How WG Detects Cheaters & Forbidden Mods

Translated from Russian by Plazmakeks. Original author: PolarFox. Made some grammar fixes. This is posted in order to raise awareness and that WG will see it.

Hello everybody. I would like to comment on the situation with the last ban wave. A bit late, but I was really busy with the adaptation and recoding of mods for the new patch.

How you get banned:

  1. You installed (maybe as a part of some mod pack) in the past, time span between the last ban wave and this one, any kind of mods that are being monitored. This could have been a month ago, never mind – you are on the list.

  2. If you played recklessly and you got reported frequently – probably, you will go for a manual sorting and moderation.

  3. You are on the winning list of some event with prizes. Lately all prize positions are being checked.

So, long story short – at the moment we have no data that anyone is being banned if they follow the 3 rules from above. The mod is safe (PF, BW, AVS), but in case of point 2 and 3 – manual sorting and moderation. Simply play carefully, do not play in any events and wave around with your aimbot all around – and all will be fine.


In other words, use mods carefully and incognito. Do not follow/catch targets 400 meters away. Use that sniper mod from time to time. Do not click on the damn minimap when something is broken somewhere etc. When you use certain mods you tend to play and act differently. Just try to blend in as much as you can. FFS, if you are trying to hide something, make a damn effort about it.

    1. If WG doesnt want to spend time fighting cheaters ; then we might as well encourage people to cheat.
      Maybe if everyone cheats they will react. Or if they don’t at least everyone will be equal.

      1. There’s a big player turnover, you should know that. If new players get wind of WoT cheating culture then they’ll cheat from the start.

        Which is probably the case so you’re right afterall. It’s a moot point.


  1. Is it only me or is this translation terrible bad?
    “How you get banned:” followed by ” at the moment we have no data that anyone is being banned if they follow(!!!!!) the 3 rules from above”.

    Other than that no real news:
    Its basically: you get banned if you install specific mods that WG can detect automatically or if you behave very suspicious and WG checks you manually.


  2. 1) WG should simply disable mods, and implement a few extra most useful ones into the base client.

    2) Yes, the translation is horrible. Plazi is my countryman, it seems weird that our guy would translate Russian as bad as this (he probably just Google translated it though…)

  3. I have been using aimbot since 2011, cause for me the aiming part is not so good. I mostly played RTS so no shooting experience. I always let my aimbot do the shooting and I just drive and watch the minimap. So far I had good results in events like the National Apac shit, I don’t even know the name of the event but I am in top 10 at tier 8 and top 15 in tier 10. Whatever suck my asshole and lick my balls I use aimbot so what WG doesn’t check shit they need to make money so they sell stolen tires to little children in Africa.


  4. you talk so much pish son….just stop eating those crayons. You’ve never had a good result either with or without aimbot, you’re 44% winrate is as good as you will ever achieve but that’s ok us decent playrs need garbage like you to farm so keep on failing 🙂


  5. Sebastianul, don’t you think it would be nice to leave a strong statement at the end of the article that you do not support and do not encourage people to follow these cheating “best practices” ? Without it, it kinda looks like you are on their side and trying to help them…

    1. To be honest, I said in the beginning that the sole reason of me posting this is to give WG an insight into how cheaters think. They need to be creative and find a way to kill all cheats at once…


  6. I like point 3.

    That, is at least something.

    I discovered my own way of cheating:
    I bought a Defender! He, He, He!
