Hi All,

 

Today for the first time I got banned, I was playing a random battle and an allied tank decided to just start pushing me so I couldn't play, I asked in chat for it to stop and it didn't after several minutes I had no choice but to shoot the player. Whilst shooting I was banned? I don't understand how this happened, and instantly (the replay stops when I was banned, I didn't even get to kill him), was the player a WOT DEV?

 

This is a link to the replay:

I am very confused, have you guys heard of this happening before?

 

Thanks for any help you can give.

Don't get me wrong, the guy was a knob end, but he got the result he wanted because you let yourself be provoked.

You shoot at a "friendly" tank multiple time, when you turned blue you had 1 shoot more till you were instantly banned, you took it thus you're now banned, simple as that.

Ok I see, it was automatic that makes sense. I would guess this guy is just going around trying to get people banned. I logged into a message from him saying he hopes I enjoy my ban. Oh and to the guy that asked yes it was my first offence :)

Don't shoot green tanks. Ever. If someone trolls you, either drive away until they give up or just go afk.

You got trolled by a retard , game is full of them @ all teirs. BTW I shoot them too just cuz it's fun , especially with a high alpha gun.

The diehards here will flame "Don't shoot green BLABLABLA"   , but some just deserve it and its worth the 1 hour ban

Yeh I will just go afk next time, it seems to be taking advantage of WOT game mechanics though its just another way of taking out friendly tanks.

​Yeh agree with this one >.< Did get Trolled but at least I understand how the game mechanics work now. I can honestly say i've played this game for around 2 years now, and this is the first time I have shot a friendly tank intentionally. Oh high alpha would have been better in this situation!

How is giving the troll the satisfaction of getting you riled up and banned worth it?

You shot a team mate and don't understand how that happened? 6K games and only now you know how the TK system works?

The key is to have a high alpha gun - the ban comes from multiple shots so you need to [edited]'em up in one.

Already accepted he wasn't. His original thinking was that he had been manually banned meaning he thought a human had viewed the situation and punished him as opposed to the griefer. He now knows this was not the case and that he acted incorrectly given the ruleset. This is all in the thread, not a whole lot of point in him trying to explain it again if you didn't read it the first time.....

Given he didn't even read the thread I would say the safe bet here is "no".

Why making a video and not simply showing us the replay?

​I couldn't upload the replay, the forum wouldn't support the file type.

Upload to WoT Replays

And as noted. For persistent harassment, the safest thing is to hit the Windows key, surf the net, visit the forum or play card games and drop back in to see if the idiot has got bored. Then report him (for all the good it might do).

Shoot greens tanks - no

Shoot reds tanks - yes

Shoot blue tanks - yes.

There we are 3 simple fundamental rules....

It can be frustrating when someone pushes u best to go elsewhere rather than retaliate.

If they push u into the open and u get instantly killed report offender, click exit battle and pick another tank...

Not entirely true.

 

With a high alpha gun just 2 shots can be enough to get you banned. Since it is based around Global damage ratio of Enemies vs Allies and In battle ratio of damage to enemies vs allies.
