So, i played the Steel Hunter mode all day, just had a game in which 2 players managed to synchronize so that they end up in the same match, and guess who won? Ended up being just the three of us, they ware driving by one another and focus fired me into oblivion, you might think that it was just in my mind, except that every time i used the radar they ware side by side, all the time they ware in range and when i met them they ware both full hp.

The stupid part is that there is no replay for me to report, as the game doesn't save them, and when i wanted to take a screenshot of the battle results i couldn't open the game results "Detailed information not available"  (pic attached)

had the same issue
1-2 minutes after the start of the battle, two players in the german tank side by side... yeah I got rekt, and I lost 2 chevrons because of that
not because they're skilled, not because I made a mistake, just because they're knowingly rigging the mode

 

for the love of whatever is holy to you WG, do something about that

Well rigging seems to be the go to for quit some players....

In the platoon mode I met some people (6) from one and the same clan. They teamed up and tried to kill us. Good thing was that they are extremely bad so we managed to win that 3vs6 but still.

They will, about 3 months after the mod is over, as they always do.

Complaining about people abusing the queue system to play as a platoon when everyone is solo is a pretty valid whining...

Yea, just experienced the same thing, and the worst part is that from in game there is no way to report them, so when i rushed out of the game, to post a ticket with the replay, i found out that the replay is not saved from this gamemode, so there was no way to prove anything.

So not only do players cheat in this way, but WG provides no way of proving it, and so they are never going to be busted!

I know i sound upset, and I am, because there is absolutely nothing i can do about it!(unless i record the battle with something ells, but that should not be necessary).

Had exactly the same thing happen to me - sad really that WG did't factor this into this version, or should find some way to stop an explicit violation of the game intent

Cheers WMB

I'm well aware but dang, you people got no sense of humor...

 

I used to play one game called Dust 514 on the PS3 in "clan"s and we often queue-synced with several squads. But the thing is, the enemies did it all the time too... That's the past though, and this is a different environment, nobody cared in that game because it was part of the strategy.

 

Just saying, the term is "q-sync", and I agree it's unfair. Dust was a more..."ruthless" game, and allowed more sneaky tactics, such as...this. It rewarded this kind of teamwork (with wins obviously).

 

Nowadays such a tactic is frowned upon :trollface: I feel old already. :mellow:

https://eu.wargaming...wot/my-tickets/

 

There is a contact support there. I did a ticket for the cheaters I encountered attaching the picture, maybe, hopefully, that is enough.

 

I'll do what I usually do with team killers etc. as well and contact the head of their alliance. If we can't get them banned, maybe getting kicked from their alliance can be deterrance enough to stop doing this in the future.

It's only easy to spot when they're in the same clan. 

Soon the cheaters will get smarter.

guess wg will take action when getting enough tickets about same clans/players, for example if they have 5 tickets about same clan/people they will also know its plain rigging and not coincidence of encountering ingame

 

would be lovely if their progress gets reset/rewards taken away and banned from that mode and week-month ban from game

Seen it a fair bit the last hour. But I've gotten top 10 spots each game. So more then I expected when seeing it. But as I've only had time to play late this past week, and will the next few days. I have to live with it. So not seen a single top spot due to it. Tho usually it's 3-4 from the same clan. Not seen many games with 8 or 10 tbh. As that game I was grouped up on and taken out rather fast early on.

 

But WG NA has posted news on their portal, and are atm issuing temp bans for offenders. Get caught again and you will get banned until the event is over. So if EU will announce they know about, and will take action remains to be seen.
