Dear Commanders,

In order to improve your game experience, here are the actions we've taken on the Asia server in the last month to keep our game fair and clean:

  • 785 accounts permanently banned for botting

 

Please be aware that using bots is prohibited in our Game Rules:

5.07 Using bots, clickers, macros, keyboard and mouse recorders, or any other similar methods that enables gameplay without the participation or with passive participation of the player within the battle.

Players who use bots (programs that imitate user actions in the game), clicker apps, and other similar methods of imitating user activity are violating the Game Rules. Having found such a violation, Player Support specialists will block the violator from accessing the game immediately.
 

The full list of banned accounts is as follows.

12 - 18 Oct 2020 (517 accounts)

19 - 25 Oct 2020 (43 accounts)

26 Oct - 1 Nov 2020 (225 accounts)

Spoiler

 

 

Let’s play fair and enjoy the game responsibly!

Nice work Conana. However, I'm still not seeing a Lesi** there, which is incredibly disappointing.
Reading is hard...

A fine start. Now do the same for those banned for rigging and illegal mods.

+1 Really good to read things like this. 

 

It seemed to me (vaguely) that the forums were completely abandoned by WG and then this rare sight of community service being done! I hope this thread will be edited/updated many times to inform about the new ban waves. With the end of year approaching WG is clearly "cleaning the house" to bring positive energy in the game.. Nice!

 

I know this has nothing to do with the end of the year lootbox sales approaching, but It indeed helped to change my mindset about the game. Hope we can see IP ban for certain kind of offenders, and please dont IP ban bot makers, instead register their IP number, then let them make a new account and buy a new premium tank, then as soon as they buy a tank THEN ban them lol.

Excellent work towards keeping our game healthy.

Hopefully many were at higher tiers as recently it has been a terrible plague on our enjoyment factor.

Again WG good job on tackling down the bots. I am more willing than never now to look for the xmas lootboxes. I hope this was not this year's last ban waves on bot accounts, as xmas approach more people stay in home playing, so it would be nice to have a few more bot cleaning waves :rolleyes:

 

Also, I cant wait for the ban wave in ranked battles. Need to strip the rewards from account boosters, I have a feeling that the same person playing multiple acccounts in ranked battles games just doesnt feel right.

 

IP ban would be nice. Funny thing is, he is reading this, knows who he is, but its simple to tell who is by the same trash playstyle.

Whilst I get it has to be done, on the flip side it gave quicker games with fuller teams and something to actually shoot at that had a better bot program than the WG ones. Really wish you'd expand the WG bots to play on more maps, can't get a game (constantly times out) and the ones we do get are on the same few maps.

Bot arty:

How do two non platooned m44 "players" in a single game both have around 338 battle each at the time, go and sit in exactly the same location, aim and fire on point consistantly both at the same targets and then after the game you view their service record and their service record looks like this:

 

T2 - M2 light: 4 battles @ 50% WR

T3 - M3 Stuart: 5 battles @ 100% WR

T4 - T6 Medium: 52 battles @ 44% WR

T5 - M44: 277 battles @ 45% WR

 

The second of the M44s looks like this:

T2 - M2 light: 4 battles @ 25% WR

T3 - M3 Stuart: 7 battles @ 43% WR

T4 - T6 Medium: 51 battles @ 41% WR

T5 - M44: 320 battles @ 43% WR

 

Edited: I forgot to view the bot arty on my team for the matchs:

 

Arty 1:

T2 - M2 light: 4 battles @ 50% WR

T3 - M3 Stuart: 7 battles @ 29% WR

T4 - T6 Medium: 166 battles @ 41% WR

T5 - M44: 658 battles @ 46% WR

T6 - M12: 249 battles @ 43% WR

 

Arty 2:

T2 - M2 light: 4 battles @ 0% WR

T3 - M3 Stuart: 8 battles @ 50% WR

T4 - T6 Medium: 20 battles @ 40% WR

T5 - M44: 792 battles @ 45% WR

T6 - M12: 303 battles @ 41% WR

 

Arty 3:

T2 - M2 light: 1 battles @ 0% WR

T3 - M3 Stuart: 16 battles @ 63% WR

T4 - T6 Medium: 57 battles @ 44% WR

T5 - M44: 233 battles @ 45% WR

Name in the format xXxXxXnnn (lower Case and upper case and 3 digits?

Report them here:

There is already a method for reporting BOTS in game or through support.

It's how a lot of bots are named by whoever is creating them.

I have seen this exact thing happen with Bison & Wespe but first time with M44.
