World of Tanks has had a decent popularity in Korea, its age range is a little higher than other games but it definitely had a healthy population.
War Gaming Korea has been known to be pretty strict in banning players that abused in missions, and hacked in game.
However this one guild called [PAPA] was infamous in the community for sharing Illegal Mods (Aimbot, Object Maphack, Reload) with each other and never getting banned. (The name meanings papa=father, meaning they are wealthy old players)
Finally, because multiple PAPA members have been caught abusing missions (Letting their guild member reach 160000 damage in T-22 mission), one guy decided to visit the War Gaming Korea HQ.
He has spoken with the company and this was what they said:
(Regarding the Aimbot)
The hacks have been banned as of 2015.5, and they were using it in April, we fully acknowledge that there were other players that have received permabans in April, but for the PAPA members, we do not know if they were using it with bad intent.
(About the mission abuse)
We know about this, however how do we know if he was abusing with a good intention or a bad intention? If he did it with bad intention we should ban him. But he did it without knowing, how can we ban him?
They have also told the person that visited the company “Don’t come anymore, you are only wasting your time”
Now every player, even the professional players who have been playing competitively for multiple years are all using aimbot, streaming it on the Korean streaming platform to show their disgust with how War Gaming Korea has handled it.
Now War Gaming Korea is going on full offensive, they are permabanning every player using the illegal mods, and they even personally track down the player’s main accounts and give it permabans as well.
Giant number of players are quitting as I write this right now, are localized servers usually bad in management?
PAPA members are still abusing illegal mods as of yesterday, 1300 rating member’s video
UPDATE: Looks like QUAKE members rigged the missions too!
