Did you unlock it yet? What is it like? Worth the grind with the T49 at tier 9?

i dont think that many peeps rush the T10 scouts , they dont give more than the T9 and the xp price is very high

I got one yesterday, and after a rough start i had a 8.3k dmg game this morning.

Per tier i think T49 is better atm, pure T10 battles in corridor maps are problematic

to say the least, but it has potential.

 

Here's the game: http://wotreplays.com/site/3540441#murovanka-m00h-xm551_sheridan

...nice! :great:

 

Well, just over 150K XP left to "grind" on a standard account. I enjoy it though, so I shall not complain.

The tier X lights atm do not seem to be worth it. They gain almost nothing over the tier IX, and almost nothing is not enough to make me want to face tier x tanks every round. Other classes get around 15% to 20% gains from tier IX to X. Lights barely get 5% which is not enough to even remotely keep up with the gains the other classes get. Add in that the tier IX already feel more like tier 8,5 tanks, and you have tier X that are badly in need of a few buffs.

Its not bad, but its not a T10 tank. Meds can do everything almost better. T49 is great but this one...go for it if u want a challenge. I like the look of it and my baboon logo. : / After i aced it, it will gather dust in the last garage corner.

A Rof buff would be nice.

Only had 45'ish battles in it.

 

The upgrade over the 49 isn't that significant. As mentioned by others, you do end up in a lot of Tier X games, whereas the 49 has almost the same capabilities, but facing opponents a tier lower. 

 

However, I've been playing it with a scout setup, and the view range is spectacular; Currently im at 519m view range, which means some tanks are almost autospotted as soon as they hit the 445m mark - unfortunately, the view range benefit is a limited bonus, as most maps won't let you take advantage of it. 

 

On top of that, the M48 can do all that and more, as it has higher dpm, better accuracy, better armor and more hp's, all for the price of a lower camo-rating and lower top speed. When setup for DPM the Sheridan falls even further behind.

 

The Sheridan needs something more, or the meta has to change; Otherwise it's just an underperforming med. The 152mm howitzer is an added troll-bonus, but thats about it, a troll-bonus.

I got it, have 319 battles in it so far. It's a tricky tank this one. It goes like stink, it pulls so hard i was sort of forced to swap vents for GLD, the tank was getting uncontrolable. It does everything a T49 does, only better. The difference is not big, but all those little improvements make a big change on it's gameplay. It's very tricky (for me at least) to use it to it's full potential every game, this is a T10 tank after all, you're supposed to pull your weight (and some), and being consistent in a light tank as far as positioning and game flow is not easy for me.

But when it all comes together in a good game nothing comes close to it! It feels like a true bully now. A bully that occasionaly runs away only to come back with another blap in your face after 18s.

So this is my first tier X and I've had 10 battles in it with 1.7k average damage + 1.3k average spotting so doing rather crap in it but am aiming for 2k average damage.

Using the 105,and the gun is so bloody temperamental. Spends an entire battle missing the stupidest, easiest shots when fully aimed but then hits and pens on the move...I feel like it needs the accuracy buffing to something like 0.35 as opposed to the current 0.38. Its a real shame as it has such amazing soft stats :/

Current equipment: Vstabs / Optics / Rammer and kinda potato crew:

Not sure if its worth playing the Locust for a bit with crew exp reserves on just to get that BIA going (the Loader is from a T95E2 crew thats probably never gonna be complete)

Not sure if its worth dropping rammer for vents to compensate for lack of BIA/ Recon / Situational awareness and maybe to easy the gun derpiness a bit :/

Any suggestions?

When you start to get VR skills drop optics onstead

what buff? :) it has best of lights in tier X gun handling (not the derp gun). View range is amazing, the problem is camo bad, I think every tier X medium has better.

?? tier 10 meds should outclass tier 10 lights otherwise what's the point of meds? and to answer the OP I quite like the Sheridan, good tank with a highish skill ceiling.

T49 was great. So is this one. It's basically a T49 but better in every single way. It has a high skill cap to consistently do well in it. Doesn't do things as good as mediums, but it still has the speed advantage and aimtime over most if not all mediums. Comparing it to M48 is like comparing Maus to the 113. The Sheridan is significantly more mobile.

Its...ok. But my stats suggest i did better on the t49. Not an upgrade tier for tier, worst of my current 3 t10 lights.
