Might be yes, if mod was downloaded from official WoT source.

Then again might be no if not sourced from WoT.

Think I will sit on the fence....

Years ago I used to be indecisive now I just can't make my mind up.

I ask because someone on discord used it,and a discord moderator said its not illegal, but as far as I know its illegal

As per the fair play policy's description, it is technically legal.

https://eu.wargaming.../article/10241/

 

Personally though, I'm against it.

 

Nor can I, in good consciousness, either in private or as clan leader, suggest people to use it.

There are hit box skins on the official wg mod page so yes it's ok to have.  However I don't know why it's ok as it gives you a clear advantage over someone running a vanilla client, though the same can be said for a number of other authorised mods.  Broken game is broken.

Hitskins like that are legal.  Most of them are pretty inaccurate and they encourage you to shoot at parts of the tank you might not be able to penetrate but they are legal.

 

There are/were some with transparent hulls which showed the actual module positions, those are banned.

Im not sure what advantage there is to knowing the driver sits behind the drivers viewport, the engine is under the engine deck, the commander sits under the commanders hatch, ammo is everywhere...... But if there is then I guess I'm a dirty cheater.

Mods that give you an ingame advantage in a positive way are legal (i dont know why but hey i dont make the rules).

The OP requested closure of this topic, so I assume he has his answer and I will close it.
