Countermeasures against forbidden modifications.

my plane got dragged in a very improbable way straight into the front of the enemy plane making it move to the side in less than 0.5 secs moving like 50 or 70 mts... someone or a moderator ( since someone need to approve this comment) how do i report this suspicious external program or modification? and sorry the bother

If I can just make this clear, it is important to understand - such modifications are simply not possible, it is NOT POSSIBLE to boost your server side footprint (speed, hitting power, defensive power etc), what is possible is that client side info regarding position of opponent etc can be enhanced illegally with third party apps, usually unsuccesfully.

 

Regardless, if you suspect attempted cheats you should refer to our online reporting system here - http://warthunder.com/en/tournament/replay/  and use the available reporting system to log the exact game and user it concerns. Please do not spam this functionality with standard frustration and accusations as it will only complicate our current successes and intervention. Be sure it is a legitimate complaint as what is perceived as a cheat will in most cases in standard play siimply be a lucky shot or a situationally aware quaility player.

 

Thank you Stona.

In January, an additional 438 users were permanently banned for using third-party modifications in violation of the user agreement - use of prohibited modifications. (EULA).

 

Recently, we introduced a system of reports based on replays. With its help you have not only reported suspicious players but also you have improved the modification detection algorithm. Such an algorithm is based on a machine learning system which allowed us to detect almost all remaining players who use forbidden modifications (even if they had not yet been reported).

 

The specific patterns that we used are based on the difference in behaviour of a player who uses only “fair” information (real visibility) from the client and a player who also has server-side information on his monitor (such information contains more data). We have implemented this algorithm in a very conservative way, in order to avoid false positives. Every suspicious player was also checked by our employees after he had been detected by the program.

 

We will continue to improve our algorithm and will make sure that your gaming experience remains comfortable.

Wow, that's way more users than I thought would get put into the list last month...it's unfortunate to see that people actually try to use these 3rd party applications. :/ 

 

Although! It's great to see that action IS being taken against these users, I'm sure many will be happy to see this.

Is there a way to tell if a player reported by me has been punished or was I wrong?

We dont give any information like that regarding bans or chat bans to players.

Awesome, ran into a blatant cheater last week and I think half the people in our team reported him. (when someone can kill myself and two others by literally shooting through a entire forest, you know what's up).

 

Quite sad so many people are cheating though, espcially with a game that's not quite as mainstream population wise and has modes where using your brain and finding people is half the fun.

 

I mean, all they're proving is what complete tossers they are.

~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 would be nice if the visibilty anti-cheat didn't annoy legit players so much...

 

But for the other systems, great work. I think we can get loosen the visibility system now that better anti-cheat algorithms have been implemented.

You could do something like Valve does in CS:GO, informing that someone that you have reported has been banned, so that people knew wheather they actually do something good and they should keep reporting people or they are vasting the admins' time looking through the reports.. But oh well. Everything is fine as long as you guys keep cheaters away :)

Good work, nice to see a real change cleaning up the game from cheaters! props  :good:

my question now is that does Gaijin check your hardware of cheats or is it solely based on replays?
