I've been playing it a lot (got it back when the Lucky Crates were around, hope those come back) and it hasn't changed much, though I feel like the fire rate is more sluggish (16.8 seconds if I do recall, I use CS) and the armor isn't great, it's best feature is the gun, the Gun 15cm Smasher V2. its actually quite similar to the 152mm on the SU-152. honestly, unless played perfectly, the Lupus and Panther can easily kill a Smasher, no sweat.

It's not the lack of downsides that make the thing OP. It's the ridiculous ease that a bad player can carry a game with it while hitting stupid snapshots. It is easily #1 on blitzstars for WR and has a bigger lead on DPB than the gap between any other tank at its tier.

 

And hoo boy, are tier 7 tech tree tanks ever getting mauled by their premium counterparts. Woof.

It will be OP until this game dies, which it likely won’t for a long time.

I accidentally bought a single smasher crate when my finger slipped, best decision I’ve ever made in this game. As long as the player base continues to decline, the smasher will stay broke.

It's op because of how bad the playerbase is.

Must. Have. 60%. Winrate. Under. 0.5%. Platoon. Rate!!! (30 day)

I just got the Smasher 2 days ago.

 

When you are not bottom tier, you can almost remove 1 red tank every 17 seconds. 

 

It's amazing how this tank can influence battles.  It's like no other tank I have played.

It's a KV-2 with less armor, more speed, less reload, 1 tier higher, and better looks.

Actually it has better armor, better dispersion, better aim time and better penetration on its HE and HEAT.

You left out the part about it being far uglier.

It's got rockets and spikes!  It may not have the fist of Stalin painted on the side, but it sure does have the hand of Stalin guiding it's shells!

The issue is that it can do 545+ damage every single shot with practically guaranteed results. 

 

Low armor tank - HE for 1k please.

 

Med armor tank - AP for 640

 

Tier 8 Heavy - HEAT for 545

 

There is basically no tank that it sees that it can't fully pen with the right ammo. The fact that it can pen a Tiger 2 frontally as a lower tier heavy should tell you everything you need to know.

There are a lot of player working overtime right now trying to show us that even an OP tank like the Smasher can be garbage in the right hands.

any tank can be garbage in the right hands. But not every tank can be OP in most of the playerbases hands.

Yes, it is still absolutely op and even more so than literally every other tank considered op, it is by all aspects an improved KV-2, it has better armor, better reload time, better dispersion, better power to weight ratio and wayyyyyyyyyyyyy better penetration with 275mm with HEAT ammo. About as much as the AP pen of an IS-4 with calibrated, but remember, the IS-4 is in tier 10 and Smasher is in tier 7. If you like the derp power of the KV-2, you will LOVE the Smasher as it is all round better.
