At 100m, A type 5 length away from target is just under 15m, 15% off meaning not even 10'' from target. And you can still miss that.  Armoured cars don't seem to

I would love to see a day, where there are no mods allowed, at all.  Straight vanilla client all the time, 24/7, all year long.

XVM needs to be removed due to the toxic environment it fosters.

I can see that.

 

But, please clarify how a garage manager that helps me move crews around tanks in a hanger somehow impacts your game play once the [Battle!] button is pressed.

l heard it from someone on the forums.

And while l don't like him, he certainly is good. And is doing better with said wheeled vehicles. 

 

l do not know the vertical distance you can be off target but still snap on

seems like stating the obvious, that should have been banned from the getgo. That is a huge advantage.

What is weird is I could of sworn any mod that showed the direction of the enemy barrel or gun was already banned.  The out of render mod, I cant even believe that was considered a legal mod to begin with, maybe it is new no clue I havent used mods in years.  I know the arrow display used to be a popular mod but I am glad it is gone but I also think the only mods that should be allowed is cosmetic mods so I am probably in the minority here about mods.

 

I don't think you are in the minority, I think that's a very reasonable take.  Any that actually effect the battle should have been banned a long time ago.

I've been using Aslains since __WarChild__ told me about it.  It really helps simplify the game for me and makes it cleaner.  I never thought the direction thing on the minimap should be legal, but I have been using the directional arrows thing recently to help me see who's closest to my tank.  I don't mind removing that, but I only used it because it was in Aslains and I figured it was legit.


The only other thing I don't understand is the marker thing.  When tanks on my team spot enemy tanks and then go dark, I see a red marker on my minimap where they were last spotted - no matter where on the map.  Is that illegal too?

lt is a 15 degree cone, for example, your width for establishing a lock is like the gun traverse and sweep of Ferdinand or SU85. 

Game breaking? Yes.  When someone uses auto - aim, and miss-clicks.....or takes them 12 times to finally successfully click the outline and score the lock  A) that takes times  B)  they are taking hits doing it or are distracted from other things   C) the enemy could get away too  D)  Out of all the miss-clicks, chances are they WERE  WlTHlN  15  DEGREES, and would have otherwise locked on with the armoured cars assisted lock.  lt is broken.  Can auto-aim assist lock stay on ACs? Sure. Should it be for other tank classes, no. Should other tank classes get it solely for targeting armoured cars? Yes.  Armoured cars have it for all. Tanks and TD  (not arta)  have it but just for AC

In this vid its noted that the lock on feature for the wheeled vehicles is 2.25 degrees (@ 3:38).

This is also distance dependent and is most noticeable at distance. @ 3:56: "if the enemy is close the aiming angle may align with or be within the vehicles outline and there'll be no difference from the usual auto aim."

It also points out that the feature doesn't work in sniper mode and requires at least one of the vehicles visual markers to be detected.

FYI, it fails about as often as the vanilla auto aim fails to lock for any vehicle.

Perhaps you can find it in you to stop crying now.

 

 

If you have a source that can counter this please do provide it, otherwise stow your sobbing BS.

 

A "15 degree cone"?!  :facepalm:

There goes your credibility. :sceptic:

WHY THE ?!?@# is there even a MOD hub...……………………………..just ban all mods     how is any of those new mods banned an advantage...… please   tell me...… if literally everyone could use them then there is NO advantage ppl     so sad I ever spent any mula or even downloaded this game.....their liberal policies make laugh...…… everyone and anyone could use it but if ya did you had an advantage cuz others are stupid and chose not to use!    gesh

 

well you see... any game ever made ends up with outside mods..  not all are bad ,,  in fact WG has adopted a few of them into the game...    a cheat is a cheat when only a very few know to use it...   as long as they are published and able to be used by the masses it is no longer a cheat...

 

this new ban will only hurt a few players...    it will be fun to watch some stats drop. lol  the arty one will kill many of our best players..    I will miss the tank direction one a bit, but other then that I do not cheat and my stats prove it...lol does yours....

the one mod that needs to be removed is auto aim..  m4 Shermans never had a laser lock..  lots of tanks before the 70's did not have them, only in wot...

 

as far as bans we never know who why or when most of the time... however when we do hear, the who it always seems to be a great player...who put stuff on youtube..  I always thought the ban came because of the recording program they used set off the alarm...

 

it's all good this only effects a very few

Right click auto aim is not a mod.

Its part of vanilla and has been from the beginning.

 

WoT is not a simulator.

yep and it needs to go..  I knew it was always there but still as cheats go this one is right up there...call it what you wish, but this one thing is the most over looked cheat in the game...   this one mods removal would wreak the hierarchy totally...   can you even play a wheelie without using it,,   I use it and it is a cheat bottom line

Looks like you use it too much. :trollface:

 

Seriously, it doesn't lead and for anything but circling an enemy close in its virtually useless.

Minimap markers are ok (as it's part of vanilla), the ones WG has mentioned that are not allowed refer to the main playing field.
