Wow! deadly impressive….
Ban anymore on the NA server and there will be no more people to play wot lolol
Not enough…moore wave bans please…
Is it ban waves? I thought they banned people dynamically and post updates every once in a while.
61 players banned on the NA server now we won’t even have enough players to have 15v15 games anymore LOL
The new MM seems so screwed up that it is creating short battles in 5 seconds already. It is never the top tiers missing from the battle, always the bottom tiers are missing.
The biggest problem is still warpack which is not covered by this “anti-cheat system”. With its auto aim (pre-aim) can hit a zig-zaggin’ Batchat from 450m 10/10 times. I completely understand that banning the premium users, using this kind of mods, would hurt WG financially but would make the game a lot better. In my opinion we need perma ban without warning and lots of them.
I disagree – never ban any player for anything including chat. If they have cheat mods then turn their tank purple & perma-light it the entire battle. Then allow anyone on both team to shoot them for points until all mods are removed. If someone is bad during chat then have a ban from chat option also.
Even funnier if WOT started screwing up the illegal mod to the point that the cheater no longer trusted using them. Imagine you use a mod and WOT purposely destroys the graphics or aiming or shell velocity to the point the game is total mess. You uninstall the mod & everything works again – what are the chances you keep using mods ??
They’re banning players that are just making some poor decisions instead of guiding them back to legal game play. I think they are going about this all wrong….
Funny idea, but no.
WG want a cleam game, players want a clean game, – it would look messy as hell (and would be unfair as hell) to have perma-lit purple tanks driving around, of which you know that they’ve cheated and still cheat, by the way…
=> Still better to ban them.
(After a fair warning…)
Wish WG console would do soothing about AFKers and trollers.
RU 7d ban 8,757 (0.28%) / Permaban 3,579 (0.11%) Total=0.39%
EU 7d ban 1,625 (0.18%) / Permaban 605 (0.07) Total=0.25%
NA 7d ban 184 (0.11%) / Permaban: 61(0.04%). Total=0.15%
SEA 7d ban: 131 (0.10%); Permaban: 39 (0.03%). Total=0.13%
Ballpark percentage VS active players/week (data from wot-news.com).
Interesting to see SEA active players/week closing the gulf to NA level, both on a downward trend.
Bottomline, numbers are below 1% of active players. Either there aren’t that many cheaters out there or WG is just using its ban-hammer for the sake of appearances (i.e. there is little seriousness).
I find the latter more plausible 🙂
The reason the numbers are so low is that WG lacks any real way to detect cheats. They are only catching/banning the real blatant and stupid cheats.
