    Knowing how SEA operates, those 32 perma bans must be serious lol

    “5.724 players got a permanent ban for getting caught a second time.” LUL

  3. Shade01982 says:

    Typo. On EU 3,186 were temporary banned.

  4. DeadArashi says:

    that’s a lot less on SEA then I thought there would be o.O

  5. Berto72 says:

    Lot of players tell that they use Tundra because near to all use it…. 3.000 temp ban and 800 ban? pfff….nothin…

    • StyleZ says:

      WG has no way of telling either you are using Tundra or you don’t.

      • DZ says:

        they would if they ran it through steam… then steam could VAC ban all the shitheads because steam will scan for independent programs as well running the process, and if its a known cheat, POOF! vac banned.

    • DZ says:

      whine more.. usually the people whining about a certain mod are the ones running the mod.. go f urself

    “No information on NA yet”.

    Translation: “We couldn’t find anyone playing on NA”.

  7. Vepe says:

    This is good news. Haven’t used even xvm after last update and the game is more enjoyable without pretty useless stats information (of course top clan players are still a priority target especially when clicking with arty for in-game MM balancing ;).

  8. Gunner says:

    i always knew there was a massive problem on the RU server, when ever I have signed in to the sandbox or test server Russians always seem to hit you without aiming and always in a weak point of the tank. Good job by Wargaming long may it continue,

  9. Liam says:

    You can throw all the numbers out there you want, but there is no proof that anyone was truly banned.

    • beepstar says:

      Or any proof that *everybody* is using hacks. Choose only what you want to believe, only accept facts that fit your theory. Opinion is truth. Welcome to the modern world.

    • JonseyMcDanes says:

      I mean…. you could just check the people who got disqualified from the top tankers event

  10. El Diablo says:

    Rita is a whore

  11. JonseyMcDanes says:

    glad there’s a crack down on this stuff, there was alot of spoopy things happening in cw before they started banning people(granted there still are some very spoopy things happening from some clans still, but its definitely alot less and pretty funny when you see an enemy team in a skirmish full of 0k cromwells)

  12. Rombat says:

    To mean something this bans shoud be weekly…not frome time to time.

    • PzBarkhorn says:

      Checking the entire player database is lenghty and hard. Its not some kind of active live database scanning thing, m8.

  13. pollakdelet says:

    833 pollack ban, polac delet

  14. i wonder if they dont ban the staff them selfs??

  15. Hungrian says:

    Good job WG!

  16. Flyingmanticore says:

    I know they won’t do it, but would be great to see which mods were the most used by banned players.

  17. Old Rebels says:

    My friend got banned temporarily for using XVM and 3D for arty Battle Assistant !? It’s mean that everybody who use mods for arty and XVM can be banned !

  18. Mathew says:

    Cheating’s bad, it shouldn’t happen mmm’kay! I don’t defend it, and I don’t like it.

    But I do want to take the role of devil’s advocate for a moment.

    The number of bans on EU and RU is huge, temp or permanent. Resentful banned cheaters will be spiteful. They lost face, and irrespective of their dishonesty, will be advocates for any criticism (just or unjust) against Wargaming.

    The cheating culture based on these figures seems too entrenched. The amount of bans to deal with the cheating will have to have an impact on their bottom line.

    Wargaming should have dealt with this from the beginning.


    • Xavier says:

      So you think WG shouldn’t ban cheaters because they won’t spend money on WoT anymore? Chances are they will make a new account and buy premium tanks again. Plus not that many NA players were banned so WG’s profits shouldn’t be affected too much :p

  19. […] Quelle: […]

  20. Always good to see some activity from wargaming, not too crazy but just enough to send a message

  21. AkrapovicSBK says:

    The only way to stop the haxors is BAN all mods, xvm etc. I would like vanilla game for everyone, no haxor, xvm clicker, tomato, rage problems. Just play and try to enjoy, everyone in his own way bad or good. Soon™!

  22. PlayR says:

    Is there really anyone who believes this bullshit?

  23. Harry Nak says:

    That is probably the reason why you see so many rerolls these days.

  24. WANKATANKA says:

    no cheaters is a thing of course, if you wanna make e-sport …maybe even WG got it!

  25. Fujitsu says:

    Warpack works like charm. No ban, what-so-ever. But it turn off straight away when I enter clan wars or stronghold. I guess ppl from warpack figure it out that WG is only targeting competitive gameplay right now.

    I think this is great news for ppl in clan wars & strongholds. No more insta-target ammorack 🙂

  26. siralexice says:

    Many new white players in low tiers, cheaters making new accounts.

  27. soulza says:

    lol well i for one am perma banned now , i was one of the 77 on NA server , but and its quite a big but!!! i thought or know i was using nothing illegal what proof have i ? well i turned my python logs back on after the seven day ban and only have xvm and a few mods i made myself installed, i am not hiding my status as i am not guilty i am simply pointing out that WG are wrong. many or probably most will laugh this off thats fine with me ,I cant do anything about the ban as there is no redress ,your guilty until proven innocent , and when found guilty there is 100% no proof so you cant even defend yourself, i liked WOT as it was pick up and play for 6 mins to 6 hours depending how you felt,
    i just hope it will not go the same way as warplanes and warships have gone but i fear it will. no loss i will leave it for a while then come back again no skin off my nose only this time i will save myself a few thousand pounds.
