For the Record: Tanitha (WG ASIA Producer) Explains IM Rigging And Punishment
Source: http://forum.worldoftanks.asia/index...sion-system%2F Hello everyone, Tanitha, a producer on the ASIA server, confirmed what we suspected all along: that uncovering IM rigging is a lengthy and tedious process, that’s barely functional. What he wrote: Dear Players. While you are free to work together with your clan, mates, country mates, friends, and team mates, you are only permitted to do so with those WITHIN YOUR OWN TEAM IN GAME. Collaborating and working together with*clan, mates, country mates, friends, and players*that are on the enemy team, is prohibited and against our fair play principles, and considered “cheating”. *And with 30 players within a game*most with replays enabled*and such cheating being obvious within a replay,*detection rates are very high, with a high likely-hood of sanctions being issued. Currently enforcement tools on the new features are limited. For example, there is no big red button,, labeled .. “Ban this player for 7 days, remove major rewards obtained, reset their personal mission progress back to Zero” If there was,*WG Asia would be leading the way in pressing it… But unfortunately reality isn’t utopia. *So instead issues such as this, need tackling in a multitude of different ways. Syncing the team internally, so a unified approach happens within our team, IE syncing support, forums, all languages, Etc. Syncing globally, with the producers of NA/EU/RU/KR and development in Minsk. Voicing the concerns of the Asia players on this topic, to other servers and development. Upping the priority and urgency of development features, such as the big red button mentioned above …*“Ban this player for 7 days, remove major rewards obtained, reset their personal mission progress back to Zero” Obtaining the facts and statistics, analytics. Not only on the 8 currently caught cheating in personal missions, but also on the entire personal mission system. Analyzing the 8 players caught cheating, to ascertain what rewards they have received so far, and what progress they have made within the personal mission system. Etc *Due to global timezone differences, the above isn’t quick.*It takes a few days usually. In the mean time, the 8 caught cheating, were banned for 3-7 days. Now while the above continues in the background for mid/long term solutions that require development, and require publishers like WG Asia upping the importance and priority of such development on a*regular basis on your behalf….. We now need to look at,, what can be done, with the tools available. For the 8 already caught cheating the personal mission system*on their first offense, and other’s trying to follow in their footsteps.. The sanctions are as follows. Seven (7) *Day game bans placed. (those previously issued 3 days will be extended to 7 days) Removal of their last Major reward obtained *(IE tank / female crews / which will not be able to be re-achieved permanently) Not prohibiting further use of the Personal Mission System at the moment, as such options do not exist at this time, we will work on pushing for this development. Future repeat offenses from those already sanctioned as above will recieve Thirty*(30) *Day game bans placed.* Removal of their last Major reward obtained being removed. (IE tank / female crews / which will not be able to be re-achieved permanently) Not prohibiting further use of the Personal Mission System at the moment, as such options do not exist at this time, we will work on pushing for this development. And then further continuation.. Permanent game bans placed. Cheating, in any way shape or form, is not permitted. We will continue to fight the crusade on your behalf on the two fronts .. Preventing any form of cheating with the tools and resources available, And, upping the priority of new development features / tools to better eradicate any form of cheating. As we here at WG Asia , know the importance of a clean and fun gaming environment, we, like you, are hard core gamers ourselves.. Okay Tanitha, let’s play a game. The same system should be in action on all the servers, right? Okay. In last two weeks I recieved around 20 reports of game rigging. About one half is conclusive (definitely rigging), the other half – meh, I don’t know. I’ll take three of the most blatant cases from last week and will be checking them EVERY day to find out, whether these players got banned or not. Two weeks is enough time to punish the riggers, yes? After that, I’ll publish the names and replays – and you bet these guys will not be punished until then. Should be an interesting experiment.
