I got banned for a week from using solos modpack

now I come back and go to wots mod portal and download solos through the portal instead...

 

Q: am i guaranteed not to get banned seeing how I download the mod from the wot portal?

 

This is a serious qurstion because I dont feel like getting a second and permanent ban because WOT is screwing up.

 

It fair for a person who has put in 20+k games and plenty of money, to expect a solid answer to how my account will not be banned.

 

I hope this does get some sort of reply but if it falls on deaf ears and I get another forum ban and warning point, then congrats on having no clue how to run a business. If on the other hand you decide to help a base player and answer this question, then wow, thanks for caring.

This is why my wallet is closed.  The crazy banning system along with the Tanksgiving fiasco.  I have a long memory.

Ok.  I was just passing on information.

 

All I know is this:

Threads discussing disciplinary actions will continue to be removed and/or closed, they are against forum rules.

I am working internally on several of the larger questions regarding the mod portal and mod legality, and hope to have a proper detailed response for all soon.

In the meantime, regarding the claims that people are being banned for mods they just downloaded from the portal, the answer is a definitive noThe process for determining which accounts need to appear on ban lists is long and deeply involved, and the list itself was finalized before the mod portal even went live.

We will be responding in more detail to this issue soon.

If I missed something after that, I stand corrected.

Nice to see you back on the forum, I have been watching 'How To Lose' on YouTube, good info.

How do you know you were banned for using that mod? Did they tell you the exact mod you were banned for? I don't think they give specifics like that. It is possible that you used a mod in the past that was not legal and you got the ban for that instead. It can take them time to review the data before giving out a ban.

OP: Are you really expecting an authoritative answer from NA moderators?

 

This backwater is....

Let me clarify because its not my intention to get this deleted and forum banned again, 

 

i really want to be able to play WOT without worrying if I am gonna get a ban because if I get a second they say its for ever.

 

I have used Solos modpack for years, I did not download it from the portal, I always downloaded it from solos site. This is the only mod that I use and have used for over 2 years now, 

 

So my question is how am I "SURE" that if I download the modpack through the WOT Portal, that I wont get booted again?

its easy to know seeing how I only use one modpack.

No. You are better off just adapting back to vanilla.

It's a legit question, and I am not sure you will ever know 100%. I think with you being one strike away from a perma-ban, I would highly recommend that you go vanilla!

I recommend that you read 2. PROHIBITIONS and RESTRICTIONS - 2.8 Discussing disciplinary actions in the Forum Rules.

you know it wont be hard to do if they would just add more of the most popular mods into the game, they have already brought in the view range lines so why not just add sniper zooms and the rest of the legal mods that we love?

Im not talking about the ban..... for crying out loud people, I stated I got banned, thats all, Im talking about how I can "NOT" get banned and taling about using the portal so "following the rules". 

 

If you can not use the word Ban then how can you properly communicate the thought?

 

Again this isnt about bans its about how not to get banned.....

Did you use CCleaner to clean up your registry? (You really should do this at least once a year anyway)

 

While you may have only used Solo's in the past, that does not mean that you did not install a mod in the past that is now considered illegal and some remnant is in your registry.  These registry ghosts can still possibly be brought into the game logs when you start the game, even though they are not active.

If you are worried of being banned first do this.

 

Clear your python log before you use the wot portal mods. Then play as usual.

 

If you do get banned send them the python and any replays that you have. Dispute it and try to get any mods involved, go the formal route.


Or play vanilla :)

The bottom line is this.  You can't ever know unless you go vanilla.  It seems they are trying to sort it out, but because there is no transparency, you jut will never know and will always be on the chopping block, Mod portal or not.

If they say you are one ban away from permanent, I would go fresh installnof vanilla and not look back.  It’s not worth it.  Mods are convenient, but a ban is forever.  My 2 cents...
