You should not warn them, ban them immediately. With this system they can use it until they are caught and have another chance into the game again. Zero tolerance would make them think twice.

Meanwhile I am still chat banned for allegedly insulting honest players for impossible shots and pens. Because WG is fair.

If it happened it was not impossible so that sounds entirely fair to me.  In fact I'd have you game banned if it wasn't so funny reading comments from people like you.

There are no impossible shots and pens, nobody can cheat about this :facepalm:. Learn the game mechanics and you understand how it worked.

Or use a Mod (battle hits viewer, helps me a lot in positioning better) to see where you got penned.

They will never name and shame. You know why? Because in fact they don't know what they (WG) are doing, they just run a script from time to time, script that bans some accounts by some mystical criteria. 

WG is not able to tell what forbidden mods someone is using. How I know this? I had my account suspended in the past without having any mods at all. Neither allowed nor forbidden. WG could never give any explanation why they blocked that account. In the meantime I see colored direction arrows in the videos of some youtube streamer and nobody bans him...

Speaking of suspensions, I am still (permanently) suspended on chat. Without any warning that the next suspension will be permanent. Can't call a *edited* a *edited* nowadays. I haven't had that luxury to be warned. But sure. Illegal mod users should definitely get a warning. Because words hurt more than a sword, right?

 

And yeah, btw, I definitely have to mention: seeing someone on my friend list who has that cute little "chat blocked" sign still makes me laugh at your grammar.

At least, hire someone who can write a proper syntagm, because "chat blocked" can be misunderstood on many ways. One of them being "this user has blocked you from chatting with him."

You know how it is: if google translate say "chat blocked" then this is it. I have shown them that they have a writing mistake on the website at some moment. The answer was that I should not bother them with such small problems.

From main rules of internet :

.....

"32. You must have pictures to prove your statements. rule 32"

 

So in another words. Provide names or it dint happen.

It's still shocking how the number of illegal mod users is still that high... 2800 warning bans and 782 permabans in this wave? You'd think people would learn and play fair but nope.

 

What about the ones who haven't been detected/found? Those players are still out there...

 

 

Shouldn't it be possible to make the game simply crash once it detects an illegal mod is being used?

You have to understand that some people don't even know that they use illegal mods. As long as WG don't tell them which illegal mods they are using... 

 

And yes, is easy to make the game crash when illegal mods are detected, but why should they do it? Is not in WG's advantage to disconnect players.

I guess it's no coincidence that this ban wave follows the first round of the football competition.

That would help people writing illegal mods know what can be detected.  You try your mod on a throwaway account, if it doesn't get detected then you use it on your regular account.

All seems fair enough and I guess we will have to trust they are acting correctly.

Other than downright cheaters it is possible for someone to get a 7 day ban by using a mod they think is ok not everyone haunts the forums its possible for instance to download a modpack and for there to be something thats illegal.

Since no one is going to tell them specifically what this mod was they have 2 choices.

Immediately drop all mods and never use them again or hope that an "approved" modpack will not cause them to get a permanent ban.

 

I use mods and I do so to make the game more interesting to me it could be argued that some of those I use do give a small advantage.

Jimb0s gunsight though I change  all the time, given my eyesight I am always looking for one that clearly shows me the center aiming point against any background colour no matter how intense the action is.

I use a zoom in mod because I find the in game one very awkward and clunky to use mine has a default zoom of x2.

Those are the two I really would not want to be without.

 

In addition I use some features of XVM though the win chance and stats I do not want or need.

I do like the team list to be colour coded by type, player ability no but I do like to identify how many heavy tanks SPGs tds etc are on each team and do that during the 30 seconds before the game starts.

I can manage it without that but I have better things to do like examining the map and working out where to go rather than deciding if a T34 is the American Heavy or the Russian Medium etc.

Don't think that gives me any game advantage.

 

Last mod I started using 2 days ago and its improved the game for me so much.

Gnomefathers sound mod.

I love what wargaming did with the sounds with one exception.

Smaller caliber guns ie pretty much anything below 100mm have awful sounds when you are inside the tank in sniper mode.

On my system its a click 75mm guns  do not go click.

Yes ok if you are inside a tank with headphones on and maybe some other sound muting system it may sound like a click but this is a game.

I want a kaboom or at least a boom.

The mod also seems to have fixed the problem of silent hits where you get shot but don't notice.

So there you go 4 mods that from what I can read do not count as cheats.

checked my account.

 

still can log-in....thx god!

 

I was really scared this time around, because I used the obj_268_4.exe a lot before the last patch....

 

I know cheating is bad, but it was so tempting to roflstomp pubbies. They did not even know what hit them!

 

obj_268_4.exe made your armor non penetrable, eliminated all weakspots, gave u insane speed and agility.

 

A shame that it seems not to work so well anymore with the new patch.

Now if there were an official "fair play policy" towards the MM System....no more bots, a volunteer system for the +2/-2 MM, and a +1/-1 MM set up put in place of the current MM.  Life would be great!
