Third party programs that manipulate gameplay by granting an unfair advantage are not welcome in World of Tanks. Those who install these programs inevitably spoil the experience for other players, which is why we're doing all we can to weed out those who do so willingly.
Since our last update regarding the Fair Play policy, we've penalized an additional 695 accounts for using prohibited software and banned another 174 permanently for habitually breaking the policy.
Cheaters Get Banned!
Getting flagged for using third party software for the first time will result in a warning and a seven day ban.
Breaking the policy for the second time will end in a permanent ban.
For those who think cheating is OK, we hope the potential risk of losing an account you've built for years will help you reconsider.
Ensuring fair play will always be our top priority. However, in the end it takes two to squash the use of harmful mods: players and developers. Stay away from illegal programs and help us foster a great gaming environment!
