Are there still players using weakpoint aimbots out there, in spite of recent bans?

It gets frustrating to be consistently snapped in weakpoints, even when both hull and turret are moving on the enemy tank.

 

Maybe i'm just a terrible shot, but i fail to see how anyone could be consistently hitting like that unaided...

An aimbot would only basically snap to aiming towards a specific weakspot, but whether or not they actually hit is still entirely up to RNG, which also means you can hit the most ridiculous shots when not trying to (like come on, we've all hit that 500m snapshot on the move once or twice).

Most of these suspected aimbots are called "using the brain".

If they banned everyone using it, won't prevent a new one to use it the next day will it? 

 

Then again, snapping is still RNG. As aimbots can only aim for you. Even if they turn and fire instantly at your cupola. If the circle covers half the screen, the aimbot won't sent it to the centre. It's not that reliable. So arguably, you can say you have as much chance with an aimbot that helps you aim, vs one that snaps manually good and sends the aim sight over it before the gun sights get there. As some guns have good enough stats to pull it off, even when moving for it to be 100% a cheat every time tbh. 

 

If it was, then every EBR driver would be on the 2nd ban by now.

That doesn't make it any less fair that they're using 3rd party tools unavailable to most others.

No they are all amazing supergeniuses who have memorised every weakspot of every tank in WOT, can hold the mouse over any rivet on the target they like while them and it are moving, have no human reaction time and dont worry about dispersion cos it never happens to them.

does aiming subconsciously count as an aimbot?

The inbuild auto aiming of World of Tanks is absolutely unuseable.

But they can release a Premium vehicle, like the EBR 90 FL, that works even like a aimbot.

 

Wargaming should improve the standard autoaim within the next upcoming updates at least.

The proper method to deal with those would be the blood eagle. Don't settle for anything less.

everyone pulls off a lucky shot occasionally but I seem to get unlucky misses and bounces more often. But the real problem is I am on the receiving end of 'lucky' shots endlessly, relentlessly, game after game, its getting to be a joke.

People really overthink this game too much and should really snapshot much more.

It's also a case sometimes I think of players snapshotting and hitting ridiculous shots and laughing about good RNG And whatnot, but if an enemy pulls it off it must be some kind of cheat.

Please look up the common fallacy of argument from incredulity.  Example: The claim that life evolved from bacteria to humans doesn’t make any sense to me, so the theory of evolution must be false”.

Search wotreplays for an E 75 doing about 9k damage on overlord and you'll see it in action.
