I the Sheridan, a tier 10 American in of (WoT), with a of a Mountain Pass battle.

The Sheridan the 4th of the 5 tier 10 light tanks that I’ve played, and IMO it’s the weakest. The Sheridan very unforgiving of mistakes.

I talk about how to win despite an extremely poor deployment and how to create your own bushes (soft cover) by knocking over trees. And I demonstrate the power of 1SA (1st Shot Advantage).

Strengths and Weaknesses
+ Superb gun depression (-10)
+ Superb view range (420)
+ Excellent alpha (390)
+ Relative to tier 10 lights, good DPM (2543 base)
– Huge profile
– Paper-thin armor, highly vulnerable to HE
– Relatively poor camouflage
– Low top speed (65)
– Despite size, very lightweight and therefore vulnerable to ramming
– As with all tier 10 lights, suffers from high penetration loss over distance

Recommended Equipment
1. Optics
2. VStab
3. Rammer

I talk through how I’m reading the battle as it unfolds and discuss key decisions and mistakes. My hope is that these videos meaningfully help players improve their gameplay.

  1. I always prefer the derp gun as it is very unique. You can execute enemy lights fairly often and some American tanks have really really well rear end

    • It’s certainly unique. Same goes for the T49.

      I find the 105mm gun on the Sheridan to be much more consistent than the derp. The 105mm gun has much better gun handling, better accuracy, and the 390 alpha is meaningful.

    • Taugrim yeah for the way you play the 105 is better. I’m very patient and sometimes remain passive until I get an opportunity

    • Yea the derp is great when you can ambush, especially when you have time to fully aim in.

      That said, I can’t carry with the derp as effectively as I can do with the 105mm.

  2. Because many of you don’t read the video description, here it is in a comment…

      Taugrim You should have way more subscribers and you should be streaming!!
      Thanks for the content

  3. Your videos are great. No bullshit. Clear analysis.

  4. T49 on tier 9 is a much better tank tier for tier than Sheridan on tier 10. Always have a lot of fun in T49, and almost none in Sheridan.
    For some reason, I think tier 9 tanks are much more fun than tier 10.

    • Agreed on both points. At-tier, the tier 9 lights are much better than the tier 10 lights.

      Also, tier 9 tanks arguably get the best tier matchmaking. You’re never more than 1 tier from the top, and you can face tanks 2 tiers below you.

    • he already explained that

    • Apart from the T100Lt (and maybe the AMX 13 105, if you like autoloaders) there is no Tier 10 light tank that is worth it. The Rhm Pzw is even worse than the T49. The T100 Lt is well worth it though, but that is the only one.

    Yeeeessss, finally! Ty so much. I was struggling with this tank and now i should be all good.

    • I think the Sheridan is underpowered. But hopefully the video will help you.

    • Angana Kalsare Palihapitiya Gamage

      Taugrim yes it did help me, should i sell this tank coz i barely play this since i hate it. I recently got the obj.268 and im loving it, got average dmg of 3k and already had 3 games where i did 6k dmg.

  7. I can hear the clanking of plates in the background 😂

  8. echogameadventures

    High tier lights are so… extreme. Some are amazing. some are the Sheridan.

  9. R. Giada Melchiorre

    Great vid Taugrim, I was debating whether too go for that tank, thanks for the advice!

  10. This made me reconsider grinding through my T49. Maybe I’ll just keep derping with it in the meantime, lol! And yeah, 50-100 is next! (I still haven’t cracked how to play that baguette)

  11. we wait you in path of exile!

  12. Love light tanks, I feel uncomfortable in slower tanks. 50 100 is my latest purchase so looking forward to it!

  13. Thanks for this review Taugrim. I don’t really agree with your feelings, in my opinion this is a very good scout in fact (you don’t talk about the very high view range in the video), as well the 0.4 dispersion for me in very convenient, I don’t shot at very long range, so I don’t feel that the dispersion is a weakness, it’s rare that I miss a shot with Sheridan. As you mentionned in the comments, it has a decent DPM and good alpha. The de depression is appreciable as well. For all of that, it must has some weakness like big profile and low camo (#30%). Definitively, I would recommend this Tier 10 light, I really enjoy it !

    Yeh Sheridan is bad light? Oh boy just wait for plaing Rhm, that is realy bad and boring tank to play

  15. The reason the sheridan’s profile is so large is because that retangular chassis has spaced armor all along the sides albeit still thin. I’ve actually managed to absorb shells from relatively large caliber guns that hit me at a sharp angle in mine.

  16. Love your vids, I can’t believe you don’t have more subscribers. You are right up there with Quickybaby as far as I’m concerned

    So how was that food? sounded tasty

  18. Ilmari Miettinen

    Such a shame that they decided to nerf the tier X lights before their release.

  19. You should show some of your mistake videos. Watching these is like a Taugrim greatest hits dvd. I’d like to see the stuff that didn’t make it.

  20. Ilmari Miettinen

    Rhm. Panzerwagen?

  21. Konstantinos Kalogeras

    Taugrim is actually the ONLY unicum I actually give respect to. He is the only one doing work without being a gold noob!

  22. Playing a number of games together, you tend to play a lot of light tanks. What about the t10 light tanks do you think needs to be addressed, if any to be more viable at t10.
