I disconnected from the server but left the game client running, and noticed that immediately WOT client started using more and MORE CPU while idle. AND GPU activity and TEMP starting rising HIGHER until I logged back in. 

 

This is very very weird.

What mods are you using? What pack?

Yes it's been known that some more obscure and non-mainstream mods that may be included in mod packs have had crypto-miners in the past. I would be very careful with Russian or maybe even some more obscure European mod packs. I don't recall any more NA based mod packs as all the players have either moved on or let the EU guys carry the market for it instead.

 

I would just be careful with what you install.

Game center is not crypto mining. It is checking for news and such. If you close it after picking the game then it is not an issue.

As for the OP post yes aslain's  modpack pack had one in it until he pulled it out. It was a third party mod but you never know.

I'm using a bunch of NON-XVM mods from Webium and Aslain, cosmetic stuff like crew, aim sight and zoom. Didn't notice this before until my pc started running hot with this patch.

WOT's Launcher has settings in which it will auto-download stuff as well as act as a "source" for other people to download the game.

 

Disable that crap.
