Isn't this supposed to be solved by a "Mod portal." In which mods are uploaded and vetted before release to the public? Any further news on this?
endgame

There's an update today:

Block Quote

 Since our last update regarding the Fair Play policy, we've penalized an additional 695 accounts for using prohibited software and banned another 174 permanently for habitually breaking the policy.

 

Hey... that's actually a non-negligible number!

Great work - I wonder if any of those Football Mode players with ridiculously high win rates (100%) but have never played a random battle before are included - and maybe their main acc's as well! That's be juicy!

That is certainly a big number considering the number of players we have. we are maybe half of NA and they have 814/ 215 bans. More cheaters on Asia?

How many are to the pros of the football mode i wonder?

I knew it. He is using the vanilla mod pack and not getting detected/ banned. WG is favoring some people on the "white-list" and has put people like me on the "black-list". Vanilla mod pack users to be banned please.

With another round of FPP bans out (thanks as always wg) probably worth asking again if any significant changes to the legality of existing mods - Eg AA+. Is it safe to assume the 'legal' aa+ is still legal?

I take the line that if my mods come from the WOT Asia Mod Portal and are only downloaded from that portal I am safe.

If not, if I get banned for using mods supplied by WOT Asia then I still did my best to play legally.

 

Wether or not people think some mods should or should not be allowed is irrelevant as I "should" be playing fairly when my only mods come from a WG site.

 

Oh and GG WG, always glad to see cheaters getting banned :)

Agreed.

 

How do you find specific mods on there? The search doesn't appear to look at specific mods.

In my opinion aa+ that uses the approach of only having to mouse over the enemy tank to lock on for 5 secs is still an unfair advantage to those that play vanilla as it completely takes away any chance of miss-timing your click to lock when running ledges, cresting hills etc. this basically takes a player interaction out of the equation.

 

This still needs to be reconsidered imo...    

 

Oh quick ed yes i'm bad at tanks in before usual ltp / get gud comments.

Yep it definitely gives an advantage, yet for some reason WG decided that was on the legal side of the grey area. My guess is they worked out how many people were using it and put the mod in the 'advantage but improves game' category. Hence from what i've heard they are looking at incorporating it or something similar for the wheeled vehicles. The other way to look at it would be that if so many people were using it they may risk putting a dint in player numbers by banning it.

I only use Aslains, don't bother with xvm anymore, but it has a good variety of aim circles, I like standard in white, clan emblems, fog remover, Gnome Fathers because WG sounds are slack and a few others.

Yes it is an advantage, but this game requires a little more thought than your average FPS, it would be a shame if quick fingers were all you needed.

Same here.

There are a huge number of mods on there, not sure why anyone would need to look elsewhere for legitimate mods.

On that note I loaded up Aslains and notice there is a mod that indicates on the mini map which way enemy vehicles turrets or guns are pointed, it is not a line as such but a little V from the enemy marker on the map that corresponds with which way they are aiming, not which way they are driving.

 

Can anyone confirm, is this mod illegal?
