Fair Play Policy Update: November 2018

First of a new Promotional video for the Fair Play policy.

Third-party programs that manipulate gameplay by granting an unfair advantage are not welcome in World of Tanks. We’ve come a long way in weeding out harmful mods since we started taking action against cheaters.

Sanctions by server.

  • RU. Very good news: 7009 players received their first and last warning, and 3143 accounts were blocked indefinitely for repeated violations.
  • EU. Recently, we penalized 2,972 accounts for using prohibited software and banned another 1,115 permanently for habitually breaking the policy.
  • NA. Recently, we’ve penalized 526 accounts for using prohibited software and banned another 232 permanently for habitually breaking the policy.
  • SEA. Since our last update regarding the Fair Play policy, we’ve penalized an additional 55 accounts for using prohibited software and banned another 20 permanently for habitually breaking the policy.
Cheaters Get Banned!

Getting flagged for using prohibited third-party software for the first time will result in a warning and a seven-day ban. Breaking the policy for the second time will end in a permanent ban. Please be careful of the modifications you are using, so if you are not sure if a mod is allowed or not, don’t download it to avoid the potential risk of losing an account you’ve built for years.

We’ll continue the fight to create a system as fair as possible. We also have an important message for you: ensuring fair play will always be our top priority. However, in the end, it takes two to squash the use of harmful mods: players and developers. Please stay away from illegal programs and help us create a great gaming environment! If you’d like a deeper understanding of what is considered cheating or exploiting in World of Tanks, head this way:


To make it as easy as possible for you to find game mods that are safe to use, earlier this year we have launched the Mod Hub, where you can find modifications officially verified by Wargaming. Find more information in the announcement or visit the Mod Hub directly.

      Ur name explains it all. These r habitual (continuous and constant) cheaters who don’t get the hint. They shouldn’t be playing a game if they’re always going to cheat. That’s not right for the rest of us. Then again these arguments will probably mean nothing to u since they’re obvious and u already overlooked them.

    Guess that’s why I run into actual bots every other game. Whatever WG uses to detect ‘cheaters’, I am *not* impressed by its effectivity.

    anybody else notice that on the RU server, they don’t get “Banned” for the 2nd offense, just “blocked indefinitely” for repeated violations. Indefinitely means, for an unlimited or unspecified period of time..so hell, a few days later they could be right back at it.

    Look up the controversy about Konvalina11! A czech CC, that was proved many times to cheat and WG banned those who wrote about it and covered up his violations!!!
