Looking forward to a fresh wave of traditionally repetitive "I was banned unfairly" posts. :popcorn:

I think alot more people should have been banned this is only a drop of players using cheats. As far as I know you only ban people that have been reported by other players but you don't have efficient mechanisms on servers which would detect the cheats right away. Cheating is really prominant in this game and if you don't step your game its here to stay.

Thumbs up!

(I still miss the monthly report.)

 

And yes, you should report the names of banned cheaters.

It is no shaming, as those are only in-game names AND they are already permanently banned. So no one would be harassed.

Should have resolved the cheater problem ages ago. People use hacks in tournaments today , and no one can hurt them still, so you are not doing your job properly most of the time.

 

Wargaming effectively dumbed down the game to a notorious level, I think there won't be 20 years anniversary, maybe not even 15 years.

 

Good job developers ! Thanks for this state of the meta, and your glorious changes to the MM system like the 3-5-7 MM... And you boast by banning cheaters that should not even be included in the game in the first place. WOW.

 

Thx for nothing

So you want a company to publish a list of players that have been banned.

Are you insane.

Good to see action being taken although we will never be able to verify if it actually has in the end. We just have to trust your word.

 

A bit like the same word that said the Pre-Order tanks were never going to be sold again......

 

You get the drift right?.......

If we didn't catch him in this wave probably we're going to catch him in the next one. As you can see we're more and more active. We count on you too to report any suspicious activity. :honoring:

I think we went over sharing the names of these players last ban wave. We're not allowed to do it and it's part of our naming and shaming policy.

And again very nice of you to save the "good" mods. If the game without them is boring and stupid, and if mods are really necessary, why not include them in the game? Each of them gives some advantage to the player, except those in the garage. This is not the first time you have boasted of alleged success. However, the cheaters are more and more. I know some of them personally and they brag that you don't touch them because they probably buy mods from you. Have you ever punished someone who buys a mods from *edited*

Removed the link to illegal mods

Oh I can assure you we're starting to receive the "unban me" PMs. :justwait:

The real problem here is the implementation. Having a folder that's being scanned by the engine at startup from which it loads every mod available...it's like an open invitation to cheating. Keep the WG approved mods but change the way they are loaded and how they access the game's engine, at least make their life harder.

Yes, hurra WG! You are great in banning but in explanation useless. Players think about, you pay for this game and when you are banned and ask for reason. The answer is a [edited]letter without quote the incriminated words, sentences. In addition you got a mail to rate the answer utility. It is pathetic and shameless.

Nice to hear that. Now people with permanent ban will have better stats (without cheats) because of reroll and start again from tier 1.

These players will probably be forgiven soon enough like WG claimed in an article not too long ago. Especially if they have been paying customers in the past.

That's a lotta bans. :amazed: Nearly 5 thousand cheaters.

 

You should definitely make these banwaves more frequent.

Defamation. "the action of damaging the good reputation of someone"

 

So you're saying the cheaters have a "good" reputation?

... and I was worried that I'm a bad player, while it was cheaters who made me feel miserable! Ha!

 

Shame on all of you who penned me after every milisecond-quick peek-a-boo, making holes exactly in most vulnerable parts of the tank. 

Now you have it! *takes off glove and slaps them*
