Would this be the Same Curse that recently had a Virus on its system which hijack a load of MMO logins?

http://www.curse.com...-spread-through

To be fair it sounds like bad luck. but it did cause me to instal Script blockers to my browser.

It's good to see the devs support for mods , it's the only way many games can reach their full potential (Silen Hunter Series , COH Eastern Front ect ect  )

I guess this is the admins way of saying those of us who still play default better start breaking the rules or be left behind!

Also isn't curse the place who sell your passwords?

Now I'm confused...

Are those mods illegal or not? Cause I like the sound of the Increased zoom, and had never heard of it until now.

Serious questions for the admins and devs.

1) By recommending this site and endorsing it, do you endorse /all/ the mods available implicitly?
2) Do you review the contents of these mods and do you actively screen for those which breach the EULA?
3) Do you plan on actively looking for and/or influence Curse.com to remove mods which breach the EULA?
4) Do you endorse, if silent on these issues, mods which alter the speedtree engine, thereby breaching your licensing terms?
5) Now that you have endorsed mods openly, do you plan on adding to the EULA, in particular the clauses prohibiting third party software interaction?
6) Will you create and implement a 'fair use of mods' policy?

The above questions are serious issues. Some are idle curiosity, some are good business practice, some are legal concerns. Modification of the game files allows for things which are much more unbalancing than the artillery tracer issue you spent so much time eradicating, and could even cause the issue to reappear through a mod that re-enables the old functionality (If it hasn't happened already).

A coherent response on this would be very much appreciated.

Yeah I think ill be avoiding curse.com like the plague. Sorry but too many of my freinds who used that site for other MMO's have had there accounts hacked because of that site. I will use mods but only those uploaded to sites I actually trust.

Especially would like an answer to the above seeing as all the T&C a site has to agree to in order to appear here.

Also still waiting on answers on what happened to the 2012-05-03 YAWR.

Also, why this "beyond 0.7.3" info was missing from here.

If you wnt use mods for wot you don't need to instal anything. All mods are little changes in normal files, most of them are images or flash files.

Same as WoW (no instaling anything, just copy to addons folder) yet it still happens sadly.

The very first mod I noticed when going to this site is the zoom out mod which as far as I'm concerned is totally illegal and certainly should not be promoted by the WOT team themselves -I won't be using it and I urge anyone with a sense of fair play not to download it.

Shame on you devs for trying to convert honest people into cheating at your game :angry:

total war, mount & blade are both escentials in modding history ;)

anyway I just find it funny some moders had to hack the game to make the mod and wg doesn't realise it not that I have nothing against it they actualy did nothing wrong but its realy funny

now you finaly reconginse them shouln't you make an official mod site where people can talk/announce/reveal their mods?
an esscential part would be awards ofcourse this would be a good impulse for the modding imo

the only problem would be the fact its a russian game if you untherstand what I mean

Too bad most of uploaders don't give any credits to original authors. I found a guy who describes himself as author of many mods even if he isn't and mods comes from this and RU forum... That's wrong.

Also I can't understand why you're promoting 3rd party site where people can anonymously upload mods and you have no control over that. It doesn't look safe at all... Still official forum is the best and the safest way to get mods.
