Despite WG claim that they are tracing illegal mods and so called E-bay accounts , on a daily basis we see a lot of these things happening everyday .

For example today there was this guy in Foch and he was acting weird which didn't match his 2300 wn8 and i was suspicious and when i went to wot-life i saw this

And then next battle i saw this pz iv s which was behind our arty with camo net on his tank and after i checked wot life i saw this

Interesting things you will see everyday in wot , what do you guys think ?

 

EDIT: found 2 more of these rats and they were platooning together too :D

With the first one, Its pretty obvious. But the second, Could just be him having a bad day, or maybe a sibling/child playing on the account

option 1. It can be an e-bay account.

option 2. Or daddy's little son plays.

 

(I vote for the 1st option)

 

Ps.: WG does have much human resources for these kind of activies. Actual living employee cost too much. So while WG forbids selling accounts, actually WG does not do much against it.

Tomatoes should sell their accounts on E-Bay, perfect XVM camo. Nobody will suspect anything, and when they realize you're actually pretty good, they'll be all like "they set us up the bomb!".

Yep, last one could just be someone logging in once and a while to confirm that the game's still a mess.

It's not limited to these 2 only unfortunately , for example once every month or 2 i check this guy and when this account was sold the account overall was 3100 and look at it now (the owner was german and the guy who has it now is turk)

The second one could be me if you added 100 to all ratings - nothing suspicious, and let's be real, who would buy that account anyway. The first one, however, looks like a clear case of eBay indeed.

Can't say that I be bothered by the stats of an account I wanted to buy. It's the tanks, crews etc. you'd want isn't it?

Maybe they're the same player but got brain damage due to a motorcycle accident, and still enjoy player the game regardless?

Hmm. To be honest, I haven't put much thought into this issue; I always thought that people buy accounts to get fancy colours. Guess you are right.

I think you pay too much attention to numbers.

To me it just seems rather pointless as it's not asthough it's not going to be quite obvious what's happened.

Be honest with me now - do you pity those fools or laugh at them?

Look at the average tiers in these columns and calm down a bit.
