So i was reading

and it really got me thinking is there a clear definition of what's illegal to use in this game ?

 

For instance the zoom-out mod gives players a clear advantage over those that don't use it and yet it is widely used and WG refuse to give that option in the settings.

Another example, destructable terrain pinging on the minimap. Most players can see it nearby, but due to camera limitation you cannot know what's happening on the other side of the map, but with this "mod" you can. This also gives clear advantage that can be game-deciding.

I know WG gave us the free autoaim so everyone can have it instead of just the cheaters, but what about the improved aimbot that play the game for you, shooting weakspots and calculating leading shots ?

 

What about disabling the entire forest on your client ? That gives you a clear advantage and you can aim your shots much better than people that don't have it.

And lastly what about the red ball people mention when trying to counter arty ?

 

Need a clear definition of what is allowed in this game and what isn't.

Since everything is client side how are WG even punishing players that use those ?

Also mods please don't close this thread as it's very relevant especially now where no one is playing unmodded anymore.

Me too. Not really necessary, but I don't care if someone uses mods like garage mod or similar utility mod.

Sweeping generalisations dilute your argument because I don't use any mods and a lot of people on the forum don't either.

I play with a single mod that swaps movable equipment for me. This obviously gives me a clear advantage over other players because I'll never forget to swap the binos and camo net across to my current tank and therefore I should be banned.

There are mods that are banned on all servers etc. I can't be bothered to find the list. It's on the forum somewhere. And I've been playing vanilla for over a year since they added the slim sight settings. No need for any mods as what I used before are already in the game. As do many others.

 

If it's shady, gives extra abilities to normal skills like auto aim, uses hidden info others can't see, or removes objects others have to work around. It's most definitely illegal. Zoom mod don't really fall under anyone of those. And thus so far.. have been allowed. And thus it's widely used by even the CC streamers in their mod packs etc.

 

The others you mentioned are. Aim bots that lead targets for you are not allowed. And is the most common one most have been banned for... when WG do a ban wave that is. Tundra that removes trees etc is not allowed. As it makes it easier to aim on targets behind vegetation. Vs going by the silhouette alone.  Red ball is ofc illegal as it makes it easier to counter arty, without even looking for the tracers like others have to.

Same here. Got to love all these special cases so convinced everyone else is cheating, hacking, modding.

How so ? If i have limited zoom-out and enemy has unlimited he can see exactly where i am facing when behind house, but i can't.

That gives clear advantage.

I play with National Voices - so on about 2/3 of my garage, nor do I! :teethhappy:

 

I use garage mods, and session stats - if WG put garage and in-battle clocks in the vanilla client, I may well bin xvm altogether, cos it really doesn't bring me happiness - ignorance is bliss, when it comes to seeing your team full of people with 70k+ games and 42% WR...:sceptic:
