📄“I admit,” – Kirsanov said, answering the judge’s question whether he admits guilt.

Witnesses in the case did not attend the hearing. Their testimony was read out by the public prosecutor.
As it turned out, Kirsanov was caught through the “test purchase” search event. The detective purchased the cheat, and then received download links.

  1. For a game that is this old
    its kinda late to do what they did
    now they should implement an anti-cheat program within their games to prevent this from happening again

    1. They have by design. Programs that adjust aim, show hidden opponents, change reload timing , speed, etc. do not work with WoT in principle – all is server-side You can’t protect agaunst external software\hardware that replaces user , because you can’t protect from user

  2. 670 million Russian rubles!!!!!!!!
    oh right, ruble sucks. 12.5million?
    That’s what wg earns on a lazy sale
