Someone used the WASD hack, can he be banned?!?! 

The Gentleman's Club

 

I left not because of the Gearing, but that Gearing was a ship I loved, and I sold it.

This made me realize I no longer loved this game as I once did, and it's to move on.

Gearing is symbol of my enjoyment of this game, if you didn't catch that.

This has been a long time in coming. I greatly welcome this ruling.

The only thing that may be remotely considered unfair is the last known position and heading mod. It seems to be borderline, depending on people's definition of "unfair." Everything else is pretty much cosmetic.

I believe everything is Aslains is cool (folks please correct me if I am wrong!). We are absolutely not here to trick you by not telling what is illegal and then banning you. If you are unsure about something, please send us an inquiry and we will let you know for sure.

 

I promise that my goal is not to just ban folks! We only want to prevent people from deliberately using things that are outright cheats. If you are unsure about a mod, send a ticket. You can mark my name on it, if you like, We will get back to you with a concrete answer. We're not trying to surprise you and ban you. We only want to change the behavior of those who are using a program that is totally unfair - we don't want to get rid of players who are unsure!

This is available on the minimap planned for the next major update. You can see it if you check out the currently going public test. I think it is safe to say WG is okay with this one. Sorry.

I think last known position may be added into the vanilla client as it is in WoT.

Not sure if the heading mod works. Heard that its broken.

I want to assure you that for myself, at least, you don't have to worry about that. What I was getting pissy about - and I'm sure many others were - was the blantant show and use of these hacks in game. I remember even watching some youtuber show this crap off and it really irked me. I play without Mods, much like you mentioned in your prior post, and and I severally distrust anyone who does because it feels like they're trying to gain an advantage; mods dealing with changing aesthetics are the exception, as they are dealing with how things look.

 

Regardless, this news, along with more premium selections, has made me a very happy customer/player of Wargaming. I'm extremely satisfied you guys are actually listening to the player base - and not just the people with "special" tags.

Well I can tell you for certain that anything that includes an aim assist mod is on the list. If it has other components and you want to tell me that "I've disabled that part, I swear" I don't want to hear it. I play all WG games with zero mods (possibly because I come from console where they aren't possible) but there is nothing SO CRUCIAL in your life that you must use an illegal mod to get it. Hell, if there is part of an illegal package that you want, like some crosshair thing, post on the forums asking for someone to provide it without the other parts that are illegal. Pretty sure someone can hook you up.

 

Now that you have added cross hairs, my major reason for using Aslian is gone. Still would like more data, but looks like you've addressed that in 5.6 so....Well done...:teethhappy:

Thank You, Thank you, Thank You... ad infinitum 

 

While I personally can't say I have ever seen anyone using one or been hit with one. Removing those who cheat can only help the community. 


Watching two Battleships duel it out is like watching two old people fornicate. It's slow, sloppy and not very satisfying. 

Watching two Destroyers duel it out is like watching two orphans fighting over the last scraps on the floor.

A bit too far don't you think?

Not all mods are bad.

Great.  I have never understood why, as the thread states, people would cheat to win in a video game. How the hell can you feel good about your gameplay if it is, in part, dependent on cheating? Just do not understand people like that.

Thanks guys!

 

I have to admit I was a little nervous to post this, considering how upset some folks were previously. But not so nervous that I wasn't going to do it, because it's the right thing to do. I am a gamer through and through, just like you. People who cheat piss me off, just like you. I get it that people want to win, but cheating is just a super lame way to do it in my opinion. I'd rather be unpopular while standing up for what I think is right, than popular for paying lip service to crap that I don't really believe in!

 

And this isn't just about me - Wargaming is taking this stand - I am just the messenger but I whole heartedly support it.

I believe you made the right decision. I believe everyone deserve a 2nd chance if they get caught cheating, hopefully they will change their ways. But if they don't learn the first time, well you know :trollface:
