How are you going to stop the increasing number of players that pay to get boosted in ranked? 
Good players can earn a lot buy boosting other players in ranked and since they can finish ranked really fast they can boost several players.

May I ask for what were the main cheats ? What are they doing ?

2k players in EU is a lot, it seems to me. In every battle there is most probably at minimum one then. Hmmm, ... Not very motivating.

It is, as long as it's not done for money.

 

So don't pay with gift, that might be suspicious, pay on PayPal.

When looking at timing maybe its mainly players that were active in last regular season global map .

So over 2000 warned, over 600 permanently banned, many who cheated on ranked.

 

So these bans will not just be mod related, but due to players rigging battle results? AFK? or the ones regularily reported for unsportsmanlike conduct?

 

Mod hub is a bit of a joke, its never up to date, and been stated by many as a source for mods they feel they got banned for is it not?

 

Then you have the biast moderation in game, general chat and forums where someone simply disagreeing with an opinion gets you into trouble.

 

And what about how some players have stated they were banned 90 years ago for some mod they claim inoccence on, yet a final warning has no timelimit?

 

 

What I am trying to say is, players deserve some transparency regarding what and who are getting bans, any banned player should have a full documented account of the actions that led them to the said ban, and named lists with the reason for the ban should be put within the forum.

 

I am under the impression we have already seen players prove they never cheated yet got banned, it's 2021, 10 years and still a ban system like the Russian Secret Service.

 

Edit, I forgot to add, I cant actually recall one moment where I was for certain the target of a player using cheat mods, and to see only 2000 odd with less than half permanently banned and knowing only a percentage of that will be due to illegal mods, simply makes me confident that th egame is indeed for the main part free from cheating players, so well done on that part WG.

Mine! With the GF of his brother. Not sure if WG are somehow involved, but our next yearly family day might actually be entertaining nonetheless. :popcorn:

Reporting for unsportsmanlike conduct does nothing.

 

I often get messages from nubs who say they reported me for 'hacking', after I blind-shot them.

If you carry a game with a broken tenk some ppl will report you for UC as well.

Arties also get reported for UC, for obvious reasons.

If wg banned for UC there would be a lot of 'undeserved' bans.

 

In contrast to that people who get a lot of inaction/bot reports do actually sometimes get a time-out, not a perma ban though.

Can we get some clarification for what cheating in WOT?

Some games have aim hacks, wallhacks etc. However none of these strike me as WOT's mechanics such as accuracy, blind fire etc will not let you realize the other player has been cheating.

Sounds like YOU are part of the problem then. Collect proof and get them banned, or stfu.

Have we?

banned players who claimed they never cheated, sure, but banned players who proved they never cheated, I don't think so

I do wish they would name and shame these scummy players but at same time what is the point of banning them when few yrs down the line, they would be unbanned again like you did recently just because of the anniversary XD

Why you cant give names? Nobody can know players behind their nicks. So it cant be naming and shaming..
