During the weekend, I have seen several enemy tanks being tracked while driving full speed and they did not even turn or slow down, their track being instantly repaired, faster than any human could do it, so this has to be the work of an illegal mod, AKA "instant track repair".

As far as I know, this mod is illegal.

 

I reported suspected illegal mods users in the past and always got a useless reply from support, i.e. "the automated system handles it".

Well, OBVIOUSLY NOT.

I also guess that if they use that banned mod, they also use other illegal mods.

 

So, mods, anyone at WG, please ... how to report these cheaters?

Iirc there is a mod that allows you to get the two step action done in one step ( one click of a button ) don't know if there is a mod that automatically repairs tracks like an automatic fire extinguisher but former isn't under banned mods iirc.

Sometimes, you don't need to use two clicks to repair.  It's happened to me several times lately - get tracked, click 4 .. and before I can hit the 5, I'm already repaired.  I guess it assumes that's what to do, if it's the only repair you need.

I use large repair kits, and the button I use to activate it is a thumb button which my thumb is on at all times in a match.  I fix tracks very quickly, probably 1/2 a second.

Noticed that too but i thought i just twitched the button twice without knowing.

showing the replay to you is as useless as contacting support about it - you can't issue bans, right?

track autorepair has explicitly been declared illegal by WG.

yes, I also see people repairing their tracks *very quickly*, but when you track them when they drive at 60 kph, their tank skids and slows for about half a second. I'm talking about tanks that just continue driving on as if they hadn't been tracked at all.

It would be really interesting to see it in action.

 

Yes, naming and shaming and all that, but you should be fine as long as you don't accuse an individual of using cheats.

Unless we see a replay we're assuming you're lying.  No reason why we wouldn't.

Did you even considered the fact that maybe YOU DID NOT TRACK THEM AT ALL ??????

Also, replay or it did not happened.

Hey WG, ban the bad mods. :angry:

 

 

 

 

That would be $60.000



No, wait, I'm not a mod...

It could be nothing more than a delayed packet, you receive the tracked info late, your client starts rendering the tracking animation then your client gets the repaired instruction.  Your client tries to deal with it smoothly, you don;t want tanks going from running full speed to tracked and stopped instantly, so to you it looks as if they never stopped.

clutching at straws there...

no, delayed packets certainly isn't the cause, otherwise tank movement wouldn't appear smooth.

posting replays of cheaters is against forum rules.

yes, WG protects them.

 

I just want to know where I can send the replay so WG can take care of the cheaters.

Depends how good the WoT client is.  It is the job of the client to make things appear as smooth as possible.

 

Far from clutching at straws, I would suggest you are being very dismissal of any theory which does not fit your preconceived idea.

Send it to support but it's useless as evidence, you need their replay.

Fixed that for you. You can try mailing the replay to support but I doubt you'll get very far, support tends to supply these standard dismissive answers when people report things that Wargaming has made an automated system for.

I've seen it happen plenty of times. The people offering up ridiculous theories on how it might appear to be automated repair of tracks when it really isn't are great. They have either never witnessed it occurring themselves, or they use the mod themselves. There are other possibilities, but forum rules forbid me spelling them out.

Thanks for making the thread though. It's always entertaining to watch the Edited about when you turn the light on.

One thing that comes to mind.

Do you guys realize how much money WG spends on CS having to deal with people that think that anyone that shot them or figured out to stay in cover when u loaded (by knowing how fast tanks reload and hearing a shot hit and miss)and pulling out to shoot when u not loaded), and shooting obvious friggin bushes, and a host of other things are cheating?

 

This is why they went automated.  To save money.  Because, GASP!!!! WG is a business and they want to make money so that they can pay their employees, rent, electricity, insurance, bank fees, lawyer retainer, and heavens to betsy, the Owners get paid as well.
