I was just in a battle where a red team member was reading our chat while we were in team chat and not in All chat. He said it was an Aslain mod and was more than happy to demonstrate it.

How is this acceptable? Does WOWS see this as merely breaking Enigma or Purple and therefore OK?

It seems to me this will hurt what little team play there now exists if we cannot safely communicate among our own ships.

If you have the replay, you should probably send it to support. I am not aware of any mod that currently supports this.

It is possible that there was someone on your team passing the message along to the other team through another means of communication.

My first thought is that you were being trolled.

But yeah, send in the replay on a support ticket, because that would be a cheat for sure if it's real.

It sounds more like he was in voice contact with someone on your team which is against the rules.

Then there is no reason why that player would bring up how he used Aslain's mod to be able to view team chat from the other team as per what the OP stated.

If there is a mod, then it's not approved.

No, most likely a player is communicating with another comms app like discord, etc.

WG offered in game comms voice, but nobody uses it because it could be recorded by WG.

In game spying is never going to go away.

There are too many ways to circumvent the prevention.

But if you have proof, send it in to support.

I'll send it to support. That is a good suggestion.

I was mad enough to quit playing till near the end of that game.

Radar, CV, etc, are one thing and a part of the game dynamic. Reading others mail isn't, IMO.

I would be willing to bet you were trolled. Buuuuuut, I could be wrong.

I think US Naval Intelligence c.1942 would disagree.

I do get what you're saying about this game, however.

Maybe you had a streamer on your team. 

This is the most likely reason if they were reading the OP's chat.

Aslain has a couple of chat mods and neither of them has anything like that.  That makes the claim either a troll or stream sniping.

And then... if the op has two PCs and Two Accounts...  there is the sync-dropped CV.

They can also be Stream-sniping off a member of your team (gives a few seconds delay).

Doubt there is an Aslains mod.

Is it against the rules? Then what is WG going to do with all the sync dropped clans with divs on both side?

Yeah, I know it is but after someone mentioned stream sniping, which is why many streamers cover the minimap in the stream, that sounds like a more likely reason.

There isn't and Aslain goes out of his way to ensure that the mods are legal.

If someone was stream sniping they would not really need to read the chat, because they could see where you all are on the streamers map. 
perhaps by claiming he was reading your chat he could make you paranoid enough to stop using the chat, hampering the coordination of your team.

Reason is simple.  That's EXACTLY what one would say to troll 'em.  Use team chat and then say they're using a mod.

Seems doubtful, more likely he had an alt or friend on your team.
