For the Record: Insider Talks: Aimbot, Fury
Hello everyone, after yesterday’s FTR post about the Aimbot cheat, the Insider decided to investigate, what the developers think and know of this cheat. He found actually, that the developers know about it. On the internal WG server, there is a file repository and one of the files, contained within, is the aimbot. The developers investigated it recently, but basically, what they think about it (a footnote in the file) is: “bannable, but almost useless”. The reasons cited for this mod being useless are the chaotic aiming. They actually tested the mod in real battles and the testing report mentions that the aimbot is capable of targetting even obscured targets, it is inaccurate (doesn’t always aim for the weakspots), on higher speeds it won’t hit anything and generally is no better than the autoaim (sometimes it aims at wrong places). Oh, and the Fury Sherman will be actually SOLD to players, at least on Xbox 360 WoT. Here are the details of the upcoming bundle: Includes: - USA Tier VI Sherman Fury Medium Tank - 100% Crew - Medium-Caliber Tank Gun Rammer - Vertical Stabilizer Mk 1 - Improved Ventilation Class 2 - 71 AP M62 Shells - 15 HVAP M93 Shells - 1 Garage Slot - 7 Days of Premium Account Fury hits theaters this fall, and for a limited time you can add the M4A3E8 “Fury” from the movie to your World of Tanks garage and experience it for yourself! This Tier VI premium tank features a unique appearance and comes with a 100% trained crew, a full set of equipment, and 7 days of Premium time to make sure you’re maximizing your Silver and experience earnings while showing off this flashy medium tank. Please note that this bundle is only purchasable one time per account. The Insider thinks that the appearance of this bundle for Xbox means it’s likely such a bundle will appear for WoT PC as well, but is not sure. Oh and one last things – it looks like Wargaming will donate a portion of the money they get for the abovementioned bundle to fix the Sherman, damaged during the Fury filming.
