I started to do a poll but I'm just curious who has the T-22 Medium and just won't play it because of the stigma, and who has it and plays it.

 

If you look at the stats stats of the T-22 it seems people are playing it but I NEVER see it.

 

 

Either way, nerfing the 430U made me think about this tank and whether that motivate the minority of people who have it to play it.

I rarely see it. Usually the person playing it s someone in the light green/dark green range that mainly plays the T-22. Other times I see people in the clan ready it up for clan wars but don't actually bring it nor play it often since it's just so laughably bad. 

The thing that made the T-22 fun was that it was unique, it was a side-scraping beast and the gun was reliable, after the nerfs there is no reason to play it since it's one of the worst performing tier 10s in the game. I'd rather have a tank nerfed to the ground because nearly everyone cheated to get it, than leave it borderline OP and have the cheaters be rewarded. 

Anyone who owns one is labeled as a cheater, I'd only name less than 3 people who earned it legitimately and they did it early on before the MM consisted only of cheating groups. Several clans did it extensively and some of which are still around today, but the majority of wot don't care about people cheating to get some lousy reward tank. It could have been a big deal if the tank was still good, but WG wouldn't allow that. 

On the RU they named players and publicly shamed them for cheating along with removing tanks from the cheaters accounts, EU had something somewhat similar in the sense that those caught would just have their rewards revoked. NA on the other hand only banned players for 7 days but let them keep the tanks and even allowed them to complete the event if they hand't gotten the tank already. WG basically acknowledged that they don't care if people cheat, at least for the NA. So at that point anyone who really wanted the T-22 got it, at the risk of being labeled as a cheater. 

People still play the thing if they don't care being called a cheater, or since the majority of time people just don't care that they're in the T-22 since its a bad tank. I've always suggested a different T-22 be released (they could just call it the T-22(K) or something, and release it as an additional clan wars tank or reward vehicle. Just give it the gun of the 277 and call it good, no like they have any problem doing that for premium tanks *cough* 152K *cough* any T-34 or Sherman variant.  

TL/DR - Its a bad tank for bad players

But look at the screenshot of the stats.

 

I'm not sure what "average battles" exactly indicates but it definitely not only alludes to the fact that it is being played, but it also indicates that it is performing fairly well.

 

Do you thing that is just residual from before it was nerfed or what?

In other words residual. That is my thinking as well.

 

Its just that the stats sites are clear on what they mean by certain stats which makes it hard to know for sure.

I've seen them a few times over the past couple months. Each time it was driven by 49 to 52% win rate players and each time it lost. Twice on my own team and once on the enemy team. Basically no one is really going to play it nowadays due to the tank not being all that great. If you just want a tank to play in random battles the 907 and 430U are both infinitely better since the nerfs. 

 

It is funny though just how many people cheated the tank on NA. There are 2400 different accounts with registered T22 battles on NA compared to just 2000 on EU. EU has 5x the player population and ended up with hundreds less T22s :D

 

I am surprised the T22 hasn't ended up in the bond shop after all this time. Would be a perfect candidate to be included in it in my opinion. WG knows the event was a failure on the EU/NA servers so might as well get rid of the stigma a little bit and just put it up for sale for 20k or so bonds. Would be an awful investment but at least people could get it legit finally.

The potential pool of tanks available for the bond shop is quite small.

 

I was thinking the 22 was a likely candidate.

Don't worry. One day WG will put it in the premium shop in it's unnerfed form for $100 and sell enough of them to keep the game going for another couple of years.

I know you are exaggerating for effect but I'm don't think Wargaming has ever put a Tier X in the premium shop have they?

I think I have only seen the thing twice, and don't remember them doing well.

OK, maybe not Premium Shop. Black Market or loot boxes, then.
