IN THE GAME but no, WG decided to nerf it's DPM with no reason. Was the Badger OP on PC? No, it wasn't. Would it be OP on console if it had same DPM than on PC? I don't think so but apparently someone at WG thinks so they decided to ruin the selling point of this vehicle. I feel sad and disappointed after waiting Badger for over a year and to see it having worse rate of fire than SuperConqueror (and same god-awful engine sounds!). What do you guys think about Badger in it's nerfed state? Please share your thoughts...

I think everyone was expecting a new OP tier X tank destroying monster on the same level as the waffle or Death Star.  Now that it isn’t they are all upset.

To much hype I guess.  

You guy really got to stop comparing everything here to PC for Christ’s sake.  It isn’t PC so let it go.

I agree except the part about PC, Yes we aren't PC but we copy PC's Assets and then the Stats are changed. I don't know this as a fact though before anyone does (it's just a guess, nothing more) so it's fairly easy to make the comparison. I don't mind the nerfs personally but it's only like comparing a Tiger II to a King Tiger for example.

I actually prefer them to release new tanks into the game in a slightly nerfed state. If they bring the new tanks across in a OP state lots of people will rush out to get one, in a lot of cases people will throw free XP at it too (meaning they spend money to get it) those people will then be pretty pissed if a month down the line their new toy gets nerfed because it's over performing.

 

The way WG have done this people won't be in too much of a rush that they put their hand in their pocket to get one and therefore won't be disappointed if it does get nerfed and if it does under perform, nobody will be mad if it gets a buff.

I never thought of the Badger as up there with the waffle or deathstar. I thought it was a very well balanced vehicle with it's positives and negatives however nothing game breaking. However the nerf just doesn't make any sense. It will end up just like the swedish tier X td. Forgotton.

Agreed. I'd buy the Progetto even in a nerfed state most likely unless i win it for free somehow. I'll get Deathstar and Badger once Tortoise gets some love :)

So just checked badger on pc least played tier X tank destroyer :sceptic:

Personally was waiting for this tank very much, now i am a little sad, was hoping to get that PC DPM and worst gun handling if that tank really needed to be nerfed :sceptic: Done some math on PC with good equipment and crew you can get ~4280 DPM and console version only ~3600 :sceptic:

that’s not true. 

There British line has some real gems in both TT and premium versions. 

 

Everyone is poo pooing this nerf but I’ll reserve judgment till I see it in action.

I don't mind not having a glaring weak spot while having one less round to fire per minute. Hide lower plate, hope there is no arty, expect HE spam because nobody can pen you frontally if you angle right.

'Tis true...

 

WGC's anti-British bias is legendary, the only people who nerf British tanks worse were the original designers

Completely agree, even in the pre-nerf state it would still get minced hard by faster lights and mediums that could flank it. And let’s not even talk about what sky cancer would do to it on open maps with no artillery cover. British TDs are meant to be centered around having high DPM and low mobility, I’m not sure why they felt it needed a nerf considering it has all the strengths and weaknesses of the Tortoise aside from that stupid machine gun port weak spot. It’s funny they are so quick to “rebalance” anything that is slightly good yet the only time anything Russian gets nerfed is when it’s so blatantly overpowered it becomes a meme (*cough* Object 268 V4). Maybe I’ll just use my Tortoise XP to buy the 183 instead since they aren’t removing it.

Oh ffs you people, these things are wrecking. Just another corridor td where all you have to do is hide your lower plate and win. You mean it cant out traverse mediums and lights?! The horror. No worries though, if you don't like the badger then you can play a tank with 275 hesh pen and 1750 alpha.

 

My sympathy goes towards people looking forward to the polish and french heavies.

Well it's a good thing I've played so many damn tanks that they are all boring now. Everthing is the same and nothing is exciting. I get a new tank and I drive it a couple times. Thanks to lootboxes I free exp everything I want I havnt had to grind a tank in yeeeaaarrs.



Good thing that's the case otherwise Id be pissed about this badger thing.

But I'm not

Cause this game is so bleh.

I do not mind that it comes into a nerfed state, it seems to be still a very good and fun tank.

What I do not understand is why they nerf all the new tanks BUT WE STILL HAVE THE WAFFLE & DEATHSTAR IN FULL OP STATE

 

WHAT THE [edited]WG

 I can not understand people who are trying to tell me that the badger is now balanced.

On PC all TD´s were nerfed no 275 hesh pen with the deathstar no waffle E100, no 850 alpha TD,

and there the badger with it´s normal stats is underperforming.

So why for god's sake should the badger recive a nerf on console with all of those other untouched TD's?

its called WG-console logic.

 

they are to busy making money that they do not realize its about creating a competitive game which generates longevity

not spending a single dime on WG anymore, free gaming now :)
