Dear Commanders,

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:

  • 315 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 Feb 2021 (79 accounts)
8 – 14 Feb 2021 (110 accounts)
15 – 21 Feb 2021 (125 accounts)
22 – 28 Feb 2021 (1 account)

 

IMPORTANT!

  • Reports submitted via the Player Support page are being processed individually by our team and will not be reflected in the list of banned accounts shown on this page. Please rest assured that all rule violations will be dealt with appropriately in due course.
  • Accounts identified as victims of phishing that got used for botting may also have been removed from this list. To prevent this from happening to you, please remember not to click on any unfamiliar/malicious links sent to you. If you have accidentally accessed such websites, be sure to run a virus scan on your computer and change your passwords for both your Wargaming.net ID and associated email account. Stay vigilant!

Let’s play fair and enjoy the game responsibly!

Well to celebrate another ban wave I reported the three SPG on my team this morning for botting.

 

I am sure I will get a cut and paste answer and be none the wiser if they were sanctioned.

Even stranger is the note suggests that support won't list them. Cries of some rather dysfunctional processes. It's no wonder there are so many bots out there.

The 52%er who got a week last time, spent one day humaning his account, then reverted to botting on the next day, churning out hundreds of battles a day in the 703, kv5 and SP. I guess he'd already botted for many thousands so it was safe for him to assume the chances of him getting caught again were very slim.

Noticed that too. Was labelled as a fair play update yet all we see is a bot ban. Raises the question, if they've been this ineffective at quelling the bot plague, how effective were they at targeting cheats?

If they are perma banned what's the issue of revealing the players/bots names? It can't be a breach of the skirt support hides behind with "protecting privacy data" if they are no longer playing?

If they were really serious about illegal bot/mod, there would be no illegal bot/mods in the game...

"*lackberry_****" - weirdest thing. For an account that was permanently banned I've had him in two battles today. Both of them in SPG, both of them no response when lit or blindfired.

To be fair there were probably multiple verstions.

Ah yeah. They banned the one who was botting in tier 8 Prems, not the one botting in SPGs.

Saw a bot E3 in Ranked........

 

Follow friendly tanks and then stop behind them and do nothing

Yeah botting qualification is pretty common. As are all the 47% and below players. Thankfully they get thinned out as you rank.

They can't ban all the bot accounts, imagine how much money SEA server would lose?
