Countermeasures against forbidden modifications.

There is no need to record and post replays with gameplay of players you suspect for using 3rd party apps. We will appreciate if you report them via server replay functionality on our main website. 

For more information, please check this article.

Just seen my name on the list today...was shocked at first but kinda makes sense.  I contacted support over the weekend as I couldn't access my account or the game.  Someone was using my account and after I proved who I said I was I was allowed back into the game and managed to spend most of Sunday playing in the April fools event. (Which was awesome)

 

While I was taking a break from last year, someone hacked my account, enrolled me in a Squadron (PAVOR), deleted all my friends..I gained some new friends, all with Russian names.  

 

I don't know how they did it, but they put on 2-step verification...so got that taken off and I've just re-enabled it with my phone.

 

So whether it's good/bad fortune that I decide to come back to Warthunder over the weekend to play the event on Sunday and then get banned by Monday...  I'm mad as hell to be honest...I've spent hundreds of pounds over the years on this game.

 

I've emailed Vlad in support again, who got my account back for me...and hopefully I can prove it wasn't me cheating as i've not played the game since last year.

 

I just hope my name hasn't become known as a cheating scumbag while it was stolen... :(

Thank you very much for your work, and for answering our comments!!!

We know all this detective jobs about finding cheats and malicious actions is not easy to do, and seems to be more close to Big Data engines that to the game engine itself. So maybe it is one of the next challenges.

We, the loyal and fair players, really appreciate your efforts.

Thanks a lot!!

Hi !

 

How can I report a suspicious cheaper ?

I always save my replays and check what I've doing wrong and what others are doing right.

The I note someone with same plane as me (P-51) but instead of short amount on munition (500 rounds) with long reload (25s, i guess)

this guy seems to have infinite ammo! He shot down dozens of big airplanes without reloads ! While I shot a few and have to wait long time to reload to get back shooting, he was always shooting.

 

It may be false positive report, but WTF this guy was doing ? There was a way to check ammo/reload hacks?

You can always send the replay to one of us Game Masters.  Also, please provide us with a link to the server replay since that is a more accurate account since a replay from your game file can only show what you see and in a lot of cases, isn't always accurate, due to ping, packet loss, etc.  

 

Also, keep in mind that sometimes, even if your crews are fully aced, a player can seem to "disappear" if you see them at a distance.  This is due to them being far enough away from you or a teammate.  For instance, you might see a plane 20 km away from you then suddenly he disappears.  His appearance was due to one of your teammates being close enough to see them and the player disappears because your teammate that was close to him was shot down or flew out of visual range to him.

 

But please, continue to report players you may suspect of cheating and send the replays/server replay links to a Game Master via forum message.   Please do not send us a link to upload a replay.  It is best to just "drag" the file to the message where it says "Drag files here to attach, or choose files...." for replays from your replay files and a link to the server replay of that battle.

The 87 additional names in the spoiler are not displaying for me.

And thanks for the hard work done for eliminating those guys.
 

Edit: found them on the Russian forum,

makes now 842 accounts names listed ( duplicates removed ).

 

btw if you want to class all them in alphabetical order using Notepad++ :
 

Spoiler

 

- copy all the names provided in the various lists into a new text document, ( don't care for duplicates, just put the lists one after the other )

- once done select all ( ctrl+A) 

- go to TextFX menu, then TextFX Tools submenu

- Tick "+Sort ascending " and "+Sorts outputs only UNIQUE ( at column ) lines",

- Then click on "Sort lines case insensitive ( at column )" , like here : 

81260920170404154320.png

and done, listed alphabetically and duplicates removed  in case there is some.

With ace training and fully upgraded crew its around 10 seconds reload. After evry kill klick reload...and you arrive with fresh 500 bullets on evry target...

Voila...big cheat...ammocount are serverdata and probably not cheatable without access to gaijin Servers.

In my opinion it is important that the realistic squadron battle have to be removed until all this system have been taken down. it is too big the advantage of this tools.

I was using B0ris' Sound mod and I think got banned for it. Is there any way for me to appeal because I was level 80 and have been playing on that account since 2014? I understand that sounds in B0ris' soundpack are very loud so you can hear tanks from much farther away and I admit I was using this to my advantage, but I in no way thought that it was not allowed, much less worthy of a permanent ban.

 

Also, if you want proof, I have a YouTube channel with some War Thunder videos on it. I also really need my account back for YouTube videos D: Here is the link to my channel: *I removed the link, just google me if you need my channel*

 

Best of luck,

awSteven

That makes no since tho Gaijin CTO gave the support to sound mod to the Modding Communitys

http://www.moddb.com/mods/b0riss-sound-mod/forum/thread/support-for-sound-mod-in-warthunder-165153

I stopped using the Boris sound mod but i would like to know if the Boris sound mod is a get ban risk from the forum staff. If so i thank there should a topic to show a list of all the mods you can get ban for using because players don't know if these sound mods are a ban risk.

~440 is not much at all compared to the typical server population.

 

right now they are 60000 players online.  440 is just ~0.7% of that.

and 0.7% is not much at all.

 

 

 

It doent matter how many players are cheating % wise   -   the fact that players Pay to Play quite often in this game legitimately and that the other odd 90% are legit only to be conned by those who see fit to act in this manner  -- So 0.7% as you state in one month may be a small amount  but in the last 3 months how many have been caught>?

 

If youre happy or not - Im please that people are being caught - screw them and their cheating ways -  Big thumbs up to the people who report.

I have a general question about this. If I had some of these banned accounts on my blacklist, will they be automatically removed from it upon their permanent ban? It would save me the trouble of going through these lists of players to compare them with whom I've blacklisted.

I don't think so.

From today, 164 additional accounts have been permanently banned for using third-party modifications in violation of the user agreement - use of prohibited modifications. (EULA).

 

The introduction of the reporting system has again proved key in allowing players to participate in keeping the game clear of players who insist on trying to gain unfair advantage. The modification detection algorithm continues to improve.

 

Having an account permanently banned will result in a player losing everything in that account - Be warned! Thank you guys for your vigilance. o7

I keep seeing the list of names - good effort. But can you name the squadrons these player are in as I strongly suspect that certain teams are and have been instrumental in cheating as a group.
