Countermeasures against forbidden modifications.


Best answer

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.

Well done OrsonES, and Gaijin team. Glad I could be of help with all the successful reports I sent in via the server replay system and getting these accounts banned, and my videos.

Why is there green players? They were using allowed modifications and subsequently unbanned?

 

It's explained in the table.

Hi there noticed some suspisious activity where one player namely Onberfrest managed to get 20 kills and 0 deaths in ground rb , 
Some of the kills look legitimate but others are through many bushes or simply not possible for the average player. replay linked below

There can be multiple people with the same spelling/name

 

For example

somenamehere - pc

*somenamehere - psn

^somenamehere - xbox

 

but it doesn't mean they are the same person.

 

So lets say you see a xbox player named " ^xx_WarthunderGuy_xx " and you play a new game with a player called " xx_WarthunderGuy_xx ", doesn't mean they are the same person.

 

Hope that makes some sense for you

Good job!!!

Just one comment:

Given the "technology world main languaje" is english, it would be nice to enforce a spellable roman alphabet nickname as a universal (main) one, to each and every player in War Thunder, maybe composed with a numbered suffix, and maybe having another "domestic" own language one, but it is absolutely awful and useless to any human being to read just numbers and/or weird symbols as people names!!!

And there are a lot of humanly unreadable nicknames lately, like part numbers, or serial numbers, or telephone numbers, or ID numbers, and so on... but those are not NAMES...!!!

Just a thought trying to keep our sanity.

Thank you very much.

It is sad that some players need to look for unfair ways to find success in the game. I spend time viewing replays when a player's score seems way over the top compared to everybody else. Don't get me wrong, there are great players-I have reviewed their gameplay and marvel at their skill. But, there are some players whose results defy what is logical game behavior and outcomes.  For example, their ability to track opponents and then engage them without line of sight(LOS) nor intelligence (Intel) from their teammates is demonstrated in the replay. This behavior can be obvious, for example, the player sits behind buildings, "looking through them", and moves perfectly into position to intercept and destroy an opponent. I have watched them adjust their movement (without reasonable knowledge) to intercept opponents who are closer. Often their canon barrel pointing in exactly the right direction to get off the first shot. These players wreck the game. I realize, reviewing and reporting other player's behavior, when it defies what is logical, is a regular requirement of the game. Hey folks, somebody is always watching.

Why do they do it? Make's no sense, to win by cheating when you know you got their by not by your own merit, experience, or even your own luck at least.

 

Those really impossible incredible shots, that when you look at them on replay, and you say, "How could that work?"  I have reported in game report etc.  I admit I can only use my best judgement, not being a cheater I don't often know for sure? The best I can do is report  when something looks incredibly strange and abnormal.

I wonder how many of these are low tier alt accounts clubbing seals and how many of these are primary account people with years and years of invested playtime. Its almost sad, were it not so infuriating. There are plenty of vehicles in this game that are considered OP, can people not just play those to stroke their Epeen? why must people take it ten steps farther and pull this garbage. 400+people is not a small portion of the community.

Most are new accounts used by trolls that don't care about being caught. The majority of the ones that use them for a long time are careful and try not to get caught (at least in replays). WT really needs a new AC system imo. Anyways, it's good to see NextClover and BunnyofDeath finally banned. Been so long since I reported them and met both plenty of times, they really took their time on them.

It is interesting to note that there are some high level players that get banned, and that they tend to have high Thunderskill ratings (no, I don't have any proper statistics, just based on a few ones I've seen), which, if correct, implies that the cheats do work. Like in this months listing Turandot_M1ng: Level 100, T-80U, M1A1, Leo2A5, F-100D, MiG-19PT and ranked by Thunderskill as 'Excellent player' in RB. I can't help wondering for how long he has been cheating...
Anyways, I'm happy that cheaters get banned, so that not-so-spectacular players like myself don't get even more stomped than what they fairly should :016:

Hi so posting mi question here :)

 

been doing some thinking and want to know how do you spot if someone is cheating. Using AIM bots or some other cheats?

 

As far as I know AIMBOTS are the biggest but not too advantageous cheat in war thunder?

 

Reason1

 

I started thinking about this as I got killed from 1km bi a YAK-3 with first shot barley missing and second hitting me hard and killing me. Getting a hit 1km away going 400 km/h rarely happens but, crits and death?

 

Ok I was in a zero but still it`s something new to me. But there is a good chance it was a lucky shot.

 

I get damaged sometimes by P-47 or P-51 spraying and praying but this was one miss and then kill and no more tracers. I would expect a longer spray on such a distance?

 

Reason 2

 

I`m interested in a new  game Hell let loose and as they are currently fighting the cheaters really hard I was reading on the problem of online games and I stumbled on some aim-boot website that has war thunder also listed.

 

So been doing some googling around this problem as I only played WOW back in the day and hate online games but war thunder is the golden exception.

 

To continue  

the site has a good rep and some interesting you-tube videos. And I see Gaijin banned around 445 accounts again and 464 a month before so they are fighting this and maybe if more off us know what to look for maybe we can help.

 

Or at least not accuse others that are just really good :)  for instance if I get to fight WhooptieDo I might assume he is cheating as he is so good :on_target: 

 

 

Reason 3

 

Also I stumbled on a video 

 

Its for the game service anti cheat BattlEye and there ware some false bans that later got reinstated. So I see there are a couple of green names on the ban list we got a couple days ago and I`m starting to get a-little worried as I spent a lot of money time and energy into mi account that this might happen to me.

 

Reason 3

 

I got banned from a match

 

I did get banned out of a match for team killing one time but I shot a fellow teammate while on a tail of an enemy plane trying to save the teammate. One or two bullets missed the enemy plane hitting the friendly and I got a crit on mi teammates zero and as zeros are made from paper he started to burn and I got one nice kill from saving him and later a team kill.

 

I was shocked what has happened as I was flying alone getting to some enemies.

 

And the incident where I bailed the teammate out was one or two min ago. So after another min I get sent to a lobby and get a team-kill punishment.

 

This is mi second one. The first one was an accident too. So false positives do happen (well mi bullets did hit the players plane but still). 

 

I got team killed bi mistakes also.

 

Reason 4

 

I use programs like cheat engine as it helps with testing strategies on games like total war warhammer or EU4 etc.Can this make a false positive if its left running in a background? The game is server based so this program can`t mess whit the game but still its a concern for me.

 

And all cheaters deny cheating same as falsely accused gamers and false positives are happening.

 

PS. If the comment is not approved can I get an answer from the moderators for this question.

 

Thanx
