Well, it seems WG is on the path to integrate most popular mods, and potentially locking down the client from most mod use. So likely skins/models still will be a thing, but function mods could be removed.

 

This isn't something to expect to be done in a single patch or two. It could take 1-2 years to get done.

 

 

That said, I'm not sure a mod which "aims for the weakest armor" is shown off well with a high-pen tank like the Tetrarch. Most tanks it sees, especially in that match are pretty easy pens. Video would have more effect with a lower pen tank being used as an example. 

 

Nor is this type of cheating near as prevalent as people seem to think it is. Especially if a player invests a ton of time/money into the game, as a ban for those mods is most often permanent.

I wouldn't say the game is "full" of cheaters, just a few (and I'd bet that most, if not all, of them play practically nothing but lower tier tanks).

 

Cheating really isn't as big of an issue as people make it out to be... I'll get accused of cheating for doing simple things, i.e. :

  • abusing bush mechanics (not getting lit when I fire)
  • penning someone in my lights
  • nailing someone in my artillery
  • etc.

 

People just like to cry "CHEATER!" when they don't understand why something is going on (or when they get their asses handed to them).

They cant fix it.

And I was looking for the rules ... post the link about the illegal mods, I couldnt find it.

And, yes, there r more illegal mods than those u saw in that vid.

And I dont use it because is boring. Is like if u were not playing.

I mean, I wanna drive, I wanna shoot, I wanna outplay the other, I dont want a silly mod to do that.

 

Edit: and if u have played wot, is so obvious that most players dont use illegal mods lol

The mods used in that video would be worthless if a bad player tried to use them in tier 10 against any decent player. Cheats don't compensate for ability except when demonstrating against people in tier 2-3 who have been playing the game for possibly less than a day. Yes, cheats are a problem, but not nearly as big of one as people make it out to be.

The amount of people complaining about cheaters is astounding, when there is so little cheating going on. I get accused of cheating every day, and I'm not even good.

Why play it? because this is a great game and the cheats within it arent game breaking and hardly influence gameplay at all.

There are more than a few players that use illegal mods in this game, I'd estimate it at being 20% of the ACTIVE player base, and that doesn't count the [edited]that run bots for credits.  I believe WoT is moving towards a game where most mods are eliminated, allowing and perhaps incorporating only those that don't affect gameplay. It will be a lot like the current console version of the game - where no mods are allowed at all.

 

Those that say just a few cheat are not being honest. This is game that invites hacks to gameplay with different aimbots, artillery red balls, destructible object spotting, lasers, enemy reload timers - all exist and are leveraged by many players. Does it affect my gameplay - not so much now, I can play well enough without using using them to counter those that do use them, provided I have skilled crews in the right tanks. 

 

Don't ridicule those that cry foul - cheaters do exist and they are plentiful. But don't whine too loudly about cheaters either - no cheat in this game guarantees victory. Report them with replay proof if you wish, but trying to shame them or call them out on a public forum is pointless.

Is that estimate based on anything at all?

"Full of cheats."

 

It's obviously not, so shut up. One person showing some cheats doesn't mean the community's full of cheaters.

If you know this person, find out what their normal account's winrate and wn8 is, I'd be interested in knowing if it's better with or without cheats and by how much.  With cheats it's obvious he isn't very good.
