Well, every six months or so WG announces their cheater slapdowns, 1,000 or so every time, so cheaters do exist in the game. Why worry about it, we'll never know who does it.

 

Do they really?

I think not its just away to keep others happy and let them think that WG is really doing cheat bans If they don't show a list its not happening anyplace but in there heads,

"Think they will buy it if we say we are banning cheaters? We can just ban accounts that haven't been played in months or years "

"I don't know lets try it."

"Yup they bought it. :)"

Slaps on back all around.

Every wave that goes by, we get a walnut or two who post about them being permabanned and how they are totally innocent.  I've waffled between buying their claims and being a bit dubious of them, though that's mostly down to how much botting players can get away with, which I know from one notorious botter in the past who got 3 account wipes before he was finally perma'd.

I doubt cheating is a big deal, at least on NA (based upon WG's ban announcements). Griefers probably cause more trouble for the player base generally.  However cheats are easy to find- before Modhub came online any search for legal mods and skins would turn up lots of unashamed cheat mods. I'm not going to mention any names here.  I think that the fact that any search for mods came with cheats mixed in like Raisins and Bran that it is easy people to conclude that cheating is widespread.

 

If cheating is possible you can be sure that a significant portion of the player base is cheating.  I have no clue whether it is possible, nor do I care to investigate, because I won't run mods anyway.

I have killed a bunch of arty, tds and tanks merrilly by viewing the areas so many plant their butts.  Plus a few other things I learned on the way to spot them when they are invisible.

Thank you guys for your input and tales of woe.  There's definitely a large lack of knowledge out there.  

 

Happy Tanking!

Many players "Have had their Accounts Banned" in an article released by "WGA" Fact...

Sometimes we all have made impossible shots on the fly and said to ourselves... oooh I"m good

Othertimes a perfect can't miss situation goes horribly wrong... it's just RNG

 

[Q] what is tis RNG and how is it applied...  anyone?

Random Number Generator

 

Used to ensure that up to 25% of your perfectly aimed shots don't go where you aimed. :honoring:
