Currently the sheridan derp is the worst fun to have on a t10 lt, 76 pen used to be ok on the t49 but not anymore, you have a 0 percent chance of penning the other t10 lts except the rhm and the 105. Heat rouds are also completely useless because 152 pen cant pen anything. They definately need to do something to help this tank out dpm the other light tanks

Whenever I play the Sheridan and get hit by random crap, I get so angry that it causes me to commit suicide

they need to nerf camping in one way or another

they need to revert arty to the way it was because all it does is target light tanks now and now we have far too much camping

What they need to do is remove any and all derp guns from the game.

They are giving missles to it at some point from what I heard. If you ever heard of blitz, they already have the code for them.

Why does the Sheridan "need" to out-DPM every other light? Especially with a derp gun?

All arty does is target light tanks?

 

I know some KV-4, Churchill III, and KV-2 drivers that would disagree. :D

 

And don't forget those poor bastards piloting the HMS TOG II around the battlefield.:arta:

Factually untrue. The 152mm can pen nearly all tier X tanks.

 

You just can't do it frontally (usually). A concept that many tankers struggle with.

 Yes! "Omg my tank isn't op by penning anything from the front, it needs a buff!"

 

 Also 75% of our player base is trash also, so if I think about some of the whining comments is like you can apply a trash factor to the comment which actually gives you a percentage of truth to the trash players rant.

You aren't helping anyone but the red team in this kind of situation. 

 

In this case, don't use the derp. the 105 is getting a nice buff in the upcoming patch.

Light tank damage is baloney atm anyway, most players would rather play them as mediums instead of as scouts as the original intention of the class was.

I use the derp gun for fun on the Sheridan. If I hit something in the front then at least I do something. Its a derp gun, Its not supposed to pen majority of the tanks in the front. As a Light Tank player you should be flanking and fighting tanks in the rear. Derp gun works perfect.

The Sheridan is getting a buff, but from my experience playing it, they are buffing the wrong thing. Higher alpha for the 105 is nice in theory but its useless if you cant pen at long range. Hold your mouse over the APCR ammo icon in garage (thats the 'silver' round) and note the pen drops from 236 at 50m to 189 at 500m - which is a massive 20% dropoff - from weak to abysmal. Now compare with the tier 10 medium of your choice: the Patton, for example, goes from 268 at 50m to 258 at 500m - a whole 5% dropoff. This is what they need to fix. If the Sheridan could knock holes in stuff at longe range, using its vision, camo, and mobility, it would be a good tank. Currently, its not.

The t49 derp is adequate for the tier, Sheridan's derp does not need direct buffs like alpha, but I wouldn't mind a dispersion buff on turret rotation a little

This isnt grammar school and we are not writing a thesis, so let it go already. But let me ask you something,"What is like being so freaking perfect?". Must be real lonely and real boring.

I'll also give you incite into something,"definitely...... spell check is a thing"; is a fragmented sentence with no context.Take a good look at yourself. So, if you are gonna continually berate people about their grammar; which you always do. Then obtain a career where your perfection of the English language would be best suited. Otherwise, shut the hell up.

Even at tier 10, there are tanks with soft spots that can be penned by HE, try shooting these instead.

 

At higher tiers even derps need to be aimed.
