Fair Play Policy (Illegal Mods-WG Q&A)

Q: Are reload timers illegal?
A: Yes.

Q: The ability to lock onto a target that isn’t highlighted, is that illegal?
A: This is now considered a cheat.

Q: Can I use a mod that allows me to zoom out more?
A: Yes, you can use a mod which allows you to zoom out further from your own tank.

Q: Can we use mods that change the color of destroyed tanks?
A: Yes, you can use mods that change the color of destroyed tanks.

Q: Is Arty Battle Assist still approved by Wargaming to use?
A: Yes, we’re still okay with it.

Q: Can Wargaming ban me without giving reason and/or evidence?
A: When we ban someone for using cheats, we state in the message that a forbidden game function was used. We don’t provide any details on when a player was detected or what kind of cheat was detected because we don’t want to compromise our detection methods.

Q: Do Warnings/Bans/Points on your account ever get removed or reset?
A: Its 2 strikes and you’re out. For the first offence the player gets a 7-days ban, for the 2nd – permaban. There are no plans to reset flags over a time period for now.

Q: When will the cheat detection system start working?
A: It is up and running(as of 0.9.16)

    Thanks for rolling out a patch so quick, is there a change log for this it has the same description as 9.17.0.0

  • Angel

    i cant open the event boxes with this modpack in the garage, please fix it!

    • John C

      I could but I don’t use any garage skin mods, maybe just install without them until the event is over.

    • WildCat

      Go to your hangar manager and change it to-
      H07 NEWYEAR 2015 – and
      you will then be able to play the event… open boxes, decorate snow
      tank and tree, etc. Hope this info helps.

      • Angel

        thanks! It works, but I already got all my nine boxes so I dont have to play anymore! It actually works

  • Make_Tracks

    Hello Solo,

    Thank you for your continued supply of mods for this game. IT IS APPRECIATED! I tried to download the update #1, but it says it is not compatible. Dont know why?

  • Mox

    Have you considered adding Roman’s Projects, Tank Icon Maker, I use this every time after I use your install http://roman.st/TankIconMaker?lang=en. that way I actually get the Icon’s I want.

  • John Smithy

    can anyone let me know what “maingun” does/means? I don’t understand what it is….

    • Francisco Scaramanga

      the best gun on that vehicle or 1st gun on the vehicle you get without research

      • John Smithy

        no I mean the mod. it says “maingun” at the top of the screen then followed by a number like 1000.

  • FreedomGone

    From direct reading of the FPP I believe you jumped the gun on the extended aim-lock. The FPP states “Auto-aim, or “aimbots” that provide more functionality than the “aim lock” in the vanilla client, specifically those that aim at the enemy’s weak spots or automatically lead the aim so the offending player can focus on maneuvering their tank ” Note the word ‘SPECIFICALLY’ which equals the word ‘precisely’. The focus here was “aiming at enemy’s weak spots” or automatically leading the aim. Extended aim-lock does none of those things. I wouldn’t have made a point of this except for Wargaming being very specific in their criteria of what AUTO-AIM and Aimbots do. The removed extended target acquisition mod did and does none of those things. I know people will want to argue the points preceding the “specification” but its because of that specification we understand what they meant by “provide more functionality than the “aim lock” in the vanilla client”. All other considerations outside of them of the “specifics” are reading things in that aren’t there. IMO.

      Did you also read the linked Q/A on reddit (linked at the bottom of the FPP page) where they state that mods allowing to activate autoaim without having the enemy tank outlined is now considered a cheat?

  • WildCat

    I think Freedom makes some good points. There is a video on youtube where someone showed the differences between the two. For those having GARAGE problems with the current Winter Holiday theme/event- FESTIVE ATMOSPHERE in their garage. Go to your hangar manager and change it to-
    H07 NEWYEAR 2015 – and you will then be able to play the event… open boxes, decorate snow tank and tree, etc. Hope this info helps. Keep up the GREAT work Solo.
    Cheers all…

  • What does the gear or sprocket next to some player’s name mean? I don’t remember installing anything that messed with the in game player panel.

  • John Smithy

    Milky I’m still having the issue with freezing on loading into battle. It happens intermittently. I did some digging and there are lots of issues reporting it going back several patches. This thread says it has to do with certain mods. is there any way you can isolate and fix the problem? I like your modpack but being AFK for 1 out of every 6 or 7 battles isn’t doing my stats any favors and i’m worried about getting banned for inactivity.

    • John Smithy

      I seem to have resolved the issue by removing all of the mods except the ones I absolutely need. have played about 100 games since then with no issues. I am slowly adding in the mods 1 at a time and playing for 10-20 games to see if any issues occur. I believe it might be caused by xvm or a damage counter

  • Hini

    Hello where can i change the “caps lock” put the middle the map to change to another key ?

  • Inglorious_Beast

    In fact of the policy statements ”

    Fair Play Policy (Illegal Mods-WG Q&A)”

    I do agree perfect with the most of statements!

    BUT …

    It isnt serious and in EU-countries legal to make this fact!

    Q: Can Wargaming ban me without giving reason and/or evidence?
    A: Whenwe ban someone for using cheats, we state in the message that a
    forbidden game function was used. We don’t provide any details on when a
    player was detected or what kind of cheat was detected because we don’t
    want to compromise our detection methods.”

    If u ban any- or somebody u have to tell details! If not you try to take a dictatorship of rights! This may works in Belowrus or putins russia! But it isnt lgall in EU-europe! If ahve a seesemble and archievied a lot of fact wot was doing this. It needs just some drops mor of water in my big container and i will bring it to EU- Consumer car componies . WOT … take rules of nations and countires! Ok u are not EU and i will not make alone a action at law against wot. But if i will do recognize more and more this policy i will make steps to show you the end of your own made laws. And a Europe without Wot becomes just a liitle bit poor, Wot wihtout Eu isnt going broke or bankrupt! But it will be a hard beat. Wot ist contractor and we pay for. If contractor often change the rules of engagemet it is close neaerby fraud. If we pay cammou to an tank par example and wot steals next update the ability to be a well camouflageg tank, the investment was senseless. Par example in case of this case it is normaly to give back player the credits or gold by removing cmouflage. And this is just one example in a long row. here in Germany was a lot games banned by consumers protection institutions! This is no idea it is fact. So become serious and fair simply. We all respect and understand that wot have to change rules of engagement by some tanks by making updates. But we will not ever respect to be and become your ping pong ball between your ideas.

    With respect and observation!

    Simply me
