World of Tanks: Fifth Wave of Bans

Hello everyone,

If you use illegal mods don’t think you are safe, the fifth wave of bans has arrived and will continue. This time there were less users receiving warnings or bans, meaning there are less players trying to gain an advantage over their enemies using illegal mods.

  1. Why don’t War Gaming hit those top clans? I am sure they’d mop up!! Oh it must be the revenue they bring in!!

    1. Maybe because they don’t use cheats… Don’t know, I know a lot of these Top Clans and never seen a player using mods that aren’t legal. Funny but I saw more “low skilled” players trying to be good with cheats than a player who already is good. but that’s my “experience”

      1. I think you are wrong, must hight stat players have paid for the cheats, they have a pact and they dont tell everyone until they are shoore is safe, but there is always i friend of a friend that leaks and they offer for 40€ lifetime hight quality cheats
        no one told me i saw tested and could buy if i wanted.

      2. i would agree but those top clans who were rigging for the T 22, i dont trust them, they dont use beyond legal mods…

    2. Many top tier players dont like to use mods because it takes focus away from the battle, it is very easy to be good, just play to the game instead of trying to get the game to play to you and you will succeed!

  2. Good job at cracking down on the illegal mods. HOWEVER, that does not curb the problems in other areas of the game nor fix the problems that are currently exist… I.E. – Match Maker, server problems, bias game play towards top clans and players. Also the reporting processing and the difficulties submitting tickets or hearing back on submitted tickets. How about fixing those problems as well! If you would like I can get in more detail… but like many problem tickets, this won’t be read.

      1. MM: Mediums and Heavies in the same MM group causes unbalanced matchups like Maus vs Leopard1 and unequal number of heavies in a matchup ( think ‘corridor maps’)
        Since recently: too many lights, Tier 8 MM screwed (“always” bottom).

      2. TD should be limited on assault mode. Five or more per team breaks it…

    1. Even Maus vs Leo1 is possible. The game isnt lost cause of 2 different tanks. Just look on the old MM. Im happy that we got the new MM. Server-Problems ?! Never saw any server problems on EU so far for 4 years.

  3. I used so-called “cheats” since they exist… and I will continue using them…
    do you really believe that those numbers are correct?
    I call BS in that…

    1. Good to know you ruin the game 🙂 Don’t worry, because I do know these numbers are real, and there will be a time soon where it will be impossible to use cheats.

      1. “there will be a time soon where it will be impossible to use cheats”
        do you really believe that? bigger and better-organized companies as WG tried that and failed real hard on that…
        ruining the game aka using tundra and direction markers…

        “I know a lot of these Top Clans and never seen a player using mods that aren’t legal. Funny but I saw more “low skilled” players trying to be good with cheats than a player who already is good.”
        having 2000+ wn8 I can say that is just bullshit. Literally, everyone in my community is wn2000+ and uses them bc it actually makes the game less painful to play. Having not to look out to find your next target makes it easier to do something else while playing, having not to look at those ugly bushes makes it easier to farm dmg… that’s at least my opinion.

        1. If it gives you pleasure using cheats, then go on. Its like when someone “takes your money” because it’s easier than working, then it’s fair play too. If you are still only on 2000+, I’m sorry but you are still not worth as a player, because if you can get 3000 or more with that…. lol I’ve seen these illegal mods working, I know people who used them and got banned, and I also know there are a couple of clans that everyone uses that shit… Sad, but true. But also I know a lot more than you think on how WG tracks these illegal mods and I do believe there will be a time these will be taken down.

    2. I play vanilla and have 2200 wn8, with recent 2600 wn8. That’s the best I can do without using cheats. I’m happy with it. If I knew everyone cheated, I still wouldn’t. If you can’t even keep it fair in a bloody game, you must be failure for life.

  4. Low number of detected cheaters is not a sign that a smaller number of players are using cheats but is a sign that wg method of detection is not so good especial when cheaters are using moore and moore “safer” methods of cheating as 3rd party softwears that are running independent of the game client.
    The game has if not encresed number of cheaters the same number…

  5. You think they are getting all the cheats. No way. I have 46k games and can pretty much spot a cheat,stat padder, and my favorite rerolls. I have almost 5 years in this game and honestly…..The game play is not as good as it was but that has to do with MM which everyone hates. I do believe cheaters should be banned. I think if WG really wanted them they could absolutely kill more cheats but the key is PROOF! The 3rd party SW may or may not be detected right away. The people abusing the game should be banned.

    1. Nah, you think you can. Unless you have access to a replay of the supposed hacker, you have nothing. Even when you do, you will be hard put to differentiate between actual cheating and skill, blind luck and/or technical issues.

      I have seen actual cheating in first person shooters. I have reviewed PB screenshots to see if people used wall hacks and the like. People whose gameplay seemed perfectly alright turned out to be cheating, whereas people who seemed to be unreasonably good were, in fact, clean. Lesson to be learned here: you can never tell. Not really. Especially not when you do not have all the relevant information.

  6. I think it’s great they are getting the cheaters out. I love playing the game the way it is. I don’t know how to use mods or even how to acquire them. And wouldn’t use them if I did. Got too much invested in the game to loose it.

  7. Read all comments and still not sure what the answer is. I have decided to drop WOT for a month as I am completely pissed off with the near constant hammerings. Last two days were less than 33% win rates. I am not a great player but I know I am better than my stats so I have to question exactly where the game is f***** up. MM, cheats, bad spreading or whatever, I just want an even chance to win. 23K games, 46.5% win and WM* of about 620 isn’t good but whatever I try I get nailed so it appears I will never get better but I do think it is more than bad play on my part.

  8. Many of the great players are famous youtubers and having a mod pack this means they can program dont they have unicum cheat mods that no one knows offffffffffff just a question ????????????
