I have noticed that more than a few are running speed hacks and other add ons that allow them to shoot through solid objects, see everyone on the map and other things that the game mechanics are no supposed to allow.  I have noticed one big way to spot those running them.....frame rates drop off.  I was working an arty piece and when I scanned over certain people, my frame rate dropped to almost nothing...when I move off them, it returned.  I would go back to them and the same thing happened.  It wasnt that there was a lot of action and some were just sitting by themselves.  Is this going to be allowed within the game?

indeed,everything is processed by their servers,so un order to run any type of hack you would need to be in their servers changing things.Anything like that they would notice right aways as well.:-)

It is almost impossible to hack W.o.T.s multiplayer. Only the most skilled hackers are able to hack their servers to where they have an advantage. W.o.T. servers don't run on 3rd party servers like you would see on some Xbox 360 games like Call of Duty, or Halo. Or on PS3 games also. If a person was able to hack the multiplayer of W.o.T. they would be quickly found and permently banned.

Also as we all know, game add-ons are approved by WarGamming, only if they don't "cheat" like hacking would.

There's a meme for "hax" somewhere. It was pretty funny, but I'm too lazy to dig it up from a post way back when.

ugh, don't mention those horrid things that happened in call of duty. the only thing i did notice about when they started on modern warfare 2, it happened shortly after the shutting down of the chrome hounds servers and then their purchasing by EA for modern warfare 2. shortly afterwards, all the hackers that cut up chrome hounds began to have fun with modern warfare 2.

all things can be hacked. someone with the skills just has to be bored enough for a cheap thrill to do so. the likelihood is very low, maybe .02% chance of happening, but hopefully the servers will remain secure.

Great too see replays and videos of these awsome hacks. Got to see it to believe it. Sure as sure!

This game can easily be hacked but to keep the "hack" up and running it might need to be constantly updated to keep WoT confused/guessing.  

I'm pretty sure there is people playing this game with "hacks", other wise, why would WoT have the "bot" option in the report menu?
a bot is more simple to create, I'm guessing..

a while back somebody posted a video on Dailymotion while I was searching for WoT videos, the date said "2009" a year after World Of Tanks was introduced.
This person had an Aim Bot, a Credit Generator, Gold Generator etc. obviously WG stepped its Security game up but still, the Server on their side was hacked by this/these individuals.

So hacks, do exists. Don't think only because it's Server Sided things can't happen.

All it takes is just one committed hacker or team.

It is very hard to hack Wot because it is all done server side to hack it would require hacking the server itself witch leads to a perma-ban and legal/criminal prosecution

Don't forget, World Of Tanks is a world wide game.

Google hasn't even found the individuals who hacked them....

A "bot" is not a hack.

It is a program to simulate a player moving the tank and shooting, in no way does it compromise the WoT servers.

For the last time:

THERE ARE NO HACKS IN WOT!
Every calculation is made by the server not the client,all game actions are server sided and its impossible to hack the servers.

It may be hard to hack and they may get shut down soon after, but hacks do exist, I've seen them. I've seen a KV-2 moving with the speed of a PZ38nA. I've seen a lone enemy Type 59 hold down a whole column of tanks by permatracking each of them firing through the ground then up and vanish while surrounded by allied tanks. I've had a friend report being killed by a player and tank that wasn't in the battle.

The fact that WoT is a server side game does not make it immune to hacking, just harder. If it connects to the Internet, it has the potential to be remotely hacked.
