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:

  • 207 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.

1 – 7 Dec 2020 (156 accounts)
8 – 14 Dec 2020 (0 accounts)
15 – 21 Dec 2020 (11 accounts)
22 – 28 Dec 2020 (19 accounts)
29 – 31 Dec 2020 (21 accounts)

Conan.

How are there only 2 Player_ accounts in that list? I've provided conclusive evidence of 15-20 of them botting alone, let alone other people's reports.

 

How much evidence do you need?

Edit: Ha! and neither are the ones I have reported (some as many as 5 times).

I see the arty bots I reported also escaped. Maybe humans are actually capable of synchronising their movements with a random stranger while in arty view. All this time I should have been giving humanity more credit despite how many go beach.

I read about a secret event starting...I'm sure it said January 15-21.

It could be black market though.

 

You think I can find it now... nope.

You'll be surprised at how many people use macros (especially in certain clans). When playing artillery it's easier to notice. Guess it depends how much money a player puts into the game too.

Never put down to cheating what can almost certainly be explained by laziness or incompetence.

Not necessarily tin foil. One of the bots i copped was an XO of a formerly reputable clan. Got themselves a 274 too. But i guess wg are ok with that.

*Conan says macros are prohibited

*Cheating = Laziness?

*Australian Logic

 

Actually you'll find some of your mates using them, don't get super defensive. :medal: Unless you can explain regular 0.1 second repair/crew speed repairs by some so called unicums (even in silly situations/positions). Still, just means I'll keep shooting these players in artillery multiple times in a row.

I have no mates so clearly untrue.

 

I was referring to "Guess it depends how much money a player puts into the game too"

So we are talking about wg's laziness or incompetence then as opposed to them allowing paying players to bot.

While responses to the forms we log on discord aren't all that practical - it's discord after all so logical discussion is basically never going to happen. But i'd be curious what they felt was not bot like about the players who manage to spontaneously synchronise. It's almost like they think that one replay of them botting isn't enough evidence to ban someone who has also played as a human at times.

I have people I have submitted up to 5 replays of not smacked with the ban stick.

This goes to show that reporting and doing tickets with videos of m44s botting is a waste of my time.

I'm kinda curious, if replays of people botting weren't enough to get them banned, what on earth did the players who actually did get banned have to do?

One of mine did, out of an estimated 120 reports (only started recording them from the 12th December and from there it was 85).
