Ever get a guy banned?

A couple years ago, I ran into a player a whole bunch of times that seemed to to things no one else could do. I don't mean that he was good –he magically knew where everyone was on the opposing side, routinely ammo-racked tanks when he hit them, etc.

I didn't think much of it until the 4-5th time playing him, and then I got suspicious. I started recording games. When I looked at his stats, they were mind-blowing, and seemingly impossible (81% overall win rate, 7 kills per death, like a 90% hit rate, and some tanks with 88%+ win rates in them. This to go with a 3800 win8)

How was he doing this? Well after playing with and against this dude for like the 20th time, and recording games, I discovered a lot of weird things

  1. If he was on the other side, 1-2 tanks on my side were either AFK, or driving around and not shooting. They would pull up behind me when I was in a TD, and then either the dude in question would shoot me, or arty would one-shot me. My coordinates were getting reported.
  2. Back when team damage was still a thing, guys on my side would shoot me dead. I would look at their stats, and they looked like bots. Accounts generated to do just that.
  3. Arty on my side would get killed collectively after taking the first shot. Again, coordinates being reported, or illegal tracer mods and red ball being used
  4. In one game, he ammo racked 4 players in a row, and one-shot them all.

To make a long story short, he was sync-dropping with other players and communicating coordinates offline. He was also using every illegal mod out there: tracers, lasers, eyeballs, etc.

And before you say I am crazy: I reported him and he was permanently banned from WOT almost immediately. This was back when WG would take action against players. This dude was #116 in the world and they perma-banned his ass. That's the level of cheating he was involved in.

PM me if you want to know his username
